Hey there guys! First of all I want to apologize for the lack of recent content lately, but life has just been pretty hectic. Whether it’s dealing with business, personal dramas or family duties, it’s all been happening! But I thought it was time to share some thoughts with you guys, and to give you all something to think about.
Friendships, family and relationships all have two things in common; Love and respect. But the thing that the majority of society seems to forget is that these two things shouldn’t just be limited to the people we care about, or those that care about us, they should be something that we treat every day with, and the people that we encounter in those days.
I can understand that everyone has different views of the world and everything that goes on in it, but the majority of people also seem to have the same negative view on the things that are wrong with the world, instead of a positive view of the things that are right.
I’m lucky, and I’ve been pretty lucky the majority of my life when it comes to friendship. I’ve encountered some of the loveliest people and they’ve all had an impact on my life in one way or another. Sure, things don’t always work out the way they were supposed to, and friendships end for one reason or another, but that doesn’t take anything away from the friendship that at one point did exist.
I’ve been blessed with some really incredible friends over the years, and I’m proud to say that the majority of them are still strong to this day. These people have been with me through everything, or they’ve came into my life at just the right time and supported me since that very day. Friendship is about believing in each other, it’s about supporting whatever crazy idea your friends come up with. It’s about the simple things like sharing a bag of Doritos while you pour your heart out to someone you know will understand exactly what you’re going through, and even if they don’t understand it completely, they’ll loan you their shoulder to cry on.
Family is like a life long friendship, where you just happen to share the same genes. It’s about supporting each other through the good and bad times, and no matter how that person may have upset you in the past, knowing that you would hand someones ass to them on a plate if they were to hurt a member of your family. It’s sticking up for someone even if you don’t quite think they’re in the right. It’s about being so pissed off at them that you just laugh and forget about it because they mess up the words they were trying to say.
Relationships? They’re the ones that take all of the above and mold it into something wonderful. There’s not a feeling like sharing so much of yourself with just one other person and knowing that you would lay down your life for them if the moment ever called for it. It’s about waking up and them being your first thought, unintentionally. It’s about them invading your dreams, even if it’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had. It’s about spending an hour in a store picking dessert because you’re too busy enjoying the time together. It’s about respecting each other so much, that even if you don’t agree on something, it doesn’t matter.
At the end of the day, the three things above boil down to the two things I mentioned before; Love and respect. These two things are what defines the rich and the poor. Because if you have love and respect, you can have the best life possible, even if you don’t have much of anything else.
So what if half of the world doesn’t agree with your views? Have you ever thought that the amount of hate and angst you feel towards them is a mutual feeling? Instead of everyone forcing their views down other peoples throats, maybe they should take a second to think about how it has no effect on their life if someone else doesn’t agree with them.
You live your own life, you make your own rules, and you define the person you are. Never let anyone take that away from you.
Many thanks for reading and much love,
