Know there is so much cruelty in the world that you can’t ignore. It’s so easy to see all of it and hate the world for it. You don’t have to be positive all the time, it’s exhausting. It’s okay to feel angry at the injustices.
My faith in humanity is always shaking. This place can be so ugly sometimes, but at the end of the day, I can’t help but look around and see something good and beautiful no matter how small it is.
Out there, there’s a child dancing with flowers in her hair, an old couple wearing matching neon green sneakers, so many lil pups running around the park, a friend arriving at her brokenhearted friend’s home with a tub of ice-cream, an entire community of people coming together to fight for what’s right. You can’t forget that these are people too.
I know it’s hard to love sometimes. but you’ve got to try. Don’t let the world take your softness away. Hold on to your gentleness, your compassion, there is still so much beauty waiting to be found.
