I talked about anger in my last blog. It helped me to acknowledge the problem and choose to change the behavior. I still get irritated when I watch the news but that’s far easier to let go of. There is a reason people hang on to anger. Underneath anger lies fear. Anger makes them feel strong for a short while. Fear . . . that’s the real problem in the world today.
We don’t like admit it, but we are afraid. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have something to fear in the future. Hopefully, their fears never materialize, but it’s a daily challenge to trust that we will get through this difficult time to a better place, both personally and globally.
If I could, I would fix every problem for every person in the world. (It’s a Pisces thing.) But that’s not my job. I can be there for those I love in appropriate ways, but everyone has to figure out this strange time for his or her own self.
What I can offer is the fact that we are not alone. I feel connected to others these days, including strangers on the street. That may be another Pisces thing, but I hear the same thing from my family and friends. We’re in this together. And we’ll get through it together. As long as we don’t go to the dark place of hatred and anger.
It’s a choice.
