It would be difficult to argue against the opinion that we find ourselves in particularly tumultuous times… times in which we are told – even sincerely convinced – that we are at-odds, disconnected, opposition, enemies…
All the left/right shit, the political and ideological battles, and the venomous back-and-forth that has been enabled by the media and those in power can really weigh on us.
But, take a step back…
Ask yourself how much these issues really affect you.
Ask yourself how much you actually hate your neighbor, the stranger at the grocery store, a person who is standing right in front of you who has done you no wrong.
Puts a different lens on it, huh?
These arguments and the vitriol are revealed for what they are: not beneficial (not to me… how about you?)
