The unexamined life is not worth living.
I started reading and learning about philosophy and mindfulness about six or seven years ago. It’s changed my life.
It’s allowed me to be more accepting of things in the world. To accept things that happen as is. And to be aware of my thoughts and emotions and how they affect my actions.
It hasn’t helped to be perfect but has helped me to accept imperfection.
I believe it has helped me to become a better person.
So I was surprised to hear my wife say that I’ve changed after I did that philosophy course. She didn’t say it in a good way.
While I am on this journey of self-discovery and was feeling good about myself, it appears that I’ve been alienating my family.
Here I was thinking I was making myself better for the benefit of myself and my family, but the perception is the opposite.
Who’d have thunk?
