Have you gotten grumpier, happier? More tolerant, less tolerant? Is it context dependant?
Life these past few weeks has put me in a position to look at myself in this regard, and I think for many things, context dependant is the right answer.
I’m much more tolerant of Vaderling’s personal preferences and quirks of personality than I was with my two elder children when they were growing up.
I have become much less accepting of people in positions of authority being inconsistent in what they say vs what they do, unless they can and will explain to me the inconsistency (and have a good reasonable logical explanation)
I’ve come to distrust government as an institution. At the local and state level, my government is severely…demented is the best word I can think of, but that is largely a reflection of the majority of the people I’m surrounded by. At the individual level, meaning this or that official, I sometimes wonder how they even got into that position.
Um, well, I see this is turning into a personal rant about my life at this time so I’ll cut it short here and reiterate my question;
How have you changed as you’ve aged?
