Becoming jaded is one step in the process of understanding the world. Don’t wear it as a badge of honor over people that think the world is a beautiful place.
When you’re ignorant and have unrealistically positive views of the world and then have an experience that teaches you the truth of how dark the world can be. You become disillusioned. It’s a positive experience of education, a dropping of illusion. But it sucks and it’s painful. It often results in you becoming a jaded person.
And it’s only one step in your development as a person. The next step is to learn how to live a more realistically positive life using your new knowledge of the world. And to learn that even with all that darkness you were unaware the world is more beautiful than you realized when you were young and naive.
A lot of people get stuck at the beginning of their development because they think their disillusionment was an education and that they’re now wiser than everyone around them. But it was just lesson one.
