The American Heritage Dictionary defines the word cynical as “Negative or pessimistic, as from world-weariness.”
World-weariness. That feels fitting, doesn’t it? We don’t desire to become negative or pessimistic, but as we run this race, we see the depths of humanity. The despair of a broken world. The way human beings hurt each other. And we can grow weary of it all.
We don’t want to shy away from hard conversations here at Velvet Ashes, so let’s get real about cynicism! It can creep in and catch us unaware, so let this week be a soul check-in time. Where do you see yourself becoming cynical? What are you doing to combat the world-weariness?
