When the car in the next lane drifts into your lane, you react and honk your horn, get out of the way, or brace for impact. Those reactions keep us safe from real danger. They're immediate, and drastic.
The problem is, we think there's danger everywhere. We react "to protect ourselves" (at least that's what our brain stem tells us). It's immediate, drastic, and rarely appropriate.
There's no danger. There's no threat. And if you're reading this then it's going to be ok. There's time, space, and resources that allow us to live a life proactively. That means asking ourselves the hard questions and wrestling with the outcome. Not just slapping each other with our words.
