If I project meaning and value onto the nature of my surroundings, why is it so strange to think that I also project my own values and meanings upon the people and communities among which I find myself– values which do not in themselves exist, were it not for me and my own interpretations.

And therefore, we act upon our meanings and values that we project and perceive onto others, and we may very well– no, almost invariably– react based upon entirely nonexistent factors. The anxiety and trouble we stir in our own lives is none but our own doing. Likewise, however, how easy it would be to redeem ourselves from this chaos, if not for the powerful nature of habit.
