Those who get what they want are less disillusioned by life.
i dont care what people think but i think heart break is beautiful. that someone matters to you so much that when they are not there, with you, emotionally, phyically, pain can be caused. that someone out there means so much to you that you long for them when they hurt and part away from you.
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” - Mother Teresa
Doesnt matter what your religious backing is, you can change the last bit to ‘its between you and yourself’. I just thought it was something amazing to share,
Life is rather funny, theres always something new to learn from it. Endless suprises, good or bad, Endless wonders. Its funny. Its surprising. That even when you feel like you know everything, you really don’t.
Open Eyes. Open heart.
I guess everyone has fears, I’d probably say my greatest fear is not living life to its full extent. one more year and high school will be done, i cant came back again, three, four years down the line we’ll be done with uni, ten years down the line we will be thirty and twenty years after that we will be fifty, half a fucking century, looking back on the days when we were 17, on days like today, and we will probably look back and think that we knew nothing then,. how scary is it? that there’s more to learn, experience and see in the world. I guess the moral of the story is that opportunities that pass your way today may never cross paths with you again, that as corny as it sounds the whole philosophy of ‘living every day like its your last’ needs to be applied in order for you to live life to the full extent in which your capable of. everyone seems to base their dreams and ambitions on what they have been influenced by, by parents, friends, society, never fully taking into consideration what they would like to become. If you drop the armour, your insecurities, your worries, your flaws and whole heartedly picture your ideal self a year from now regardless of how impossible it is, just grasp onto the realisation that when people tell you you can become ‘whatever you want to become’ it is actually true. nothing is impossible, well, in reasonable context. Everyone has developed a bizzare ideal of what life values are, and what one should aspire to be, but sooner or later it will hit you that being true to ones self, and your on character is the only way to be honest with yourself. and being honest with yourself will help you identify what you want, which will help you identify what you need to achieve, which in the end will help you live life to its full extent. honesty is the best policy i would like to believe. but then again who practices what they preach?
Life isn’t about what happens to us. It’s about how we perceive what happens to us.
To change our lives, we must first change our minds.
Perhaps most of us do not come to a clear conclusion in the matter, but this does not mean we have no purpose, only that we do not recognize it or admit it or even choose it for ourselves. In the unhappiest case nature simply takes its course, which is a turbid meandering through the swamps of desire. If life means nothing then only pleasure is worthwhile; or if life has meaning and we cannot get at it then still only enjoyment matters — such is the view of brutes and some sophisticated philosophers. It slips into the unconscious by default when we hold no other, but we are reluctant to entertain it and will rather, if we think about it, take as our purpose support of family, search for beauty, improvement of society, fame, self-expression, development of talent, and so on. But it might be fair to say that apart from these or beneath these the fundamental purpose of many of us is the search for love, as pathetic as it sounds.
society’s so fucked. everyone’s so fucked. it used to be fun, having a good time with your friends, taking it easy. then you grow up, and you realise that what you thought you knew about everything you really don’t. all i want to do is have a good time with my friends, but everyone just bbm’s through every conversation. no one really talks anymore, you know how someone is through facebook and twitter. you go for a nice night out and everyone just wants to take pictures to put up this whole façade that they are having a great time.
as an individual i’ve come to realise the important of friendship and how much friendship means to me. i feel like the essence of friendship has been lost aswell as the essence of romance; because all anyone wants to do is go out and get ‘tap’ and be all adventurous. Theres no love anymore, simply selfish single hearts everywhere.
but i guess thats what growing up is. Realising the world isnt all roses and peaches and actually acknowledging that the world can be a cruel place.
