When you are browsing the internet looking for information, you might take a few minutes to browse the web. You might even take a few minutes to browse the internet and then stop yourself. You might even take your phone out and look at the clock, or start the car and then stop it right away. But that very same minute in which you decided to do those two things, you would have forgotten about the whole thing.
That’s called apathy—the absence of action. The moment you decide that you want to get something done, you’ve done it. The moment you decide to visit a website, you’ve visited that website. It’s that moment that you decide what that website will be. That moment that you decide what your life will be like now that you’ve decided what that website will be is called apathy.
This is the part where I probably should have stopped. Apathy is when you don’t take action because you don’t want to have to do something, or because you don’t want to be the person who did do something. Your apathy is in the middle of that. It really is a state of mind.
So what do you do when you cant think of anything else to do and you just sit there? This is when people most often complain about apathy. They say, “I have apathy.” And this is a statement of apathy because I am not in the habit of complaining or doing something because I want to. I am not doing something because I dont want to. I am doing something because I need to.
When we say apathy, we mean that we are unmotivated by any sort of reward or incentive. We cannot do something because we don’t want to. We can work extremely hard on a project and accomplish a great job. We cannot accomplish something because we are bored with it or we need time away from it. We can do something because we’re lazy. We can do something because we want to. This is apathy in action.
We all have our own reasons for why we are apathetic about things. Some of these are simply because we simply do not have the time, energy, or motivation to do something. It is also true that some of us have a legitimate need to get things done and we simply cannot accomplish it, despite our best efforts.
Apathy has to do with a lack of self-awareness and a lack of motivation to improve ourselves. You see, many of us are not lazy. In fact, we are lazy to a certain extent but we do not know what we should be doing. We are lazy because we do not know what we should be doing, or we simply do not know how to do it. Most of us are not apathetic because we are not lazy. We are apathetic because we are lazy.
We’re apathetic because we aren’t willing to do what we should be doing. While apathy is not actually a sin in any way, it’s important to realize that many people do not realize how very little they do. We typically talk over and over about how much we do but rarely do we actually do it.
The problem is that many people do not realize how little they actually do, which is why apathy is so often a problem. They do not realize that they are often the cause of their own problem. If they could simply do what they should be doing, they would do it, and that would be much better than being lazy about it. But many do not realize that they are being lazy, which leads them to do what they should not be doing.
The problem is that apathy is often caused by not realizing that we are lazy. People do not realize that they are being lazy. They do not realize that they need to do something, that they need to do it today. They do not realize that they are not lazy, and that they do not need to be lazy. In short, when a person goes through a day, they are doing something.
