You Can’t Fix Stupid

Guest Post by Dick Warn

I believe most people are honestly caring, sharing, and trying to be helpful. When they see someone doing something wrong they want to step in and help them. Yet, most of the time they are met with resistance.

Back when I honestly tried to help almost everyone, I fought many battles. People with eyes refused to see. People with ears refused to hear. And, most of them knew that they were doing something wrong, yet they refused to even try to climb out of the box they were in. Their ego’s need to be right held them back.

In this life where the most effective human beings are reachable, teachable students, refusing to learn is truly stupid.  For several years I felt that other people’s refusal to learn was somehow my fault. If only I could help them see more and hear more. And, every time I was forced to walk away from a painful battle I blamed myself.

It took several years for me to clearly see that everyone has the free choice to make up their own mind and that some people decide to create careers out of their misery. Rather than walk through any pain that they’re feeling they carry that pain like a badge of honor. It is something anyone can do and we can’t stop them.

No matter how much you may care about someone and their problems, you can’t fix stupid.
