Ignorance really is bliss.
In my early teens, I thought that having as much information as possible was the best thing ever. Deep down, I still do. You need it to make educated decisions. Knowing things enables you to change things, or work towards something new.
In the past, I used to look at people who would rather not know, and I would shake my head. Why did they want to remain in the dark? It seemed like something an intelligent person would not choose willingly. Admittedly, I pitied them.
Even though I love information and analyzing it using a million different combinations, I no longer think people who choose not to know are less intelligent. In fact, they might be smarter than all of us, who are hungry for information. Because knowing can bring a lot of pain and suffering.
Today, I walked out of work and realized how happy I felt in that moment. I have been overall happy for a while, but this was different. Maybe in the past I was just content? It led me to think that we cannot crave something we do not know. I thought I was “happy” in the past. I did not think that I needed to be “more happy”. And yet, here I am. Happy. This time around, hoping that I might become even happier in the future.
That is yet another proof that we do not always know what our goals are. Sometimes we do not know our destination, until we arrive and decide to stay there.
Do not settle. Strive for more.
