>>>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.
