Why do we do dumb things? On this morning’s InsideOut Forum Discussion call, we became aware that we do so many dumb things, not just a few. We saw that we all do many of the same dumb things. We all want to avoid seeing and feeling the pain of others, because we might be challenged to DO something, whether helping them or leaving them. We find our alternatives daunting or frightening, so we avoid reality. Of course, the consequences are brutal. Take global warming as an example. We want to avoid taking action of a very painful situation, but as one woman pointed out on the call, it sets us up to feel the pain for longer! What are the dumb things YOU do? Can you relate to the examples shared on today’s call? Read our blog and share your thoughts and experiences in a venue that welcomes you to be real!
