This recall of the California Governor has us thinking about the ridiculousness of politics.
I have other reasons to think about politics:
Things can get so scary so fast between people. Misunderstandings build up and then become an impenetrable wall.
Sometimes you can walk away.
Sometimes you can’t.
I try to go back, chase the tangled ends of the thread. What happened? What went wrong? What did _I_ do, so I don’t do it again?
HOW can I fix it?
When I was younger, I was convinced that I would be able to fix these things. That I would work HARD and FIND the problem and MAKE IT RIGHT.
As I get older, I realize that what I had formerly thought of as apathy in those around me was not quite that. To state it right out:
Sometimes, you just have to let things go, do nothing and let time ease you past.
Because that can really work sometimes! Amazing how so little effort can actually result in a big payoff.
But it doesn’t work all the time.
So I’m back to pulling on the threads of the knotty problem.
Do I leave it alone?
Or do I worry it a bit longer?
I don’t know.
What I _do_ know is that I’ve run across this problem before. And I also know that if you see a problem twice, the thing that is the same about those two problems is YOU. So what have I done to cause this problem?
was I just worrying it again?
These things make me so uncomfortable.
