Our mind searches for reasons for every decision we make and things that happen to us.
We don’t like to feel irresponsible of consequences of our own decisions. If we made an impulsive decision, we contrive a permissible reason to shield it.
We don’t like to be left confounded. If the actual reason does not make sense, we make up one that makes sense so we can sleep in peace.
Our mind could blind us from insights, ones that we need to keep us clearheaded.
