Life does carry a lot of b.s. with it, and we all know what that b.s. could be, people breaking promises, things not going as planned, we fail ourselves, we fail others, and sometimes we let life get the best of us instead of making the best out of life. But one thing we can never forget is to look beyond that, look beyond the hurt that someone caused you, look beyond the traffic that caused you to be late for work, there is beauty in all of it. It may take years or even a lifetime to acquire a true unconditional love for life. But once you do that, everything will be so much clearer. You will begin to understand that life is not perfect, you are not perfect (no matter what your narcissism says), and our fellow peers and family members are not perfect. Be quick to give others the benefit of the doubt. Do you not do the same for yourself? I don’t mean to start throwing out excuses for everyone because we all know that hinders growth but to just understand that every creation in this world is flawed can help you have a deeper appreciation for it.
