Loved ones

I must say, I am incredibly grateful for PEOPLE. Friends, family, peers, strangers. Some teach me how to be; others how not to. I can take comfort in the realization that everyone I interact with teaches me a lesson. I have had the great pleasure and honor of several of my friends visiting in the recent past; some just for visits and others stuggling. I was able to laugh with them about our lives and the sheer ridiculousness of existence. I believe in them; whether or not they will be alright is not up to me. I am simply a fellow human being; with flaws myself. I do not belong on a pedestal; nor does any person alive. I have many people whom I am blessed to call friends; they teach me lessons about life and being human. Whether they know it or not; and those of you I don’t fill me with love.

I have many people whom I am blessed to call friends; they teach me lessons about life and being human. Whether they know it or not; and those of you I don’t fill me with love. I hold strong to the fact that, despite all of the evil and chaos in this world, there is much good. I do not disillusion myself to the madness that exists; I have experienced much of it myself, however, when it boils down to it, we are but layered upon by a lifetime of outside influences; we did no START OFF bad. Some individuals have complex issues and and are easily influenced by pessimism, but (as stated earlier) gratitude is a choice we make. One can simultaneously be depressed and grateful; the two are not exclusive of each other. The people in my life show me that life is like an yin yang; in everything good there is bad; in everything bad there is good.
