I’m so tired of ego’s, the desire to be seen as being right is overthrowing compassion, empathy and honesty. I am seeing people building up themselves by tearing down others and my heart is breaking.
Here in the UK we have just faced a general election one which has become the breeding ground for lies, hate speech and vitrol. Division, propaganda and so much more on all sides.
It has felt like darkness has begun to suffocate the country, not because of peoples vote but because of the disrespect of others.
As we more towards the season of light I have to have hope. I have to believe in a brighter future.
I just have to.
Darkness can only win when all light Is removed, I refuse to remove my light.
So I’m moving forward today, with kindness, compassion and determination, we have to have hope and if we cannot find it right now we can be it, I will be it.
Darkness will not win.
