Ignorance Is Bliss

“Ignorance is bliss,” or so they tell us. But that is not true. Ignorance is vulnerability. Ignorance is deprivation, despair and depression. It is the inability to recognize precisely what you need, even when it is staring you in the face. Ignorance allows you to be robbed of something precious without realizing. Ignorance is judging something before you understand it.

Sometimes wanting to start again with a clear slate isn’t enough. Sticking with how things used to be, you may miss out on a wonderful opportunity. Perhaps sometimes you think that you’re not hanging on. It’s the past that won’t let go of you, or maybe you won’t let go of the past. But for as long as you aren’t sure how far into the future you want to tread, irrelevant issues can continue to distract you from important things by disguising themselves as vital factors… Just a thought.

  1. Ignorance is a parasite that feeds off of our naive natures, only to spit out the opportunities that have passed us by. Life, love, happiness, joy, fear, content…

    All of these are thrown away because of our ignorant nature. They say we learn from our experiences, that hindsight is 20/20…

    But how many of those experiences are ever the same? So do we ever truly learn to dispel our ignorant behavior?
