Never Lost A Case.
Don't lose hope.
So, there's something that's been bugging me for quite some time, especially during the late hours of the day when my everyday life is quieting down and the world slows down so I can relax before falling asleep, as that is the time where my mind runs wild, and I really get to thinking.
I think about all the shitty things that's happening. Not just things that's happened to me personally things like heartbreaks, economical problems, depression and betrayal. No, what gets me is the state of the world. How incredibly messed up the world is. People are dying all over the world, we let people starve in exchange for buying ourselves a nicer house or car or boat.
We value pieces of paper, or numbers on a computer more than we value a human life. There's people being raped, tortured and murdered all over the globe for the dumbest reasons, things like greed, anger and hate.
However, what gets me really down isn't the mindless killing, nor is it the hate, not even the idea of children starving irks me that much. Why? Because I don't care. I can't allow myself to care about those people, because I know if I do, I'll get hurt. It's the cynicism that's found in virtually every adult. The complete lack of faith in the human-species. I think nearly everyone agrees that they think that when the world ends, it ends at the hands of man. We'd be our own undoing, and well, I agree. We are our own worst enemy, we have always been, and we will always be.
But I think that one of the roots of the problem is in this apathy to other human beings. This lack of caring. Let's take a look at this, in a urban society. Those of us who are fortunate enough to have a door locks the door when we leave the room / house, correct? It's the natural thing to do for us, we've been taught to do so since we were kids, and we look at those who doesn't lock their doors as stupid. We lock our doors because we're afraid. We're afraid of getting robbed or otherwise hurt.
By locking your door and protecting what is yours, you instantly antagonize every other person on the entire planet. On one level, you make everyone your enemy. At some level, you believe that every person in the whole world would want to hurt you. And to protect yourself from getting hurt, you lock your door.
I, like everyone else do the same. But just because everyone does it, does it make it okay? To believe that everyone else is guilty without trial, without a second thought?
Essentially, by turning that key in your door, you confirm that you don't truly trust people. You don't trust anyone. ( I do know about spare-keys. It's a metaphor, chill.)
This is how 99.9% of people feel like. That anyone, family, friends, partners anyone could, and will hurt you, unless you protect yourself. Thing is, it's probably true.
But that's not the point of this. No, the point of this is for you to try to believe in people. Believe that people are worth fighting for. That people, deep down wants to strive to be good. That the stranger you pass on the street is a good person, that your initial thought of a person is positive, rather than negative. Have expectations of people, and dare to hope dare to believe in people. Because when they fail you, you know that you at least believe in them, and sometimes, that's all a person needs. Someone to believe in them. Because I believe in people. I believe that every single person has a part of good in them. And only through believing in them can you help this good out of it's shell of darkness.
Maybe this is all just hippie talk and I'm naive for believing it. Is to believe in people against the nature of man? The stats certainly seems to point to that. But maybe, just maybe, there's a tiny chance that I'm right. And if there's a chanceisn't it worth the risk?
When you believe in people, they tend to not only surprise you, but even surprise themselves.
TL;DR: " People are dicks, but don't let it extinguish your hope. Keep believing in people."
Carpe the fuck out of this Diem.
Everybody dies. Some more often than others.
Never consider yourself a ugly person, consider yourself a beautiful monkey.
