Appreciate the times when you are so happy and be thankful when you have all the things and people that fill your day with love and laughter, because one day something may happen that crushes and ruins what you hold dearest to your heart. You may not be greedy, or want much for yourself, just a happy life with family and friends. I think these are basic needs in all beings, but life can be unfair, and it’s arrogance and ignorance will cause you pain, no matter how humble, caring, and loving you may be.
One day you may wake up and find that no one is there for you, no one to stand by your side, no one to protect you from the pains of life, and no one to talk to. Kids are not the only ones that cry into their blankets in the middle of the night. I stay quiet and never say a word to anyone about how I feel, but yes I also cry in the middle of the night where there is no chance of anyone seeing me and I will go on encouraging others, wanting others to be happy, while inside I feel like I am slowly dying. Such is life, it goes on for those who don’t want it, and leaves those who want to keep it. If I could give the essence of my life to a dying person that wanted to live, I would do so gladly.
