First off, my opinion is no one is all good and no one is all evil. I think that even if you are the pope you have demons at times. Even if you are an evil mastermind driven to destroy the world, goodness resides within you somewhere. I think the problem today is that more people act on evil intentions than good. A lot of people that have the purest souls don’t voice their opinion much and are more comfortable living as an introvert or just being a spectator. Which is fine, but I feel if more of the good, pure and caring people in our world acted and spoke out more on their beliefs we could start to see a brighter future.
It’s not simply whether or not we want to change for the better. How we need to think, is we need to change for the better. There is no hidden secret to living in a better world. Nothing changes overnight and evolves into something beautiful. If we want to change, we need to put aside our differences and drop all the negative bias we hold for one another.
Global warming is not the main problem. War is not the main problem. Greed, lust, and power are not the main problems. Plain and simple. We are the problem. We contribute to every issue and then try to repair it when it gets beyond our grasp.
The time to change is now. Not tomorrow, not in a month, not on New Years when you make a resolution for two weeks. It’s now. You can wallow in self pity and blame people on the internet you don’t know or you can let your actions speak. I’ve come to learn that words may cause a little wind, but actions can move mountains. Hopefully we can realize that instead of moving back in time, we can set aside our shortcomings and re install a much brighter future.
