I know, I know! The first impulse is to throw rotten eggs in this title because we both know it’s not true (at least, most of the time). So the question now is: when doing nothing is the hardest thing to do?
I think this is related to having control over the situation because that’s when fear and desperation have a say. When it seems you’re losing control over something, that’s when you start doing (stupid) things just to get that control back. Of course, sometimes it is required to do something just so the sh*t doesn’t hit the fan, but other times things would be better if we do nothing.
In my opinion, doing nothing is the hardest thing to do when the things you want to do are bad. When you know your actions do nothing else but harm you and the ones around you, but you still do that sh*t for some small immediate temporary pleasure, that’s when it’s the hardest. That’s why some people do drugs. The immediate pleasure is stronger than the idea of harming the self and the people around, so not doing drugs is the hardest thing to do for that person.
So basically doing nothing is the hardest thing to do when that nothing involves effort. If you have to put lots of effort to do keep yourself from doing stupid things, that’s when it’s the hardest.
When doing nothing is the hardest thing for you?
