Over the last couple of years I have learned that (for me) purpose and motivation come from fulfilling needs and feeling good about myself.
I generally like to help others, be useful to this world and learn and grow.
Unlearning is the new learning.
Stay with me on this.
I am not saying that learning something new is wrong, it´ s actually the opposite. I live with a growth mindset so learning new things and growing is part of me.
If we look back in history we will find that it can get quite uncomfortable, painful and worrying.
Our human history is filled with anger, hate, de-idealizing disagreements, broken hearts, ethical dilemmas and so much more.
Oftentimes the things we hate most in others are the things that we hate in ourselves.
When we feel this hate or resentment towards another person we tend to think about it a lot and are unable to let go of it, up to a point that we start acting like this person.
