Commonly used phrase: “It’s not the end of the world!”
Intended meanings: “Your situation could be worse”, “It’s not as big of a deal as it seems”, or “All hope isn’t lost.”
Implied assumption: If it WERE the end of the world, now THAT would be something worth worrying about.
TK’s Two Cents:
We don’t have any evidence to suggest that the end of the world, whenever it does occur, is actually a bad thing.
All we really know about the end of the world is that it is the end of precedence.
Even the end of the world, as we have been conditioned to conventionally think of it, isn’t the end of the world.
What lies ahead? No one knows.
To be ignorant of the actual is to be open to the possible.
So, be open.
Whether it’s the end of the world or not, new possibilities are on the horizon.
At least that’s the way I see it.
