This has been proven true, that accepting things makes one a much more tolerable being.
But hear me, hear me, that sometimes it is a misunderstood ignorance.
A lot of people told me that I’m very chilled in the judgment department. That they can tell me whatever and I don’t hold a court against them. If anything, I am ‘okay’ with mostly anything.
To those of you who say so, thank you.
But I’m still going to analyze this.
Ignorance is not caring, not making an importance of something, and just simply, not giving much thought upon a particular subject. And I ignore a lot of things.
If someone tells me, “I have been trying so hard to quit drugs but I simply can’t.” I probably will say something along the line of, “Well, it is very difficult to quit. Struggles are normal.”
My mind, on the other hand, says, “I don’t care.”
But to some people, that’s a proof that I accept them and their condition. And I don’t think there’s a way to tell the difference between acceptance and ignorance.
Unless, if I say it upfront, “Dude, I don’t care about that.”
But that also can be taken as me not looking at his flaws to judge him. Thus, acceptance.
So in a way, acceptance and ignorance should walk hand in hand. I mean, acceptance is understanding that things are out of our control and that they simply happen. Acceptance is moving forward without letting little bumps hold you back.
Ignorance is moving forward without letting little bumps get in your way at all.
So don’t you think that in a way, ignorance is understanding that things happen and that one should just let them. Instead of going after them or letting them hurt him. It is a selfish form of acceptance.
So here is the thin line between acceptance and ignorance. That when in accepting, one shows love. In ignoring, one shows love towards himself.
So isn’t it great though? Since it is hard to tell the difference between acceptance and ignorance, that a lot of ignorant people are seen as tolerant and nonjudgmental? That by loving yourself and blocking other unimportant matters in life, you are seen as a kind heart?
It’s just a thought, just a thought. But it opens the doors to our understanding of people. That we really cannot judge a book by its cover.
