Turning it Off

We often fail to recognize the impact of all this hate speech on our psyches, and the importance of turning it off. Let’s not esteem it by repeating the words or the names of those who said them. We’ve all gotten the updates. I’m not suggesting denial. I’m suggesting an intentional break. Let’s go read or cook while Christmas music plays in the background or take a walk with a friend and talk about something else, perhaps something lovely in life.

This one thing I know for a fact:
Some people, when angry, want only to remain angry. I don’t plan on being one of them.

Love you!
