i had the impulse to just tag this palestine but i refrained

It’s really interesting how we go about choosing things. How we go about picking what’s important and what’s not. How we go about treating something with more attention than something else. How we are selective in the help we give, how we are actively ignorant of some matters, and how we overall approach situations. Do we give something more importance because of the situation or because of our connection/ties/relationship with it? Do we help because it helps us or because it’s in our best interest or just because we want to help? Do we give something more importance because it was previously ignored or because everyone else is doing so? Do we pick what’s important based on what’s told to us or because of what we know of it? 

I would really like someone to answer this for me.
