Today Let’s Spread a Little Love.
There has been a crap ton of unfortunate tragedies occurring since, oh well I don’t know, a long freaking time. However, I feel like we as a whole are losing our compassion for others. Now, that could easily be the massive increase in social media engagement over the last few years. It could just be we were always this way, and no one knew, because they weren’t necessarily shouting it in every comment or status on Facebook. Even so, the things that I have been reading, and furthermore the things that I have personally heard people say has made me sad.
I grew up with always living by the rule, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” I would have to tell you, I live pretty close to this even today. I am human, so I mess up sometimes, but I would never want anyone to talk to me in a rude way, so I try really hard not to be that way towards them. What’s crazy is not everyone does. What makes it worst is that people believe that just because they are not saying it face to face, it doesn’t hold as much merit. Like, it doesn’t count.
Public Service Announcement,
I’m going to put this as clearly as I can. It doesn’t matter how you do it, being rude and saying whatever rude thing you would like, is not okay. Hating someone because you don’t understand or believe it is wrong is not okay.

We need to show love towards others and we need to receive love in a grateful manner.
You could completely not understand why a person lives a certain lifestyle, or not agree with it at all. However, you can still try to understand. You could even still disagree, but don’t judge them for it.
We need to love more. Lead our lives with compassion and understanding. Take the time to get to know your fellow human being. We are all very different, but we all make up humanity.
So next time you find yourself being a little less lovely towards someone because you don’t understand them, take the time out of your day to talk to them. Try to understand. Even if you can’t, still accept the fact that they are human and so are you.
If we are going to make it as a whole, we need to start building each other up with compassion and love, instead of tearing each other down with hate and malice.
How do you spread the love?
