Don’t complain about things you’re not willing to change.
Beautiful Humans –
I came across this post years ago, and it just kept slipping through the cracks. It may be outdated, but it is still such a powerfully relevant topic, that it would be wrong not to pass on.
A quote from the artist sums up my thoughts pretty perfectly:
We pass people in the street every day and only see their veneer. What they feel comfortable showing to the world often tells a different story to their private battles. Under the Red Dress is a project which attempts to tell those silent stories that people are not only wanting to tell, but that people want to hear. Everybody likes to be reminded that the person next door is only human, as they are.
In today’s day and age, it is so hard not to get caught up in the superficial way of life. It’s no ones fault, but it doesn’t make it right. We can be so cruel to one another, so quick to judge, and you never know the effect you are having on another person by acting a specific way. This goes for the positive side of the spectrum as well; you really do not know how much your words or actions can influence another soul.
At the end of the day… just be kind. We all have our battles and burdens, and it really does make a difference when you know you have people rooting for you.
