Supposedly we were born with a free will. That would mean that I have a choice always. If some nutjob behaves like a fool … says mean and ignorant things … I would have a choice: To get really mad or to disregard it in its entirety. It doesn’t feel very good to be angry, so why don’t we all choose to feel good?! In an ideal world we’d all walk around don’t giving a damn about all the stupidity we all see around us, huh … just shrugging?!
Wouldn’t that be great, if we were in charge of our of feelings?! Slightest little hint of “bad mood”, we just choose to change that feeling around to “cheerful”!
I don’t see this happening any time soon, and I honestly have a hard time with the concept of choosing how to feel. It’s one thing to say it and another one to feel it. I wonder what a psychiatrist would say about the issue … or one of all those motivational speakers. They seem to have answers to most things all the time.
Sometimes I read stuff online … blogs, forums, Facebook … people that I hardly know or don’t know at all … and allow myself to get really irked. They’re not even worthy of my attention because they’re already so full of themselves.
So I thought … ‘What if I write this post, maybe I can rid myself of all those feelings?!‘. It’s difficult to write it without going too deep into the subject … without touching upon religion or whether human beings were born with a sense of «right and wrong» … «good or evil», but I won’t go there.
