Let me tell you a little about why I am no longer a cynic. It’s actually pretty simple.
I am not the judges who see corruption walk through their courtrooms. I am not the police or the prison guards who are in a constant state of fight/flight. I am not the women and men who fight the wars. I am not the journalists who investigate injustice. I am not the women who feel trapped. I am not the men who love the women who left. I am not the children who cannot leave.
I’m simply a girl. A woman who has loved and lost and left and fought.
I don’t fight anymore. I set down my weapons and my armor. I am just a girl, a human with the capacity for all the flaws and all the miracles that exist in the universe.
I’m a girl who believes that light and dark exist equally.
Love is real. And that’s enough for me.
I send love to all of those still fighting.
