Most of my life, I have been told to “let it go” or to “practice acceptance”. Some things are just the way they are; I ‘can’t fix it, change it or influence it’. I’m wasting time and energy on things outside of my control. (Yes, you probably did utter one of these phrases to me at least once before).
- Do you have standards or will you settle for anything that works in the moment?
- Do you encourage yourself to learn new things or would you rather get told about things from someone else’s angle?
- Do you read about current events, foreign relations, international news, or science from reputable sources, or do you just skim over headlines in social media before you react?
