When the world is unkind to you

When I look around at what's going on in the world, I hesitate to even go there, but our lived reality is what it is. The world has been throwing us an undue amount of shit the last few weeks. It's not life altering, wreck us kind of shit, but it does feel like one difficult situation after another has been piling up on us. "Well those people have it worse" isn't really the consolation and perspective that I wish it was.

What I hate is that I've probably started a half-dozen blog posts to complain about one situation or another, and then I delete them. Admittedly, in face-to-face real life, it's hard to be around people who mostly complain about whatever, but I don't think culturally we're willing to listen to people who are having a hard time. I try to be better about that for others, and I'm trying to make it OK to vent.

I just want the three of us to have less friction, if only for awhile. Our give/take ratio is way out of whack.
