Ignorance may not always be bliss!

“Ignorance isn’t always good; you’ll end up disappointed if not taken care of on time.” My friend suggested.

I was ignoring a few important facts that my friend was trying to suggest.

But when he put this point in the conversation and told me the implications of ignorance during discussions, I realized I was doing wrong all those times.

I ignored many things under the impression that it didn’t make sense or it won’t change anything.

We all have some image of ourselves in front of the world. We think we have good or bad qualities or, say, nature. But we often end up ignoring people who try to tell us something different from our perception.

This perception may not necessarily be about us, but it could be about anything else we believe in.

Most of the time, we believe what we think is true. But this world is big, and there are chances that we might be wrong. We might be believing wrong for all these times. It might also be true that changing this belief could lead us to a better path.

It could be possible only if we accept that we may not always be accurate. It could be possible when we understand that what we are conditioned to might not be a great thing to keep with us in life.

When we persistently ignore facts and deny change, we create one wall around us, ultimately making us go nowhere.

I have seen many bosses ignore basic facts of work culture and make people under them work. In such scenarios, they end up making bad decisions since such decisions may not prove sustainable due to the basic ignorance of bosses. We often ignore a few true things in our interpersonal relations and disturb relationships.

“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change. I seek the truth, which never harmed anyone. The harm is to persist in one’s own self-deception and ignorance.”

Marcus Aurelius

This quote made me realize the need to understand and make ourselves open to listening thoroughly to the truth in the world. When someone makes you learn something with true facts that might break your perceptions, realize it. Understand it. It will undoubtedly lead to better results for you.

Therefore, folks out there understand the need not to be ignorant about the wrong beliefs you hold, not be ignorant about love around us, and not be ignorant about essential things in society around us.

Let’s believe that there is no harm in believing something true and different from our beliefs. Once we understand this, we can dream about a rational society.

Together, we can build a rational society.
