Ignorant vs Stupid (Don’t Be Both)
Watch or Read
We live in a world that is constantly evolving, and there is always something new to learn. With billions and billions of things to know about the universe, it's impossible for any individual to know everything. Therefore, we are all ignorant about something, and that is okay. What is not okay, however, is being stupid.
Stupidity comes in when we believe we already know everything there is to know about a particular subject and are not willing to learn more. The worst kind of person is the one who is ignorant but does not know they are ignorant, or the person who knows they are ignorant about something but is not willing to learn.
We should all strive to be the kind of person who is ignorant but willing to learn and open to having new experiences. Learning should not end with school or college; we should continue to learn throughout our lives. Google has made it easier for us to seek knowledge, and it is essential to be curious and naturally seek knowledge.
There are times when we do not even know what to search for on Google, and that is where books and conversations with others come in handy. Being open to receiving knowledge from others can be a beautiful thing, and it can open our eyes to things we did not even know existed.
So, being ignorant is not a bad thing, but we should not be stupid by thinking we already know everything. There is always something new to learn, and we should keep ourselves open to knowledge. Anyone can teach us something, and it is up to us to be receptive and learn from them. Let's all strive to be the kind of person who is always seeking knowledge and never stops learning.
