Every day we are trying to figure out who we are, what we want, who we live for, who we love, why we love them, what our belief is… Every day is a struggle of decisions. Sometimes we do trial and errors, we make decisions that give a better result and sometimes we make decisions that lead to drastic conclusions.
Our life is our own, our choices are our own. We face things the way we know how to. We ask counsels and advices from people whom we look up to, but at the end of the day we are the one who decides what to do with our lives. It is our experiences that teaches us most things. It is our gut that helps us decide things.
We are all the same but different. We travel the same places, we eat the same food, we wear the same shit, we break hearts and we get ours broken. We make some happy, others sad. But the emotions, the feeling, the thoughts we have while we experience these things differ from others. The circumstances of our lives are different. The people who we crossed paths with are different. The teachings and the lessons we received were given by different people. The people we interact with varies from one person to another. Our family is already different from others and they are the ones who influences us the most.
I would like to believe that people live their lives trying to be better every day, that every decision they make, they do that because that is what they think would make them better than yesterday although sometimes when we do that, we end up hurting other people. I would like to believe that people do not intentionally hurt us. I would like to live a life understanding people more than judging them.
I do not like to impose on people when it comes to life’s values because what I have experienced, who I met, who I love, who matters to me are different than them, so what they will do, what they will decide are theirs to make… their decisions can never be better than mine, nor mine can be better than theirs. Our circumstances are different, our influences our different.
We decide based on our own values, our own experiences, our own beliefs. I do not think there will ever be a right or wrong in this matter. I like to believe that we are all just selfish human beings trying to get ourselves and the people that matters to us live a life we know is good… but there are boundaries and that is a different thing.
