Can I be honest with you?
No one knows what they’re doing.
No one has a plan for every single thing in their life.
If they do? I can guarantee you something will lead them astray.
We live day by day, putting our feet in front of the other if only to make it to tomorrow.
Some days we make giant leaps in becoming the exact kind of human we want to be.
Be the human you needed when you were younger.
Our choices need to be selfless yet selfish. Don’t you ever do to someone what you wouldn’t want done to you.
Didn’t we all learn that in 5th grade?
Why is it so hard to get to know someone now-a-days?
Why are walls built so high?
How do we trust people anymore?
In a world filled with selfishness, who decides to be selfless?
It’s not a demand and it sure as hell isn’t easy.
It makes it a little bit easier on those around you,
but a little bit harder on yourself.
You see, when you decide to be selfless, you decide to do for others what people haven’t done for you.
You decide to care deeply about strangers just because their struggles are different and comparing battles never gave you strength.
You stop looking at yourself as an image and start to know yourself as a person.
Don’t we all just want to be seen as people?
Weren’t we told to never judge a book by its cover?
People see a future only by looking at the surface of someone and that’s why things fail.
People don’t care anymore.
They’re too involved in who’s on Facebook and who snapchatted them today.
But if we could just sit down and get to know someone face to face, I bet you’d see them a lot differently.
I bet you’d stop thinking about selfies and instagram captions and start wondering about their journey and how they became who they are today.
If we would all just stop for one second and really look at the world around us, I think we’d be surprised.
I want to see genuineness, kindness and compassion.
Because right now, when I do see that, it seems like an amazing ordeal and the truth is it shouldn’t be.
Holding the door for someone shouldn’t be out of the ordinary.
Complimenting at least one person a day shouldn’t be over the top, it should be a habit.
People need to care more about each other and lifting each other up.
It’s important to have the balance between selfishness and selflessness.
But the teeter totter is stuck.
We need more people to start walking to the other side.
