Sometimes you stop to think about the purpose of life. You wonder if it is worth living. You start to wonder if anybody cares for you at all. But, then, you think in a different direction. You stop to think about how life has a purpose. A purpose in which others wish that they had when they think they don't. You think that things would be different when you are gone and off the planet into a different world. But, then, sometimes you just need to stop, take a breath, and relax. Think about how others would feel and where your life could end up. Your life is full of wonders. Wonders that you are still trying to discover. Such us a college scholarship or a new job or a new family or a new career path such as singing, writing, or programming. Whichever one is that that you decide to be, it is your decision. Nobody can make it for you. It is something that you do on your own. Although, stopping to breath and to concentrate on your life choices is nothing like smelling the roses outside your house and in the home garden. It is much more than that. It takes complete stillness and ability to stop, focus on what your mind is saying and how you are breathing to be able to relax and create a new way of living instead of living a depressive life. Depression equals suicide. That is not an excellent path to go down. You give others pain and sorrow when you can easily just stay living and focus on what makes you happy: your friends, family, and learning new things to keep your mind active and exercised.
Some will say that there is no worth to living a good life. That the Universe is a fake and that nothing is real anymore. But, that is only because they don't try. Or they tried and they think that they lost the war with themselves. The only thing wrong with that is, they simply gave up without going any further. They thought that life is worthless and has no purpose in reality when, in our reality, life has a purpose. You just need to find the purpose to your life whether it is living for the ones you care about or living because you have a job and make good money whether you are married, dating or single and whether you have children or not. Life is always worth living if you try and not give up. Giving up is like letting your mind quit and shut down. It will kill you on the inside and outside. It is a way to make and destroy pain and it is a road you really don't want to go down. You are in control of who you are. Keep it positive, keep it real. Nobody can be you. Only you can be you and only I can be me. This is a place that everyone should be.
Syren, with all honesty, and not just flattery, I have to tell you that this is some of your best writing. I have always told you that you have a way with words, and I think what you wrote will help many people see that they are valuable. You got it exactly right when you wrote that sometimes people just need to stop and think. We know, but for the ones who don't, "inspire" means "to breathe in".
When I read your line "..., sometimes you just need to stop, take a breath, and relax.", I really did feel my next breath and I did relax. That means your writing is very inspiring. It should be published and be available to people who are in a
life or death crises. Who knows if their main purpose in life might be to catch a child that is falling out of a shopping cart?
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Know that many more people will really appreciate it than you will ever know.

You: *"...stopping to 'breathe'..."
Me: * "...crisis."
( That's a little correction game we play, y'all)

To the person who voted me down for building her up,
You are probably the same person who negated the thumb-up that I gave her.
Perhaps you should stop and think about the purpose of your life. I say that with the hope of you ridding yourself of that negative spirit.
