Day 5: Something about the way I think that I like.
I covered a lot of this in the post about my personality.
One thing I do like about how I think is that I am an idealist, a dreamer, a “why not?” type of person. I ask “Why can’t we?” rather than accept the status quo or conventional way of doing things.
I find it hard to accept that we, society, are not capable of change and being better than we are now. Where the OH sees the limitations of humanity, (his go to motto is “People are cunts”!), I see the potential and infinite capacity for good in us all.
This perhaps naivety costs me at times as I assume the best about people, cut them slack, give them second, third and forth chances only to be let down and hurt. Perhaps those people simply haven’t reached their level of development that allows them to progress? I don’t know… but I won’t change how I think because of them.
I will continue to be a dreamer, an idealist, believing in all things good. I find it’s a happier way to be, for me anyway.
