With everything going on in the world (COVID / BLM / Yemen / Human Rights Issues) I've started feeling really guilty lately. I came to the UK when I was a child for a better life and I've been incredibly lucky to have the life I have (mortgage free / stable job etc.) at such a young age but I have this pit in my stomach where I always feel guilty that doesn't seem to go away.
