Boris Johnson- unfortunately the only BJ in my life right now
Boris has continued to be slated since the pandemic began and although we have a few laughs at some of the videos, we are forgetting that he too is a human being. You’ll notice that he just had a child this week and hopefully this makes him seem more humane to the ones slating him.
We must practice Altruism, empathy and compassion when it comes to having a dislike or hatred for others. The decision may not be to your liking but can you imagine being in that position right now. He too is a husband, a son and a father and he didn't wake up today and intend for us all to suffer.
For anyone you might hold hatred for maybe a boss, an ex or maybe that bitch Sandra down the road that gives you a dirty look in the supermarket- I would like you to practise some compassion and try slipping into their mindset in order to help understand why they can act the way they do it will help ease your resistance.
I want to leave you with one powerful statement from a german soldier who has killed an enemy with his own hands, as he looked in his enemies pockets and stood over him he said;
‘You were only an idea to me before, an abstraction that lived in my mind and called forth its appropriate response. It was that abstraction I stabbed. But now, for the first time, I see you are a man like me. I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the same dying and the same agony- Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy?
