In light of recent events, I think it’s important to remember the value of tolerance & love. Every single person that has ever lived is different. There are of course people with similar interests but ultimately we are all very much individually different. With that in mind, we have to find a way to peacefully cohabitate on this planet. The earth is just a big rock, some think it’s flat and others think it’s round. At some point, imaginary lines or boundaries were drawn to separate people. Within those imaginary line sections, people added value to the inhabitants of some sections and removed value from others. Should there be a zombie apocalypse there will be no distinctions made by the zombies, they will eat all of us the same. I’m sure the only difference in taste will be a result of the individual's diet and not their skin color, zip code, the language they speak, the religion they practice or their sexual preference. Just because you disagree with something doesn’t mean you are right, it never has and it never will. We are all in a similar struggle to make sense of life and its purpose, continuing to use our differences to self-inflate should not be the answer. Self-love is the first and most important step for all of us to gain a level of tolerance that will end what we see on a daily basis. The internet sess pool is slowly but surely creeping into reality as more and more people are allowing the virtual confusion to impact their real life actions. When you love yourself enough, the differences in others doesn’t affect you so negatively. You achieve a sense of self that makes tolerance very easy. When you love yourself enough it also makes it very easy to love others even if they don’t share your same beliefs and preferences. Love is positive energy, when you apply it to yourself you make it very easy to apply to others. Anything positive is worth your time and your energy and those are your two most valuable assets. Nothing positive can be accomplished through negativity.
Love yourself as much as you possibly can. Feed your mind a good diet. Feed your body a good diet. Feed your spirit a good diet. Spend as much time as you can doing the things that make you happy with the people that you love. The more your day is filled with these things the less time you have for the things that don’t appear on this list. When you encounter someone who is different from you engage them in a way that is positive and productive. Be the good person you are, don’t worry about how others will perceive you especially since they are the one traveling in negative space wasting their time and energy. Be their positive example to follow, if you want the world to be a better place it starts with you.
