Partisan? Please Remember.

Feel strongly about your side of things? 4 things you must not forget.

1. We are all doing the best we can with the tools we have.

We have to remember that no one wakes up in the morning and decides they will do the worst they can that day. We are all doing what we think is best. Those of us who are on our side of the fence, and those of us who aren’t.

2. To create a better world, we must be better ourselves.

We have to remember that while we work toward a world that’s just and kind, we need to live with those two words at the tippy toes of all of our footsteps. It takes many, many trees to make a forest.

3. Important changes don’t depend on attachment to our emotions.

We have to remember that the important outcomes are certainly not dependent on how we feel in any given moment, but rather the foundation on which the human race survives – the dependence upon one another – the strength to love those we may not understand – and the power that comes from bipartisanship.

4. Our ultimate end goal is one and the same.

We have to remember the path is the same for us as is for our enemies. We are all working toward the same ultimate goal – freedom from the tyranny of our own mind. Freedom to be happy. Freedom.  It’s only how we get to this destination that is different.
