Spontaneous Reactions

Consider, if you will, the spontaneous reaction(s) we have been conditioned to elicit given a certain circumstance or occurrence.

How often do you say, “That’s too expensive,” or “That is an ugly color,” or “How can she wear that?” or “I hate that song,” or make other snap judgments that are really thoughtless knee-jerk
reactions to some modern stimuli?

I catch myself doing it all the time and, with egg on my face, have to sheepishly backtrack why I feel and act the way I do.

I would argue that such thoughts and feelings are brought about by some cultural conditioning, media drubbing or social programming.

Sometimes I am angry for being so gullible/moldable/compliant and other times just laugh it off as part of some twisted mind game.
