I know my values. The problem is that my values clash so much with the world I have to live in and the people I have to be exposed to. So I'm constantly out of my mind bothered by things everyday.
The pain of stubbing your toe may be temporary. Though if your toe gets stubbed like 10x per day, the temporary factor doesn't apply much, cause you know it's coming back again very soon and is a constant pain to deal with. Even if you get more used to the pain, it never stops it.
