How do you find hope in a seemingly hopeless situation?
This election result and the person that won is almost unfathomable to me. And yes, I live in a country led by a very different type of human being and will likely not be impacted to a great deal by this election.
What do we learn from a person that seems to embody hatred?
Trump is a man with deeply unhealed wounds. Those wounds and his behavior have never been called to account because he has become a master at ignoring and avoiding them. He has embraced them and somehow has become a president. That is terrifying.
The work lies with the individuals now because the system didn’t protect them.
We must deeply examine how we show up in the world. How do we want to respond? With hate, apathy, blind hope that he doesn’t fuck everyone on our continent over? No.
If you heal yourself, you can heal the world. When faced with hate, choose love. Our only job is to heal our wounds so that we can show up fully in love to support the people within our sphere of influence.
As you move out into the world today, let your conversations be filled with a different perspective. Begin right now to influence one another. Be kind, look for things to be grateful for and ❤️️LOVE❤️️
