I got affected by this post http://ryanericsongcanlas.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/everybody-wants-to-rule-the-world/ that is why I’m writing a similar topic about it.
Most of the people that I know are rushing to make it on TOP even if it means hurting other people along the way. The weaker ones become the scapegoat while the strong and resistant ones become the enemy. I feel like I’m trapped inside a big aquarium full of big and ferocious fishes. The story of Yellow and Stripe on “Hope For The Flowers” is a reflection of what is happening in our society and how we should react to adversities in life.
I choose to walk on the difficult yet right path and I know that I will chance upon many obstacles before I reach my destination. For a time, I tried to adapt to the other creatures’ standards and it made me doubt my existence even more. In all honesty, the good seed that my parents planted on me triumphed over the norms that I wanted to embrace.
The problem with nice people is they fail to acknowledge the evilness of people. That bad people are driven by personal desires to conquer and to rise above all. Nice people are easy targets of manipulators and abusers; being nice doesn’t work all the time because there will always be vultures ready to attack.
A friend told me that he doesn’t have the support of a higher power so being passive is all that he could do. God is my greatest support and He is the HIGHEST power. I don’t expect Him to favor me all the time but I know that He will mediate between me and the people causing me pain. With His healing hands, I know that He will touch the heart of those people. And if that is not possible, I know that He will open new doors of opportunities for me.
Life doesn’t have to be miserable. Life is too short to think about the negatives. Life is giving me valuable lessons to prepare me for a better future.
