It's hard being human, it really is. Especially when we're reminded everyday by other human beings. We're born with unlimited potential, a clean slate. We can only hope that who we're around during our infancy has a good outlook on life because we adopt a good portion of it before the age of 5.
But that's not what the reality is...
We're taught in life that you can't do what you want, that you have to do what's "practical" and you can't daydream. You can't have everything you want and oftentimes, you can't have anything you want. Riches are reserved for the select few that god handpicks and it's usually the people who are least deserving of it. We're raised to HATE the human race so we remain chained by our own ignorance. If this side of the world wins, creative thought will cease to exist. Nobody will care about each other and expect the whole world to bend over backwards to come to their rescue when things go wrong.
Why does it seem like the essence of malice, spite, and wrongdoing live a more glamorous life than the essence of kindness, virtue, and honor? Why are the trusting raised to be skeptical or else they're labeled as gullible? Why are the generous raised to be miserly or else they're labeled foolish? Why are the pure-hearted raised to become cold and unforgiving or else they're labeled a pushover, timid?
Who wants to hear that nonsense? Even when results tell us that the cynics are right, we don't have to buy into their stories. The crisis in Ukraine? The corrupt politicians? The tax rates? The schools and education system? Excuse me? Is this what we were born to continue? Perpetuate the idea that we're powerless to live out our lives as we see fit?
I don't buy that at all. Suicide rates are higher than ever because brilliant, young minds, as well as "seasoned veterans" of life are just fed up with being fed the same disheartening information over and over again. We don't want to hear that junk that comes into our ears anymore. Cynics will continue to be cynics. Liars will continue to be liars. But we do not have to continue to be losers. Save that for the cynics and the liars.
Who here had this feeling at least once in their lives? If you did, that's a good thing. It means you're not willing to settle for what people call "life" hands down to you. You are more powerful than your circumstances and don't ever let anyone tell you that you're not. And if they try to, don't listen to them.
The people who try and crush another person's dreams and aspirations are nothing but victims of their own crime. Someone else's opinion of what's possible doesn't have to become your reality.
Now let's go and make ourselves proud!
