You don’t know this is about you and I’d like to keep it that way. But you are an incredible human being. And if I could, I would take all of your burdens and put them on myself in a heartbeat.
I just can’t please you, can I? That’s alright, I have all I need.
that there are only a handful of people out there like me. People that have appreciation for every moment they take in, that wholeheartedly give their all to the world around them. And to be completely honest, it’s very disappointing to me when I come across someone who fails to look deeper, who fails to take the time to understand the people they’re surrounded by. If you think about it, who was the last person to hurt you? Who last made you upset, caused you to shed a tear? I’m sure anyone reading this can think of someone immediately, and if asked, could go on for hours elaborating. We’re all experts at pointing fingers. Too often I see accusations placed without second thoughts. We’re all in this constant battle with ourselves but not many of us stop and look around to see who’s crying out for help. Sometimes actions are written off and thought of as cruel before judged. Everyone I know is fighting something inside. We’re all trying to live and let live, but the latter doesn’t always come easy. Nothing worth living for in this world comes easy, yet we fight each other when we’ve already grown tired from the war in our own minds. We’re becoming a counterproductive race with hardly any awareness of it. The point I’d like to get across in this is simple - it hardly takes any effort to show compassion to those around you. Reach out and do something good for someone just for the hell of doing it. Break the chain of the hurt, the pain, and the loss that so many of us are walking through. God knows I’ve been hurt in my life. I’ve been cheated on countless times, lied to, forgotten about, and thrown around like a fucking rag doll by almost everyone I love. But how many times have any of you seen me without a smile on my face? As cliche as it sounds, I do not give up. I haven’t given up on a single person in my life. In the sincerest form of the word, I have faith. I have faith in the good of people and in humanity. And you know what? It’s done me right time and time again. I’m proud of who I am. I’m proud to say that the words that come from my mouth are always true. I’m proud to say that the look in my eyes will never deceive you. I’m proud that I’ve grown an outlook on life like the one that I have.
Life is an extraordinary thing, but it’s much simpler than it’s made out to be. Shit, I’m just thankful every morning that I wake up. Step back from your problems and appreciate what you have, make the effort to do good in your world. After all, it is your world. What do you want to make of it?
Until I’m hurting again. I know it’s coming. And that’s the hardest part
