Be the best fucking human that you can be!

It’s not hard to be kind.

It can be hard to restrain frustration.

It can be hard to be vulnerable.

Its a challenge to confront yourself.

But honestly, taking an extra second to hold yourself back from being aggressive or rude. Or be extra thoughtful. It’s uncomplicated. And I think more people need to realize that.

And it makes you feel good. Selfish as it is, when you do kind things to others, you confirm the belief that you are a good person. There ceases to be any reason to get defensive and combative when you can honestly say that you are putting in a conscious effort to be the best human that you can be.

It is challenging to recognize the complexity of people and situations. It is very easy to oversimplify things and react to and judge things at face value. But that takes away all of the purpose of life. To me, that makes life on earth worthless. We are here to discover and connect and try to push through the bullshit. To untangle the complexity of the rules that govern nature through science and untangle the complexity within and between ourselves through art and literature and communication and hell even science.

Take time to think about how you are expressing yourself. And how others are trying to express their selves.

Put in a conscious effort. Work on yourself every day. Challenge yourself to make the best decisions you possibly can. Yes, you will always make horribly wrong decisions. But at least you can know that you gave it your best effort.

And it’s okay to realize that you did not try hard enough. It’s okay. Forgive yourself and move on and promise that you will try better.

Keep working to do better.
