There are external forces at play, all the time.
We all have different sets of privilege and power.
Nevertheless, I strongly believe the choices we make are still profoundly impactful on the outcomes of where we end up and where we are headed.
Being able to make good choices is a skill, one that requires introspection and a sense of philosophy.
Positive energy that we spread can result in positive outcomes.
But the same goes for negative, and maybe negative energy spreads easier. It certainly feels that way at times.
At this point I share my concern for the conflict in Northern Ireland. The Good Friday Agreement was a much needed solution to a deeply rooted and complex problem. The solutions that were made all were put into threat when Brexit happened, something that kept the negotiations going for years.
And when lies are spread and promises broken, serious consequences can happen, and those responsible can’t deny that they were warned about this.
I sincerely hope that there is a peaceful resolve.
