A Little Less Hate. A Little More Love.

Hello to the special reader of this post! We are wishing you the best as we write this post on letting yourself grow and rise this Spring and going forward! As humans we tend to overthink and stress on things in our lives that we may not have control over. This Spring we are asking you guys to maybe try taking a new approach to your endeavors and your spiritual pursuits. Challenge yourself to fall in love with you again and allow yourself the opportunity to let your best out. Try to face the challenges that unfortunately dim your light with a new grace and finesse. Rise above all the darkest corners of your mind that tell you that you are not worthy enough when deep down you can feel your power. 

 

For some people the joys of life seem dim especially as of late. We beat ourselves up for failures and failed promises that we made to ourselves and let that determine how we treat and view ourselves in this world where there seems to be a need for perfection. We ignore our best moments and continue to pick at our own souls by referencing our worst selves to further tattoo the emotion of “undeserving” perpetuate the things we hate the most. But what if we changed? What if you let yourself allow for the love you asked for to enter, the job you wanted, the car you look at with hope? 

 

Challenge yourself to speak about your highlights, we make mistakes, we fail, we get angry but that is all part of this life! The thrill that we seek lives beyond the fears we create in our minds. Would approaching that stranger at the bar be as exciting if you always knew you would get the number? The unknown is where the magic happens and the only thing stopping you is the fear of what others think. Your perception of their perception is the fear we live in and we deserve to release ourselves from self-hate and scrutiny but to look at life with hope and a purpose. Do the things you love and watch others love it in return.

Fight Against Hate

An illness is a disease or period of sickness affecting the body or mind. If you look up the most common illnesses you will probably see things like headaches, stomach aches, colds, and allergies but nowhere really talks about the worst common illness, hate. Hate spreads just like other illnesses and affects the mind even worst. Hate is what makes it scary for a black person to be stopped by the police for any reason. Hate is what makes Arab people sitting in an airport minding their own business uncomfortable. Hate is what makes it so hard for members of the LGBTQ+ community come out and tell people. No one is born with this illness, it is taught. which is why we must fight to teach a new. A way to treat people with compassion.

American author Gail Sheehy once said “If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.” Change will never come in comfort. As a society we have to push each other out of our comfort zones. We have to help others see things with an open mind. We also have to be ready to see things with an open mind. All too often we get frustrated when people don’t see our way. Then we give up on explaining our side or we get hostile while explaining it. We cannot expect change to come this way. Just like we learn our partners love languages, we must learn how to communicate with certain individuals if we ever want to get through to them. You may see it as a waste of time or energy. That you cannot change the world by changing this one person’s opinion but that is where you wrong. If we all do our part that one person can change the mind of someone close to them, then that person changes someone else’s mind and the cycle starts. It all comes from those extra steps. Not only must we have those uncomfortable conversations with others but we must take ourselves out of our bubbles to start those conversations.

This fight against hate is not an easy battle but it is a necessary one. We must not fight to make hate hidden, we must fight to rid hatred from people’s heart and minds. You are probably thinking what can I do? First, you can try to help someone around you, with a viewpoint based from hatred, see the other side of things. Do not belittle them, educate them on the situation. Second, get out in public with groups. Whether it is attending a protest or going to a parade, there is strength in numbers. Third, you can stand up when you see this hate or discrimination happening, even if it is not to you. Help your fellow neighbor and let them know that they aren’t alone in this fight and show the other side that we will no longer fold to them. Again, we know This fight is not easy but never doubt what committed group of citizens can do. They can surely change the world.
