In the wake of last week’s horrific shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, we all have a hard time keeping our eyes off our phones and we are quick to judge other people’s behavior.
The world has turned into a toxic place where we can’t stop ourselves from venting our frustrations and venting, as well as expressing our thoughts.
But in order to truly learn from the tragedy, it’s important to remember that we are all human and all deserve to be treated with compassion.
That’s why we must all work together to learn how to share our anger with others and not to hurt them.
I’m not saying that we should all stop venting or that we shouldn’t hold each other accountable for what we say.
But the truth is, it takes a lot of patience and empathy to help others.
There’s a reason why the world has become so toxic.
When you hold your tongue, the world sees you as an insufferable jerk.
It’s hard to be a good person.
You can’t make everyone happy and you can’t turn your back on someone else who is in need of your help.
So I hope you will be gentle with each other.
The first step is acknowledging that we all need each other and we all deserve compassion.
There is no such thing as a bad relationship.
The second step is understanding that sometimes we have to hold each others hands to get through life.
And then the third step is accepting the truth that the world is a toxic, cruel place and it is up to us to find a way to move forward.
