Cultural Quote #130: Survival Instincts And Gratitude

The way people are wired biologically in regards to their emotional responses is that if everything is going well—everything that’s going well is invisible, because we habituate to anything that’s predictable. And we’re very sensitive to threat. So even when many things are going well, we’re going to pay to what isn’t.. partly because it’a not efficient to constantly be grateful for things that are predictable. It takes too much mental energy.
