It’s that time again when I find myself starting to judge. We all have our little problems like “what am I wearing for that event”; “what am I cooking tonight”; “I broke my nail”; “I have a bruise on my knee”… What information is really important to share with the world constantly over the patient internet? At some point, the moment comes when I think to myself: Does the world have no other problems? And that’s exactly when I bring myself back.
There are definitely more important things for me and probably for the majority of humanity. But for someone, it is particularly important to share what their pup ate this morning. Perhaps it is precisely here that we realize how empathetic and tolerant we really are. If one smiles at something that means the world to another person, then that is an arrogance that already points to something. If then they even start to get angry about it, they should seriously question what is behind that reaction. What is worrying is not how and why others put themselves, their lives, or their interests in the center, but how I react to it.
Is it envy? Is it insecurity? Is it a character trait one would like to have? Is it dissatisfaction that one doesn’t have the time to share their lives constantly in this way? Is it boredom because one is already past many of those shared experiences? Whatever it is, if it triggers negative reactions in someone, they need to look closer. Since no one got harmed, it is a personal thing to clarify. Otherwise, there would be no or a positive reaction.
We never know what is behind that seemingly redundant information. It can be loneliness, low self-esteem, a newly discovered content in life after hardships, … or even the same inner tensions as we may react to it: envy, dissatisfaction, a missing character trait, or a completely new experience. We have this inner navigation system that alarms quickly through inner tensions. This way, I can check and adjust the frequency promptly. Because who am I to define what is important and what is not? It is none of my business.
Today’s topic may sound a bit ridiculous to some, but it can be the trigger for a broader reaction. It’s important to recognize this early on, before you artificially make life more difficult for yourself than necessary.
If you are not interested
in repeating information you don’t need
then simply skip it.
But skip it with love.
In Love and Light
