Are We Responsible For Our World?

Today in one of my classes, my professor prompted us with the question: Are we responsible for the world we live in? I thought this was an interesting question and immediately had thoughts on the topic. In my opinion, we are responsible for the world we live in. We are responsible for being good people ourselves and for spreading good across the world.

We are always talking about making a difference in this world, yet we think that we ourselves can't make a difference because we are only one person. But the thing is, if we all so something small, it will add up to a big difference. If we think that there is something wrong with the world we live in, we need to change it. We need to take action.

Everyone is responsible for the way they themselves act. We need to be kind to one another: hold the door, do favors for each other, smile, etc. These are the smaller things that we are responsible for daily, They are things we hopefully were taught at a young age and continue to do throughout our entire lives.

But, we are responsible for more than simply being good, we are responsible for spreading good. When we see something we don't like in our world, we need to take action to change this. There are some horrible things in our world: racism, climate change, sexism, mass shootings, and millions of other problems we experience, witness, or hear about daily. These are things that we may not be able to stop, but we can take action to help prevent them and create awareness.

This is our world, and it is our responsibility to change something if we don't like it. We may not be able to control everything, but we can definitely make a difference.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
