“You think he’s what makes the sun shine but darling ,he’s not. He’s what makes your eyes tear and your cuts bleed. He’s the thoughts in your head that rip you apart and I know you love him, but he’s killing you.”
Now I’m not discouraging anyone from falling in love and thinking about someone so highly, love them all you want. Go for it! Like seriously though; side note, don’t wait for the other person to make the move because you’ll be waiting forever. Take it from me. But on a serious note ,I think you should really pay attention to what is going on around you. Like honestly, there’s some books I read where the guy or girl is obviously cheating on the other person and the person is always so trusting.
Like no way, the signs are right in front of you but you cannot simply take a hint. There’s times when you should just open your eyes and stop being blind, no matter how much you care about a person.
I also know that you could never know because the person’s actions just seem so real. I understand that. But above all things you should always guard your heart. After all, it is the most fragile part of you and it’s so hard to piece something back together after it’s broken or torn apart. It could never be the same again.
So my day today started off on the wrong foot. Something happened and I was mad at everyone and everything. Horrible thoughts started to cloud my mind and I began to basically think I would feel better if I didn’t feel at all; if I wasn’t here on this earth (if you get my drift). But then I was like hold tf up, this is day 3 of 365, this is a new chapter a new year and I shouldn’t already be feeling like this. I actually should never feel like this period.
So I took out a piece of paper and decided to write down some goals. Now I’ve never been the one to do the whole ‘new year, new me’ ordeal or make new years resolutions but this year I decided, to hell with it, I’m going to try!
One of my goals is to not let what people say bring me down, I need to love and be myself. And I love that goal because I tend to take what people say to heart a lot and end up hurting myself and expanding my insecurities in the process.
But not this year bish. It’s a new year, new me.
Put a little love in your heart is an old 8Os or 90s song that we had to sing for one of my school choir concerts and it’s all hippie and stuff. Let’s just say I hated it. But thinking about it, it really is something our generation needs to learn to do; put a little love in our hearts.
These days people don’t care much about others and could step on your heart like they’re casually walking on grass but that isn’t right. There’s always so much more to a person and there’s no need to put them down for who they are.
Just take a moment to think about this alright? The boy you laugh at for crying, his mom– the only person he had left is gone. The girl you call fat is starving herself just to ‘fit in’. And that ‘nerd’ you’re always tripping in the hallway, she’s already abused enough at home.
So tell me please, why do we do these things to people, why do we bully them ? Is it simply because everyone is doing it or because you want to have ‘fun’ ? Well how would you feel if roles were reversed and it was you being pushed down the stairs? Horrible I’m sure. Just like they do.
If hurting someone makes you feel good about yourself the I feel sorry for you. There’s a thing called Human Rights and bullying is actually a violation of this. Human Rights means that everyone should be treated equally regardless of who they are or where they’ve come from. It’s when all humans should be respected since birth. And not just because we have to but because it’s the right thing to do!!
I’m pretty sure majority of us have been bullied but it doesn’t need to end there. If only we could come together and all love each other for what we truly are, the world could be a better place.
So let me challenge you all this week and hopefully you could apply it your daily lives. Give that boy a friend, that ‘nerd’ a hand, even just a single complement to that girl to make her smile and maybe put just a little bit of love in your heart.
Nowadays life is all about looking the best, getting the best Instagram photo and eyebrows. Oh my goodness the eyebrows, don’t get me started on those. I have no idea when that craze started,like seriously, when did I start paying so much attention to people’s eyebrows?! Like who tf should tell you how your eyebrows should look? You can shine bright just the way you are and if they don’t like it, who are they to judge you?
But you also play a big part, because if you stopped letting what people say and do affect you and tried giving half as much of the attention to let’s say, your education as you gave to them, you’d be so far right now. People’s wrong opinions shouldn’t phase you.
So the other night I was watching this movie and something caught my attention. It was this one thing one of the actresses mentioned. She said , “I’m a mess but I’m a beautiful mess. I’m His masterpiece. I make plenty of mistakes but I’m right where He wants me to be.”
I am His masterpiece. You are His masterpiece. Even if you have a unibrow, don’t worry about it. He’ll still love you.
