Public education

There’s a lot they don’t teach you in school, a lot of things that you learn gradually. Perhaps taking philosophy, one can grasp core concepts on how to approach life and situations. However, no one tells you how good or bad life gets. They teach you about discrimination but they don’t tell you how it feels, they will talk about literature that deals with heartbreaks but they don’t tell you what emotional state one has to be in order to write words that are transparent to their broken souls.They’ll teach you about dopamine and serotonin but don’t tell you how it feels to lack it or an abundance of it.

They tell you drugs will kill you but they don’t tell you why people resort to substance abuse. They tell you to obey authority yet they forget that authority can be wrong. They tell you that to eat healthy yet they serve you processed food? School creates educated people but not wise people. Wisdom comes with trial and error and education comes from studying books. You can’t study how to be a better person that is something that is learned.
