There's one thing sure about life, if nothing else..

There will always be people who will misunderstand you and inevitably hurt you.

You will also hurt people, intentionally or not.

This happens because we're humans. We're not perfect beings. We stumble and fall, make mistakes, and muddle our way through life.

All that television and movies does for us is open up this window, and looking in you see a perfect world, with people who look perfect, who are lovable in character, who we can identify with.

Why can't we make it our mission to identify with actual people who surround us, who we relate to on a daily basis?

Why is it so hard to connect with people? Is it our own fears, or is it because we believe they would not like it?

Truth be told, life is all about relationships, and when we lack or even possibly fail at them, we feel that void, we feel that life isn't worth living -- at least, for the moment,'s easy to get caught up in this sadness that life isn't the way we envisioned it would be.

But what we really should be doing is living our lives as fully and completely as we can.

It doesn't get much better than this.
