Self-Care, Choices, Decisions, and Selfishness

In the battle of acting with kindness and empathy versus hostility and ridicule — choosing a side matters.

Now is the time for reason

When you get down to name-calling and insults instead of reasoned arguments and discussion, you make it clear that you stand where you stand. If you only care about getting a haircut or served at your favorite restaurant — but not about the health and wellbeing of the people you come in contact with — do you think that’s good? Is it kind?

Choices, Self-Care, Decisions, and Selfishness

You can always choose to not participate, not engage, and watch from the sidelines. However, there may be consequences from that decision. You may find a lot of guilt, shame, and remorse if things turn uglier and you know you could have made a difference.

What does this have to do with self-care?

Everything. Why? Because self-care is too-often equated with selfishness.

We are stronger together

The entitled few and the fear they wield are themselves afraid of one thing: when the oppressed work together. It may take time, and there may be pain — but inevitably change WILL happen. It always does.
