You know, I often think about how we tend to say to ourselves, "if one good thing happened in this world, why not this for me?" And I've even caught myself thinking it, thinking all I need is just this one thing and I'll be ok. But, truly isn't that the most selfish thing we can ask? Follow my logic here if you will:
If only my one good thing for me happens, what then happened to the 10 good things that could have happened for many other people? And what makes me think that I'm so much different from the rest of the world that I deserve something more than what others get?
A while back, a friend of mine said to me some things that really caught my brains attention. You see my selfish "one good thing for me" revolves around a personal issue and it is a want that i find hard to dispell sometimes. The friend was trying to tell me that I didn't need anyone else's affirmation that I was worth something- other than my own. And truthfully, down right out and out- I know that they are right.
But, like every other person out there wishing to find consolation on trying days, just once I'd like to know someone who understood why i do the things I do. Why others means so much to me and drives me to do as much as I can in one day, each day.
But I think that kind of understanding is a fairy tale living on another planet, because I'm not sure it exists here on Earth.
Thank you guys, my blogging friends, for taking the time to read this. I know I'm rambling on about my percieved problems, but I hope that your day went a hell of a lot better than mine. I hope that you were better at being respectful and non-angry at others who irritate you than I was today. But most of all, I hope that we each get better at thinking less of our own wants and desires and more about others needs.
