Do The Emotional Labor. Say hi even when you’re scared. Smile even when you don’t like the look of them. Treat them like a human being because that’s what you are. Find a reason to care for them because you deserve care too. Do the emotional labor, not necessarily because you want emotional labor too, but because they deserve it and that is what being human is. Or, sit on your couch, eat your potato chips, hang up the phone with aggression, and watch the world burn.
