Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even thought the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
In this lifetime we dont need much, and "stuff" doesn't make you happy anyway. If your "stuff" make others feel unhappy that tells you a lot about them. If people need "stuff" to make them happy that tells you even more.
