In life I’ve learned that the one person that you thought will never
let you down will and that the only thing that keeps you living from
day to day is the hope that we have instilled in others. It’s amazing
how we take all of our hopes, dreams, and fears and trust in someone
else but it’s the hardest to believe in our own self. Is the hope that
we put towards others the same hope that we spend a life time trying to
find for ourselves? In the nineteen short years I have lived on this
earth I have dealt with heartache, misery, depression, and so much
more. Each person always thinks that they have it worse off than
another but in reality there is always someone that has it worse off
than you. Why is it when you approach someone and ask how their day is
they always answer with “good” or “alright, how about yours?” How come
humans are so afraid to admit that they’re having a bad day? That’s
what we humans are; happy plastic people. Casting Crowns wrote a song
about people like us. Every human is capable to depend on another
person for several things. Why is it that we have all become so
inferior of one another? It’s amazing how humans don’t hang on to
another person’s every word because there is so much to learn from one
another. I believe that every human has at least one
good story to tell. If you ever get the chance to take the time out of
your meticulously demanding schedule and listen to the words that
another human speaks you will find yourself bewildered but delighted.
Humans are more powerful beyond reason. Marianne Williamson previously
wrote in her book “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a
Course in Miracles” that “Our deepest fear is not that we’re
inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It
is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask
ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of
God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure
around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to
make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some
of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are
liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates
others.” If we all lived by those words do you think this world would
be better off and that our neighboring stranger wouldn’t judge us by
the clothes we wear or the way we portray ourselves? Is it so much that
we not only have to prove ourselves to everyone but we actually care
what that “other person” thinks so much to let it run our lives. It’s
funny though when you think about that. God doesn’t judge us by our
sins and neither does Jesus. After all, Jesus did die on the cross to
prove that love is real. So where’s the love y’all?
