Your Battles

I've never despised those who struggle, because that way we know that we are alive. Though we look at those who live life from day to day without any worries (or maybe they worry about the most trivial thing like where or what they should eat tomorrow) with green eyes, there is this knowing that we don't want to be like them.

We struggle because we are aware of something that should be rectified or purified.

Life is funny. We are bombarded from all directions. We can't ascertain where all the bombs that strike us come from, but all we know is we are living in dangerous times, both figuratively and literally speaking. Why live in perilous times, have you ever wondered? Why try oh so very hard? Why give a damn?

Because maybe by giving a damn, maybe by trying, our lives may be more worth living. Maybe by taking risks and saying "whatever comes", our lives would be more... adventurous, for the lack of a better word. Maybe by making mistakes, we learn how life is not meant to be lived and realize how life should be lived.

For without mistakes, we don't learn. Without black, we can't see white.

Life is a battlefield, whether we realize it or not. It's just how we take it, how we climb up when we're hit, how we strive to live.

Not all battles are worth crying over so many times, but all battles are worth conquering. We are not losers, just maybe winners who either don't realize we are or don't want to be one.

Just do it.

Risking something makes us feel alive.
It gives us a natural high & it can get addictive.
Just look at thrill seekers & chronic gamblers.

If ppl want to play safe & live insignificant lives, let them.
As for you & I, we're going for the big one!
