Life is the shortest thing you will ever experience, yet the longest thing you will ever do. Each individual goes about their own way of living life. Some strive to become rich and famous, while others would rather raise a family and live a simple life, and then there are those who claim to “not care” about their life, and do whatever they choose to disregarding the consequence it will have on them or their lives. One of the few things shared in common between these three groups is the search for acceptance. Acceptance is something we all crave. We go through life seeking the acceptance from others, whether it be the acceptance of family members, friends, or just random people we haven’t even met. It has become a way of life to become accepted by others, but let me ask you this, why? What does it matter if others like you or not? If others accept your lifestyle or not? No matter what you do, no matter how many people like you, there will always be those who disagree with/dislike you. So, again, what is the point of living your life seeking for acceptance if there will always be people who don’t like you? Someone once said ‘it would be a real shame if I were to reach my death bed, and realize that I have yet to truly live.’ So many people waste their lives trying to please others that they forget how to live for themselves. At the end of the day we will all end up 6 feet under so what’s the point? Look around you everything you have worked for, everything you have built, everything you have made yourself to be will disappear the same day you enter into the eternal sleep. The world you live in will end when you do, so why waste your life living for someone else other than yourself. There are two things guaranteed in life; taxes and death. Let me ask you something, say you spend your life trying to make someone else happy, what will happen when they die? Everything you did to try and please them will have been a waste of time. Now what? You’ve spent most of your life living for said person, and now you don’t have much time left to live for yourself. The average American lives to be around 70 years old. Each minute of every day that goes by is vital to what your life will turn out to be. So tell me, what will you do with your 36, 792, 000 minutes?
