I recently came across a study which showed that self-esteem has been shown to increase during young adulthood (20-40) but declines after age 60. The authors say that this is mostly due to older peoples’ decline in health and socioeconomic status.
When you know that the more you know, the less you actually know, you will know something that is truly worth knowing.
Knowing yourself is also highly recommended.
Stop worrying. Stop over-analysing. Stop making up excuses.
The more you learn, the more you realise that the world is not black and white. This contrasts strongly with the world we live in as children, where adults show us how to easily to put things into categories like “good”, “bad”, “right” and “wrong”.
The other day, I made a bet with a classmate. He argued that there were four rows of seats in one of our lecture theatres. I thought that this was preposterous, as all of our lecture theatres had three rows of seats on all sides.
