Stand Up

Sometimes, I just feel useless -- like my life has no point. I watch people on the streets who are homeless and have no one, and I feel powerless to come to their aid. You know, sometimes I feel like I can't do anything to make a difference. I'm only one small person in this huge world. Who cares about what I do?

At times like these, I feel negative and dull. The only reason my life exists is just to add another person to this miserable world. Another life for the devil to toy with.

But is there really a reason for any of this? For us to live?

I guess that the best we can do is make the best of it. We've got to believe in what we can and hold onto every shred of hope, because we've got to survive. Whether or not this world is terrible, we need to stand up and make a difference. I mean, look at what this is coming to! Fake love, betrayal, hurt, envy . . . what's the point of all of this? The point is that the more people that gain up the courage to make a difference WILL make a difference. Sure, you're only another person in this world, but a person that can add to the mass.

But wait . . . how DO you make a difference? It's pretty simple, but it depends on what you're trying to change, of course.

Maybe if you want to help people gain a larger self-esteem in how they look, you could follow the steps in Morgan612's article, Operation Beautiful.

Perhaps you desire to have the world be cleaner. How 'bout you stand up yourself, and clean up a nearby park or recycle?

The opportunities are endless! There are tons of things in the world that need to be changed, and there are tons of ways to each thing that should be made different. Don't be discouraged, and don't forget -- if you try to make a difference, others will, and if that happens, imagine what will be accomplished! Never give up, and keep trying.
