When we do not have hope, we lack genuine courage. Courage with no hope has no meaning. A life believed to have no meaning lacks trust. Fear creates a failure to trust. Hurt comes from hurt feelings. Pain causes unpleasant emotion. Emotional deflection creates chaos. Communication becomes broken. Understanding turns into loneliness. Defensiveness bleeds into division. Urgency replaces clarity. Wounds become the gatekeeper of Truth. Our truth is what we want. Looking within ourselves is how we find it again.
Want. Think. Decide. Act.
