Sad Way of Seeing
Topic: Making Decisions

A victim attending SNAP this year said to me:  "I already know everything I need to know.  I don't want to know more."  It was a strong reminder that this attitude isn't just in professionals who are unable to learn from people with more experience in looking at the complex issues.

It's also there with a lot of victims.  One of the ditches.   It's vital that we all continue looking outside the box at EVERY issue in our lives.  To see the shadow and the spots where we need to make improvement.  When we believe we have "all that we need to know" about anything and aren't looking toward sources that challenge us, then we arrive where there truly is no hope.

Learning and growing is a life-long commitment.  One we must renew each day, whatever we are doing.  The absence of this desire is to join the stagnation of the average person.
