I expect to pass through this world but once.

Any good thing, therefore,

that I can do
or any kindness
I can show
to any fellow human being
let me do it now.

Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

-Stephen Grellet.

I do not want to live in vain. I do not want to live a life that is meaningless and insignificant. I do not want to waste the time, money, and emotions of other people and myself. I do not want to feel useless, insecure, inferior and lonely.

I was not born to suffer forever. I was not born to feel oppressed, suppressed, depressed, frustrated and exhausted. I was born for greater things. I was born to lead a beautiful life. I was born to love and be loved.

And if I try, maybe, just maybe, with all the hope that is bursting within me, I can live my life to the fullest, and be truly content.

I will do all I can, with all that I am and with all that I have, with every breath I take and with every moment I am awake, whenever and wherever I am, to live a purposeful existence, and be a joy and not a burden unto others.

Everything will change when you decide to change your mindset and your attitude.

When you decide that


Why should you?

I will not let you put me down. I will not let you rob me of my self-confidence. I will not let you hurt me. I will not let you manipulate me. I will not let you affect me. I will not let you distract me from the things that really matter. I will not let your negativity get to me. I will not give up. I will not let myself go. I will not be a disappointment, a failure, to the people I love and myself. I will not listen to your lies.

Why should I?
