I struggle to forgive stupidity, this shouldn’t be the case, one should be more accepting however it’s just far too draining.
The same is true for ignorance, wilful blindness and a whole host of other things.
Now please understand this, the same level of contempt would be expected to come my way for people who felt this and more of me. It wouldn’t upset or sadden me because it would be their prerogative to find a lesser person irritating and barely tolerable at best.
A lesser life, yes there is such a thing, how people categorise it may differ yet there is always someone you feel superior to, don’t try to deny it because that would be criminal and rather ignorant.
