Hi Guys !
I planned to write today, but it's almost midnight and I have one unfinished sentence.
Today I had my fourth driving lesson and it didn't go as smoothly as the precedent three ones. I basically can't turn, because I start way too late and it goes wrong, but my instructor is very patient so I should be fine. Or at least I hope that.
However he also said to me today : "Aleksandra, you should trust other road-users much more" and my brain was like "Are you kidding me???" - this basically made me highly doubt that I'm ever going to pass my driving test, which caused that I got into a bad mood. To brighten up my day I decided to buy 5SOS' new album SOUNDS GOOD FEELS GOOD! If you know me well enough, I almost never leave the mall with one thing. The other thing I bought was Fall Out Boy's last album (I guess) which is AMERICAN BEAUTY. I listened to it so many times, but let's be honest Novocaine gives me a headache.
This post was going to be about trust, but there's not much I can say about it. However, during my last exam session I was reading my Political Theories and International Institutions book and there was a really nice paragraph about it.
"The fear of becoming dependent actually means that we're scared to trust others. Therefore we start practicing deference reflexes. The shame of being dependent causes that the trust and bond between people is being ruined. To learn how to trust others, we need to stop being scared of getting hurt."
"The feeling of self-worthiness dependents on the question if others can trust us."
"To be trustworthy we need to feel that we're needed."
- P. Ricœr
I think it's funny I found those in a chapter about capitalism and economy!
That's all for today, I'm really tired now, so I hope this post makes sense haha! Next week I'm going to write about me being a Vegetarian for one week :) This week I drank 2.5 liters of water instead of 1.5 and I already noticed some small differences, so I hope I can keep this up. Sunday I'm starting one week without meat! Like I tweeted back this week, I wanted to try Meatless November, but that might be too much and I don't want to feel bad about my possible failure.
