You Are Special

I’ve been wanting to write something like this for a long time.


You are special.

Yes, you. Sitting there, reading this. You are special. And I’m going to tell you why.

The way I think about my life, is that it’s a book. I’m the main character, and also the author. In other words, I’m the guy living my life, but I can also control it.

In the same analogy, you can end the story whenever you want to. However, that’s a sad ending, and nobody likes those. Nobody will buy the book if it’s short, or depressing.

But… it’s kind of hard to phrase this. I’m trying to say that YOU are YOU. You’re nobody else, and the fact that you are you can mean anything – but it also means that you have to deal with your own life.

If you can’t be bothered you live your life… nobody else is going to live it for you. It’s yours. You’re a gift. Use your life wisely, enjoy it.

Of course, every story has its ups and downs, good guys and villains. In my case, my villain is the negative part of myself. But life is never easy, and if you try to live it to the best of your ability, to be a good person, help others, or even just be yourself, then you’re making an effort, and that’s the best thing you can do.

If you think that you’re nobody special, that you’re just one in the billions – forget about the others. You are YOU. You unique. Think of your life as your own little private universe. Anyone that you’ve never met does not yet exist – but, of course, still needs to be taken into account (e.g think of others, don’t harm people you don’t know just because you don’t know them.) Your friends and family are the most important people in the universe. Your house is your domain. You don’t rule your universe, though, or are even the most important person in it – you just live in it.

If you say, “Well, nobody likes me and I have no family,” then only YOU have the power to change this. If nobody likes you because you’re too depressing, throw everything you have in to finding ways to cheer up, to look on the brighter side of life. If people don’t like you for stupid reasons, then they’re obviously not fit to be your friends. Don’t try to be somebody you’re not.

If you commit suicide, you’re ending everything. One day, you’ll be forgotten. You will rot. That sounds harsh, yes, but it’s true. However, if you make friends and love your family, you’ll make a mark. Even if it doesn’t feel like it, people will remember you. I know that people will remember me, because I’ve given love and received it in return.

If you think that you don’t deserve to follow this advice, then maybe you don’t. But don’t fucking give up. Don’t convince yourself you can’t follow this advice. Just follow it. If you disagree, fine, just make sure to find a way to let yourself know that you mean something.

You were born. Whether you were planned, or an accident, you exist. You have rights, and you have life. You can either make the most of the life you have, or you can sit around, do nothing, and die stupidly, and alone. And I don’t care who you are, I know that NOBODY wants that fate. If you say you do, you’re lying. If I’m wrong, and you truly do, then you were the most selfish person I’ve met in my entire life.

But just remember, you’re here. That’s all that matters, no matter what your beliefs are. Just live. And enjoy it.


My views on my life

What inspired me to finally write this, however: Song – Eminem: Beautiful

Also, the part about your personal universe – I can’t remember where I got that from, but that was not my personal analogy. I did build on it a little however.

Thanks to my friend Gunjan who always there my side to support me and boost me up!
