I am really very determined to make a difference in this world.
When I look around at the world I see the hurt. There are so many people suffering. I want to help. I don’t know how. Right now my activism is very small. I am still working on making my small corner of the world ok. I struggle with anxiety and depression and this legitimately affects everything I do. My parents always taught me to do my best. But sometimes my “best” is not “the best”. Sometimes my best is just the bare minimum. Get up, eat food, go to work, come home, go to sleep. I’m making my peace with this.
I want to change the world though. Not in a big monumental way like inventing a new smart device or developing a cure for a disease. I just want to tell stories that matter. Or that make people a little happier, give them hope. I think empathy is the cure for everything. If we were a little bit less about ourselves and a little more about others the world would look entirely different.
I want to be about others. I want what I do every day to help someone. I would have an easier time getting out of bed in the morning if I knew what I did that day would help someone else.
I don’t know what that looks like yet, but I’m desperate to find it. I am really very determined to make a difference in this world.
