Today's post is called:
According to one definition aggrieved means:
Feeling resentment at having been unfairly treated.
And yet according to a second definition aggrieved means:
Having or showing a troubled or unhappy mind.
These are really interesting definitions! One is out there, so to speak. A feeling as a result of the actions of the exterior world. The other is internal, the result of one's own personal psychology. These are two very different things.
And yet they are the same as well.
As a regularly aggrieved person I can say it is a conundrum. Is it my fault, or the world's?
I don't think being aggrieved is very good for me. So maybe it doesn't matter.
I would like to be less aggrieved. But let me ask you:
What does one do with an unfair world?
It's almost always the world's fault,
and then, for good or ill, it's our responsibility from there.
