LIFE is not about:
- KEEPING SCORE
- HOW MANY FRIENDS YOU HAVE
- HOW MANY PEOPLE CALL YOU
- HOW ACCEPTED / UNACCEPTED YOU ARE
- IF YOU HAVE PLANS THIS WEEKEND or IF YOU ARE ALONE
- WHO YOU ARE DATING, USE TO DATE, HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU HAVE DATED or IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN with ANYONE AT ALL
- WHO YOUR FAMILY IS or HOW MUCH MONEY THEY HAVE
- WHAT KIND OF CAR YOU DRIVE
- WHERE YOU ARE SENT TO SCHOOL
- HOW BEAUTIFUL or UGLY YOU ARE
- WHAT CLOTHES YOU WEAR or WHAT SHOES YOU HAVE ON
- WHAT KIND OF MUSIC YOU LISTEN TO
- IF YOUR HAIR is BLONDE, RED, BLACK, BROWN, ORANGE or GREEN
- IF YOUR SKIN IS TOO LIGHT or TOO DARK
- WHAT GRADES YOU GET, HOW SMART YOU ARE, HOW SMART EVERYONE THINKS YOU ARE or HOW SMART STANDARDIZED TESTS SAY YOU ARE
- IF THIS TEACHER LIKES YOU or IF THIS GUY/GIRL LIKES YOU
- WHAT CLUBS YOU ARE IN
- HOW GOOD YOU ARE AT "your" SPORT
LIFE is not about representing your whole being and seeing who will "ACCEPT YOU".
LIFE is all about:
- who you LOVE and who you HURT
- who you MAKE HAPPY or MAKE UNHAPPY purposefully
- KEEPING or BETRAYING TRUST
- FRIENDSHIP - as a SANCTITY or as a WEAPON
- what YOU SAY AND MEAN - maybe HEARTENING and maybe HURTFUL
- starting RUMORS and contributing to PETTY GOSSIPS
- what JUDGMENTS YOU PASS and WHY and WHO your JUDGMENTS ARE SPREAD TO
- who YOU HAVE IGNORED WITH FULL CONTROL AND INTENTION
- JEALOUSY, FEAR, PAIN, IGNORANCE and REVENGE
LIFE is all about CARRYING INNER LOVE and INNER HATE - letting them grow and spreading them.
Most of all,
LIFE is all about using YOUR LIFE to TOUCH OTHER PEOPLE'S HEARTS in such a way that could never occurred alone.
Only YOU CHOOSE the way THESE HEARTS are affected.
And those CHOICES are what LIFE IS ALL ABOUT...
