One of the many reasons we need to stop and think before we act is because the vast majority of our actions are not conscious. It seems like every decision we make, every action we take, every thought we think, and every moment we take in our lives is automatically triggered by something or someone else.
The difference between conscious and unconscious actions is that unconscious actions don’t cause the automatic reaction of doing them. The key to understanding this distinction is that our brains are so complex that they are often able to separate our thoughts from the actions we take. When we’re conscious, our brains are so complex that they can’t do this, so to speak, but this does not always mean that our actions automatically follow our thoughts.
We’ve all been the target of a nasty joke, or a creepy stranger who wants our information, or an angry ex who wants to do us harm. In this case the reason why you did something is probably more relevant than the reasons why they are doing something. For example, if you accidentally hit your mom with your car and she dies, then you should probably apologize for the accident and promise never to do it again.
You can’t make a joke about something. We have to keep thinking about it and making the jokes, but it’s important to remember that if we make the jokes, it’ll be the same way as if they were the same thing, and that means we’ll always think about it.
The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
There’s an old adage that goes something along these lines: “It takes a long time to learn what you don’t know, but it also takes a long time to know what you dont know.” I say this because we’re all going to die one day, but I don’t think we should make it an excuse to not think about what we don’t know. We’re also all going to have to figure out how to live afterwards, and maybe we should get our priorities straight first.
If you have nothing to be concerned about, how about making sure your finances are in order. I’m sure you’re thinking, “but I have no money to spend on clothes.” My answer is that you should probably get rid of some things, because you have no money to spend. I also think you should get rid of some things, because you have no money to spend on clothing. (I know I said this last, but it’s the truth.
If you have nothing to worry about, you’re probably thinking, “Well if I had a lot of money, I could get out of debt.” But if your priorities are skewed toward spending, then don’t worry, that’s not your problem.
In the past couple of years, I have fallen into the trap of buying a lot of clothes and other possessions just because there were too many items in my house. I ended up having to sell a lot of my clothes to make enough money to pay off the debts and buy necessities. I still have a lot of clothes, but I no longer feel comfortable with the things I own. I feel like I have to justify having all this stuff.
We’re all used to being out of our minds and in a state of denial. Just because we don’t have a lot of money isn’t the reason why we need to buy more things.
