We live in tumultuous times. When fear, anxiety, stress, and uncertainty are on the rise, anger and hate often follow. And where there is anger and hate, there is also fear and anxiety, creating a vicious circle. It’s hard to know how to break the cycle.
But break the cycle we must. And there is only one place to start – with yourself. Examine your own beliefs and assumptions, your own behaviors and actions. Weed out that which is toxic and feed that which springs from love. Anger, hate, fear, and anxiety are defeated with kindness, common courtesy, and respect for others. It may seem simplistic but the truth often is.
