As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
What are you putting up with? Perhaps a “friend” makes comments that eat at your self-esteem. Possibly you’ve witnessed an injustice or experienced microaggressions from co-workers. Maybe you are angry about the various incidences of racially-motivated mistreatment that have come to light in the U.S. and around the world. Abuse, discrimination, bullying, exploitation – none of that is acceptable. No one has the right to violate another person’s basic human rights and dignity. Whether it’s happening to you or someone else, now is the time to do something. Don’t sit passively by and watch a wrong be done. Stand up for what you believe in. Push back if someone is crossing the line, even if it is uncomfortable. If you continually look the other way, those small compromises will eventually chip away at your core values and erode your character. Be true to yourself. Help others if you can. If you see something, do something.
Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!
