MY CONTRIBUTION [7-14-13]
I wish our world was perfect, but it isn’t. It never will be. I wish I was perfect, but I’m not. And I never will be. In my successes and failures, one of the most important things I’ve learned is this. I can’t hold anyone accountable or responsible for my actions except myself. The most important thing I think I can contribute to society and our world is bettering myself. If I fervently work to treat every single human being as an equal, regardless of their gender, race, sexuality, or social status-it’s my contribution to the human race.
I have to feel obligated to augment my self-awareness. I have to be able to judge myself accurately and honestly when I look in the mirror. I have to realize that I’m human, which means I’m imperfect. I have to continue to mature as a person while being present in every moment of my life. I have to recognize temptation and negativity, and either correct it if possible or move away from it. I have to refine my introspection-it’s my contribution to the human race.
Speaking from experience, here’s my personal example. I did irreparable damage to my body over time because of my passion for wrestling and performing when I shouldn’t have. My passion influenced me to make bad decisions that led me to becoming bitter and dark for a small period in my life. By biting into the apple of temptation, trouble found me. I hate that I had to experience that darkness to evolve into the man that I am now, but I did. If you give into temptation, hate, fear, immorality, or negativity, the demons and diseases that haunt human beings will find you, no matter who you are or what your social status is. We are all human, regardless of our occupational title or how much money we make per hour. I hope to make a difference by sharing my good and bad experiences; it’s my contribution to the human race.
I can’t change anyone except myself. All I can do is improve myself as much as I can and strive to reach an impossible goal of perfection that I’ll never attain, but I feel challenged to try – At the very least, I will hopefully continue to develop into a better human being if I do so.
Maybe this blog and my story will touch someone.
I’ll continue to evolve and grow, I’ve prove it possible for anyone to change. And that’s my contribution to all of my fellow human beings across this planet. I’ll leave you with a mantra that I formed when I truly learned how fragile and priceless all of our lives are.
