A Little Love

Put a little love in your heart is an old 8Os or 90s song that we had to sing for one of my school choir concerts and it’s all hippie and stuff. Let’s just say I hated it. But thinking about it, it really is something our generation needs to learn to do; put a little love in our hearts.

These days people don’t care much about others and could step on your heart like they’re casually walking on grass but that isn’t right. There’s always so much more to a person and there’s no need to put them down for who they are.

Just take a moment to think about this alright? The boy you laugh at for crying, his mom– the only person he had left is gone. The girl you call fat is starving herself just to ‘fit in’. And that ‘nerd’ you’re always tripping in the hallway, she’s already abused enough at home.

So tell me please, why do we do these things to people, why do we bully them ? Is it simply because everyone is doing it or because you want to have ‘fun’ ? Well how would you feel if roles were reversed and it was you being pushed down the stairs? Horrible I’m sure. Just like they do.

If hurting someone makes you feel good about yourself the I feel sorry for you. There’s a thing called Human Rights and bullying is actually a violation of this. Human Rights means that everyone should be treated equally regardless of who they are or where they’ve come from. It’s when all humans should be respected since birth. And not just because we have to but because it’s the right thing to do!!

I’m pretty sure majority of us have been bullied but it doesn’t need to end there. If only we could come together and all love each other for what we truly are, the world could be a better place.

So let me challenge you all this week and hopefully you could apply it your daily lives. Give that boy a friend, that ‘nerd’ a hand, even just a single complement to that girl to make her smile and maybe put just a little bit of love in your heart.

Nowadays life is all about looking the best, getting the best Instagram photo and eyebrows. Oh my goodness the eyebrows, don’t get me started on those. I have no idea when that craze started,like seriously, when did I start paying so much attention to people’s eyebrows?! Like who tf should tell you how your eyebrows should look? You can shine bright just the way you are and if they don’t like it, who are they to judge you?

But you also play a big part, because if you stopped letting what people say and do affect you and tried giving half as much of the attention to your education as you gave to them, you’d be so far right now. People’s wrong opinions shouldn’t phase you.

So the other night I was watching this movie and something caught my attention. It was this one thing one of the actresses mentioned. She said , “I’m a mess but I’m a beautiful mess. I’m His masterpiece. I make plenty of mistakes but I’m right where He wants me to be.”

I am His masterpiece. You are His masterpiece. Even if you have a unibrow, don’t worry about it. He’ll still love you.
