I wouldn’t know.
I’ve take a break from the hype and the chatter. It has become, for me, mind numbing, provocative and crippling. I’ve chosen a different path – dare I say – a better one. The path of ignorance.
I’ve chosen not to scroll through the endless comments, debates and cattiness that flood the walls with too abundant a frequency. I’m avoiding the name calling talking heads on both sides of the debates because I am already firm in my stance. I’m shutting down the recolored images and clips of pride that swirl on social media.
Don’t get me wrong. The ignorance I choose isn’t regarding the issues — I know them well. I’ve studied them, counseled people in them and watched lives destroyed by them and I will continue to help where I can. My ignorance is an avoidance of the useless debates — the angered responses — the cowardly anonymous posts.
Sometimes you have to shut off the “more” for the preciseness of the “less”. In other words, I am guarding my heart — as Proverbs says — from the negativity and therefore, I chose ignorance.
