Something that I don't think I will ever come to understand about myself, is how no matter the relentless, tireless onslaught of negativity and discouraging treatment I am bombarded with by people around me- I continue to have this endless amount of love for humankind. There is so much to be thankful for, so much beauty to revel in. I care so much, I feel so much, I connect so easily to those few who open themselves up and reveal the slightest peek into who they are within; a glimpse at their soul. It's tiring and it exhausts every last bit of my being, but I don't regret it. I don't see myself as a fool, I'm rather amazed at how resilient my spirit is. It gives me hope that I can fill my life with others like me. Flooding the spaces between us with happiness and beauty. Positivity is contagious, and I am so thankful that I have held onto that belief despite those who try to dim the light that glows within me, within us all.
