I recently entered adulthood…I mean it wasn’t that recent but I’m 22yrs old now so I’m still kinda new. It seems the older I get, the more innocence I lose. I start learning more and more horrible truths about this world and it’s inhabitants. I can sense the negativity every waking second nowadays. I ain’t innocent from doing some horrible things myself but at least I make a conscious effort to sway away from negativity. I treat people with kindness and I really try my best to not judge people so harshly. And yes work can suck but I actually try to make the best of my time at work, even have fun with it sometimes. Yet when I try to stay positive there always seems to be a handful of people who will always try to bring me down. I don’t understand why people gotta be so bitter about life. I have had some horrible days and some horrible treatment but I wont let that negativity consume me. I have forgiven all my 10 bullies and my once physically abusive father. I live happier because of my ability to forgive. Some of these bullies didn’t even deserve my forgiveness but I did it for me, so that I don’t become that bully someday or feel like a victim for the rest of my life. I know revenge and anger won’t make me feel better…those two concepts are empty and meaningless. We like to think we’re so advanced with all of our technology nowadays, upgrading our cars, phones, video games, tv’s, and houses but we neglect our ability to upgrade our human kindness. It is possible, I’ve met some pretty negative people who have changed their lives because they’ve learned to forgive and not carry so much hate in their hearts. Children may not know much about creating businesses, selling houses, fixing cars, or even speaking in many instances but they are a reminder of how gentle we humans can be and should be for the better future of mankind. Anyways I just wanted to speak my mind.
