Don't Be Outraged


We have to approach situations and information with an open mind. Fitting the “Recreational Outrage” mold is not the way to go. If we’re more worried about telling someone why we believe they’re wrong than whether or not we understand why they believe what they believe we end up being the ignorant party unwilling to learn from the opposition. It’s wiser to understand why we don’t agree rather than just not agree and never know why. Waiting for our turn to talk causes us to miss our turn to listen. If knowledge is power let others inform us and stop informing them. Ask questions instead of offering statements. Improve self knowledge. It’s pointless to attempt to grow someone else’s information if you can’t be sure that they’re willing to let us. Improving on ourselves is the only sure thing we can do to improve the world.
