You read the meme that it is not what happens to you that matters, it is how you react to it. You nod, you don't learn. You have no idea what it means. You are clueless.
This is one of the memes that never gives you pause, because it is a meme that is also a principle. It is true everywhere, and it is one of the most important things to wake up to... that is, if you want the good life. If you want success. If you want love. If you want to be happy.
But in spite of all your babbling about all that, when someone gives you the tool, you'd rather hide it, rather ignore it, because... gasp... you don't want to be responsible for your results.
One could say: stupid as the stupid does, and one would be right.
