Cool to be kind
Everyday we are told of all the evil in the world, it surrounds us, and used to cripple me. I have a problem with absorbing everything around me, to the point of tears and sleepless nights trying to figure out how I can leave the world a better place than what it currently is. Isn't that the real purpose of life? Shouldn't we be looking beyond our own reflection?
If the pain and suffering in this world doesn't directly affect you that is your privilege, and what a privilege it is to not have to endure the pain others are currently facing. This doesn't mean we should ignore the suffering of others but use our power of privilege to help others to educate those that are lacking in empathy, to step out of your own bubble to make some change. It only takes one voice to start something new, others will follow your courage to speak up. I often Google good things in the world, I need to see the good as much as the bad. Bad gets all the press its what our society is fed daily, do we crave it? Maybe. Or is it to keep us living in fear? Big question I've yet to understand the answer to. Good is everywhere, we are surrounded by people who are currently changing the world for the better. Small acts of kindness day in day out go unnoticed by many. Kindness, empathy, understanding and love is what everyone needs. There is a lot of injustice and devastating events going on all around the world, with assholes walking freely around our planet leaving a trail of misery.
Focusing on the negative vibes will not change or stop it. Make changes around you, using your voice for good is a better place to start. What small acts of kindness are you doing? Google kindness in the world and absorb some positivity, join in and create kindness around you. Be kind even if its not always returned.
