Wisdom to the Unwilling

It can be very exhausting giving wisdom to those not willing to learn from you. It’s like talking to a brick wall. Pointless.

I do not assume, nor claim to be very wise. Frankly, most of the time, I can be plain and stupid with my decision-making and thought processes. However, I believe that a good and proper discussion can lead to good results. If my knowledge, logic and reasoning stands true after much scrutiny, then it could be correct. If it collapses, then it may be false.

Foresight, I believe, is important in making decisions. You have to consider the possible outcome a decision has before you implement it. Why? Because the effect of such a decision could have unforeseen repercussions that you have not considered. Undoing a decision could be costly. If you view your own opinion as the end-all-be-all, and inputs from others is useless, then the discussion is pointless. Do what you want, and learn from your experiences later in the future.

It would be nice if the only one to suffer from your misstep in decision would be you alone… Unfortunately, that is not the case. We have a sphere of influence, as with the people who depend on us.

Whatever. I give up.

I did what I could to convince said person otherwise. This may either be a step back into the darkness that we crawled out of a few years ago, or it might be a different path. Who knows? Foresight may be important, but it’s not like I can read into the future. There are far too many variables, and my mathematics ain’t that good.

“Not my problem,” is what I would want to say… unfortunately, it still is my problem. Ah… wonderful…
