Life Just Isn't...

Life isn't about keeping score.It's not about how many friends you have or how accepted you are.It's not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone.It isn't about who you're dating,who you use to date,how many people you've dated,or if you've dated anyone at all.It isn't about who you've kissed or about sex.It isn't about who your family is or how much money's in your bank accounts or what kind of car you drive.It's not about where you went to school or what kind of grades you get.It's not about 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."It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.It's not about 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.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.It's about starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip or not.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.

Not Mine-But It's Beautiful
