Indiference

“Neither love nor terror makes one blind: indifference makes one blind.” – James Baldwin

I believe that this world is only as big as we want it to be. We don’t see the world as it is, but as we are.

And I also believe that a lot of people choose not to see as much as they could. I strenuously believe people kind of like being blind to the outside world, to what doesn’t cater to their needs and desires.

What I’m really trying to say is that we’re spending most of our time being self-centered.

We are not the center of the Universe. None of us is.

The Universe, yes, it’s a huge and dark place. It’s indifferent to our needs, wants, dreams, expectations. That’s why we need to take care of each other, to help each other become the very best possible versions of ourselves.

And it’s not about what we might get by being like this, but about who we become in being like this.

  1. I agree with the self centered part but I think most of the people, if not all are like this. It takes a lot of work to change your perspective on the world. Probably not impossible but definitely not easy.
    “We don’t see the world as it is, but as we are.” I’m not sure about this. I don’t think I’m the way I see the world but, a crazy man doesn’t see himself as crazy so who knows…maybe in the end you are right.
