“I Believe” by Miracle
I can believe, I can not believe, the choice is mines, just like I chose to be, so can you. I can be loyal, I can be respectful, I can be dependable, I can be loving, I can be appreciative. I can also be an asshole, I can be mean, I can hurt people unintentionally but is that what I believe? My answer is no, I believe people treat others based on how they make them feel. If someone makes you angry or hurts you why not get back at them, make them feel everything you do or did, but is that really the way to go? What if they never meant any harm, what if they were doing what they felt was right and you went and pushed them down and walked all over them just so they could feel something negative like you did? Does it make it okay because you felt pain or suffering, what if they were going through something and you just added to it? Does it make it okay then? What if you pushed them, forced them to feel like they weren’t good enough, does it still make it okay then? I believe not, I believe all humans should have values and value each other. I believe if someone is loyal to you, you should be the same to them, I believe if you can depend on someone, you should be dependable as well. We’re all human and it’s in our nature to get mad, jealous and want revenge but sometimes we have to take a step back and realize we are all humans and we all deserve respect at least, I understand lots of things are earned but one thing I strongly believe we should never lose sight of is how we can make others feel. I would never want anyone to feel anything negative I have, I know my life is easy compared to other peoples but still, feeling alone, scared, not good enough and having people walk over on top of everything just makes it worse. For what though? Did it makes them feel better knowing they could hurt me, that they made me feel way less of myself because I UNINTENTIONALLY did things to piss them off or hurt them? I believe not, I believe I showed enough respect to get treated back with respect, I believe people shouldn’t make anyone feel less of themselves, I mean if they just so happened to take their own life, god forbid, but could you honestly live with yourself knowing your words or actions were the reason? I believe not.
