I think in an era where our country is as politicized and polarized as ever, it’s helpful to remember that we all have something beautiful to contribute to this world. Our different experiences, different journeys all contribute to the melting pot of America. Our energies all come from and return to the same place. We are all LIFE.
We should not be so quick to distill another human being into a singular label, because labels are a lazy mental tool for judging and dismissing another human being rather than listening to their voice and trying to find common ground. The disagreements we feel today about each other can be extremely visceral, but we have to be cognizant of how negative the energies associated with those feelings are. Those negative energies will permeate other aspects of your life as well.
Move outside your information comfort zones. Get out of the echo chamber you’ve built for yourself on social media. Listen to people who think differently than you. Remember that ALL OF US have value to bring, and by closing yourself off, you shortchange your potential growth.
