Why I’m Choosing Ignorance – Especially Now – Todd Stocker.com

ignoranceBig decision last week.  Multiples of them to be precise.  Decisions that change things.  Decision that transform.  Some would say we are progressing.  Other would say we are imploding.

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.  

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4
