You Are Responsible For Yourself, We Are Responsible For Each Other
New(ish) post! It's about...I don't really know how to give an elevator pitch for it, so just read it.

"To me, the corollary to “We are all responsible for our own emotions” is “We should be mindful of our impact on others.”


At first, that might seem like a contradiction. Which is it? Am I supposed to deal with my own hurt feelings, or are you supposed to avoid giving me hurt feelings in the first place?


I think it has to be a little bit of both. I think that in a world where people are careless or intentionally cruel with each other, dealing with your own hurt feelings is going to be a massive burden. I think that in a world where people refuse to place the ultimate responsibility for their feelings upon themselves, trying to take care of others is going to be a massive burden too. The only way this works is if we meet in the middle."
