Dr. Wu -- Manipulation is an interesting term. I was reflecting on the way we all manipulate one another to act a certain way. This is "learnt behavior" that is my term and I use it often. I know learnt is an improper spelling.
Fact is, we learn through lessons in life what is right and what is wrong. All through-out life. Life is hard. It knocks us down. But the behaviors you learned as a child are the hardest to break. I shout when I am excited or angry. Loudly. You know something. Then you don't. It get's lost in translation because we believe motives are behind them. People doubt each other. Do not trust one another. But you want back what you knew. Instead of leaping forward into the unknown, we draw back. It is a mad mad world.
How do you logically make sense of any of it?
