The Life I Choose

As life should be

I cannot be dissuaded from the idea that there is goodness in all humanity and neither would I want to be. I will always look at people and see the good in them.

People may think this naive of me but I do it, not for the sake of others, I do it for myself.

I want to feel good. I want to feel safe and I want to look forward to a bright future in a caring world.

I have no wish to bring myself down or to concern myself with things that I cannot change. That is not defeatist. Maybe one day I will be able to change things, perhaps even change the world, but if I cannot do it now, then I won’t let it ruin my day.

I know that putting all of your faith in people may eventually lead to disappointment and I know that I can be impatient with people, but I would rather feel good and have to deal with the consequences of my own disappointments later, when and if they come. This is easier to do if you begin from a position of believing in the goodness that is in all humanity.

I know that, just like love, hate comes from within. Love comes from our sense of connection, security and worthiness. Hate resides within us as shame or fear.

I know that sometimes I will be scared, but I will not live in fear. I will do things and experience things that I may not always be proud of but I will not live in shame.

Hate and fear should not define us, they should not make us angry.

For myself and all those around me, I choose to love and I choose to live with the goodness of all humanity in my heart.
