My only tip for you in 2022 and forward

Change your beliefs to align with reality instead of finding an alternate reality that aligns with your ideas.

It’s ok if you feel hurt, upset, and disappointed when the objective reality challenges your beliefs; throw some tantrums if you like as long as you eventually correct your thoughts to align with science, evidence, and history.

We need critical thinkers and fact-checkers to face the global challenges ahead of us.
