I believe that you should never give up on a dream. A lot of times people give up on their dreams because they’ve let someone else tell them that they can’t achieve them, that their dream is impossible, enough negativity can kill a dream. That said, I think that we grow up in a society that tells us from a very young age that we’re all special, that we’re all gifted and unique, that if we want to go to the moon and be a movie star, we can. Unfortunately, that’s not true, not everyone is special and not everyone is unique. I look around myself all of the time and feel completely inadequate; I think we all do, and there’s a reason for that. There are over six billion people in the world right now, if everyone was equally as talented or gifted or had an amazingly unique idea, people like Bill Gates, Audrey Hepburn, and Lady Gaga wouldn’t get their chance to shine, and that’s just the way it is. Everyone has a dream, and they should never let go of it, but you have to know that just because you have a dream doesn’t mean it will come true, and that’s okay, because at the end of the day the most important thing is that you understand that you have a purpose and you’re on this earth for a reason. The most beautiful and poetic part about it is that you may never know what that purpose is and you may never be truly appreciated until your dead and gone. I believe that we’re put on this earth to impact people’s lives through our interactions with one another. No matter how insignificant a moment in your life might seem just know that it’s all a part of one giant picture that’s being painted and sometimes you can only see it one stroke at a time.
