120. How to… do the scary stuff.

Let’s face it, guys: sometimes the universe is a giant douche. Sometimes, I sit back, and I watch people be ugly to each other, and petty over the most trivial crap, and all I can think is, “Really? So, we’re going there? This insignificant thing is that important? Does anyone realize that there’s much bigger shit going on in the world, or is it just me? People are starving, dying, killing one another. Good people are getting handed karma’s shittiest poker hand, and they’re still trying to stay in the game, but some of y’all are losing your damn minds over shit that doesn’t matter.”

Why, though? Why?

Maybe those people are just luckier than some of us? I don’t know anymore. What I do know, though, is that people matter. Some of them are kind and some of them are cruel. Some carry more weight on their backs and in their hearts than others. Some of them are fighting demons others of us will never be unlucky enough to understand… and they matter. People matter. And our relationships with people matter. Do you have to like everyone? No. No you don’t. That’s ridiculous. Not everyone is going to agree, and some people are toxic to one another, and sometimes things just don’t work out, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a deep breath and be kind to one another. It’s not that damn hard.

The next couple weeks are going to be difficult. Sometimes, I feel like a broken record saying that, waiting for things to even out or make sense just a little bit more, but it is what it is. The one thing I’ve promised myself is that I am going to be as positive as possible. I am going to hold my head up, and I am going to hope for the best, even if I’m preparing for the worst at the same time. And that’s not going to be easy. The scary stuff never is. The hard stuff never is.

But that’s okay, because I know what’s important, and that’s the first step. If you find yourself dealing with stressors and difficult people, take a step back. Look at what’s going on in your life – and try not to assume anything about theirs. You don’t have to be cruel. You don’t have to prove a point. You don’t have to be right. Try taking a step back if you need to. Try being kind. Opt for empathy instead of apathy and ridicule. The world is already an ugly enough place. We don’t need to add to it – not the first life, or the second one.
