I Will Never Judge You
I will never judge you.
You’re human, just like me, and you’re trying your best.
Who am I to say you aren’t living a life worth living?
That isn’t up to me; it’s up to you. We each live in our own world according to our own principles and we have no right to force them onto each other or anyone else. We can simply offer them.
Nothing less, nothing more.
Even though we may not know each other, I care about you. I want you to accomplish your goals, materialize your ideas, and reach your full potential.
Isn’t that what any of us want? Aren’t we all looking for a chance to find purpose in this crazy, chaotic world?
Like air, we cannot rely on someone else for too long; we must fill our own lungs with deep breaths. Others can help, but it is ultimately up to our own resolve to continue looking.
Struggle is universal. It doesn’t matter how poor or rich we are — we all suffer in one way or another. Everyone is facing their own battles, their own demons. I will never forget this.
No matter how much wealth one has, they are just as susceptible to sickness — mental, physical, or otherwise. The wealthy have just as much potential for struggle as those of us without anything.
It’s a different struggle, a grass-is-greener struggle.
We cannot live our lives according to someone else’s success or struggle; we can only learn and apply this to our own experiences.
In this way, it is never too early to share our experiences for the benefit of others. Your struggle is different, but it can inform someone else’s struggle, providing a new understanding.
We should all strive for one thing: to struggle well.
What might this look like?
To struggle well is to struggle towards your purpose. The inverse is also true; to struggle poorly is to adopt someone else’s struggle as your own. This may seem good-natured, but you will ultimately set yourself up for failure.
Share your struggle. Learn from others, take what you can, and leave the rest.
This can be a vicious cycle. Does struggle inform purpose or does purpose inform your struggle?
Could it possibly be both?
It doesn’t matter. Start with one and the other will make itself known.
This will take patience. You will stumble. You will struggle even more.
That’s OK. You’re human, just like me, and you will try your best.
