Not for being the man you want me to be.
I am here. You are there. Someone you love is else where. Live and love for THEM. Live and love THROUGH them. We all as individuals are going through some rough patches in our life right now. Some not as crazier as others, because we all have different ways of handling the situations we are in as a human. That’s the beauty of it. We can NEVER tell anyone else anything different about ourselves because that is exactly who we are… OUR-SELF. Loving someone else starts by knowing how to love on your own.
Whether it be losing a loved one, the thought of almost losing a loved one, a disease has suddenly stricken one of your loved ones, or the thought of having no family at all. Whether it be years of trial and tribulation, years of wanting to be the change with in someone, or years of trying to be there for someone who refuses your help. Whether its the constant negativity that just continues to cross your path and just consume you alive or that one person who has such a tight grasp of your heart and you are just to blind and naive to let go and see the better for yourself. I just ask of you to do one simple thing right now….
Think about everything going on for you right now that just has you in a bind. Has you frustrated and ready to give up on the world. THINK about it. Now if you have too, LET IT ALL OUT. Cry. Let those tears build up and just flow right out of you. Let all of those evil and harmful emotions go. Let it hurt and let it consume you for just a couple minutes. You can do it. LET IT OUT.
NOW STOP! Just stop and breathe. Take a few minutes to pull yourself together. Now pay attention to how your body is feeling. Weak…bitter…fatigued…delicate. What you are feeling right now after crying, is the release of the amount of stress and anger you let your mind consume over your body. Why do we do this to ourselves? Because we love to feel good, but hate feeling the bad….so we hide it. We tend to believe that it will go away in due time and everything will just take care of its own. Wrong.
I did that myself for a very long time. For YEARS, i just dug a deeper and deeper cave with in myself that I was finding myself closing my own presence from society. All because of constant negativity, deaths, accusations, etc etc. I failed to realize that my will to live better for my son and for myself is all I will ever need to be a better person and to be an even stronger human.
All I am asking from everyone who reads this is to FIGHT. Fight your own thoughts, and control your own emotions. We have got to stop giving up on ourselves and hiding whats really there. It is ok to ask for help or for an ear to just listen. You never know if that ear that is listening is going through the EXACT same shit that you are. It may even help them just as much as it is helping you.
Just fight. Be strong for yourself, and be strong for all of those around you. At your weakest, a helping hand is all you would ever need to give hope. Make a change right now with in yourself, and become a helping hand to those around you who need it most.
Live for love. Love to Live.
