Do you know what drives me mad?
It’s how so many people— myself included — can be so aware of the way things are, but when it boils down to it, we blanket sweep these issues under the rug– falling into the same bullshit repeatedly.
These issues can really be anything.
Let’s take a look at small talk.
But wait, let me get my Seinfeld on first: "What's the deal with small-talk? We all hate small talk. We all know how shallow small talk is So why do we partake in small talk?!"
We all hate it.
We all think it’s bullshit and shallow in some sense.
But we all partake in it when the situation calls for it.
Even the people who despise small talk the most are usually guilty of partaking in its bullshit-ity to some degree.
Why do we filter?
Why do we cave?
Why do we do the things we do, when we know in ourselves at times that we don’t like the things we do.
