It seems that I can’t get out of the house without experiencing the pain of others. I deleted my Facebook account last year to escape the pain and noise of the echo chamber that it is, but even walking into public, people appear beat-up and defeated.
Only yesterday I made the mistake of allowing an acquaintance’s Instagram post interfere with my thoughts and her update haunted me all day. The post was a photo of the sky, a beautiful clear, blue sky with a caption that read, “I am just about infuriated at how beautiful today is.” One more in a continuous stream of angry posts. I had to comment, “Don’t almost be mad.” It’s as if people require anguish in their lives and when even nature does not comply, they rebel and insist on locating that elusive misery.
A few hours later I ran into an old friend and somehow the subject came around to him saying, “Everyone is unhappy.”. I didn’t know if he was being very honest or trying to make a joke, so I asked him to clarify and he said, “Yeah…everyone is unhappy including myself.” All I could think of was, “Not him too!”.
Each day gives me more purpose and makes me feel more dedicated to turning people around. Making them remember or to see through the fog of the delusion that it doesn’t have to be as miserable as they seem to be experiencing.
My book will be release in October 2018 and I’m very much looking forward for those in need to discover it and start to change their lives for the better. Let’s be done with this misery!
