Becoming insensitive to nonsense is a goal that should be relentlessly pursued. Your ability to think rationally in difficult situations will prove enormously beneficial over time.
The good news is that this capacity can be substantially enhanced through practice, although that takes a lot of work.
- Do you feel compelled to react emphatically when people say something stupid?
- Do you ever feel depressed due to the popularity of massively wrong ideas?
- Do you get angry when you see people spreading obvious lies all over the place?
You will probably never become fully comfortable around nonsense and difficulties, but if you manage to decrease your sensitivity, you will have taken an essential step towards inner peace and permanent happiness.
