What life is truly about

I found this quote a couple of years back, circulating on the web, by an anonymous person.

Do you agree with what is says about life? What do you think life should or shouldn’t be about?

Life isn’t about keeping score.

It’s not about how many people call you

and it’s not about who you’ve dated, are dating, or haven’t dated at all.

It isn’t about who you’ve kissed,

what sport you play,

or which guy or girl likes you.

It’s not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your skin

or where you live or go to school.

In fact, it’s not about your grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you or not.

Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends,

or if you are alone,

and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are.

Life isn’t just about that.

But life is about who you love

and who you hurt.

It’s about how you feel about yourself.

It’s about trust, happiness, and compassion.

It’s about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love.

Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building confidence.

It’s about what you say and what you mean.

It’s about seeing people for who they are

and not what they have.

Most of all,

it is about choosing to use your life

to touch someone else’s

in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise.

These choices are what life is about
