I think the turmoil of the past few months is hitting me, hard.
Personally and globally. The personal turmoil – I understand that; I have not fully dealt with or comes to terms with the losses in my life.
But with the rest of life….not only in my geographical region either… across the world it seems as though human kind has lost the plot. Apart from the natural disasters we cannot stop (drought here in RSA, wildfires in RSA and Portugal), WHAT THE F%#! is going on with us?
- Politically, the US and UK can rival our good old JZ with “scandals”.
- There radicalised people committing acts of terror in the name of religion, causing hate and fear.
- Racism, sexism, discrimination against religions, sexuality, pretty much anything that differs from the “norm” are all pervasive in our society (our global society, no less).
Honestly, these things affect me a lot. I’m the kind of person who needs to know everything that is going on – probably the control freak in me. And I over-analyse EVERYTHING. Yet, it does all seep into my subconscious and keeps me up at night.
It may sound overdramatic but what kind – what level – of hell is this? Are we living in Dante’s inferno? Why? How can we make this better?
I think I need hope. I need faith. I need to breathe. Just like the quote featured above says – but how do you having hope and faith? What do you do when it feels as though your very soul has taken enough of a beating? How do you keep positive in times of despair? How do you keep smiling when the world is suffering?
Or am I a freak who feels all this too much?
This has been a very depressing post – and I do apologise… Definitely no suicidal tendencies here, just curiosity. Any comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
