Staring at the blinking cursor on my computer screen I think, is it possible to have so many things to say that you can say nothing at all? Because I think that’s where I am. Not just in this moment, but in life.
Where do you begin when everything is coming at you from different directions? You don’t. You don’t begin, you stop.
Remove yourself from the chaos and adjust your circle of concern. Sometimes doing nothing and having no response is the best response. The noise of the world has gotten ridiculous and I’m tired of contributing to it.
After seeing a few friends remove themselves from social media and hearing their reasons why, I get it. Opinions are everywhere, judgment is plentiful and it’s usually those with nothing of value to say who talk the most. It’s a constant noise and never ending.
I find that I am most at peace when I am simply quiet. It’s amazing the things you can see when you quietly observe the habits of others. It’s interesting the way people feel the need to speak about others and render opinions, forgetting their own flaws. It seems to be the human condition to do so. I’m guilty of it, as are you, but I’m also sick to death of it.
I find myself fascinating so I think it’s great when others do too, but just a reminder..
