I think this is very apt in light of what has just happened in Orlando. We are so busy complaining and worrying about our small insecurities, where there are way bigger issues in the world!
The LGBT community has to be brave and have courage every single day. Just walking outside of their door and being themselves takes courage on a daily basis. Now they are going to feel even more unsafe because of this malicious attack on who they are. It is NOT Ok. We should all be free to be who we are. No one has the right to attack you or take away your life because you are different or they don’t agree with your lifestyle. They were murdered in a place that they feel comfortable, in their own space. We need to all accept each other more. Spare a thought for everyone going through tough times right now because they are different, and they don’t feel safe.
This is a little reminder for us all.
Do something you have been scared to do. Live more, without fear, because the only person who loses is you. Have courage, and be brave. Join that gym. Go for that run. Book that overseas trip. Take up that new hobby. Befriend that person you see on the bus every day.
Stop worrying about the small things, and look at the bigger picture. There is always someone worse off than you, and I think we forget that. We get so caught up in our own petty problems or what we think are problems when people are fighting way bigger fights than us.
Please think of those that have lost their lives in this tragedy #LoveIsLove
