I was looking at the statements.
“When is the correct time to submit and when is the correct time to resist?”
I thought: “Can anyone know the correct time with logic? No because drive requires emotion and an emotional push is needed to make decisions”.
But submission / resistance is more than an emotional decision; there is some rationalizing/reasoning involved as well.
But can you reason at the moment of choice?
You can and do but it’s swimming in the complexity of the moment.
Ok, I thought, if there’s no clear-cut way to know ahead of time, simply by the nature of “situations”, then what’s really happening?
Oh, must be prevention. Preventing regret afterwards for having made an incorrect choice.
After all, why should a choice matter unless one is concerned about correct or incorrect outcome?
From that, I decided to write down just a few sentences on it. But that’s my entire thought process prior to that.
But that said, was I looking at myself? I don’t know. I was reasoning with my brain; it’s all I got. And I can only compare with myself, whether declaring that I am or recognizing it.
Logically, I’d have been reasoning with myself, by myself, for myself – or at least for my impression of what the other person needs, which would be nothing more than whatever template I have for them, which is in me, which is me.
But I didn’t label it as such internally even if it was, but I have no way to know
