Narrow-minds sacrifice contentment

Dear Editor:

When someone chooses never to accept himself or herself and feel it necessary to dip a toe into every “niche” that they find interesting, the result is not the expansion of their own identity, but the continual persistence to remain shallow.

This statement is solely in response to an article written by campus senior, Jesse Madsen, entitled “A Little Bit of Everything.”

Jesse provides an important point in how necessary it is to branch out, a socially diverse individual is, quite simply, happier. Since being narrow-minded is nothing more than the sacrificing of potential to maintain a mild and meaningless state of contentment.

When an individual loses the ability to ìdeepenî their understanding of themselves, more than mere potential is sacrificed. True contentment and assurance that comes only from personal discovery and the expansion of the mind.

Instead, consider spending the necessary time exploring what is out there, keeping an open-mind and following only the heart’s intuition. Eventually a particular niche will come to your attention, flipping on all sorts of lights you never even knew existed.

It is at this time, and only at this time that a constructive assumption of “how then do I live?” can be found out. Don’t let all your mingling go to waste!
