“if I turn my back on you
you might can see everything I`m carrying”

Something I`ve put on my wall.
It`s easy to think that being kind and soft are two not that powerful characteristics, especially when most people take them for granted. When the world can be hard and cold. But honey, “be like water, flowing so beautifully and effortlessly, washing away all that is bad.” Be soft but strong, and you`ll be the one still standing.
Two days ago I was at this event about human rights. In the end the audience was asked what we should do, to maintain the human rights and work harder to follow them. I thought I`d share what I (ca.) said, because I believe it`s important:
I think it`s important that we are there for each other and see each other. We can`t allow to tell ourselves that other people`s problems are not our problems, because if we`re not going to help each other, who are?”
fear can keep you safe
and at the same time
kill off parts of you
that are most alive.
