Though I'm not usually a fan of folksy sayings, "If all you carry is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail" is one of my favorites. I've had to unfollow friends because of this to avoid getting into petty internet arguments. It's like they've got their one pet issue and try to awkwardly contort and cram every news story into a mold that's the shape of whatever their "thing" is. It's incredibly myopic, ego/ethnocentric and it's frustrating to read from people that I otherwise have a great deal of respect for.

I don't know how to tell you this, but the problems in the world exist due to countless different reasons. Not everything is about you. Some of it is, but not all of it.
I imagine a few people are going to read this and think it's specifically about them and their "issue". Stop that...that's exactly what I'm talking about.

Expand your worldview and never stop expanding it.

I was in such a foul mood going to work this morning that I was passing judgement on farm animals that I drove by. There's a plot of land with horses on it on that pass every morning and I saw one of the horses eating grass. Out loud to nobody in particular I say "You lazy piece of shit I saw you standing there munching on that same patch of grass when I was driving home yesterday, do something with your life". Hopefully the rest of my Friday goes better.
