i just wanted to take a minute and let everyone know that you do not need a mirror to see yourself, in fact you don't need to look at another human to see yourself. you are everything. the life you influence to the life that influences you is all.. you. your pet is you, the tree is you, the grass is you, the weed is you. (wait did i just say the same thing?) let me give you an example of how you take care of yourself when you can't take care of yourself. I was feeling very depressed not too long ago and had decided it was time to go. leave for good. i quit my job and lied to my parents that i was still going. in my time off i went to wal mart and home depot to check the prices of my needed supplies to off myself and to know there location. On one of the days i was at "work" i went to wal-mart to go put some needed supplies on layaway as i didn't have the money at the time. i knew once i had these things back there i was on my sure way out of here. holding supplies in my hand walking towards layaway i asked an employee to come help me. then i heard the worst (best) words of my life " we are not accepting layaway right now, only moving things out" in hindsight, i realize that a greater influence loved me so much that it gave me the opportunity to hold off, and keep trying. i want everyone to know that I love you all because we are in fact the oldest and dearest of friends, and some of you don't even know it, yet. a time will come when we all will realize this truth and the pain and fear of ourselves will go away. this is also why love is so important, because only love will try and find what is best for everybody, realizing what's best for everyone is best for the self.
