I ponder this contradiction often
Fight for what you believe in
Or let it go?
If it causes us pain, should we not try to change it?
Or is it best to walk away?
By walking away, are we just accepting that this issue won’t change?
Does that make us weak?
Or are we stronger?
Are we giving in to the pain, with the simple statement “it’s not worth the hassle?”
But is it really not worth the hassle?
Does you pain not deserve a voice?
Or can you live contently not being vocal?
Do we as a society, or as an individual need to stop and say,
“This is not okay, I will not let you treat us in this way”
Or does the sentence look more like,
“It’s just the way it is”
We have to choose our battles wisely
But I think society has a ‘quick fix’, or ‘sweep it under the rug’ outlook on a lot of confrontational topics and opinions.
I ponder this often.
Sometimes both solutions are a double edge sword,
but I hope you never become numb to your pain or your voice
