Have you ever noticed how people tend to rationalize everything? I‘ve been known to do that.
My son, who has always been, from a very young age, very astute about human nature said to me one day when he was about nine or ten “Mom, why do you do that?”
“Do what?” I said.
“Try to figure out the reason for everything?”
“What did just I do?” I asked, not knowing what I had said or done to bring up these questions.
“You just said you are cold.”
“So, what’s wrong with that?” I asked my son, shivering and rubbing my hands together to warm up.
“Then you went on to say all the reasons why you might be cold. Did you ever think that you might just BE?”
“No,” I replied, “I’ll have to think about that!”
