First off, I want to apologize to the readers and to myself. I started writing not only to develop my thoughts but also with the hope that this would encourage the empathetic part within all of us. I wanted to promote discussion on topics like depression, aging, prejudice and division, honesty, and love because that is what I believe people need to understand to live a fulfilling life. I look out and see a broken world weighed down by pain and apathy, and I desire to change it.
And for these last few months, I have been failing. My goal of a world where people strive to understand one another, one where people refuse to take advantage of others simply because they can, may be nothing more than a dream, but it will never have a chance if I, as well as others, do nothing to push it forward. I could make excuses about how I have been too preoccupied or overwhelmed lately, but the reality of it does not change. I may yet live a long time, but life is too short and too precious to waste it worrying that people will not see eye to eye with me. So I will write as it is currently the best way to start working towards my goal. I may change my mind in the future. I could very well be a different person a few years down the road. But either way, for now I will write.
