This is what I believe.
Those who struggle and get lost within their brilliant minds are not broken.
I now know I am not broken, even though I have felt it most of my life. That I didn’t belong and I just didn’t get ‘it’.
What I see are incredible women and men, who are struggling to make sense of a weird world, which likes to keep us trapped in our own anxieties and fears for its own gain.
We live in a world which seems to win when the masses are kept ‘at bay.’
We live in a world which is funded by large ruthless organisations, who grow by us being ill or being so sad that we buy their products in the hope that it eases our pain.
We live in a world where research has shown how to cure our worst diseases, and yet it is hidden from view as the world would lose too much money, and it would rather we lost loved ones instead.
We live in a world that should be more connected than ever and yet we feel lonelier than ever.
We live in a world in which individuals have changed their fate single handedly over and over again, yet we continue to believe we are powerless.
We live in a world which is full of people who seem happy to destroy our planet and risk the future of our species to satisfy an urge to own more stuff.
We live in a world where people are respected for what they own and how they look…and not always the difference they make.
So no, lovely. You are not broken.
I think what has happened is that you have woken up just a little more than the rest of the world, who are operating on autopilot and can’t see the craziness which surrounds us.
You have found yourself in a frightful world and you feel powerless. We need a sense of control as a basic human need and without it we feel lost, unsettled and unhappy.
The fact that you are hurting is a sign that you care and that you want things to be different and yet we all feel so small and unable to change our own circumstances, let alone the state of our struggling world.
The fact you want to change is what’s important and you just need to see how powerful you are and how much good you can do in the world, if only you could be set free from the traps of the mind.
So, next time you catch yourself thinking there is something wrong with you…please replace those thoughts with something more empowering. Believe in yourself and give yourself the opportunity to grow from this. Give yourself space to change and to move yourself into a more empowering space which will allow you to regain your power and start rising once again.
We only have one life so let’s not let this crazy world strip us of our one opportunity to be happy here on earth. Let’s laugh in the face of the system and show it that it can not beat us down. We are stronger than that. We are stronger than them. Especially when we unite.
You are an incredible human being and you are capable of more than you will ever know.
I know this. You know this.
