Inauguration

I just watched the inauguration. I admit I helped in the division. I was angry and frustrated with Trump supporters. But, if I am to help do my part I must refrain from vocalizing my frustration. I would like to rise to the challenge with compassion. It does me no good to continue to condemn people.

Perhaps it is better to just disengage. I can’t stop my friends from believe what they want. I can just have empathy and be sad for them.

Kindness

There are times in your life where you have a choice to act hateful or with compassion. Sometimes… those choices are about yourself. I have a problem not being compassionate with myself. I am not kind to myself. Other people have capitalized on that irrational thought.

It is good to be compassionate to others. It is even better to be kind to yourself. If you take care of yourself, then you can take care of others.
