Sometimes life’s hard

Sometimes I compare myself to others and wishing I already had what they had. Its hard to watch my dad work 80 hours a week while other people have way better jobs -and some don’t need jobs at all. It’s hard to see rich people express just how big they finances are while their utilizing products that were made overseas by people who’s pay is only enough to keep them alive(and I’m not just talking about the 1% here). Its hard to not wish America could set an example again of what good products and quality work places mean.

Sometimes I stay up at night just thinking about all the pain and suffering that all different aspects of life have caused people. But I then remind myself to sit down and just breathe.

Looking through the internet at just how much horrific things people have been through can leave my mind going all over the place. Because even though I’m just one person, I wish the answers were laid out in front of me.

I look at the internet and see how many horrible things people, animals and the earth have been put through, that sometimes I just find it overwhelming. And I wonder why we’ve let things go this far. But I have to remember that everyone is on a different journey and we may never be on the same page.

When I think about how hard life can be for myself as well as other people, the only thing that gets me to sleep at night is to remember that ideas that will benefit us all come with time and incubation. And its best for me to question the new ideas I’ve come up with before passing them onto other people.

I am uncomfortable believing I know the answers without question. However, I am comfortable questioning something and saying I don’t know and hoping we can work together to find a genuine one.
