As long as I live I will never give up on social justice issues. I do not have the luxury to not fight against racism, to not fight against homophobia, to not fight against sexism. The moment I stop going against these evils..the moment I give up hope.. the moment I just "stop thinking so much" and go with the flow will be the day I may as well just drop dead. I love myself way to much to ever do anything like that.
I believe that love is growth. Not only would me giving up on what I know is right hinder my capacity for growth but it would also force me to take steps backwards. Not standing up in the face of injustice is against my character & I am very big on integrity. I refuse to let anyone's hopelessness spillover onto me regardless who they are. idgaf

Like him ^ I will fight for what's right until the day that it changes.
Encouraging you to work with me, <3
