Very tiring week, emotionally, physically, and mentally.
Attended a friend’s funeral, my 2nd one so far, and realizations were flying left and right, lemme tell you. Here are a few of them.
Don’t leave any words unspoken. Tell your loved ones how much you appreciated them while they’re actually still around, cause life is too short, one day they’re still around but then the next they’re not, then you would have been a tad bit too late to tell them all you need to tell them, and shit like that hurts, and those feelings tend to stick for a while. If you haven’t told someone that you’re truly happy that they’re still around, please do so right now.
Here’s another one, you wanna know how you can be a good friend? Here’s how just stick around. Be there for the people who need you to be there, for both the good times and the not-so-good times. You don’t even have to say or do anything, cause sometimes your presence is enough. And if you’re lucky enough to find a friend like that, you should probably do your best to keep them, cause I’ve been told that those types of people don’t come very often.
The last one, give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Never judge a person on the second-hand gossip of other people. Form your own opinion of a person after you’ve actually gotten to know them better. Since your upbringing will certainly be different from there’s, meaning all the things that they’ve experienced growing up have made them into the person they are today, and you have no idea what does experiences are, so you have no right to judge.
At the end of the day, when all’s been said and done, just try to be a decent human being, and show respect and humility to everyone you come across, understand that being smarter, richer, or physically attractive doesn’t give you the right to look down on anybody, you’re no better than anybody else that you meet, and vise versa.
Okay, that’s the end of my rant, if you’ve picked something up, good, if not, I don’t particularly mind.
