You know, sometimes the world can be quite a shit place. And at times like these it’s more important than ever to keep spreading love, staying positive and focusing on the good sides of life and the world. That’s the life of an optimist.
I just had a conversation with my friend about this topic, due to the recent events in the USA (Trump, war, Charlottesville). And to be honest, it left us both pretty speechless. And just to mention it, we’re in 2017. Racism, sexism and homophobia and so many more things shouldn’t be a thing. And especially not praising a man who brought so much hate and death into this world. Actually, I don’t even know what to say. It’s really sad that I have to say anything at all. Hating on other people because of their skin color, their race or their origin. That’s just ridiculous. Seriously. If you want to hate on someone, hate on things like racism and nazism. For real. Can we please all just calm down for a little bit? We’re all the same. We are all humans, we all breath the same air and we’re all going to die. Why create differences that aren’t even there? Why? And don’t even get me started on Trump and this insane idea of a war. Please, just stop. Honestly.
Sorry, but that had to be said. But what I actually wanted to tell you is how important it is to stay positive. And how you can all actually manage to do that if the world is slowly breaking apart. I know it may sound stupid, but sometimes there’s no other way than going back into your own, safe bubble and staying there for a while. I would probably have a depression already if I didn’t love my bubble so much. I mean, some of you may say that’s quite ignorant, but here’s why: you know, if I see people getting hurt and people doing the most stupid and insane things that make me speechless, I can stay mad for the whole day, of course I can. But I’m sitting here, in the middle of nowhere, not able to do anything that would really change the situation immediately. All being mad does is create more anger. And the world doesn’t care if you’re mad. Sorry to say that, but there are greater problems.
So I try to kind of safe the planet in my own ways. I retweet important stuff on Twitter, talk to people about important issues I really care about, I make sure more people see that change is needed and most importantly, I try spreading happiness. I try spreading love. And by doing that, I may or may not make somebody smile or make them feel better and that makes the world a better place. Even just a little bit. I try doing what I love every single day. Because if I keep doing that, other people will follow me and maybe, one day, everything will be a little bit better. At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
I know it’s hard guys. I know at times like these it’s easy to loose all hope. But we can’t let that happen. Never. Because then all the sadness, hate and anger will win. And we don’t want that, do we? So, please, keep being happy. Keep being good. Keep doing good. And keep love in your hearts.
I know this post turned into something quite deep, but I just had to talk about this important topic, because, as I said, I try to keep doing what I love and try to spread some positivity and help and love and happiness. I hope it works. And that you enjoyed this post. Please don’t hesitate to talk to me if you want to chat or anything else. I’m here. And until then I wish you all an amazing week. And please stay positive. And, as always, thanks for reading. x
