Who Do I Want to Be...
Do I want to be that person that needs to be accepted, so badly, that I am willing to compromise MYSELF in situations where others may be "ganging up" on another person?
Not really - it leaves a pit in your stomach.
I have never really been one to "fit in", much. I have always had a few close friends; I think it's because the bigger the group of people, the bigger the drama.
Which is why, on the rarer occasions it happens, I have spoken up more. Not really to defend the other person; but to do what is right, and spread kindness. I know what it's like, from where they're standing.
I wish EVERYONE would REMEMBER that view, more. A lot of the world's problems could be gone, if more people would. I see it every day, in MY little piece of the world.
Though I AM still a work in progress ("lifer"), I am capable of working small changes into my everyday life, that will eventually add up to the big changes I need to have happen.
I challenge you to really take a look at your own life, and see if you're "Who YOU want to be"; and if not, start to make those little changes.
Maybe make yourself accountable, by mentioning it to someone you trust, what you're attempting to do. Who knows??! It may inspire them, in the process. Remember, "It only takes a spark to get a fire going...".
Have a good day, and be safe... #2021LATE beamererin.com #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes firstname.lastname@example.org
