Make love not war…

I started my blog around 2 years ago now as a space for me to write, I love writing and I needed an outlet for that creativity. Since then I have become more involved in the blogging world, I have become super organised with scheduling posts for certain days etc and I’m always thinking about my audience and what they might like to read.

Today is not one of those days… Today is a day that I need to write for me, for my own sanity to get these thoughts and feelings down. So bear with me while I sit here with my cat, face smelling like the garlicy face mask I’ve just applied and furiously type this post which probably won’t make any sense.

This morning I woke up and did my usual trawl through social media to see what’s been happening. I was hit with yet another story of violence and corruption – a stabbing at Leytonstone station. I made the silly decision to read through some comments on the video and basically I AM DONE!

I am so 100% totally and wholly done with this world and what it is becoming! Please someone transport me to a secluded island where I can live in peace surrounded by animals.

I cannot deal with the hate anymore, the stupidity, the isolation!

 

I am often told that I am a hippie, in fact one comment I read this morning described another commentor as a tree hugger as they were advocating peace… when did this become something to ridicule and mock!? I for one am happy to be a hippie if that means that I have morals, spread love and positivity and treat everyone as a bloody human being because that is what we are!!!!!

I was lucky enough to be born into a pretty privileged country. But that’s all it was…luck! They fact that the sperm I once was happened to be in my dad’s white balls and not the black African guy!

 

When you really stop to think about how significant we are in the grand scheme of things you will find the answer is … not very! So why does everyone seem to think they are the centre of the universe? Why does the government feel like they can make decisions on behalf of the country? What qualifications do they have in this regard?! David Cameron is just a human being like me… he is no more qualified than my cat to run a country. Why do we even have governments? Why can we not live in a society where we can make our own decisions democratically?

The reason we cannot do this is because people are cray!!! There are people out there so filled with hate and violence that it would be impossible to create such a caring and fair community. I think it is ridiculous that I have to walk around terrified at being killed… not by natural causes, not by a freak accident or natural disaster but by another human being!!!!! Because said human beings think they are above everyone else and have the right to take another life just because they feel like it.

LIKE SERIOUSLY!!! How is this a thing?! I honestly cannot get my head around it and the worst thing of all is that I don’t see it getting any better – I don’t know how this can end… it’s gone too far.

 

The state of our world has flipped my life completely upside down, how do they expect me to bring children into this? Should I have kids? Is that just cruel?!

It is a known fact that we cannot survive without the world… but the world can sure as hell survive without us! So why do we think it’s ok to kill it, to use all the recourses, to completely screw the entire thing up to a point that it may no longer survive and therefore neither will we. Someone tell me why this is a good idea or how it is helpful??

I may be deemed to be a hippie, I may be told that I live in a fantasy world but the fact is that the things I dream of are totally plausible and possible. With so much hate in the world I refuse to become one of them! I will not hate on other human beings no matter their race, gender or religion. No matter what my beliefs and thoughts are in comparison to theirs. I will not be brainwashed and I will continue to be a compassionate person.

 

Spread love, spread positivity and abolish as much hate as you possibly can! Stay strong, stay safe and stay united as human beings!

Peace and love xoxo

    YES. THIS. EXACTLY. There are already so many awful ways to die – accident, cancer, heart disease, infections, like LIFE IS ALREADY SO HARD! I hate that now I have to worry about leaving my house and going to the store that some idiot with a gun is going to bust in and slaughter us all, or worry about getting on the train that some doofus with a bomb wants to get his manifesto on the evening news. I work so hard to care for and protect my life, I don’t understand why these violent morons have the right to take it away from me! I’m angry too, but killing MORE people doesn’t make ANY sense. What the world is coming to.

    • Doesn’t it give you a headache just thinking about all this crap! No wonder so many people are stressed and depressed like seriously let’s all hold hands and take a chill pill! – and your spot on, two wrongs don’t make a right! I feel like too much male ego is involved in all the governmental rubbish

  2. I have to admit I got a little uncomfortable when you mentioned your dad’s white balls lol but you have raised some good points here. When I think about the world today, its kinda scary! I rarely watch the news anymore because I think its full of negativity and lies…. and to think this is the world we are going to be raising our kids in.

    • Hahahahaha soz girl! I couldn’t resist! But yes, it’s really scary… I steer clear of the news too, which isn’t great for my job but I do not want to be constantly depressed! Is it better to live in an innocent happy bubble? I’m not sure but for now that’s where I’m headed! X

  3. I love this post, I will even admit to laughing at some of your comments, David Cameron being compared to your cat being my favourite 🙂
    I tend to walk around quite blinkered to all of these things, I can’t see why we can’t all just start over a fresh and try to rectify everything that is wrong in this world, if only it were that simple. x x x
