Thinking too much is a double-edged sword. Wait, aren’t all swords double-edged? I’m no expert, but … never mind. You see, thinking too much.
Understanding the world is vital, but thinking too much about its unfairness and myriad of hardships — not a great time. And yet, if you think awareness is the point of being conscious, that’s just par for the course. A double-edged sword — though qualities do seem to have more depth the thoughtful way. Maybe that’s a silver lining.
