Being Safe in Modern Society
Posted August 27, 2015on:
Our world is a complicated place with a huge and diverse population. Everyone has their own issues they are dealing with as well as their own ideas about how the world is or how it should be. Some of it is good, some of it is malicious. There is a constant tension of motivations and instigations.
Most of it is beyond our control. The only thing we can control is how we handle what goes on around us. In this, you have a choice. You can either get caught up in the fray, or you can take charge of your own life. It is up to you to decide what will help you to be safe in the world.
Begin by focusing on your own world and creating safety in your own space. Act in a way that is conducive to being safe. Use your rational thinking skills and trust your instincts.
Do not feed societal fear and feelings of perilousness. Often, our feelings of worry and anxiety are not rooted in reality. They are based on “what if.” Recognize the difference between “what if” and “what is.” This is how you can begin to relax and live safely.
