Disengagement does not necessarily equate indifference, a lack of effort, or worse still, arrogance.
There is a kind of disengagement that is in fact an act of resignation. A quiet sort of confusion and struggle which could only be quelled by the act of doing nothing. Because investing effort risks yielding an outcome which often sadly amplifies the futility of desiring idealism.
I think the disposition to disengage is one that is most often wrongfully misunderstood.
People don’t realize that sometimes it is more painful to be quiet than to be loud.
