Now, if that wasn’t too passive aggressive for you, what with all of those ellipses, I think we should talk about what draws your energy to something so angry. Do you enjoy being angry? Or have you just gotten so used to it that you don’t even notice anymore? Anger is not always a bad thing, and you can do a lot of positive things with anger, but clicking posts on social media generally isn’t one of them. Perhaps you should examine what is really bothering you.

Is your favorite politician doing poorly? Are they doing well, but nobody cares? Or perhaps they are receiving negative attention from your friends and family, who clearly ought to know better? Ah, yes. I thought so. Well, let me give you some soothing and calming information. It doesn’t matter. Nothing you can post online will change the minds of your associates. Do you know what would be more useful? A walk outside. It’s a beautiful day! Why not go out and enjoy some nature while you can? You won’t regret it. It will be good for your soul.

But are you worried that your candidate will not win, thus ensuring the demise of the nation, therefore preventing you from enjoying some quiet time with yourself? Here is another secret for you; it still doesn’t matter. Honestly, if you want to change the world, go find some people and have a conversation with them. You might change¬†their worlds, or better yet, they might change yours. And when you have become mutually compromised, go out and change your community. Elect local leaders who share your values. Make your town an awesome place to live. Pick up some trash. Plant a tree. Volunteer somewhere. Find a church that is feeding the hungry and bring some food over. Make an actual difference.

You will find, as your community improves, that the surrounding communities will want to improve as well. They will ask you how you did it. Tell them. Share your information. Let the tide rise. Lift all of the ships. Have the safest, most beautiful state in the country. Run for office yourself. Dedicate your time and energy into making a positive impact on those around you, and on the world in general. Build the tomorrow you want to see. Release yourself from the need to click on angry blog posts by scared people who want you to be scared too. Don’t be scared. Be proactive. You can do it. It’s why you are here. Just click away from me now, and go have a conversation with someone. I know you can do it. I’ll meet you outside. Peace.
