The Lesser of Two Evils

Yesterday was  “Election Day” here. So for the last month or so, I’ve heard lots of people talking bullshit…

I normally stay pretty clear of politics. I figure you’re going to vote for whomever you vote for, so why put the energy into the discussion.

Still, there is one aspect of voting that I feel is worth discussing here…

The “lesser of two evils” concept.

Why would somebody do that?

Forget politics for a second — that was just the segue to the topic. Where this habit really affects you is general life situations.

The “lesser of two evils” is getting married to an asshole because you think an asshole is better than being alone.

The “lesser of two evils” is keeping a job you know you hate, because you’re afraid to make the jump to something you might hate.

The “lesser of two evils” is putting out your album/book/manuscript before it’s truly done, because you’re tired of working on it and “something is better than nothing.”

In life, you should vote for what you really want. From the person you date, to the house you live in, to the job you work. A hamburger and a cheeseburger are very similar, but the one you really like tastes so much better than the other.

Don’t settle. Ever.
