Be one of the grown ups….

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:04 am by Aleksan

The whole point of democracy is that sometimes we don’t get our own way but others do. OK we have a poor sort of democracy, it’s far from perfect, but it’s what we have got for the moment. To get depressed and angry is understandable if you don’t get what you want, but basically childish.

Direct your anger into positive activity, like joining a party and becoming an activist or writing to your MP. Don’t vent your childish tantrums on the rest of us, who are grown ups, trying to get on with our lives in a difficult world. It will always be difficult and we must work to make it fairer.

Even the Angels bow to those that show restraint, said Buddha. Cultivate resilience and equanimity. Weirdly so called bad things can lead to good, and so called good things end up wrong. We don’t know where we are going, but walk on, standing tall – be one of the grown ups….
