Pointless …. How many things do we do in life that turn out to be totally pointless? My guess is there are so many you cannot count them and I will show you just some of them , lol and you will see that we worry too much about too many things , but even knowing this we still do it . Makes you wonder if we will ever learn ?? Lol….somehow I doubt it we are creatures of habit and we seem unable to change those habits we have learned over years and years of doing the same things , they worked once so why wouldn’t they work again ? So we use them over and over and so on and so on , never thinking it might be a good idea to change what we are doing to make it easier on ourselves. I guess thinking is just too hard for too many of us ..lol.
So the first pointless thing ? We say to ourselves we will keep things that really should be thrown out or re-cycled or given away , so we keep them and keep them , then all of a sudden we find we really have to get rid of them and now we are faced with a load of work that could have been avoided if we had but used our noggins. So keeping all this stuff for so long was pointless for 2 reasons ..1 it made a ton of extra work we did not need and ..2 if after all this time we have not needed it the why did we keep it ? The number one reason we keep things is ” incase we need it later ” lol and you can bet your life that almost 100% of the time we never do need them but we never learn. Learning just like thinking is way too much work and we are too slow to realise we are just making more work by not doing it the first time .
So what else is pointless ? Keeping on caring about people and things you think might help you at some point unlike things people are harder to move away from than a pile of stuff, we hang on and hang on until we finally see keeping up with them is pointless and may indeed be harmful to us . I am sure we all have come across people that we would have been better off not getting involved with but we do not see that for some time . Thankfully we had 1 like that and finally saw it and drew away from her and since then have been very careful in who we let get close , no more toxic people for us if we can help it we are way more vigilant now and are much happier .
Another pointless thing we do and this makes me giggle is we spend far too much time searching on the internet for things that are sometimes right in front of us , we rely on it rather than on what we could find out by just going out and asking a few questions …lol yes I know men hate asking questions or for directions but trust me sometimes it works well and saves a lot of time .Even when we get the answer we want on the internet some people still go on and on and on and keep looking when we have already got the answer. I know it is good to get conformation but to just keep on and on on 1 subject is so silly , so there is a perfect example of doing something pointless we have the answer in the first couple of times we searched but we don’t accept that . I think if that is the case going out and asking a question of the right people would have been the best idea.
There are also things that seem pointless as you never ever get them finished ..what do I mean ? I mean things like housework, weeding, shopping, working , and all the other fun things you have to just keep doing and doing and doing because no matter how many dishes you wash or how much cleaning you do or how many times you do the washing …there is always more!! Arrrggh these things are never finished but to live as a civilised person you have to keep doing them , there are times when I would just love to say sod it I am not doing anymore , but as I love my hubby lol ( it’s all his fault ) I keep on doing them . To be fair though I do feel better when house is clean and clothes are fresh so I suppose I can’t blame him entirely …..lol sod it …
One of the most pointless things we do and a lot do it , is to follow blindly people and things that tell you it/they can make you a lot of money , people will do extraordinary things just chasing money , until we realise how pointless it is we do ourselves no good at all , money is not the answer to everything , yes it is nice to have enough , but do we really need anymore? If we have enough for our needs why chase after more and more ? It is not only time consuming and it wears you out and frustrates you , it is ultimately nothing more than another pointless thing we do , we should just enjoy what we have and not go overboard on pointless things . ..
If I want your opinion, I’ll ask you to complete the necessary forms….
You know what’s funny? Obviously neither do I or I wouldn’t be asking.
