There are so many things to say about the world in which we live. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .
So many atrocities, so much hurt and pain. What feels like so much entrapment and twisted alliances. I want to help everyone and every situation but the truth is I am so stretched, we are so stretched that I am not sure it's all possible. ⠀⠀⠀
Many will say it's privilege that is keeping me from acting out right now, and maybe that's true but I will not be guilted or shamed for how I process grief, how I contribute. .
I learned last year that I cannot give more of myself than there is to give for I become a shadow, no longer able to fight.
My point is there comes a time when all of us become battle weary, exhausted and to be able to continue we have to come home to ourselves. We need to find the wonder and curiosity in life to gain the necessary fuel to keep burning.
That feeling of loss, utter exhaustion, it's okay. You do what you gotta do to come home, we need you. We need each other.
" We will remain lost, wandering souls until we can look each other in the eye and smile" Marty Rubin
For now I will be over here giving what I can, deriding unjust acts, loving the children of the world all the while carving my way back to my center.
How do you come home?
