Voting for Humanity

Dear Voters,

I respect your right to choose what matters to you. I respect your right to make decisions according to your beliefs. Beliefs are perspectives of truth, and I have them too. Mine may be different than yours. That doesn’t make you better or less than I am. We might have been raised VERY differently or experienced VERY different realities, so the things that matter to me may not matter to you and vice versa. This doesn’t mean that one of us is ALL right and the other is ALL wrong. 

We can use our differences to create a better world, but not by condemnation of the other. That is how we stay separated. Separation is how we end up supporting corruption on both sides. If we spread hate, we are supporting more hate, crime, oppression, fear, chaos, and misery.

None of us are perfect. No one makes all the right choices. When we are open to see that truth, we learn and grow from life’s lessons. How does anyone expect a large political party to serve us perfectly when each individual is imperfect? Each person’s perspectives of truth vary from person to person based on how each of us chooses to live in our own minds. Our perspectives are our power or our prison.

When we support what we are against having more of, we feed the chaos. When we support what we want to see, we are holding the vision and energy of positive change. If my vision is to see a UNITED country, my perspectives must be aligned with supporting unification. This doesn’t mean focusing on our differences, it means working within our differences and being open to see all sides, not just my own. This definitely doesn’t mean I will agree, but when I’m open to at least go a little deeper, I open the opportunity to find something that sparks a positive compromise. A balance that lifts us, and creates space to grow.

My hope is that our humanity wins. For that reason, I will choose to do my best to serve my country with love and respect for all. My choices will reflect what I want to see more of in the world.

With Love and Gratitude, 

A Better Me

Sorry for the Times I Didn’t Put Humanity First

Dear Humanity,

I owe you an apology. I got lost in what I was against, I lost sight of what I stood for. I’ve seen politics get uglier and uglier through the years and have felt enraged about some of the mud slinging. Yet, in my rage, I became one of them. One of the people I’ve said I didn’t want to be. I became a person who put agenda before people. I forgot to ask questions before damning other people’s beliefs. This is NOT who I am.

Even if I don’t believe in other people’s beliefs or agendas, I still must be held accountable for the energy I’m contributing. If I forget MY humanity because of politics, injustices, social causes, religious beliefs, etc. My energy is going towards the very thing I’m against. That will only make the hate stronger and that is NOT WHAT I WANT. I’m just as guilty as the person who used the same tactics to keep someone else down. THIS IS NOT WHO I AM

If I really want to make positive change in this world, I have to remember who I am and what I stand for. No life is more or less valuable than my own. The people I don’t understand have taught me some amazing lessons, but I only learn them if I apply the lesson in a positive way. I will not allow other people’s prejudices and entitlement ruin my beliefs about humanity. 

I’m going back to putting my energy toward the changes I WANT TO SEE in the world. I’m going to look for the best in humanity. My energy is going towards the people who are creating change to better and strengthen our communities, communications, relationships, human rights, environment, foods, resources, and positive treatment of children and animals. These are the people I want to give my energy to. These are the people I want to align myself with. I will no longer contribute my energy towards hate. 

I have many friends who don’t have the same beliefs as I do, if I don’t understand I can ask questions. I don’t have to consider them a horrible person because they believe differently. I love my life. I love the way I live my life. My beliefs create my life to be what it is. If someone’s beliefs cause them pain and stress, it’s their job to re-evaluate their perspective if and when they get sick and tired of it. My beliefs tell me to show up with compassion, empathy, and love—THIS IS WHO I AM. 

I hope you accept my apology for losing my way. Whether you heard my angry thoughts or not, I’m still holding myself accountable. I want to be better. I will do my best to put humanity first in all my daily exchanges. I will remind myself what I stand for in the face of hate, injustice, and oppression. I will contribute to the solutions instead of exasperating the problems that hold humanity back. This is my commitment to you.
