As babies we are very self-involved. We cry mightily when we don’t have our way and this in actuality does not change even as we grow into adulthood. When we are children we go through tantrums, as teenagers we act petulant and spoilt, then as adults we act very selfish, self-absorbed and sometimes angry. Lashing out at everyone and anything when we feel self-righteous and justified in our anger at not getting what we want or more accurately doing what we don’t want…. What We Really Don’t Want.
And as adults when we find ourselves doing what we really don’t want to do over and over and over again and we lack the tools to change the situation, that is no control over everything that is happening then we revert to the worse of ourselves. Lacking compassion, mercy and kindness. All we see is our circumstance and every time something comes along to remind us of that feeling of hopelessness and unchanging way of what life has become the only response/outlet we are left with that we can control is our emotions. The mentality and attitude of I don’t care is born, festered and nourished to the detriment of our soul and character.
