In The Midst of Tragedy Hope
Following on from my post yesterday, I have been giving some thought to why I became a therapist in the first place. I think, to put it simply, I wanted to make the world a better place by helping people. Whether that means help people be happier or more motivated, it really doesn’t matter, what does is that by people being who they want to be having a positive impact on the world around them.
Reflecting on the events of the past couple of days, one cannot help but reflect that it sometimes takes acts of barbarism to remind us of our humanity. Stories are now emerging about the heroic acts of some people at the MEN Arena who tried to save lives rather than take them. These unsung heroes truly make the world a better place. And what’s more, they give the rest of us hope.
Things have been a bit jaded of late. Brexit, Trump, the general election have all left a certain resigned unhappiness in many people. Whilst what happened at the MEN was an atrocity, it gives one hope that even in the midst of this tragedy there is hope for us all if we come together as people and put aside our differences for the greater good.
