Think About It

People - Let's get the facts straight. In general, people are heartless. They're mean. They don't care. All we care about is ourselves and if we don't get what we want, then we get mad. We are all judging of others at sometime or another. If we see someone doing something that we think isn't normal, then we say stuff about them, and we don't even care if it hurts them.

That's life, but one person can make a difference. In order to make a difference, you have to be different. Be that person who takes a stand for what you believe in. If you see someone saying or doing something mean to someone, don't be afraid to do something about it. Make it your goal to do the best in everything. And if you fail, don't stay down, get back up and try again. You have family, friends, and people you don't even know who care about you and want you to succeed.

Make yourself somebody and someone. Don't let other people influence the way you want to live your life. Make the best out of everything, and achieve the impossible. Strive for the best. Work hard to get something because you like it, and don't be afraid to get it because you are scared about what others will think or say about it. Think about it.
