‘Three years? That’s a thousand tomorrows, ma’am’
Dear person behind the screen,
What can be more simple than having a belief? All you have to do is find something you are truly passionate about and something you are willing to stand up for. Of course, that standing up can happen on different levels; not allowing people to change your opinion and ultimately staying true to what you feel. But what happens when staying true and honest about your believes is the hardest thing.
We like to say that our society has developed and that it has changed to better and that people are more open-minded. Of course there has been a change for better, it is almost impossible to deny that. However there are still people who will try to hurt you (both mentally and physically) for something you stand up for, and more than anything will attempt to take your believes away from you.
Sometimes, staying true will mean loosing people, people close to us, people we thought we will always have by our side. Some times are believes are so powerful that they drive people away. Some times they will make us lose. Of course this reminds me of the x-files, how Fox believed to a point that it meant he was alone. But he still believed. This amount of strength is truly admirable. But does it bring real happiness? of course, there is no currency we can measure happiness in. But does believing to a point that it hurts and alters our daily lives brings us happiness?
What do you think?
