In a world with so much darkness, the light will only grow brighter if you begin to love truthfully and purposefully. That begins with looking in the mirror.
Talk to yourself about the privileges you have, the prejudices you hold, and how you can begin to untangle yourself from the hatred sewn within your heart to best serve your community. Are you bringing people together with your words and actions or are you simply displaying fake allyship to get a few extra likes on social media?
Are you calling out Islamophobia, racism, and sexism whenever you see it or only when your friends are around to bear witness? Are you going to bed knowing that you stepped out of your comfort zone and allowed your heart to grow, because of the relationships you tried to build with people who are different than you?
Don’t be afraid to let your heart burst open: spread all the love you have to give [by doing your own inner and outer work to dismantle the kyriarchy].
What are you doing to bring truth and justice into your heart and the world?
