Do What Scares You. Repeat.
I'm scared. Really scared.
The world is a mess. War, hunger, oppression, hatred - we've got it all. Even the Earth itself is falling apart. We don't have much time left.
Every time I watch the news, I get another jolt of it. What have we come to? What are we doing?
But I'm an introvert. I hate conflict. I never dreamed I'd be an outspoken advocate of anything at all. I thought I'd sit in my proper place, do what was expected of me, keep to myself. And be happy.
Turns out, I can't be truly happy when others suffer needlessly. I need to stand up against injustice. I need to do better and encourage others to do better as well.
So back to the drawing board.
I need to face my fears.
Over and over again.
I need to be afraid and do it anyway.
Because I'm needed.
By human and non-human animals alike.
And they need you, too.
So let's stand up, together. Face our fears. Make the world a better place.
Because if we don't, who will?
Until next time,
