You Won’t Ever Enjoy Life Without It..

“Often we pass beside happiness without seeing it, without looking at it, or even if we have seen and looked at it, without recognizing it.” – Alexander Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

In life there are many things that make us happy like friends, family, toys, pets, many, many, things… But how did these people/things turn into such treasures in your lives and more importantly how often do we acknowledge these things? What I’ve come to realize is that these things that make us so happy seem to have been destined to make their way into our lives. Whether it’s by meeting at a bus stop or fighting at first sight and then later becoming the best of friends, these things come into your lives in the most peculiar ways. But after being around these blessed things for so long you soon forget to acknowledge them and all these huge things in your life no longer get appreciated.

Basically, what you’re doing is ignoring the things that make you happy. You stop noticing that these people you’re leaving behind matter most to you, and you act like you don’t even care for them… until they’re gone from your life. That’s something you absolutely can never do, so consider this a warning call for everyone who comes across this. We must learn as people to always appreciate the little things in life because one day when those little things are no longer there, we realize that those little things were the biggest parts of our lives. Without those little things our lives begin to fall… like dominoes, creating one huge crushing result unless you deal with it correctly.

So you must be wondering, how do I learn to acknowledge the greater things in life and appreciate everything I love? Well again, it starts with the little things. As cheesy as it sounds, that’s as real as it gets. Simply washing the dishes for your mom, or spending an extra 5 seconds of your day to say good night to your family, or even just calling a sick friend to see how they’re feeling is enough to brighten up their day and leave a mark in their life. Moments like these not only change them for a day but over time they shape that person into a person that will create an everlasting mark in your life. Keep loving and when the moment comes, when these important people begin to disappear from your life, you will feel satisfied, satisfied that you did what you could in your life to spread your love to them and to maximize your life around them.  Loving can be the difference between future optimism and future sorrow. The choice is yours.

    Lately, I’ve been feeling really unappreciated by almost everyone I care about. Sometimes, I do things to help them out or brighten their day. Unfortunately, no one ever seems to notice. It’s not like I’m expecting to be showered with love or anything, but it’d be nice to get a “Thank you” every now and then. I’m not saying I WANT or NEED more attention, but I’d like my presence/existence to at least be acknowledged; especially by loved ones such as family members, real friends, etc. I know I’m not the most popular, but I’m also know I’m not a complete loner. I have friends and family who say they love and care about me, but their actions don’t exactly speak as loud as their words. I constantly feel neglected and forgotten, and this one of the worst feelings I’ve ever had to endure. I want to make sure that I never make anyone feel this way because no one deserves to. Absolutely, no one.

    “If they never acknowledged my presence, would they ever take note of my absence?”

    I’ve been asking myself this question for years. Sadly, I’ve never gotten an answer, and I don’t think I ever will.

    Here is one blogger that “knows what’s up”. He knows how people like me feel, and how to make us feel better.
