To start with, I’m feeling a bit down today and I realize that asking this question is akin to asking others what your strengths and weaknesses are. Hard to answer if you’re not familiar or intimate with the person asking the question. Still, it’s not a rhetorical question, but rather an epistemic one about why people may delude themselfs in a manner that stifles their progress and eventually leads them to finding themselves in a downwards spiral where almost nothing seems to make sense anymore and all they are left with is a feeling of apathy. The other question that comes to mind is; how does one know for sure that one is not biased? Meaning that you might believe that you really ‘know’ yourself, but then follows the question; how come that you’re not able to progress? Anger seems to be one of the answers, we’ve all read that somewhere, but at the same time this implies a feeling of injustice, which is always external, unless I’m completely wrong about this one. But if anger is an answer, the question remains on how to channel that anger in such a way that it doesn’t consume said person in question nor his or her surrounding. Not willing to make this post absolutely longer then necessary, but I believe that my biggest question involves finding the answer to the question; how does one abstract his or her own ‘skillset’ in such a way that it doesn’t involve or account for the signals and (underlying) motives of the outside world. If this is even possible... Any input is more than appreciated!
