to love and believe

to be who we really are...

We live in a world that is sending very mixed messages of what it looks like to be a "man" and a "woman". All you have to do is look at the newest blockbuster "fifty shades of grey" to see how we are so far from the truth, and from a healthy and equal unity. Young people are growing up more confused, anxious, depressed and damaged than any other generation. Social media fuels the insecurities we have about ourselves that says we are not good enough, we're not attractive enough, skinny enough, happy enough and the unrealistic searching for that better "life". 

"What we look at matters! where we place our eyes and what we fill our minds with matters when in regards to joy, vitality, energy and life-force..." Matt Chandler 

These messages from Matt Chandler are so spot on and confronting, but incredibly important! Comparison is the thief of joy! I want better than the unrealistic, soul destroying rubbish that is stinking up our lives, and our ideals of who we truly are meant to be as "men" and "women"

Collective Shout​ challenges so much of this rubbish in our society.
