Be Selective in Your Battles

Lots of triggering stuff thse days. Screen everything to protect yourself. Why? Because nobody else will.
That being said, another way to protect yourself is to ask this. It's important to speak out and stand up for your beliefs. Our suggestion? Always try to operate from facts versus gossip, slogans and other stuff that will get you sued.

As you do this, be selective in your battles. Do you really have to respond to every single post online on a subject? Most of the time, they have nothing to do with the actual subject. It's mostly really bored people cutting each other down purely for the satisfaction.

Does this improve the state of the world? No. Why then waste your time on it?

If you have to speak out, do it. If you have any choice in it, would doing it really help to get your message out? If not, try another outlet. Many times it's not volume but quality of the content that helps. I'm not saying don't be aware or care. What I am saying is that you can't deal with your pain and everyone else's all at the same time. It's also not your responsibility to save the world. If you could, yes the Nobel Prize would look cool next to the big screen TV. On the other hand, it's not your job.

We have a wide mix of stuff right now. Despair, anger and frustration. Suicidal thoughts come to mind (but we'll never act on them). Almost feeling paralyzed. The tiniest things take an enormous amount of energy. Then what do you do? It's more than just the usual ups an downs.

It's a nice sunny day. You go out and sit outside having a nice snack. Then, you feel miserable and abandoned. How do you cope with that?
