A lot of emotions have been flying around lately……… this time of the year marks the anniversary of life changing events that took place…. Hurtful, Evil Events……. Events that changed me….. changed Us.
I am reviewing my old journals during those dark days……. At the end of my journal I asked myself a profound question…..
“Do you think people are doing the best they can?”
I ponder this again…………….
If I believe people were not doing their best then I can hold that against them. Couldn’t I? I could distance myself from their stupidity, ignorance, and arrogance…… How would this mindset serve me? What would it breed? What would it grow?
What if I choose to believe people are doing their best in this broken system? How would this mindset serve me? Would it mean I would have to stop loving people for who they ‘could be’ and start loving them for who they’ are’? Am I capable of doing this?
