I want to learn not only how deal with these feelings in an attempt to improve myself but also to understand the larger picturei know is there.
Perhapz i am asking the wrong questions....
On a very primitive level, understanding competition for genetic adaption and evolution is important. The rankings from competition assist in the
search process for the next generation. As a search algorithm it is very effective in maintaining the strongest attributes and explore other
possibilities when there is a near infinite number of possibilities. This is a deep and strong part of us and life and we cannot get away from it. The
biggest challenge I currently see for society is how to separate the conflict from competition.
Another consequence in the building blocks of life is diversity, no two places are exactly the same. Even amongst identical twins, different
characters do develop. Amongst different cultures the differences can be even more extreme with their different social norms, standards and
interpersonal skills. The presence of diversity is also another reality that makes things easier if you accept it.
On a more social level, I did find the Monarch Project helped with putting a lot of things into perspective. It does contain some very extreme events
and claims, but for as how and why some things are such a mess I found a lot of answers. There is some debate with the validity of such claims.
For example i got into an argument with guy recently who was being rude to clerk in a store simply because she was busy... Was i wrong for pointing
out his indiscretion...
I don't know, has he changed his behavior since? Having worked in a store myself I know there is a small percentage of customers that are a hassle,
just part of the job. Since working in security, as long as I do not have to call an ambulance it is all good.
