Why Do We Act Like We Don’t Know?

Always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.

(2 Timothy 3:7)


We will never know if something works for us if we do not apply what we have learned.

In life we are given beneficial tools for living. But often, we don’t use those tools and wonder why our lives are continuously spinning out of control. If the Doctor informs you that you have high cholesterol and gives you a plan to lower it without having to take medication for the rest of your life, would you do it? Many people wouldn’t. Why is that?

          In this blog, I will share some reasons why we don’t apply what we know, the consequences if we don’t, and the benefits if we do.


Let’s dig in…

The most common reasons we do not apply what we have learned are:

·        Feelings of selfishness, most of us have been taught to take care of others before we take care of ourselves.

·        Disappointment, what if it doesn’t work.

·        Low self-esteem, we don’t believe we are worth the time and effort.

·        Peer Pressure, if we do this, we will no longer be accepted by our loved ones.

·        I’m busy, we have too much to do.


What happens when we do not apply the knowledge?

·        We stay stuck in your current situation.

·        We develop feelings of regret.

·        We can become depressed.

·        We make others responsible for our well-being.


The benefits of applying what we have learned.

·        Our self-esteem gets a boost.

·        We create self-love within ourselves.

·        We move forward towards our purpose in life.

·        We create inner peace.


In Summary

When we have all the information necessary to make the best decision for our lives, and we decide not to apply it, we compromise our mental and physical well-being.

We are purposed to do great things. Why hinder our destiny by not using the knowledge given to us.

           It is our responsibility to take care of ourselves. No one can do that for us. To get the best out of life, it’s important that we make a serious effort to be the best version of ourselves.
