I’m feeling upset with the world lately. Like its the worlds fault i feel the anger that eats me. If its not the everyday events of work or catching a bus its people and friends. I will rest assured find someone or something to blame for my unhappiness. And the responsibility lies with myself from here on in. You are the vessel to which you live in. You decide what to absorb and simply what to let go. Happiness starts from the inside out. And its starts with you.
“I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at Christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when peole smile at me, when people are polite to me. There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful; I have every reason in the world to be happy.”—A few reasons why I’ll always prefer living by elsablt (via peachical)
my social studies teacher once told us “human beings are the most selfish of all. even when someone dies, you shed tears only because they are no more around to provide you with whatever they had been for so long”
and it has been 3 years since she said this and this is still what i think about at night
