I wont be sad forever. Not forever. Because forever doesn't last. Despite what you think forever is. Because nothing, nothing lasts that long. No matter how bad you want it to, or had bad you don't. Said is, "happiness doesn't last forever". But what comes after? And does the after result, not last forever either? Is it just a crazy up and down wavy circle that changes everyday, even by a little bit. That's life. I think most people wish they were children again, because that reality of life doesn't exist as much as it does when you're grown. The teenage years are the worst. Why? It's because in those years is when you start to see things for what they really are. It's in those years that everything decides it's time to sink in. You have enough knowledge to know, that things suck. Nothing is perfect. But not all hope is lost. There will be things that will make you happy, make you wish you could live for eternity with that feeling. But there will be things that will make you wish the opposite. Make you wish that you didn't have to live with the hurt that you feel. Its about balance. I've started to realize. For now, what I believe is that the missing factor in most peoples lives is balance. Balance is that missing equation. When your down, it helps you to realize that you will be up again, and it'll help you realize that you had to be down, just so you could enjoy that up, so much more. They say, "absence makes the heart grow fonder". It might be a long wait. But all you have to do in the meantime is have hope. Have faith that day will come. And you'll be glad you didn't do that negative thing that you wanted to do.

Balance your life. With small things, you can achieve a better perspective of the world around you. Tolerate that person who gets on your nerves. Accept that you didn't get what some else got that you wanted, maybe you didn't get that thing, just because there is something better waiting for you in the distance. If you fill yourself with the negativity around you, no doubt it will consume you, bring you down to your lowest levels. Don't let it, it is hard, but at least try. Take that negative feeling and acknowledge it. Understand why it made you feel the way it did. Then let it go. Replace that negativity with positivity. All your doing is helping you feel better. That truly is important too. Knowing yourself, and helping you, it's not selfish. It is a necessity. To live, you must know who you are living as. Understand yourself before you try to understand something above, or below you. When you do, you might just begin to understand the world.
