Good People Have To Fight

I was trying to think of something witty to say about today. When in all actuality I am shrouded by uncertainty. How fortune finds some while it escapes others is a disheartening thought.

My fate has allowed the luxury of me being able to sustain myself in these moments of inconstant flux. I guess you could say I am, “transitioning” from one place in my life, that I’m familiar with, to another place that I am not so familiar with.

The transition is not causing me duress. It’s what awaits me at my destination that leaves me anxious, nervous, hesitant and a little exhilarated at the same time. Fortune has smiled upon me. Yet in these moments my thoughts turn to the less fortunate.

I think about people who can’t find work.

How life for many went from just getting by to now just surviving.

Hope it seems escapes the people who need it most.

Life for many is a constant fight. I would like to express my hopes for those who have to fight to keep the lights on. For those who fight to feed their children. For those who live in uncertainty day to day, week after week, month to month and year to year.

My heart goes out to you. It is my fervent hope that justice is served to those who’s hearts are strong and decent and kind but have to dig deep and do what they must.

The hearts of good people have to be fierce at times. The hearts of good people must be strong and steadfast with fortitude that many people lack.

    I work for a non profit, & I see these people you refer to every single day. I find myself having to keep my hands out of my pockets. I could literally go broke just keeping people’s electric on! It’s so heart breaking seeing so many people in poverty! I am reminded every day why I need to be grateful for everything I have! I have actually come home from work & hugged my hot water heater! Lol. I’ve shed so many tears for so many people, but I also have celebrated many successes! Some of my clients like to give me credit, but I refuse to take it, they are the ones who fought to better themselves, I just held their hand along the way. You’re absolutely right, my friend, good people do have to fight!

    1. I admire you for your work my friend! I hope you don’t get too disheartened. It is a tragedy that people who deserve the most have the hardest time achieving stability financially. I’m glad they have people like you to help them along the way. You are a positive person and you have a kind heart. The world unfortunately is void of kindnesses at times but people like yourself are invaluable because not too many people give a damn.

        I’ve been promoted to management, so I don’t deal too much with one on one clients anymore, which is probably best for my soft heart, because it has overwhelmed me when I’m not careful. I suppose it still does. I’m not sure what it is about me, but people feel comfortable pouring their hearts out. I suppose they just need someone to talk to, & I don’t mind listening. Thank you for your kind words. I’m always left wishing there was more I could do.
