I realize there are a lot of people who will willingly read this because they care and that there are also a handful that won't admit to looking because they want to portray that they "don't care." Either way, whatever group you fall under, these words are for you because they matter to all.
Be conscious of where your energy lies. I can't express how much this matters.
Understand that in this world, there are major issues and harmful wrongs we should spend our words and time bringing attention to. Choose these instead of getting involved in minuscule rumors or attacks on those that won't mean anything 30 days from now. Be wise and save that momentum.
Additionally, make sure you surround yourself with people who want to lift your spirits instead of shooting you down or critiquing your ways. Make sure these people you're around, WANT to be around you. Interact with people who have goals, big hearts, open ears, loud mouths, value maturity yet have enough balance to not take everything in life so god damn seriously. Paying attention to who is kept around you directly correlates to the energy that you'll receive and the energy you'll eventually project back into the world. Oh and learn to brush off any negativity or ache that people try to swift your way. This will happen a lot. Again, save your energy.
If you're in your early twenties like me, or even late, or even nineties for that matter, be conscious of what issues and whom you're spending precious brainpower on.
So for all of you, again: this is your energy, your life that could wither away. Be selective and apply yourself where it matters, spread word on issues that count, stop looking for reasons to try to attach negativity to a fellow human unless they've deliberately done you wrong. After-all, this is YOUR energy and YOUR shine that's wasted otherwise.
