My biggest fear in life is to have to depend on other people for my own happiness. I do not like depending on people, because people leave. All the time. And because, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself, and that has to be enough. You know, sometimes I think about all that I’ve gone through and things that nobody knows about. These things have made me, me, and I get sad thinking that nobody will ever know about all these things. It’s impossible to share every single experience, memory, and lesson with people, but being content in knowing how these things have made me who I am, just might be the best thing about me.
So let me ask you a question:
Do you like who you are at the end of the day?
Because people leave. Because people suck. Because nobody is by your side forever. There will come a time when you will be alone. And you’ll need to be content with who you are as a human being.
What impact did you make on those around you?
What will you be known for?
How has your presence in their lives impacted yourself and those around you?
Have you learned from all the mistakes you made and tried your hardest to make it all right?
At the end of the day, life is about being happy being who you are. I don’t go by or change my attitude based on what people say. I would rather be myself and let people accept me for who I am than be someone who I’m not for other people’s approval. The position is just a position, a title is just a title, and those things come and go. But it’s really your essence and your values that are important.
Try taking a look at yourself, your morals, your values, the things and the people you cherish most. Do those you cherish know how you feel about them? Are you content with the way you are living your life?
These are the things I ask myself on a daily basis to bring me back to the person who I want to be. Be a good person, treat others right, and do the right thing.
We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.
