There’s a lot of judgment going on right now.
Many are dividing.
Have we forgotten that we are all in this together?
Whatever side you are on, we have completely forgotten about loving our neighbor.
How do we get to place where a disagreement isn’t a canceled friendship? How do we get to a place where your actions don’t matter, but intention behind those actions, does?
How do we get to place where we see each other as parts of ourselves, and we offer compassion for what we don’t understand, and pause a moment before we judge?
We are all in a very massively, dividing, and scary situation right now. Many dark sides of society are revealing itself in masses. Many who have previously been denying or ignoring these dark sides, can no longer look the other way.
It’s unnerving. It’s a lot for us to process.
But this isn’t the time to judge one another.
This is the time to come together as a society and support one another. We have an opportunity to help our friends, smile, laugh, and follow our joy, but at the same time, do the inner work on ourselves so we can do what we feel is best.

It feels like so many of us are feeling like no matter what we do, it’s not enough in another’s eyes.
This isn’t going to solve the issues. This is only dividing us even more.
And then we have an election coming up in a few short months and we think whoever we elect will solve all the problems. He/she won’t.
The issues start with us.
So I ask you, what have you done to look inside yourself lately? Have you taken a look at yourself and realized that you are part of the problem, too? Or are you simply pointing fingers in the other direction?
And perhaps this is also an opportunity to release the need to please others. Perhaps this is your moment to claim who you are, and know deep down to your core, that YOU are enough, no matter what others perceive of you.
It’s an important step that many are dismissing. When we judge others, we are truly judging ourselves. If we want to see change, we have to be willing to go into the shadows of ourselves and love and appreciate those parts of ourselves as well, so we can see where the healing still has to happen. When we heal ourselves, we can show others how to heal. When we heal ourselves, we help heal the collective.
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.
