Someone said :
and its irresponcible to not dwell on, acknowledge, debate and try to understand and illuminate the mechanisms that support the wrongs of the world. like uninformed or complacement attitudes...
Oh but I do.... a lot of the time. I speak out against them too.
I'm certainly not uninformed or complacent. By a long shot.
But there comes a time in my life when I have to switch off, else I'd have a breakdown. Seriously, I would. Simply because there is so much wrong
in the world.
Switching off from the evils of the world to have time for yourself is, actually, very responsible.
Because if I burn myself out from worrying about it all too much, I'll never ever be able to achieve anything, in my own small way.
Its a bit like looking after your own mental well-being as a means to being able to then look after your friends and loved ones.
You're no good to anyone if you're a sobbing mess, huddled in the corner of a padded cell.
Look at what happened to Nietzsche.
Speaking of doing good... I'm watching 'Secret Millionaire' ... this show always has me in floods at the end when they hand out the cash.
