All I ask of you is one thing: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism, for the record, it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.
A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.
I'm wearing: Amanda's top, F21 skirt, second hand belt and shoes.
I've been disappointed in a lot of my fellow human beings lately. I won't go into specifics, but I'm tired of seeing people experience less of the world than they could because they let themselves be limited by "realism" (another word for cynicism, in my opinion). I'm tired of seeing people take advantage of one another, cut each other down, and not be open and honest in all things. It frustrates me to no end. Why would you construct a shell of negativity around yourself? Why would you go out of your way to hurt someone, or to make their life harder in any capacity?
I may not be the most happy-go-lucky, optimistic person in the world every day of my life. I tend to be hard on myself, or worry that things will go as badly as possible in many situations. But when it comes to the inherent good and love in every human being, when it comes to trusting that people will do the right thing in general, and when it comes to expecting people to treat one another with respect and dignity, you could call me idealistic. Sure, but I'd rather live by a set of ideals than by the crushed hopes of the cynical.
I could go on and on about this, but I won't, because it'll just get me down. Today, I'm going to be happy and enjoy life's little things, and ignore the rest of them. The cynics and the assholes and all negativity in general can just bugger off!
