Part of why I want to study Psychology is because I want to identify these differences between people and resolve the conflicts, they have between each other, so that we can feel even more connected with each other despite our differences

I feel that many a times we get into arguments and conflicts due to miscommunications or simply just a clash of views. The difference in opinions can be as simple as deciding on what or where to have lunch, but sometimes it can escalate into an argument. Sometimes we realize the difference in opinions, sometimes we don’t, but regardless of that, many times we still argue because we feel unheard by the other party.

You may start with all the gusto, then midway you are left wondering where it all went

Having identified and accepted the problem, I think the next step is dissecting the problem. This should be a slow process that would probably require an aged therapist with glasses and a room with a wall full of books. I don’t have much on my plate right now. I can role play the aged therapist in glasses twice a week. I have all the time to work on myself, to start something and see the end of it or see it through. I will first commit to the healing process. I will start with a small task like working on my weight. Later I will graduate to making sure I utilize this space. I think by the time I am turning 30 which is in a few weeks time, I will have started checking up on people randomly.

We all Scream for Ice Cream

As I indicated on Friday, I intend to write several posts over the coming weeks about the direction I am hoping to continue going to move Wants Blog forward.

In case you have never read the homepage, I strongly encourage you to take a look (it’s at most a 1-pager). I wrote this when I started the blog, and I feel it rings as true today as when I first rolled up my sleeves to write it.

The connection to last Friday’s post is this: wants may be easy enough to pronounce — they seem to roll off the tongue as easily and smoothly as swallowing sweet melted butter — but they are usually quite complex in practice. The phrase “it’s complicated” ought to spring to mind … even though not much schooling is needed for even the smallest of children to express what’s wanted (at times even with a “dead or alive” sense of urgency).

Yet as I tried to point out on Friday, we need not pretend (as Bob Dylan did in his “Talkin’ World War III Blues”) that we are all separated — we aren’t (as I indeed attempted to hammer home on the, er, homepage).

So I hope to first of all raise everyone’s sensitivity to a level at which we all realize the need to replace any simplistic views of individual, egotistical wants with a much more sophisticated model of a more socialized sense of collaborative wants — not merely because I personally feel that communal goal setting is the right thing to do, but rather because any matter-of-fact, evidence-based belly-button gazing exercise — whether super-simple or extremely complex — will easily show that there is no other world for us to live in than this “one world” we have to share with each other. We need to accept that one world is enough for all of us — because regardless of the stellar marketing pitches of the most advanced Silicon Valley celebrities another world is not (and probably never ever will be) “coming soon”.
