A Particularly Truthful Paragraph

> “Of course obstacles exist. But part of life’s purpose is removing obstacles, or at least minimizing their impact. The worst obstacles are not found in nature, but in the irrational or erroneous things human beings do to each other—and to themselves. (For evidence, read world history and examine today’s headlines.) This is one reason why we need a field of psychology, and (more fundamentally) philosophy, and is why human beings eschew these fields at their peril.” http://drhurd.com/index.php/Daily-Dose-of-Reason/Psychology-Self-Improvement/Got-Serenity.html

This one really hits home for me. I’ve been interested in psychology and philosophy a long time and I think I really didn’t notice why until I read this.
