This is a continuation of my last post. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s the link.
Okay, I talked about how you should love yourself, which is something you totally should do. Now, I’m going to talk about how to love others. I’m not the greatest expert at this. I’m not a great person. I’ve hurt many people in my life and I regret it deeply. I try and be a good person but sometimes I find it hard and I fail numerous times. I probably shouldn’t be giving this kind of advice but I feel like it’s important for me and maybe it’ll be beneficial to you. Also warning: this is very mushy and touchy feely. I’m in a very sentimental mood.
What I never understood is why we insist on being rude and mean to each other. Why can’t we all be nice to each other and knit rainbows or something? The world would be a much better place. If we were nice to each other, we wouldn’t be mean to each other because we would be nice to each other. Get it? Good. Like I said in the last post, you go through a lot and you deserve to be loved so does other people. We all fight our battles daily. Life happens to everyone not just you. So why would you want to be an ass to someone when they might be having an already crap day? We have to acknowledge the fact that none of us are perfect and we all have broken parts. We have to stop thinking that everyone else is living a perfect life and you’re the only one who is having a hard time. We are all going through something. It might not be the same thing but it’s something. We should be there for each other. We, however, shouldn’t try to save them. Like I said before, we are all messed up in one way or another so who are we to save others? What makes us so much greater than them that we think we can save them? You aren’t better than them. We are all humans just trying to make it through this life. We are just trying to enjoy the things around us and endure the crap that is thrown our way from time to time. This is why it annoys me when people think they are better than other people. Who made you the Queen of England that you think you are any better than me? Just because you don’t have the same problems as me does not mean you are better than me. We should all just be there for one another. Instead of trying solve their problems, you should just be all there when they need you. Sometimes people just need someone to tell them that everything will eventually work itself out or someone who will sit there on the couch while they cry or someone who would bring over a bucket of ice cream or something else you like if you’re lactose intolerant or allergic to ice cream (I’m so sorry), cuddle up in a blanket with them on the couch and have a Friends marathon with you because Friends is the best cure for everything, I don’t care if you think different, it’s a scientific fact. We all just want someone to be there. We don’t want other solving our problems. We just want someone to remind us that even though we are having a problem, there are people in our lives that gives us the strength to fight through our problems. So treat people well. Treat people like you want to be treated. Be a good friend. Be a good person. Be good. Remember that we are all fighting something, we have demons, we are all carrying some kind of weight. All of us, not just you. Every single person on this planet. We all have problems and we are all messed up. We wear masks and paint what people want to see on our faces. We hide away parts of ourselves. We answer “fine” to your “How are you doing?” because we think no one wants to actually hear about how we are doing. Find people that you can tell them how you really feel. Keep them close. It’s not every day you find someone you feel comfortable enough to take off your mask. Be someone that someone feels comfortable enough to tell you how they are really doing. Be that someone that people feel proud to have in their lives. Be that person. Be the person that you want in your life. Believe in yourself. Believe in others. People will let you down but don’t let that get you down. People are bound to hurt you but don’t beat yourself up about it. Just be a good person and everything will work itself out. Be a good person and remember that people aren’t perfect and just because they hurt you does not make them a terrible person. Remember that you mess up sometimes too so try and understand other people’s mistakes before shoving onions down their throat. I don’t know why you would do that but that sounds extremely unpleasant. Be good. Be understanding. Be caring. Be there. As Gandhi said “Be the change you want to see in the world.” People might suck sometimes but they are all so beautiful in their own way. I truly believe that there is good in everyone. This doesn’t mean that everyone shows their good but it’s in there and if you’re good, they will be good back to you. Also never give up on someone you care about. That is one of the worst things that you could do to someone. It’s like telling them that they aren’t worth your time anymore, that you just don’t care enough to understand their troubles. How terrible would that feel. Being told that your problems are too much for someone that they just can’t deal with you anymore. That is absolutely heart breaking. Never give up on people that you love. Never. No matter how hard it gets sometimes, think about what it would be if someone left during your darkest hours. Think about someone who you love just walking out on your life and giving up on you because you’re “too much” to deal with. Fight for each other. Be good to one another. Be good ourselves. You are a beautiful human being and I believe that even if I don’t know you, you have a whole lot of good and wonderful in you. You have the capability to making others believe in themselves. Remember how amazing it was to be able to love yourself and believe in yourself. You can do that for someone else. You can give that kind of joy. Little acts of kindness go a very long way. Believe in yourself because you are a good enough person to help others. You are actually great. Remember that.
I like your shirt, btw. You have an impeccable taste in fashion. Wherever you go, I bet people are like “Damn, when did I walk into a fashion show?”
