An inspiration. One thought. All it takes to do something right. To encourage. Encourage yourself. While teaching others to do the same. Not to fight. But love. And play. To play fairly. And not judge. To criticize. Is never accepted. Nor tolerated. To frown upon those less fortunate. Why? Why must people stoop so low? Where they can justify putting others in a place where they themselves would never want to be. A place that should not exist. Putting others down is never nice. Nor should it be tolerated. Yet for some it seems completely fine. For those who don't mind judging. Judging those less fortunate. Or the ones who they see as not worthy enough. Why? Why must such animosity exist in the first place? Where we place judgment on those who we do not know. Nor do we ever take the time out to really get to know. It's a shame. Think about it. How it might feel to have a complete stranger not approve of you. Or the way you talk. Or wear your hair. Wouldn't be nice now would it? Yet we do it. Each and every one of us. Whether we choose to do so on purpose or do so by accident. We have all at one point or another hurt someone. Be it with words. Or the not-so-nice gesture that remotely implies how you feel about that certain person. We are all guilty of having hurt someone. Life is too short to fail at it. Do not waste time putting someone else down. When you should be enjoying your life to its fullest potential. Be kind. Have faith. And rise above anyone who chooses to act inhumane. We are all the same really. Think about it. We all have a purpose in this world. And in no way, shape or form is that purpose to hurt another human being. Be respectful of everyone. Do not judge someone before really getting to know them. Inside and out. It is easy to frown upon people who look different. Behave in a different manner. Why would anyone want to be in the same category as those who judge? Be different. Be unique. Be that one person who differs because you stand against the mistreatment of others. Love. Be fair. And be honest with who you are as a person in this world. Let go. Of the misconceptions that surround our daily life. Be free of judgment. Be real. Stand above.
