life has taught every single individual out there, a lesson. some are taught more than one. learning is hard, understanding is harder but its all worth it towards the end. you can only understand a certain perspective only when you yourself have witnessed or felt something similar. life isn't just about fun and happiness. every happiness is followed by sadness and pain and every pain is followed by happiness. its a two way process, a cycle in fact. we look at other people, for instance happy looking people and wish to have everything they have in order to gain all the happiness they receive; unfortunately that's where we all go wrong. when we wish to be like them, we also wish upon their sadness, the pain they carry. like its said; never judge a book by its cover, likewise never judge a human and their lifestyle by only looking at the outside glass, not knowing what may be inside. everyone at some point in their life pretends, nowadays more like, pretends to be happy. imagine how much effort it takes for an individual to pretend all day long about their happiness only to protect the ones they adore and care about. always remember that you're not alone. all you have to do is stand up straight and ask yourself if this is what you deserve. and you'll figure your answer out in about a couple of minutes, then we'll talk........
