It doesn’t matter if you voted remain or leave, what has become apparent to me is that we are on the brink of change, and rather than join together to see what we can do as a nation, we have become strongly divided – to the point where I have seen disgraceful bullying from both sides condemning those for using their right to vote.
What we have all forgotten is that as a nation we can make any decision – even if not our own – a better one, by taking part in the conversation and not just condemning the decision.
Like anything political, unfortunately this referendum has brought out the worst in all of us.
The media have used scare tactics rather than cold hard facts to educate the nation, politicians have used it only to further their own careers rather than the future of our nation, and we have all become like squabbling children at the result leading to unsolicited trolling and vicious personal slanders.
Rather than fighting over it, we should be coming up with solutions.
Personally, right now I feel disappointed by all those who have felt the need to be cruel and judgemental about either side, because at least they went out and voted in the first place. Who are any of us to judge another person’s decision on how they voted?
As we are about to embark on a monumental journey, lets hope that we can all put the same effort into finding a resolution as most people have into attacking others for their choices.
Because it doesn’t matter which way we go, as a nation, we are better when we’re together.
