Cause & Effect

Last time I described how I was trying to change the way I perceived stress and it’s effect on me, how I was trying to separate the two.

In effect, I described the separation of cause and effect.

Well, having a couple of margs on a Saturday afternoon, I waxed a little philosophical about the idea…

Logically, the thought came to mind that eliminating the cause would eliminate the effect and that makes total sense.

But, being sensible just didn’t seem much fun,  especially when tequila was involved.

Being contrary to rationality most days, I asked myself “If you eliminate the effect is the cause still there?”

Maybe a better question would be whether or not the cause still matters.

  • This makes me think of something someone told me about driving. There is no shortage of idiots out there on the road, and they surely piss me off at times. But does it do me ANY good at all to be mad? Is there any gain for me in getting angry at them? Nope.

    So I try to remember that and just let it go. Easier said than done, but hey.
