It is not always an easy task, trying to learn how to become a better person.
Darkness can be alluring. It can be comfortable and inviting. Happiness is so intangible. Just like coldness is only a lack of warmth, I think happiness is a lack of pain, sorrow and anger.
And there is nothing better to suck all the bad out of your life, than hanging around positive people. We hear that all the time. It sounds corny, but it is true.
Hate and hurt can be toxic, and spread like weeds, but positivity can be just as infectious. And it seems like lately, I’ve managed to suround myself with many genuinely kind souls. I don’t even have to share my problems with them. Their aurae suffice to make me grow in very subtle ways… Most of them probably don’t realize the good they are generating.
I feed on their strength, on their frank laughter, their way to pursue their dreams, their perseverence in overcoming the obstacles Life puts it front of them… I silently feed on their unique greatness.
I’d say the key is to be glad for people’s happiness, instead of being envious.
It seems to be working for me.
I’d love to point fingers, but there are too many of you, out there, I’d have to give a shout out at! I’d also be afraid to forget some of you, and I don’t want anybody to feel left out either.
But you will know, in time 🙂 You will… If you don’t already!
