Just because someone chooses differently than you doesn’t make them any better/worse than you.
I know within the medical freedom community there are very strong opinions. Heck, there are strong opinions EVERYWHERE these days, and I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I’ve seen a lot of criticism over the choices of those receiving a certain pharmaceutical product and while I completely understand how easy it is to get caught up in this I want to gently remind you that freedom is what brought us together and it’s what we’re fighting for, so we have to make room for those exercising their freedom in a different way.
No one size fits all, right? So when someone receives different information that leads them to make a different choice than you HOLD SPACE FOR THAT.
When someone reads the same things you do and comes to a different conclusion HOLD SPACE FOR THAT.
The desire for freedom unites us but it goes both ways. Let’s remember to be kind to those who think differently. You attract far more bees with honey.
Gently, gracefully educate, YES. Not because you know you’re right but because you CARE. At the end of the day, if someone chooses differently than you then celebrate their freedom to choose and demand the same in return. And remember when you’re in freedom warrior mode to hit ‘em with tact and fact and above all else keep it classy. #erinsfreedomtalks
