542 | Creatures of Habit

I was reading Addictive Habits on Activist’s Journey to Life 

<<...habits are quite similar to addictions: it's something you do over and over. You are often driven by a compulsive need (though with habits it's not experienced with that same intensity). It is something that you have done so often that it is now automatic - you don't even have to think about doing it>>

which reminded me that some days ago I’d wanted to share some thoughts on The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

<<If you find yourself consistently giving too many fucks about trivial shit that bothers you — your ex-girlfriend’s new Facebook picture, how quickly the batteries die in the TV remote, missing out on yet another 2-for-1 sale on hand sanitizer — chances are you don’t have much going on in your life to give a legitimate fuck about. And that’s your real problem. Not the hand sanitizer.
…In life, our fucks must be spent on something. There really is no such thing as not giving a fuck. The question is simply how we each choose to allot our fucks. You only get a limited number of fucks to give over your lifetime, so you must spend them with care.
…Essentially, we become more selective about the fucks we’re willing to give. This is something called ‘maturity.’ It’s nice, you should try it sometime. Maturity is what happens when one learns to only give a fuck about what’s truly fuckworthy.>>

Well, the things we ‘give a fuck about’ are interesting enough to look into. Let’s see –

We start with learning how to give a fuck about what everybody else thinks about us (how to be cheered and not get scolded), we go on with learning how to give a fuck about what we wear, how we look and what impression we make on everybody else (whether we are liked and validated in the fucks we give a fuck about) – and if we’re lucky something ‘happens’ at some point in our lives that makes us wake up and realize that everything we’d given a fuck about was really just bullocks in our head and that there are much more serious and REAL stuff out there –which is bluntly put right HERE– to give a fuck about.
What we CARE about – what we ‘give a fuck’ about – really does say something about who we are. It does in fact say a LOT about who we are.

And since we’re talking in the context of habit and addiction, have you ever looked at your thoughts and reaction patterns, your habitual ‘way of going about things and reacting to things’ and how you repeat the same things over and over, and the way it all seems ‘so normal’, it all seems to be things you just HAVE to think, or say, or do, it just WANTS/NEEDS to come out…? Yep, those are the very habits that inhabit you, you have created them, but to begin with they were the very things you shouldn’t have given one fuck about. But alas upon our entrance into this world the system starts bombarding us with impressions, imprints, woes and ways and coping mechanisms. We watch and copy, there is no other way to make sense of and fit into this ‘adult world’. And we end up addicted to our own thoughts and reaction patterns, our own fears and desires, most of them unreal, irrational, yet we follow them, we validate the fuzzy logic in justification, and rest in self-righteousness. Right? Right. The human nature has been carefully formed and crafted, and today we have the ‘human condition’, the world as we know it.

Human nature, human condition – are they perhaps one and the same? Should we perhaps look more into and see: the conditioned nature of the human for what it is, a product, a construct, the result of systematic equations… 

I’ll leave you with these questions marks at this point, more in this context in the next post.
