I believe love is the way. Love, understanding, empathy, compassion. When you begin to understand how truly complex humans are, you will begin to see that what’s behind their actions or words is usually a scared or hurt individual, an inner child, looking for the same love that you are. You begin to understand humans in another way. Don’t get me wrong, they should still be held accountable for their hurtful actions and everyone has room to grow and be better, but when you understand what’s behind what hurts you, you can meet others at another level. Each human shows up with a complex background with a complex life. Understanding this will release you from the pain of situations, knowing it’s not always entirely about you. Sometimes it is and there’s room to grow but usually it’s somewhere in the middle. Always try your best to meet people with compassion and love because chances are they have been facing and still are facing battles that you can only touch a tiny sliver of. I’m not sure I’m explaining this completely correctly, it’s past my bed time and I’ve gotten really into expressing my heart here so don’t mind me.
