Stop The Great Divide

Stop The Great Divide by Charlie "If you pay any attention to the news or are on social media, it is so divisive. It plays at your emotions. It wants to make you turn against each other. That's how these things get money ultimately. I just wanted to share a quick thought - don't forget that we're all human.

Love to all!"

I thought I'd share this because as a person, I want other people to know that it's okay to struggle or to not feel okay and that things will always get better. There is no shame or reason to self-judge because you are...

Show Some Love

Show Some Love by Anonymous Human "Love is complicated. I think we all want to be loved and that's ultimately something that makes us human. But being a human is more that just receiving love from others. It's also about giving love to those around you, showing love to those around you, and most importantly, giving and showing love to yourself. Ultimately this love creates a more connected environment. As your average person, I've got tons of insecurities, worries, and fears. Let's just say I'm far from "perfect." But one thing I'm certain of is that love triumphs over all of the other bullshit. I think we all have love in our heart. Sometimes it's been stripped from us due...
