Why can’t we all just get along?

Seriously, why?

Why can’t we all just get along?

This has been on my mind lately. Multiple levels, multiple ‘verses I swim around. Family, work, heck, even the world! We don’t have to like each other, but it would be pretty sweet if we chose to live and get along with each other in spite of ourselves.

A simple hello. A friendly (enough) smile. Allowing each other to live and let live, so long it harms none.

That’s one of the keys, isn’t it? That what we do harms none. Which, truth be spoken, only works if we all agree not to hurt each other in the first place: physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially… you get the picture.

Sure, I could talk about my specifics that drove this post, but there’s truly no point. Yours and mine will likely differ. This time next year, my sentiment will remain, but the particulars likely will not.

That’s the other thing. The sentiment will remain. Hopefully, I’ll be wrong and we’ll have utter peace in 2023. But I’m a realist as well as a dreamer.

And I also prefer to live in peace than the alternative.
