Lots of pain and near-death can precede survival.
“Hey you might not die”
Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Face it as a temporary reality instead of burying your head in the sand behind questionable statistics. Infection rates are rising daily in the USA. Do the right thing.
It’s not forever. But it *is* right now. Face it so that more of us can get through it in the end.
Then, we have that in common. I hold certain things close to my chest as they would not make any sense except to those who understand already, which is rare. So, to “walk among”, I adopt ways of communication.
I’m transparent online but I also try not to communicate in ways that are overly confusing or easily misunderstood.
For example: I say “agnostic”. What does that mean? Am I really? Agnostic is broad. Covers a lot of territory. Is it a lie? Is it true? It is and it isn’t.
It’s not that my beliefs are confused. It’s just that explaining takes the kind of time and understand that doesn’t happen in most basic online discourse.
