Explaining our behavior

"Why did you choose your college? Why did you lash out at your roommate? Why did you fall in love with that special person? Sometimes we know. Sometimes we don't. Asked why we have felt or acted as we have, we produce plausible answers. Yet sometimes we think we know, but our inside information is wrong."

If we can't even understand ourselves how are we ever supposed to understand other people? Sometimes I want to give up.
