It's really disheartening to read the thoughts of a number of people on my list the past few days with regards to what's happening in our world right now. As if things weren't already bad enough, some of you are just adding more ignorance, racism and bigotry to the mix. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.
Where is your heart?
Some I've unfriended already for blatant insensitivity, but then I get torn with the ones that remain because we're all entitled to our opinions and social media is meant for expressing them, and I don't need everyone to agree with me on important issues - especially on here, but the ugliness of a cruel heart is too much to witness.
And at the very least, I need a good heart to be the common denominator for anyone I associate with - even online. If that's the base, I don't care what we disagree on.
I see a lot of heartless conduct right now. It's appalling.
How is being kind so hard? How is educating yourself first so hard? How is thinking critically so hard? How is not believing everything you see/read so hard? How is compassion so hard? How is empathy so hard?
All the information and misinformation circulating right now is all too much to take in. I'm overwhelmed. I'm sure many people are. As if we need more garbage to wade through. We don't.
Spread some love and light, will ya? Our hearts are already hurting.
