There's this theory I like to believe in called the chaos theory. This theory is based off the belief that one small action can cause a very large and completely different reaction. One of my favorite examples of this is called the butterfly effect. The butterfly effect states there is enough power in the flap of a butterfly's wings in New-Mexico, to cause an immense hurricane in China.
It's crazy to think something that seems so small and insignificant can cause such a life-altering event, but it's true. We are all part of the chaos. Every single decision we make today, affects the way the world turns tomorrow.
You can never get rid of the chaos, just like you can never get rid of feelings. No matter what you do, it'll always be there, surrounding you with every step you take, yet hidden in the shadows. We must begin to shine a light on these things and embrace them as much as we can.
It's easy to pretend as if we don't matter. It's easy to think what we say, what we do, how we act, don't have an impact on anything of importance. It's easy to act like the chaos isn't our fault. But, if you take a second to think about it, and I mean really think about it, all the bad in the world didn't just magically appear one day. We caused it. Humanity, politics, love, death, every single thing you can think of, even things you can't, have a cause and an effect. While living in this chaos, we have the opportunity to change it and make it as vigorous as possible.
Smile at that stranger, tell that person you love them, be kind to one another. You may not be able to control the world, but you can control your actions. All I know is this: if you make your actions ones that are good, and kind, and loving, then maybe, just maybe, that is what the reactions to these things will be as well.
Make your role in all of this chaos a virtuous one. Like many things, fear and hate may spread, but luckily love does too.
