No Matter What We Expected, Here We Are

I cannot and do not want to explain this, but here we go…Things haven’t been usual or typical for anyone globally in so many ways. The last 6 months have revealed many things I wish I never knew. I’m not alone in this, so yeah, hold on and pray. 

Things have been so very different in so many ways. In-person, contact? NO, not in 2020. Reach out virtually? Well, that has its issues. Shut down and hide? You’re giving in to fear. Once again, there are real things that can cause many long-term issues, but don’t talk about it, don’t acknowledge it. Just smile and be quiet.

What if I’m very informed and can’t stay quiet? Well, “you better be quiet,” because no one wants to hear what you have to say. So, here we are, here I am, afraid to say anything to anyone about anything. That does not help in any way for anyone, yet it’s the best thing to do is these very odd days.

So many loving people in my life have urged me to speak the truth that I know, have lived through, and understand. I’m thankful for all encouragement. In my short time on this planet, I know that no one wants to hear from you if you disagree with them. That fact (in my life it IS a fact) is sad. 

I’ve had so many family members and friends who have encouraged me to speak the truth I know. Then they explain it is not the truth, and I need to change my message and belief system.

Let me be very clear, I have no message, I have no agenda, I’m not trying to convert anyone to anything. I want to be heard, accepted and valued, even if we disagree, because I will listen to you and respect you no matter what you say to me. I have that in some of my family, and they share the same safe space with me. 

When the world is burning and crashing in many ways, it matters not to me where you came from, or what you believe. If I can help, I will. If you’re near me, I’ll grab you and pull you to safety. I love all and honestly wish to help save every living creature in my little world in any way I can. I will do what I can in every way, yet I am a living creature worth saving, too. 

The cuts and daggers of some words have been deep, so I’ll be quiet and rest for a while. At some point soon, I’ll be a very safe space to land for all those needing refuge from the chaos that is life in 2020.
