>>>LIFE
>>> 
>>>Life isn't about keeping score.
>>>It's not about how many friends you have
>>>Or how accepted you are.
>>>Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone.
>>>It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date, how many people
>>>you've dated, or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
>>>It isn't about who you have kissed,
>>>It's not about sex.
>>>It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have
>>>Or what kind of car you drive.
>>>Or where you are sent to school.
>>>It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.
>>>Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you
>>>listen to.
>>>It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown
>>>Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
>>>Not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everybody
>>>else thinks you are, or how smart standardized tests say you are.
>>>It's not about what clubs you're in or how good you are at "your" sport.
>>>It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and
>>>seeing who will "accept the written you."
>>> 
>>>LIFE JUST ISN'T.
>>> 
>>>But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.
>>>It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.
>>>It's about keeping or betraying trust.
>>>It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.
>>>It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.
>>>About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.
>>>It's about what judgments you pass and why.  And who your judgments are
>>>spread to.
>>>It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.
>>>It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
>>>It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and
>>>spreading it.
>>>But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other
>>>people's hearts in such a way that could have never occurred alone.
>>>Only you choose the way those hearts are affected, and those choices
>>>are what life's all about.
