Hey guys, read it. im sure you'll agree with one point or another. i think this is how most people feel. would have made it bigger and more direct but it's just something small i did in hopes it would be read out in assembly in school. :D got the idea from something else i started working on called How To Be Beautiful. dont ask... but keep an eye out for it.xoxox

i believe that everything happens for reason. people change so that you learn how to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. and sometimes things fall apart so better things can fall together.

often we don't realise what we've got until it's gone.sometimesits too late to say sorry, i was wrong."

Even to this day I find it truly amazing how few small-minded opinions can change the way you visualiseour whole world. Or even yourself; Sometimes the people around you too. There is so much hate in the world, it gathers around us, fills up our minds, grips us and makes us afraid for so many different reasons.

I still find it stupid that people expect us to change because the way they see us, on the outside.

Sometimes people can put others under so much pressure because they’re not this, or they’re not that, this person doesn’t like her, so therefore, I don’t. People are so discriminative; they don’t bother to fully get to know the person before they make a judgement. be who you want to be, not what others want to see. When I went around asking people why they called this one person names, and bullied and made fun of and spread rumours about them, they said because she looks weird, and she hangs around with that particular group. They had never spoken to the person they were laughing at, so they clearly had no idea that the reason she was quiet, and looked so miserable and depressed, was because her baby brother, who was only 4 and a half, had just died in a car crash last month, and everyday she would have to go home, knowing she may have to talk her mother out of suicide thoughts.

Some people say they don’t like that particular group because the way the dress, and the way they style their hair and the music they listen to is different to what they do.

It’s just the way THEY are. Get over it. Just because not everybody likes the same things, they automatically think their weird because their different to us. dont let the opinions of others consume you.

Yeah, they think the exact same thing.

you gotta stand for something, or fall for anything.

Who cares?

It’s all just judgemental rubbish.

you just have to try and live your life, not caring what they think, and shake off the drama and prove to them that your better than they think you are!

When some people go along in life, almost worry free, they don’t actually realise that the person they just said that thing to, the person they just made cry, the person who seems miserable every day, and gets bullied for it, might be going through the toughest time so far in their lives. For all you know, they could be dealing with hard, stressful problems at home that keep them up all night worrying about what is going to happen to them and the people around them in the future. They come to school, hoping that it is the one place they can get away from it all, chat with friends, and try to have fun and forget the saddening situations that they try to escape from. But then that one or two people just have to open their inconsiderate mouths, and tip that already unhappy stressed out person over the edge. That person you laughed at this morning could be watching their parents go through a divorce. That person you made fun of yesterday could be waiting to hear from the hospital to see if a family member will survive another day or not. That other person you spread that rumour aboutlast week, could be thinking about running away because they get abused by someone.

YOU DON’T KNOW! These people could be feeling completely unloved and excluded at the time you make fun of the person they are. My point is simple. You don’t know what that person is already going through, and that a few simple but hurtful words may have a bigger impact than you think. some are more sensitive than others, you should respect that.

So learn to keep your mouth shut and your opinions to yourself.

you have three choices in life; give in, give up, or give it your all.

The worst part is; nobody even realises this fact when it happens everyday.

People who are proud to be who they are, should be left alone and not have to tolerate all the crap they have to go through everyday, just because maybe they style their hair differently to “Everybody else” or perhaps wear different clothes to these so called “normal people”. We are all the same. We all hurt, we all care, and we all have different tastes. The people who you make fun of could turn around and say the exact same things to you. If you think; “because I’m this, I can get away with this. I can be stupid and heartless and make fun of that person for whom they are. I can hurt them and know they can’t hurt me back. Because I’m like “Everybody Else”. Think how they feel before you place your opinion. Remember that you don’t know what is going on in their lives, and you should just butt out and mind your own business, instead of interfering and making things worse for them, you should learn to leave them alone. Grow. Up.

being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. it means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections around you.

Everybody has so many flaws…

I look around me, and I don’t think they realise that in ten years time they are going to have a completely different frame of mind, and therefore, a better one. I say get started straight away. Right now. Why delay?

They will realise how childish and ridiculous they were being, and how much time they wasted when they could have grown up and got on with it.

From my perspective, they expect us to change from a few silly words they say to us when we batted them from our minds like flies the moment they were spoken. They think we care what they think of us. We may do, but then I, we, us, realise how stupid they are and be the civilised ones, hold back our tongues from saying what we really think of them, and think to ourselves; we all have flaws, and that is just one of theirs. One day, maybe they will move on and decide to criticize themselves instead of making others feel bad, because, lets be honest, someone is ALWAYS going to be, look, do, feel, have, and need things better than you. From talent to toys. Looks to boys. Habits to achievements…and everything else in life. You try your best, and as long as you do, you have achieved better than someone else that day who didn’t.

Life is a bubble. Let’s not burst it. Or anyone else’s.
