There are those who want to see and those who do not want to see, no matter how much evidence they are given, and on any subject. My friend my sister, let’s not waste our precious energy trying to awaken people who don’t want to see. Thank you to my friend Marie-Laëtitia on instagram (in French) for sharing a great dose of serenity in her stories on IG recently. It comforted me to hear that it took everything to make a world anyway. Each person has their own personal path.
I am well aware that some people cannot see because they cannot imagine evil, even absolute evil. I too thought that absolute evil was far from me, it was embodied by the dictators of history for example. Well, I wasn’t naïve enough to believe that people in high places had integrity, no corruption and wanted to protect the people. But I couldn’t see the evil that was right in front of my eyes.
Absolute evil entered my life through a loophole: my lack of self-confidence. It took the form of a toxic and dangerous relationship. This atrocious experience forced me to realize the human cruelty that I refused to see. He proved to me that the police and the courts do not protect me and worse, do not protect my children.
Little by little, I opened my eyes to a more subtle shade of evil: the culture of rape. Confronted with the culture of rape the first time, I was left speechless. Today, through accounts like Without Patriarchy (in French), I think I could identify a behavior or remark that belong to rape culture and respond to it.
Social networks have so many flaws so I am happy to point out when they have qualities and concretely help me feel better in my life.
And you my friend my sister? What are the social media accounts that make you move in the right direction, evolve and grow?
