Season 2: The Greener Grass: Where You Want to be
Ep. 4 Nothing You Do Really Matters
There is 7 billion 46 million people on this planet and most of think we have the audacity to think we matter – George Watsky, Tiny Glowing Screens Part 2
Why are you upset?
Does it really matter?
Do you think your life is tough, that may be, but there are a lot of people that may have it worse
What if you lost everything in a natural disaster? You can replace belongings, so is it as bad as you may think?
Are relationships replaceable? Steven thinks they are and Josiah agrees. It may be tough, but we can live without someone over time. How many people did you think would be your friends forever from school or work, only to never talk to them again when you leave school or your job?
Don’t sweat the small stuff, when there are plenty of things out there that are much worse. Don’t let a small 5 minute problem ruin the whole rest of the day.
It is all perspective. Steven shares an example of stopping to help someone stranded on the side of the road in the rain. For Steven, stopping was a small quick thing to do that didn’t have much effect on his day, yet it made the day for the man stranded. He was extremely happy and grateful for the small quick stop that was minimal and had little effect on Steven’s day.
What if you were in that situation? Would you want someone to stop and help you, to show you they understand your struggle? Treat people how you want to be treated. What if you needed help? Wouldn’t you want someone to stop for a minute to help you? So why wouldn’t you take a simple minute out of your day to help them?
Your attitude is key. Some of your problems aren’t as bad as you think they may be.
