Life is Pain.

We come out of darkness into the light screaming, struggling for breath. Some of us even perish the same way. There is no way to get around it life is a painful experience. It’s heartbreaking, heart wrenching, nauseating, and just plain painful. Of course that’s only part of this wonderful and amazing gift that we call life.

Pain is just our way of experiencing moments that are difficult to get through. However these are the moments that decide what we will become, and our the moments that many will remember us for. Sometimes it’s hard to do the right thing when you’re in pain, and you see a easy way out. However there are many times where it’s better to suffer through certain moments.

Pain is based heavily on perspective, what’s painful to one may be a walk in a park for another. Personality, perception, belief are all very powerful objects in our psyche, sometimes after enduring pain we change to better be able to cope with certain struggles in life. Eventually no matter who you are pain will knock you down to your knees, and then push your face to the floor.

When that happens what you do then, is what is going to determine where you are going to be in life. Some people may try to help you up if you’re lucky. You’re the only one who can stand though, and what you do when you get to your feet is all up too you. Who are you going to be when that happens?

Are you going to let pain control you?
Are you going to let anger destroy you?

Pain can build strength, it helps you see weakness in yourself and others. What you do with that vision is up too you. Are you going to use that knowledge to use peoples weaknesses against them? Or are you going to use it to help build up those that have been hurt.

This world needs more people willing to help those who need it. What is sad is those that are in power do not care. Empathy for them seems to have been striped away. Millions suffer everyday in pain, screaming for help, and things could be changed for the better. Things do not have to be how they are. We are the masters of this universe.

Being a Better Person.

Everyday is a chance to be a better person. Every time you meet up with adversity is chance to be better. Sometimes it’s difficult, but great things in life always are. The three biggest things to me in being a good person, is love, compassion, and happiness. Love for others and yourself. The compassion to feel empathy for all life, and the love to help them. The happiness to give to others and to get through the difficult times.

Sometimes however it’s hard to find those things within yourself. Sometimes it’s because you’ve been hurt. Sometimes it’s because of depression. I just want to let you know if you feel that way, love, compassion, and happiness is all inside you. The key is inside your heart, and while it may be hard for some to unlock these things it’s possible for everyone.

All you have to do is put yourself out there, consciously take the time, and energy to imagine how others feel. Think about how you impact them. Think about the things in your life that you could do better for yourself and for those around you. Everyday begin to work on those things, talk to others about how they feel. Try to spend more time with your family and friends. Try to exercise more. Eat better. Find a job that helps support your ambition, and that makes you happy.

Success doesn’t happen instantly often. So don’t get discouraged if everything doesn’t instantly turn around. Just keep pushing and over time you will start to notice progressive changes in your life. Eventually after a bunch of small changes you will notice, you, your life, and the lives of those around you are significantly different. Love with your full heart, push forward everyday, positive thoughts build a positive future.

This is my life, day 8,701

Hoping I make just a few dollars today so I can go to the grocery store. Feel like i’m on the verge of actually making something of The Free World. I guess I just got to wait and see.
