Why do people make a lifestyle of poor decision making?
I would like to understand. I'm not talking about one or two bonehead decisions. We are all guilty of those. But I'm referring to strings of bad decisions and lifestyle choices. And the other thing that baffles me is that, often, people don't see the problem. They think this is normal. I fail to see how this can be. I fail to see how someone wouldn't notice, amidst all their issues, that life would be better with some better decision making. Here are examples of what I'm talking about...
Multiple baby daddies/mommas
Constant drama (he said, she said, "I'm pissed at her because...", "I'm never talking to him again because...",being confrontational over every little thing you don't like, pot stirring of all varieties)
Choosing to buy non-necessities and then living in a panic because bills aren't paid
Living like animals then being shocked and dismayed when CPS shows up
Having babies you can't afford (on purpose) and then fuss about struggling
Those are the first few that come to mind. I truly want to understand. How can it not dawn on someone that they are making bad decisions and there's a need to reevaluate their choices? Are people just that dense or is there some other issue? Do people enjoy living in stress every day? Please enlighten me.
