Are you a Christian? A Jew? A Muslim? A Pagan? A Buddhist? Hindu? Agnostic? Atheist? Or anything else?
Do you stand on the side of fighting injustice? Do you love and support people of all minorities, ethnicities, whatever their faith, whatever their skin colour, their gender and attraction orientation, how they dress, and wherever in the world they are from?
Back in 2013, I wrote my views on a topic that people are typically either for or against. They're for it because they acknowledge that there needs to be some solution to the problem. But those who are against, many just fail to see the bigger issue that is the case in the real world.
It truly shocks me how people either don’t care about others struggling, or they simply are too scared to stand out from the crowd, and some will just laugh instead to make you struggle with life even more.
Self harm really just isn’t understood. Some people think we want to self harm, think we want to die, think we have no hope in us. Self harm is just like when you get the urge to lust, it’s just like when you get the urge to smoke (I don’t smoke but I understand what it’s like), or to have a drink/snack that you told yourself you aren’t going to have.
We all have scars, a history we cannot bear, but we need to put that behind us. And we all get judged by something that cannot be changed, but we need to just ignore those judges.We constantly feel we aren’t good enough, and we lose courage, and hope and faith in simply what the truth is. Others forever tear us down, even those that did it unintentionally and unknowingly, and it just hurts so so bad.
Today, (14th October 2013) one of my friends, he was talking about retaliating or something like that, I can’t remember, and he asked me something like why not retaliate? And I said “you know I’m against violence, and so are you”, and he said to me “don’t tell me you’re against violence when you remember what you did to your wrist”. This was in class too!
No matter who you are No matter what you do People always want something else from you You could be Steve Jobs, or you could be that poor boy down the road begging for mercy and people will always want something more from you, something else from you.
Don’t call anyone an attention seeker, whether they genuinely are or not. Is it your place to say? No matter how much someone seems like an attention seeker, what right do you have to call them that? Do you know their life? Do you know what THEY are going through?
Just because you may think that the joke you are pulling is funny, don’t assume others will find it funny. I’m not telling you to quit making jokes, but be careful as they might end up being insults. If someone doesn’t find your joke funny and gets upset from it, even if its a little silly joke don’t laugh at them. We all have a right to not find something funny, but we don’t have the right to make fun out of that person for getting upset about it.
