So much happens in my life. I've met so many people,
I've made numerous new friends, lost some friends,
remade old friendships, found new dreams,
let go of some old ones, got happy, got sad,
got ecstatic, got shy, got burned,
I feel sad for a lot of people.
Most people don’t realize when they say something,
they’re mentioning a lot more than they realize.
I was taught to speak good about people,
to forgive people for their faults.
With the way many people behave nowadays,
I’m wondering if this is still instilled into kids anymore.
There’s an old saying, “It takes one to know one.”
Most people use it as a defensive phrase
when they are being commented on
negatively by others.
They just use it to defend and
attack at the same time
but most people, though,
do not comprehend the whole truth
of this statement.
There’s another saying ,
“If you’ve got nothing nice to say,
don’t say anything.”
This is a saying that I have personally
tried to adopt into my life.
Life really changed, in a good way,
for me when I first started putting this into practice.
It forced me to notice and say all the good things
in other people.
I've made a discovery.
I finally understand how and why
certain people don't or unable to think.
The funny thing is that they think that
they're thinking but they're not.
I've come to realise that most people,
when it comes to using their brain,
are emotion driven.
They let their emotions dictate what they think.
And then what they think produces
more emotions which in turn
makes them think about other things
that causes them to be more emotional.
Please don't misunderstand
and think that I think I'm so great or what.
It was just a very eye opening discovery for me.
It's helped me be more accepting of people
when I see them do stupid things.
It also helps me catch myself too.
Although I am glad that I've written something down,
I feel reluctant to actually post this.
