It can be hard to remain positive with too much destruction and let’s face it, madness in the world.
There are times when it’s challenging to even exist. Who knew humanity would stray so far away from itself that to find a genuine connection with a person is rare nowadays. The things that should be so important isn’t. So much devastation everywhere it’s no wonder so many people are anxious and depressed we have so much to be depressed about and the truth is our future is uncertain. It is. To think otherwise is choosing not to see reality.
This isn’t a morbid post, actually far from it. I just wanted to share how easy it is to be fixated on the negativity happening in the world instead of being focused on what we can do and though it feels overwhelming like we’re not doing enough or not enough people actually give a shit that doesn’t mean we give in. Every bit counts and though it’s easy to turn on social media and read the comments on a post that matters and be disappointed in seeing how many people who just don’t get it or show no compassion, it’s easy to feel hopeless but remember the whole world isn’t on social media.
I feel like this often but I’m not going to give up. I won’t give up on the fire I feel inside and how much I care because it seems like the majority of people don’t.
Why we need artists and activists to keep pushing the boundaries putting both beauty and care in the world. To keep us inspired and hopeful that fuck yeah we’re not going to give up or go down trying we have too much to live for.
People are disconnected because they’re scared. Some are numb or act irresponsibly but that’s still fear. When faced with fear the human spirit acts on what it knows how to express and survive whether it’s loving and compassionate or harmful and hurtful. People disconnect because it’s a survival mechanism and living in survival mode keeps a person reactive not making clear choices. I’m not making excuses for the arseholes out there I’m merely explaining why humanity is lost.
Lost in fear. When fearful we disconnect from our bodies and not wanting to feel the full capacity of what’s happening inside. It’s too much to take. So we become self absorbed and not the good kind the destructive kind. We don’t feel compassion for another living being we only care about the pain we feel inside and how to manage it each day,
Keeping this in mind, if we choose to act on compassion knowing people are scared, lost in fear and confusion just not seeing clearly, we can make a difference that way by choosing to relate with kindness to those that you can feel are just needing some understanding.
Now I’m not saying to be compassionate to arseholes, yeah sorry no, we’re not fuckimg doormats but I’m thinking about more your neighbour that’s afraid to say hello or the woman at the shops that serves you who just won’t smile if we reached out to those with a softer approach that shit will make a difference,
We can’t give up on each other and yeah it’s takes the stronger ones to do this but we’re here for a reason and I believe it’s because we are the stronger ones some have forgotten, I never will.
I’ll do what I can I always have and I always will, Not giving up on any of you because I get the fear but I’m going to channel that to try and make a difference and put my heart out there especially when it’s hurting because it reminds me to never give up. I thrive better in darkness I always have 🙂
