I wanted to start this month off with something powerful and then I remembered this amazing AMV. We have all heard it before, that things will eventually get better, but something else that needs to be heard more often I think is a different quote. It is a quote that comes from of all places, Gandhi and it is the following.
“Be The Change You Wish To See In The World”
If someone reaches out to you asking for help, be there for that person. If something feels off with a love one of friend, don’t ignore it. Ask them “Are You Ok?” and be that person that is their to listen to them. Sometimes that is all a person needs in a world that tells them to toughen up and it get’s better and not be constantly judged. Sometimes the best thing we can say in a situation is nothing and just be there as someone to listen and to let them know that yes they have been heard and validated and this does not just go for the LGBTQ+ community. This goes for everyone. If we can be kinder to each other, maybe just maybe we can make a kinder world. I know it’s not that simple to change the world.
This world is all we got and right now it is a pretty messed up place filled with so much hate towards others for little differences. Instead of looking at our differences we need to focus more on what we do have in common.
