A reminder on the political season and the price of rage
This is brought to you by the following:
I accept that many are angry (and possibly raging) about various issues in the election. This is understandable. Just remember that following the Path of Fire has a price and you may burn things you did not intend to, including friendships. That “enemy” you are screaming about could be your friend, your friend’s mother or someone else dear to your friend. If you must follow that path, know the price and accept it.
Passion is very important and what motivates us. Anger and Rage are strong ones that tie to quintessential survival reactions. Sometimes, however, a little Distance and Reason are also important. The issue you see as crucial to your survival or that of your loved ones may not be as stark as you see it in the moment.
