Thinking about positive things has been really hard for me lately. I get caught up so easily in arguments about arguments and opinions about opinions; arguments about opinions and opinions arguments.

I don’t think I’m the only one.

It’s exhausting.

Can I encourage you today to look around at the people you love? Even people who might be hard for you to love? And look at them in a different light?

Like fellow travelers.
Like friends.
Like human beings.

Like people who are also struggling with their own set of circumstances.

Like people who might have a different set of values.

Not a worse set,
a different set.

Don’t just walk a mile in their shoes,
walk with them for a mile

Help them carry a load,
or carry them.

Or just talk.

Better yet, listen.
