We are different people, with different dreams, different desires, different … everything. There is no one shoe size that fits everyone. In understanding we are not the same, we make space for others to exude their “madness”. (“Madness” because what they choose to do does not make sense, but it is valid to them and their experience.)
Because we are different people, it is expected that different things would appeal to our logic.
There are several things I consider really dumb such as getting emotionally worked up over the outcome of 22 grown-ass men chasing after an inanimate object in a wide expanse of field. (Except you placed a bet on the football match and you’re scared of losing your money.) That this does not make sense to me does not invalidate everything about football and the sentiments attached to it.
Same way me choosing a weekend to binge-watch cartoons would not make sense to so many people.
To a large extent, Society determines what makes sense. Behaviour that does conform with consensus is considered crazy.
Occasionally, I catch myself wondering: “What does that make me if other people in a messed-up society validate my choices and consider me a conforming member of that society? Does that not make me messy in a way?”
As Rita Mae Brown put it, “The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you but yourself.” It is okay for people to invalidate your sensible life choices.
The point is this: indulge in the things that make you feel good about yourself if you are not harming anyone. It does not have to make sense to people. You are doing it for you. Your choices should make sense to you and you alone.
