Tehillim One Hundred and Twenty: Balance

“For a long time, my soul dwelt with those who hate peace (Psalms 120:6).” When I read this verse, I started to think back to an earlier time in my life. I think that each person hits their own personal peak in terms of activism or extreme points of view, and for me it was in college. At that point, I was completely convinced of my own correctness, and the complete accuracy of my point of view. Since then, I’ve definitely mellowed out. My social circles have become more diverse, and I’ve become much more comfortable navigating the gray area between the black/white nature of right and wrong. I think it’s a much more peaceful way to exist in the world, and I strive to maintain that balance to the best of my ability.
