We give tradition and obligation far too much credit, and control over our decision making process. We should be compassionate and always seek to reduce the harm we do to others, but not as a substitute for seeking to organize our lives in a way that fosters flourishing.

Be kind, minimize your footprint, and live your life. We only get the one shot at this, and time is running out.

I try to value ideals according to their merit, not the emotion or history attached to them
I try to be an excellent receiver of bad news
I try to demonstrate respect for my own boundaries
