As we get older, we are more likely to say “I just can’t be bothered.”
And this comes after youth which is the long process of learning that we should bother!
Why don’t we bother as much anymore? Yes, there is less energy, more distractions, and astounding levels of foolishness in the world. All this makes it easy for “I just can’t be bothered” to become an insidious, dangerous habit.
What makes life worth living is that we bother!
