I just want to do good. Make the world better than the way I came into it. Any suggestions?
I just want to be a good person. The kind of person people think, “Wow, I should try to be like her more often.” The kind of person that leaves people with a happy-ish/ content feeling. The one who tries to be nice to everyone.
I want to give people hope. That the world isn’t all bad. That there are people who care still. Even about the little things.
I want to be a giver and less of a taker. A sustain-er. Of good. For all.
I want to be a lover, not a hater. And to be less judgmental. And more caring about others.
Some people just want to bring me down, though. I can’t explain it; they just don’t think it’s cool to be good, I guess. They don’t mind reaping the benefits of the good I do bring. But they feel obligated to point out that I’m a goody-two-shoes (though I really don’t think I am). They make it so I feel bad about the good I try to do.
But when I call them on it, they insist they would never try to bring me down. How dare I think that? They think I think I’m above them. But how can I be? I’m one of them. We are the same.
I just want to do good. Make the world better than the way it was when I came in it.
A giver of hope. A doer of good deeds.
So I’ll try. I’ll try to do good. Leave the world better than before. I’ll keep trying to bring hope to people. And to be that good person that others secretly want to be more like.
Maybe I’ll inspire to others to do good. And encourage others to keep doing good.
Don’t let them drag you down for doing good. Keep going. Persevere. Fight the good fight. And leave this world better than the way it was before.
Better than before.
