Inspired by this statement which was flagged up by… someone in the RPG community? Sorry, I’ve lost who it was.
Anyway, here’s what I want to influence me going forwards.
- Leave the world a better place than when you arrived. The true measure of success is to have an impact on other people and to be missed when you’re gone.
- Do right by others as much as you can, and elevate others as much as possible.
- All lives matter, but right now it’s obvious that’s a belief not enough people hold.
- Love is love. Trans rights are Human Rights. Be an ally.
- Don’t abuse what power you have, find a way to use it for the benefit of everyone.
- I am a growing, changing (middle-aged) person, but I have as much life ahead of me as behind. I will look at new ideas and perspectives, potentially adopt them into my worldview, and forget outdated views.
