Past memories linger, Scrolling by on a slideshow, Painted black and white Those snapshots haunt me, Smiling faces mocking, Laughing at where I am now
Take a peek underneath At everything the surface won't show See me, See me for who I truly am
Always try to empathize with others and make a genuine effort to understand their situation. You never know what another person may have going on in their life, what they might be dealing with. And you may not truly be able to understand until you get to know them better or experience their situation yourself. But, that's why rather than pass judgement on others, we should treat them with kindness and understanding instead. Show them tolerance and acceptance.
Remember that it's okay to take a break, especially if you're feeling burnt out or worn down. You don't always have to be creating, working, doing, or generally being productive. It's perfectly alright and understandable to take a break from your more productive activities and take time to rest/relax instead.
Embers of hope spark within my heart, Daring to wish for a semblance of change Yet again, my expectations are extinguished As quickly as they came to fruition, A withering flame trying desperately to maintain life
