    There are two great days in a person’s life. The day they are born & the day they discover why. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.

    I think I’m done trying to make things come to me
    If they’re supposed to, they will and it be what it will be
    I realize I can’t force things. I’ve hurt myself more dedicating myself to things and people that aren’t, nor ever will be mine
    So I no longer give it the energy, there loss not mine
    And it’s not that I just give up because I’m feeling weak
    I feel strong as ever but this is acceptance, not defeat.
    So today I forgive you and I let you go
    Cause wishing and hoping will never make it so
    And I do it with a smile and a type of joy that’s set me free
    For I found someone else, better to love and feel in love with… me
    And falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible
    And that puts me at peace and make me more loveable
    When before I was untouchable
    On the brink of becoming combustible
    Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living
    All the things I’ve been holding on to that I should have been giving
    So I cleaned out this box where letters were stored in
    So I can make new memories and have a place to put them in
    And I move forward before it’s too late
    Cause I’m a hell of a man, and great to date
    And today I’m smiling because the possibilities are endless
    And I feel the love of my friends when I thought I was friendless
    So I depend-less
    On others and more on myself
    But with the help and support of God, friends and no one else
    So never be afraid to try something new remember, amateurs built the ark
    Professionals built the Titanic while babies are made sometimes in the dark
    So I forgive you because there is more to life
    And God removed you to make room for a better wife…

    Sometimes, we’re too into the moment to look at the big picture. We fail to see things in perspective because we’re too absorbed in what’s taking place at that very instance. The thing is we should face reality. Find ourselves from being lost in the moment and think about everything the way it is. Because sometimes being realistic can save us from pain and disappointment.

    coey - One great injustice to self is to overestimate other people's opinion of who we are while we at the same time underestimate our own. For real, glad you listened to your own voice. Namyh
