Every generation need a regenerationCharles H. Spurgeon
Earlier today, I was reading one of my articles published in 2016, and as I trawled through the comments, I realised a common thread, everyone wanted to love someone and be loved. That’s just it.
We want to find our place in society, and we don’t want to be restricted or labelled. We want to be recognised as humans, respected for who we are, and acknowledged in the scheme of things. That, I think, is what we want.
However, we all know that things are not as simple as they seem, which makes me wonder why we overcomplicate things. Why do we look for approval? Why aren’t we satisfied with the way we are? We have this overarching desire to be appreciated, which is not bad, but we often cause ourselves grief and unnecessary harm trying to bow to peer pressure.
We often read stories of how teenagers commit crimes to show off to their friends, and that behaviour may have spilt over to their adult years.
The good news is we can change the trajectory of our lives. Just as the human liver can regenerate, I believe we can change the story of our lives.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, Change your attitude.Maya Angelou
There may be obstructions to changing bad attitudes, but with determination, we can do it. I’ll link this article to the ongoing UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. We can change the tide and regenerate our climate. There are still many naysayers who don’t believe in global warming, but it’s real.
We only have this planet as our home, and I believe we should protect it for future generations. It’s a matter of changing our mindsets and thinking of other people rather than ourselves, and before we know it, we’ll start making the right choices.
Change is constant, and I think we can start now. Whether you’re leaving an abusive relationship or changing self-destructive attitudes, change is always consistent.
We can regenerate, and therein lies the power of humans!
