Dealing with Complex Issues

A big part of practicing self-awareness is being able to examine the complexities in the world through thinking critically and considering issues from more than one perspective. It's easy to look at everything from one point of view, you just make a quick decision based on what you've always thought, but I prefer living in a world where things don't always have an immediate answer.

A lot of people are afraid of dealing with complex issues like death or self-awareness, but it's in those types of difficult topics that we discover the meaning of life. It's simpler to subsist avoiding the deeper issues in life but we stay stuck at that level, which doesn't lead to great meaning or fulfillment. I've found it far more productive to welcome ambiguity and discomfort and use them to learn and grow.
