Just because it sounds good doesn't make it true. Seek the whole truth, not just the version that pleases you.

Remaining closed to factual evidence that contradicts what you believe doesn't make the truth less truthful, it simply supports a distorted view of life based on limited information, half-truths, or outright lies.

People are often content to believe lies as long those lies fit the narrative they wish to follow.

Always remember that people naturally seek evidence to support what they already believe. It doesn't make them bad people. It does, however, make them impressionable to those who use this fact against them.

People are happy to root for the bad guy if the bad guy repeatedly reaffirms what they already believe. It doesn't have to be true. It just has to fit the narrative they already believe.

When seeking the truth, be sure to consider evidence that challenges your beliefs. Otherwise, it isn't the truth you seek, it's simply confirmation of what you already believe.

It is a sad day when compassionate souls sit silent and leave unchallenged abuses and acts of aggression out of fear of losing friends that are only their friends as long as they remain silent and hide what they feel.

If someone is going to abandon your friendship because you feel empathy and compassion towards others, believe in human rights, and are against discrimination, lying, and abuses of power, then they really aren't the kind of friend you want in your life anyway.

A true friend will never insist that you hide who you are and how you feel.

This is not the America I love. I am appalled by the actions of this country's leadership. This is an immense failure of the things that make this country great. The United States was founded on religious freedom. Discrimination is unconstitutional.

What's happening now is immoral, irresponsible, heartbreaking, and wrong. I am ashamed by this country's leadership and embarrassed that we even ended up here.

This is a total disgrace to America.

Abuse is NOT OK.
Bullying is NOT OK.
Lying is NOT OK.
Torture is NOT OK.
Sexual Assault is NOT OK.
Discrimination is NOT OK.

And no amount of twisted logic or intimidation makes them ok.

People will often go to great lengths to ignore obvious warning signs, red flags, and common sense in order to have what they want to believe fit the narrative they wish to follow.

They will even do so at their own peril.

They believe so strongly that they are right that they are blind to all that is wrong. All the while, their condition worsens and the life they want crumbles.

Addiction. Domestic abuse. Obesity. Stress. Debt. Self-injury. Eating disorders. Political ideologies.

Don’t make excuses for the monsters in your life. Don’t normalize them. And certainly, don’t ignore them. Because sooner or later you’ll see what you’ve been blind to.

Better sooner than later.

Refuse to let the decline of inspiring leadership, integrity, personal responsibility, and rational thinking deter you from setting the best example you can for others to follow. Don’t lower your standards to confront other people on their level. Always be the best version of yourself that you can be.
