Making Hard Decisions

Making Hard Decisions

Sometimes we feel as if we've done the right thing, but still feel like we've made a big mistake. The song "Rhythm Redux" tells the aftermath of a trying actor choosing to go to his friends wedding over a callback for a big film, but no one really noticed him at the wedding, so he feels like he made the wrong choice. And the rest of the song is a battle between his desires and his morality, fighting between doing what's right and what feels good.

Doing What's Right Sometimes Feels Wrong

Doing What's Right Sometimes Feels Wrong

"Thomas: I'm saying if I made the right choice Why don't I feel right?

Patton (Morality): you may not tonight, but in time you... might?

Thomas: I don't know I think this feelings here to stay..."

Ahhh, this is a familiar feeling right? I feel like we all have this at one point or another. Kind of catch-22 situation, there is a big decision to be made, but none of the options are good, I'll be darned if I do, and darned if I don't.

Morals vs. Altruism

Morals vs. Altruism

This is shown more in their full episode "Putting Others First - Selfishness vs. Selflessness Redux", (go watch it it's great!) But their main point was that while it's great to put others first, you shouldn't lose yourself in the act, and you can't help others if you're not even taking care of yourself. But also that the worlds a messy place and you can't be a perfect friend no matter how hard you try, and as long as you try to communicate with the involved parties, you can be a bit selfish.

All Things In Moderation, Even Selfishness

All Things In Moderation, Even Selfishness

I think we've been brainwashed that selfishness is an inherently bad thing, and it's really not, it's just a matter of balance. Obviously too much selfishness is bad, and makes you seem self centered and unsympathetic. But too much selflessness is also bad, making it seem like others control your life, and you're not taking charge. It's your life not anyone else's.

Selfishness Or Self Care?

Selfishness Or Self Care?

Selfishness gets a bad rap, because most people just associate the overabundance of it with the pure concept. It's bad to be a selfish person who always puts their needs above others, but you should put yourself first a considerable amount of the time. it's healthy to give yourself a little treat occasionally, and as long as you aren't brash or haughty about it, it's just a normal part of being human.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
