I maintain a level of silence regarding health topics unless asked. In most instances. If I feel there’s a public threat or widespread misinformation, I step up and speak. If I’m teaching a workshop where folks are investing their time and money to be with me and hear information, it’s a different situation.
Truth is, I’ve learned because I teach what goes against the grain, most disregard it, regardless of the science I offer. I’m OK with that.
I also do my best to refrain discussing C-19, as there’s so much white noise about it.
But this is my website, it can’t be censored or blocked, and if you’re reading this, you’re subscribed to my articles OR are willingly reading this. So I’ll share a brief concept for you…
I read a verbally aggressive post on Facebook the other day, advising those of us “out and about to stop being selfish and stupid.” (Even typing that makes my stomach turn in anger and pain.)
Besides having a violent tone which already triggers most of us, something else about this post unnerved me and I wasn’t sure why.
My household relies on those “stupid and selfish people,” like many other small businesses owners. They keep our doors open, rents paid, power on, food on our table, and in our case, food on other people’s tables. If I can’t afford groceries, I can’t deliver meals to people who need them.
There is NO promise of income and unemployment if the world panics and shuts down because of anti-science. We lose our livelihood. We tank our credit from debt of having a business—credit that takes years to rebuild.
Before you advise others what to do because of your own emotions, beliefs, and myopic viewpoint, consider the other side of the story. Not every business can deliver to people living in fear… some businesses rely on walk-in cultures and human contact.
