When we think one thing and do another, we experience cognitive dissonance. It’s when our thoughts kinda get into a fight with our circumstances.
Same thing when we’re confronted with a
situation that doesn’t chime with what we know to be right; we’re conflicted as we try to fit ideas or people together and put a frame of understanding around them all.
