It’s Fab Friday where we give self love a little thought. Today, I’m thinking about why so many people out there aren’t registering to vote. I am willing to say that amongst other factors, one is they are low on self love.
People who respect and love themselves also respect and love others, such as their children, family, and friends. They want what is best for themselves and those around them. They understand that communication is a positive thing and by voting, one is essentially communicating on a grand scale.
Don’t like either of the top two candidates? Did you check out what the other parties stand for? If so, a vote in that direction isn’t pointless even though they won’t win. It’s still communication. When the results are in, the country is going to report on how voting went. People will feel united to those anonymous fellow citizens who voted like them and they may feel encouraged or inspired. Everyone else will ponder the thought process of neighbors who for some reason, decided the way they did. It’s never a bad thing to ponder heavy issues from a different perspective.
I’m not saying who to vote for or who I’m voting for. If you understand the importance of voting and communicating in this way and you don’t feel like voting, then perhaps you don’t value yourself enough.
Frankly, I care to find out where others’ heads are. Their thinking matters. Mine matters. Yours matters. Consider registering soon before the deadline of the 15th if you haven’t already. Do it because you care what happens to you and you care what message you’re projecting.
Actions never stop once we’ve done them. They go on and on, moving and changing things in their wake. Whether that change is mostly positive or negative is up to us.
