There are millions of people out there who are convinced that the world
is a rotten place and that life plain out SUCKS. Now, I know that there
are many people out there who suffer from depression, and I know what
that's like, as I have had a form of depression. I'm not talking about
people who are clincally depressed, though.
I'm talking about people who just let every single little thing get to them and almost CHOOSE to have a bad day, bad week, bad month, bad year. There is so much to appreciate in life, and we are here for such a short time...how can you be this way?!?!
It pisses me off to NO END when I see people take advantage of everything that they have and just don't care. It upsets me that there are so many people out there who take everything for granted and don't appreciate what they *do* have.
A lot of people complain that they have bad lives and all that...granted,
some people do, but a lot of people get all mopey and feel sorry for
themselves over NOTHING.
Or sometimes they DO have good reason to complain, but you know what? Not THAT much. Besides, there are TONS of other people out there who are experiencing the same problems as THEY are, and worse. But you know what? Life goes on. You live with it. You get over it. Whatever. You don't just sit there whining and moping and let your whole life just pass you by. It is SUCH a complete waste and utterly stupid.
Do you have any idea how much good stuff you're missing out on? And do you have any idea how many terminally ill people there are out there who would give anything to just be able to live a little longer? Don't take your life and waste it, it's the only one you have.
I love life. I love being alive. I try to enjoy every moment I can. And in case you're thinking otherwise, no, my life has NOT been all lovely lovely events one after the other. I have had plenty of hardship in my life, believe me. But instead of dwelling on it for years and using it as a base for my entire life, I choose to move on and enjoy what I can.
I will not let hardships define my whole life. There's no WAY I'm going to let that happen.
Look, even if you have some REALLY bad stuff going on in your life, it doesn't mean it's too late to change your life around, and it doesn't mean that your life will never be all right again. You can take control, you can get help.
And if things AREN'T that bad, then please realize it and start cheering up. You have reason to, believe me.
Don't believe me? E-mail me and we'll talk about it. ;)
