When as individuals will we stop choosing to support actions that promise us comfort and security at the cost of true justice. When will we be brave enough to accept responsibility for ourselves and for all of the injustices our actions bring upon the world. We need to realize that if any improvement is going to happen in this world, it's going to start within each and every one of us, with each and every one of our actions every single day. Stop pretending that this whole morality thing is so complicated. The rule is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and not "as they do unto you." Someone else doing something wrong to you is a terrible excuse to do something wrong in return. You've all heard this before, two wrongs don't make a right, so stop acting like when you do wrong by someone, the other person is responsible for it for hurting you first. That's a bold faced lie, and an awful cop out. You have the choice to "turn the other cheek", you have the choice to respond to spite with kindness. No one is responsible for your actions but you.
What's more important, your feelings? Or your actions? You have the capacity to respond to hate with love, so stop telling yourself you don't. You are a conscious being with a will of your own. In every moment of your waking life, what you do will affect someone else, and the real question is, "Do you care about how your actions effect other people?" If not, I pity you, I pity your selfish attitude. Are you really so special to yourself that you just don't care when other people are hurt by your actions? If so, you're what's wrong with this world. If you want your life to get better, you're the only one who can fix you, so stop pretending that anyone else is more at fault than you. Don't blame God. Don't blame the Devil. Don't blame society or corporations or the government. If you want the world to get better, make it that way yourself and have enough faith in your convictions to convince other people to help you.
You have the power to improve the lives of the people around you. Every good action you take will make the world a better place because everything matters. You matter. We all are significant, regardless of our size, so let's start treating each other that way. Do better.
