I have one life to live. Just the single one. One life to make all the mistakes I possibly can. One life to make as much of a fool of myself as I can. One life to humiliate and be shameful of. But at the same time, I have only one life to live. One life to achieve things. One life to feel joy beyond compare. One life to LOVE. One life to laugh, to DANCE. One life to ENJOY. So why, WHY, would I ever waste anytime thinking of doing anything, or not doing something, because I feel it might upset someone. WHY would I even think about sacrificing my ONE chance at this particular happiness? WHY am I even considering having a lower priority than someone else in these matters? Fuck It. I have one life to live. I have one life to regret, one life to enjoy, and I plan on doing EVERYTHING I am capable of in that time.
A little perspective of your life, and the lives of the other ~7billion people who exist.
We, are, nothing. In the grand scheme of the universe, we don’t even exist. We are too small to comprehend. Just as it is impossible to comprehend the 7 billion people who you share earth with you. But it is exactly because of this that we are *unimaginably* extraordinary. In all of known and explored space, our tiny grain of sand on a bigger grain of sand in the infinitely deep pockets of space, we exist. As small as the chances and the probabilities are, we, are, alive. The sheer fact that you wake up in the morning should be enough to make you live the rest of your life in bewilderment. And you do that *every* day and think to yourself how much you wish you were still asleep. Your existence is an anomaly of astronomical proportions. Your biology and the way it is designed is unimaginably complex. The air that you breathe is so rare, this is the only place it exists in our solar system. We are improbable. We are near impossible. We don’t even have the decency to be fully explainable. But we are.
Live your life. Live like you should never even existed. Live like you have been given the smallest chance to experience *everything*. Live like there is nothing that is more rare and special. Because there isn’t.
