Wants. This doesn’t make any fucking sense. More theories to come.

I don’t think that trying to do the right thing, whatever that means, ever works.

I don’t see how trying to live by an infinitely benevolent being’s standards can ever bring us any happiness since that would be impossible.

Therefore, I think that we naturally do default to what we want, even if we don’t realize it. Do drugs: you want to. Want to get help: you want to. Want to go to church: you want to (this feels like a SOAD song). Want to murder someone: you want to. So then the question becomes: what controls our wants? We can try to control our wants, but they have a way of controlling us and surfacing out sometimes and I’ve found that I’m the happiest when I get what I want, but the first step to that is accepting that you want and not repressing it. Then, they pretty much take over, whatever that means. And then, I guess you just have to hope that you want things that will work out for you? It seems like an awfully random process. We do not get to choose our wants: they are already there and we abide by what they say, so then we just have to hope that we get what we want and that it makes us happy. If we want something and we find out that it doesn’t make us happy, then we change what we want if we want to, but if we don’t want to, we will continue to do the thing that we want to do. Therefore, the only solution seems to be to always do what you want to do because you will anyway and then you will say “I want to keep doing this or I want to change,” but it’s always based on what you want.

I do not think we are anything without our wants, and therefore, I do not think that we should try to act like they shouldn’t exist. We should just accept them because they are going to decide our fates, anyway.
