Last year, I talked about all the things that I learned in 2017. I decided to do the same thing for 2018. The problem I had was that everything I learned in 2017 was carried over to 2018. It’s just worst than the year before it. So I narrowed it down to just the one major thing that 2018.
2018 taught me
2018 taught me that we need to be more respect for each other. We need to respect each other regardless of viewpoint or beliefs. There’s so much disrespect going on between our broken political parties that it’s turning people into monsters. The media is adding to the fire, more so than others. The media is trying to get you to think and go with a certain way. So by getting hot over a topic, it’s making you get hot because you obviously agree with their standpoint if you are watching them.
We need to respect people choices. Whether they are transgender, figuring out who they are/love, or even just believing something different than you. Respect their choices and support them in it because everyone needs some love. They might not be able to get that at home. You don’t have to agree with their choices to show them love and understand. They might show you a different side of what exactly you don’t agree with.
Learn how to disagree with people without being rude. It’s okay to have a difference of opinions without being a total douche bag. Sure, it might get a little heated but as long as you don’t make it personal then it’s will be fine. We need to stop telling people they are sensitive when they care so deeply about something they want to speak up about it. Let them speak out and raise their voice as long as they are aren’t being disrespectful or rude. It’s part of our first amendment right
So in 2019, let’s be a little kinder to each other. Let’s show more love and support to each other. You never know what will make someone’s day or help them out of the rut that they have been in it. We’ve all been in those rut and know how one ounce of compassion would raise our spirits or just help us get out of those ruts.
