You wake up every single day wondering what you're living for. You are at a crossroads where you feel like everything is falling apart and you can't seem to stop it. You look in the mirror but you don't recognize the person starting back at you.
It's your face. It's your eyes. Your hair. Your nose. Yet in a weird way, it's not you at all. It's only a shadow of the person you used to me. And so this is my message to you.
We all have things going on in our lives.. Maybe the person you love, doesn't love you back. Maybe you're stuck at a job that you hate. Maybe you heard a rumor about yourself that isn't true. Maybe there are people who think they have right to input on your life. Maybe you feel like you're watching your life fall apart like you're an outsider. You see all these things happen in your life, and you compare that to other people's lives, and maybe that makes you feel like a failure. Maybe you look in on other people's lives thinking that they have it all because maybe the good parts of their life is the only part that you're able to see.
I promise you though, that every single human that is walking this earth is fighting a battle that you know nothing about, and that is why it's so very important to be good to other people. And the thing is, that people can be very mean. People can be hateful. People can betray you. People can leave you feeling defeat. People can kick you while you're down. But I think that a lot of times what these other people don't realize is that as much as they look down on you, and as mean as they may be to you, it NEVER compares to the way we are mean to ourselves.
I think as humans we get this hatred for ourselves based on the way other people treat us. I think that we start to become depressed and hate the person we see in the mirror because of the awful ways that people kick us while we are down. But I heard this quote once from someone brilliant, and I think it applies to this topic very well. "You are not the opinion of someone who doesn't know you." And that's true.
Never in your life let the people who are bringing you down think they know you. Don't let them make you feel like a failure just because you're not where you want to be. Don't let them think that they know anything about your life just because they hear things said from other people. Do not let someone make you feel like damaged goods just because they think they're entitled to an opinion about your life. They're not. So do not ever let anyone make you feel less than you are. Do not ever the someone who doesn't know you judge you. Do not ever let people who don't know your life belittle you.
You know, as humans, we live a life full of regrets. We regret our actions. Or maybe we regret hurting someone we didn't mean to hurt. We ALWAYS make mistakes and even if years have passed we will always look back on that mistake and ask yourself, "Why did I do that?" But the thing you have to remember is that just because we make mistakes, that doesn't make us a bad person. It means that you're human. Making mistakes is apart of being alive. It's Humanity. But you can move on from it. You can get better. You can be better.
But you want to know what you should never regret? Making a decision that makes you happy. Never regret being there for someone who hurt you. Never regret the time that you let someone in even though they left you. Never regret staying true to yourself, even if people have a negative opinion.
People are so quick to judge you for the mistakes you make, but let's be real, mistakes shape us into the people we become. Without mistakes, we wouldn't grow. Without mistakes we wouldn't learn. They benefit us just as much as they hurt us. People making mistakes is never going to be over. We are flawed, that's humanity, but making a mistake does NOT make you a bad person. It DOES not make you damaged. It makes you better. It makes you smarter. DO NOT let ANYONE think they have a right to judge you. We are all humans and we have ALL sinned. Don't listen to the rumors or the lies, just live your life and do the best we can. Eventually, we'll get better instead of biter.
I think the people who tend to see the good in everything. The people who give more they take. The people who care without thinking. The People who tend to be sensitive are the best type of people. Why? Because they do things without ever expecting anything in return. They never stop believing they'll get their happily ever after even if they've been hurt a million times.
So, that's my message of you. Never give up on your life, or the things you can accomplish just because people can be mean. Be better. Love with all your heart. Make mistakes, but learn from them. And ALWAYS stay true to yourself. YOU ARE WORTH THE FIGHT.
