Speaking of self-betrayal, I can't sleep. Why l, body, why T-T

Next time you betray yourself, come to me and I'll give you a hug. uwu

How so?

A betrayal is a violation of a trust or promise; you can trust yourself or make promises to yourself, and you can violate that trust or promise. (Though completely violating your trust in yourself would seem to be a pretty wretched place to be—though it certainly happens, usually involving addiction or similar—violating promises made to oneself would be the much more common case).

Arguably, since we're just messy neural networks, this could be as simple as nueral subnet A reaching a different conclusion from neural subnet B; i.e. that just because you're one person does not mean you are of one mind on a topic (literally).

Alternatively the same grey matter might react differently at a different time, possibly with different stimuli, creating dischord between the decisions made at times A' and B'.

My point is, humans are not fully consistent rational agents; of course they can betray themselves.
