The Lighthouse


We don’t have to apologize for wearing our heart on our sleeve, for being compassionate, for wanting this world to be a better place. I know I never will.

But we also have to remember that there are people who are trapped in their own darkness. People who, know matter what you say or do, will see the negative or think you have a hidden agenda. We can’t force our light on them. They have to see it for themselves…

Remember, the lighthouse doesn’t go around looking for lost ships to guide in, it just stands there shining its light out onto the world.
