Every story is a sad one. And although you may never see that punk ass teenager in the store again, nor will you ever pass by the cute little old lady at the diner, make sure you do something that might make their days a little more bearable. Even if it’s something as small as a smile, it’s one more smile than the stranger got before. Who knows? Your act of kindness might save the future president, or the first doctor to discover the cure for cancer.
If your thoughts are insulting, why the fuck would you voice them?

When you glance at yourself in the mirror, do you see who you really are? Do you see the components that make you, and the components that don’t? Your smile, is it from years of contentment with your life or years of putting up with it? Your eyes, are the bags there because of late night studying or constant late night thinking? Your posture, tall because of confidence and happiness within yourself, or just because you’re tired of being in a slump? Maybe you think that by fooling others, you can fool your own mind. Maybe it has already gotten to a point where you believe yourself. You ARE the person you see in the mirror. But you’re only fooling yourself. You’re not happy. You don’t know what you want anymore. It’s time to face the truth. It’s okay to not be okay. Who are you trying to fool?
It’s sad to think that I have the ability to achieve so much more than what I’m willing to do. To taste life’s treats, I must sail away from the safe harbor into the vast and dark unknowns of what lies ahead. Let’s hope this journey is worth it.
What good is it if everything was handed to a person on a silver platter? Without time, effort, and adversity, success is merely an illusion. The struggle emphasizes one’s ability to grow as a person. To struggle is to be a better and stronger person. Reaping the rewards of sweat and tears is much more fulfilling than the easy way out. Remember that.
