those who are very afraid to question their own values ​​and their own actions and prefer to hide behind hardness and determination may have unconscious or subconscious reasons for this.  In other words, whether you consider it an enrichment or an irritation to deal with these levels of the self is a very personal question that is completely independent of meditation. If you absolutely want to stay exactly as you are, you should not only avoid meditation, but generally avoid any form of reflection.
