Love will always trump hate. We tear one another apart for fun. We belittle people because it’s easier than praising them. We torment people to make ourselves feel better. We choose not to listen because listening could mean having to care for someone other than ourselves. We think it’s in our wiring to be selfish and spiteful but it’s not. It takes so little effort to just be nice to someone, to genuinely care for them. It can be such a rewarding feeling to care for and acknowledge other people’s greatness. No matter what anyone says, the best you’re ever going to feel is when you shine a light into someone else’s life. Not when you’re hating on them or trying to stoop them down to your level but when you’re encouraging others, when you’re making others feel good about themselves. Hatred has only ever brought destruction, pain and jealousy.
I cannot understand those who ignore others and look straight through them because they think they are better than everyone, as if they have a higher stand compared to the rest of us. I hate to come crashing down on this little pedestal you’ve made for yourself but ultimately we’re all equal when we’re dead so why live a life where people avoid you and don’t like you because of the way you present yourself? When you walk around being nasty and hateful to others you are only really hurting yourself. Your actions are always a reflection of yourself over anyone else. No matter what someone has or does do to you, you have a choice to how you react to it. Others can not define you who are, only you have that power. Be someone that others look forward to seeing, be the person that people enjoy being around and enjoy greeting. Don’t walk around thinking that you’re better than everyone because you have more money than others or because you think that you’re better looking than them. That will come right back to haunt you. Reflect on how you approach others and life in general. Be the best you that you possibly can be, and trust me, it’s a whole lot easier than you think.
