Everything good is costly, and the development of the personality is one of the most costly of all things. It will cost you your innocence, your illusions, your certainty.
– Carl Jung
I find that all the good that you can accumulate in the world is quite costly. And just like the quote above suggests, it solely identifies with your own personality, which many people fail to realize is the importance of all that is good. The sad reality is that the complete opposite of the terminology of good…that is the ‘bad’, acts as a great denominator as to how good things will get. But yet, when we suffer from the bad, we find it rather hard to accustom to what may be considered ‘good’. We instead, gravitate to what can be better, and what can be perceived from our form of ‘good’; rather than realizing that sometimes the ‘bad’ outweighs the ‘good’ in ways we cannot explain. Sometimes, the bad may be the only reason why we even get close to something good in the first place.
Maybe, too much good is what leads us to be bad.
Maybe that bad, is what actual led us to be good.
