"Be Soft. Do Not Let The World Make You Hard. Do Not Let The Pain Make You Hate. Do Not Let The Bitterness Steal Your Sweetness. Take Pride That Even Though The Rest Of The World May Disagree, You Still Believe It To Be A Beautiful Place"
One of the hardest lessons for me is that no matter how many times you try to explain yourself, there are people who are unable or unwilling to see things from your perspective. There will always be people who allow the bitterness to eat them up. You cannot control someones actions, but you can control your reaction to them. It's most unfortunate that they use the energy to be cold, instead of to do good. For me, I'll choose a positive perspective to live my life by.
