I think we can all agree that sometimes it feels like the world is absolutely chock-full of jerks – people who carelessly and selfishly make the world a shitty place to live.
Sometimes it’s through relatively small acts like littering, and other times it’s insidious behavior like nepotism and racism.
It feels like it’s all around us, all the time.
But has your nose become so sensitive to the stinky smell of rude, selfish, and exploitative behavior that it’s starting to take a toll on your well-being?
Then the question I have for you is this: If you’re so in tune with doing the right thing, why is it fair for you to feel like crap 90% of the time with anger and bitterness?
You don’t have to relax your standards or turn a blind eye to get some relief. There are other things you can do to keep your high moral standards yet stop hating people and feeling awful in the process.
It is possible to feel happier and more connected to beauty and goodness in the world as you continue to elevate your cherished values.
