I’ve become convinced that those who struggle with a deep sense of pain for the world can’t truly be well-rounded individuals.
Because they don’t close our eyes to the screwed up world they see around them everyday.
They see news about the situation in Haiti and they don’t change the channel.
They hear that human slavery is at an all-time high and they don’t pretend that it isn’t true.
They see children in deep poverty, dying, everyday and they don’t close their eyes.
All this is too much for them to take.
And it screws them up, for the better.
Well-rounded individuals are over rated.
They are well rounded because they have found a way to ignore all the pain, injustice and crap that they see everyday.
I don’t want to be well-rounded.
