I am trying to be positive.
It is a 2024-me thing.
So far it is working out.

I am a broken human, I used to be negative most of my life and we all know how much people love that quality in others.

It takes me a tremendous amount of energy to be positive.

The good thing is, that it started paying dividends almost immediately. I am more polite on the Internet and in person. I try to empathize, even when I am internally screaming what an idiot.

Projection is a real thing. Whenever I get angry about something or someone, it is usually because it’s something I am completely insecure about myself.

That is why I listen to those angry demons in me, reflect. After that, all I have to do is decide if my contribution to the conversation will make things better, or if I should just stfu.
