My primary failing as a human being.
I ask this question sincerely: How do I figure out what parts of society and the world around me to ignore?
Am I supposed to somehow arrive at a conclusion of what the world is like then ignore any information which does not directly correspond? Should I pay no attention to anything outside a certain radius of my experience? How is this radius determined?
Why must I find the world interesting and the process of making my way in it worthwhile? I should just do things and exactly what things I cannot work out, and let the consequences come. This will give me something to do.
