Although it's true that we're all individuals and unique to this world, we still all need love, guidance, acceptance and support at times.
We need to know that we can be different from one another, but that doesn't mean that we're strange.
We need reassurance that even though we make mistakes, there will still be someone there who loves us anyway.
We need family and we need friends.
There are also people that need us. Our families need to know that they are important in our lives. Our teachers need to feel that the knowledge they are imparting to us will help us to shape our future. Our friends need to understand that we too are going through the same hopes, dreams and fears that they are. We can all be a little more caring, a little more understanding, a little more loving to the people around us and in our lives. If we made a point of seeing things from the other guy's side a little more often, and consciously considered each other's feelings before we acted, everyone would find the going a little easier.
Take care of someone who loves you, and while you're at it, take care of someone else very special... YOU! You are an important part of this world and it really wouldn't be the same without you.
