Quote by Avril Lavigne: “Why should I care what other people think of me...”
I Think I Know How To Explain To You That You Should Care About Other People
Or, to be more specific, arguing-about-politics fatigue. If this seems unfair or unreasonable to you, we are never going to see eye to eye. If I have to pay a little more with each paycheck to ensure my fellow Americans can access health care? Poverty should not be a death sentence in the richest country in the world. Congrats, this tax break is not for you. I cannot have political debates with these people. Our disagreement is not merely political, but a fundamental divide on what it means to live in a society, how to be a good person, and why any of that matters.
Now be honest, how much of your time do you spend worrying about what other people think? On some level, we ALL care what the people around us think. As naturally social creatures, it is a completely normal and human desire to want to be accepted and loved for who we are.

Danielle Tcholakian Longreads August 23 minutes 5, words. A few years ago, my middle brother and I were in Boca Raton, Fla. When he would include me on forwarded political or debatably humorous e-mails with his Boca Raton pals — mostly politically conservative, Jewish guys like him — I would reply-all to any I found false or offensive in any way, lecturing men at least half a century older than me. He never yelled at me for telling off his friends and never took me off the email list for those forwards. During the presidential election, I was in college, and I convinced him and my grandmother to vote for Barack Obama.
