There is so much bullshit in the leading trends of our popular culture. Our daily habits tend to be relevant to some opinions, we vicariously like to explore. Then we frequently observe the habit-to-opinion ratio, and as soon as that ratio slightly tops the bullshit bar, we characterize our habits as opinion, facts, or principles.
The fact of the matter is that certain attributes of bullshit might imply essential validity to the preliminary and independent account of human behavior. As such, I will expand on some various forms of deviating the attention to the matters that reside beneath certain trends.
I disclaim to know much, or have any leniency towards any trend, or not. But we should really see that people, at times not always, make thoughtless choices just to influence or shape perception of self. In that realm, you find republican meaning “high-status”, atheist meaning “smart”, and corporate-shoe-lover-princes meaning “sex and the city McFabulous”. The underlying fact with all these people is that they have too much time thinking about themselves. They think about their status, outfits, thighs, and career. And if they already have a good career, they think about how to be a spiritual Yoga teacher who eats, loves, and prays. A decent and selfless person doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about oneself, because they got shit to do. This is why you see a lot of celebrity women getting husbands after they adopt. The kids put everyone on notice shouting: Yo Bitch, Hello! It’s not all about you anymore.
Or, in relationship realm, for instance, it usually goes something like this: you meet a person called Morgan. Morgan is not really available for a relationship on some condition that absolutely precludes availability. Morgan gets around town on a skateboard wearing a shawl on a sunny day with 85 degree temperature. Or maybe Morgan just comes right out and says something obscure and open to interpretation like, “You can’t push emotions to love someone. It needs to happen all by itself”. Now, you might bullshit your way to trying to significant-other Morgan. You hang out with Morgan and have fun attaching yourself by high amount of oxytocin that kicks in. But beneath, you know you want more but you don’t tell Morgan. That’s your dirty secret, well, just between you and 100 of your close friends. You keep waiting and hoping that Morgan will figure this out. Guess what? Morgan will never figure it out because Morgan is already very comfortable living life without and away from you. You should have stopped bullshiting yourself in the first place giving up the notion that you could change anything.
Our social values have diluted. Men want to have it all going with the tempo of god, looking athletic in a 3 ft deep swimming pool, or being fascinating on Facebook wall posts. Women see no value in being a decent mother as the foundation of life. And these two essentially unattractive and confused group of creatures are supposed to attract each other –which is why everyone needs a shrink.
As human beings, we exist only in response to other things and what’s formed in our unconscious, and we cannot know ourselves at all without knowing other things. Also, there is nothing proven with experience, to support the theory that it is easy to know self. Our natures are, indeed, notoriously less stable and less inherent than the natures of other things. And in such messy and convoluted situation, honesty itself is bullshit.
