I wanted to write to you about something that’s been on my mind. Sometimes I look at everything that’s going wrong with the world and I wonder why it is still like this, in the C21st! Why are we stuck on this continuous cycle of pain and suffering? I know it’s a bleak topic, especially considering I wanted this to be a love letter. But, I feel this is too important not to be voiced, don’t you think?
Remember when people, or a majority of people, wanted a peace revolution? I wonder why it never started, or progressed, so that we could now be thriving in a better world. At the same time I’m not surprised, if history is anything to go by, it was inevitable that it would not come to pass. However, in reminding you of something that was once wanted, I’m thinking we could rekindle that flame and hop back onto that train. I’m ready for that peace revolution now, aren’t you?!
Please don’t be disheartened, for there are many things I do love about you. I love that as I grow I try to look for the good in humankind, instead of focusing on the bad, and it is there, if you look for it! You can find it in the everyday little things that are sometimes kind gestures from complete strangers! What I love most is that once we remove socially constructed labels, we are all left with just one thing, you! – our collective and shared humanity. And that is why I’m writing this to you.
It’s been a long and hard journey since I met you. So much has changed and continues to change. Perhaps it’s changes as you and I grow. At times, my relationship with you has been difficult, I admit! I’m sure it will continue to be so, but in realising this, wouldn’t it be nice if we actively approached and worked towards a higher understanding. One where we didn’t repeat history. One where we didn’t justify and continue the cycle of pain and suffering. I only ask you to consider this when making future decisions and actions. If we choose it, they could come from a better place.
I promise to do better, I hope you do too!
Love + kindness
