Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.
I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.
a philosophy of life
Learn what you can change; work to change it for the better.
Learn not to let what you can’t change destroy you; work to influence it in small ways that build up over time until you can change it.
Learn patience with the world.
Learn who you love; work to show them you love them.
Learn who loves you; work to show them you appreciate their love.
Learn patience with yourself.
Work to clear a space for yourself where you can spend some time not working.

Publishers are he fucking worst with their eBooks and libraries are taking it in the chin.
