Ever since i came home from my missions trip there is just so much more that bothers me about our society. I can honestly say that i absolutely hate being home and i would much rather be in the village with the unpaved roads, hot weather, and the best part, the joyful souls of those of St. Margarets village. I just miss it so much. On the trip i learned so much about myself and went through a transformation, its extremely hard to be back and know that i need to let go of some habits and people and just move on especially when you don’t have people holding you accountable. i sont know theres just so many changes i would like to make that i need to begin taking action on
❝I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.
❝It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.
