There are some struggles that I never seem to overcome. I fall into the trap of trying to puzzle out the reasoning for why someone acts a certain way even though I know 1) It’s none of my business and 2) It’s none of my business. I can only know my own motivations and never really know another’s so too much energy directed to the why instead of dealing with the action that the why has created is a waste and often quite frustrating. I tire of the frustration and yet my analytical mind goes there.
It is not always a bad thing to think on "why", but getting stuck there is. I have been been getting stuck again. I saw a short sentence posted that I hope to perma-implant into my brain to stop myself from getting stuck. The sentence is: Trying to understand the behaviour of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
