Episode 80: It Must Be Nice… Envy is an Ugly Emotion

Are  you someone who has worked hard and has some nice things? Are you proud to have those things? Have you ever been confronted by someone who says, “it must be nice” as if you somehow don’t deserve, or didn’t earn those things? Envy is an Ugly Emotion… an emotion that leads to resentment, anger and hate.

In this week’s solo episode I talk about a conversation I had recently had with someone that was confronted with this very scenario. It should come as no surprise, but still does, that there are those who would confront someone who has nice things and say, “it must be nice”, when there are those in politics and the media that drive and perpetuate class envy as they do. We must resist those who constantly attempt to divide us by class through the perpetuation of envy and disdain for those who have more than we do. 

Episode 69: Misery, Politics & Extemism… coming soon… DTH Quickshot Episodes

I’ve recently had the idea to start doing some shorter, often random more spur of the moment types of episodes in addition to the regular weekly episode. There are many things that come to me each week that I’d like to share in hopes of engaging more with the listeners. Some of these may just be audio from a YouTube, Tik Tok or other platform, or some may just be quick recordings I do when something strikes me. They may just be me responding to emails or messages on social media. Either way, they’ll likely be random and of varying lengths and topics, so watch for them and share whenever possible.

This week’s episode was just based upon things I’ve seen, done or had on my mind over the course of this past week. Are you miserable with your life, job or maybe a relationship? Misery is a choice that only you can choose to change. I also spoke this past week to the national leadership team of Braver Angels about the We The Peoples’ Forum which I’m honored to be a part of. If you have not heard of that, be sure to check out Episode 66 and my conversation with David Lapp of Braver Angels and the Working Peoples’ Project.

Episode 66: The Peoples’ Turn to Speak, We The Peoples’ Forum… with David Lapp of Braver Angels

Do you ever feel like the average working class American has no voice in today’s polarized political climate? Are you sick and tired, as I am, of those in big government, big tech and big media keeping the average working class American silent while giving those who wish to keep us divided the loudest voices? Why settle for being a prisoner of polarization? What if there were an organization that were to give the average working class American a chance to sound their voice at the podium? Let’s talk about the “We The Peoples’ Forum”, part of the Working Peoples’ Project within Braver Angels…
