One of the most important parts of finding true joy and making the biggest impact on other people is defining the reason behind what you do every day. Once you’ve found your “WHY”, an arguably bigger task lies ahead…

“I’m getting robbed,” I told my friend, who had been patiently quiet while waiting to find out why I’d disrupted the conversation. It occurred to me, fleetingly, to call the cops. But I didn’t. I felt embarrassed by this entirely preventable theft and thought that such a call would amount to, at best, an inconvenience for the responding officers. Here again the clarity of hindsight shakes its fist at me, but lessons learned.
And then I saw it. It wasn’t the general content of the post that surprised me. It was fairly garden-variety outrage for these times. Though I didn’t personally agree with the claims, I had become somewhat immune to the attempts at labeling the reader with what kind of person they are for disagreeing, so it wasn’t that either. It was a demand nestled inside of it that struck me in a particular way: “unfriend me now”.
