The world is filled with good people afraid of making bad choices. So we’ve come to rely on those we trust to make decisions for us because taking responsibility for bad decisions paralyzes us with fear.
But today we should not be afraid. Take comfort knowing that everyone around you is a good person, and none mean you any harm. They simply have a very different perspective on what it means to do the right thing. It’s a part of them as it is a part of you. Ultimately, we are lucky we as a species can differentiate “right” from “wrong” at all. This innate morality has always helped us to persevere.
That said, when people are hurt is our planet is hurt. One day, we will all have to make peace with our bad decisions in hopes that we can be forgiven; but today, please go out of your way to make a few, small, good ones down here on Earth. And please, do it because it’s simply the right thing to do.
