I've been thinking a lot lately about how often we see things online and we believe in them in theory, but still aren't able to put them into practice.
Like when we see a post in support of mental health awareness and think YES let's be more understanding to people with mental illness... But then don't realise that also means being more supportive to the quiet kid in class who's perceived as 'weird'. Or being less judgemental of the person we pass in the street talking aloud to themselves or simply acting a bit differently to everyone else.
Or like when we read quotes about how it's okay to set boundaries, cut ties with toxic people and protect yourself... But then we still judge someone's reasons for unfollowing that person, unfriending that person, or deciding not to speak to someone if it's detrimental to their wellbeing.
Or when we like a tweet about how much we should be uplifting and supporting each other, how we shouldn't judge so much... But we still listen to the gossip. We still make our assumptions. We still judge even though we're all so much more complex than what another person might say about us.
The point being: we're all imperfect af. I still do all the above, without even realising most of the time. But I think we can all try to be a bit more aware of it. Try to put the things we believe in theory into practice with the people in our lives. ACTUALLY be kinder. ACTUALLY support more. ACTUALLY judge less. At least that's what I'd like for us all to do. If you got this far (love u!) and have another example you wanna add, leave it below ⬇
