We share the negativity and think we’re spreading the word. Do we do it for attention? Do we want the world to know that we’re frustrated? Or maybe we just don’t know how to handle it. We see the problems as big and our impact as small. But what if we changed our approach and questioned our motives before we hit post? Take a moment to think of the receiver. How will they benefit from this? Will it cause them to approach their day with a negative view? How does it feel when you see and read all of the hate and fear? Would you vote to carry on the cycle or declare that it ends here? You can only change what’s in your control.
Accept the world as it is. From acceptance, we can really make a difference. We have to be compassionate for others because we’re all living here together. Acceptance doesn’t mean we have to like anything. It means that we put down our resistance and see the situation for what it really is. When we see a situation for what it really is, we can better understand it and better understand how to approach it
Be the change that you want to see in the world. If you want less hatred, less fear, less anger, then learn to work with those things within yourself. From there, enter the world with a new perspective and watch the impact it has on those around you.
Nothing will ever change if we continue to do all things the same.
