Usually, I always choose the former. But when it comes to Lebanon’s political situation, I’m not sure if it’s in my best interest to always be aware. I liken it to going to the doctor everyday, thinking “today is the day I’ll be diagnosed with cancer” – if that makes any sense. Morbid thought…I know.
But really.. I don’t know whether I should be reading every article about Lebanon that I come across, or remain ignorant until something actually happens – and deal with it then. For the first time since I’ve lived here, I understand the ignorance/indifference I once mistook for recklessness/insensitivity/cold-heartedness.
And..for the first time in my life, I think I’m going to choose to be ignorant. There really is no other way to live here than to be ignorant (about certain things). Or is there?
