Psychopathy is among the most difficult disorders to spot. The psychopath can appear normal, even charming, but underneath, there's lack of conscience and empathy, making them manipulative and volatile. Could we relate to this definition when it comes to listening to our own inner voice?
To be smart, happily smart, we must be able to auto-analyze our thoughts and choices. How many of us choose to be impetuous instead of smartly thinking about the consequences of our attitudes?
I believe that because we tend to be lazy, we tend to sometimes not really think things through, in depth. We're always thinking superficially and repeating the same thoughts over and over and most of the time it's so tiring that when the time comes and we really need to make a decent choice, we let it be and hope for the best. That's why get caught up in so many Life's surprises, like divorce, like unemployment, like lack of security... we weren't paying attention.
But people around us are, especially children, do. We communicate a lot more than we think through our body language. Some people believe they need to shout in order to be heard, but think of the person that speaks softly and from a place of peace, which one do you think we'll listen more attentively? Same thing when it comes to thinking about Love. If you're too big in yourself, how will someone fit you inside their heart? To fit, to be admired, to be Loved, we must first be a seed, a tiny seed that will eventually grow inside our partner, our parents, our friends.
And don't be afraid to fail. We all fail and most of the time it's how we really learn. Don't beat yourself up because you should have known better. Sometimes we don't know any better.
