What Life is and isn’t About !

Posted on Updated on

Life isn’t about keeping score. It’s not about how many friends you have. Or how accepted you are. Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you’re alone.

It isn’t about who you’re dating, who you used to date, how many people you’ve dated, or if you haven’t been with anyone at all. It isn’t about who you have kissed, it’s not about sex.

It isn’t about who your family is or how much money they have. Or what kind of car or motorbike you drive. Or where you are sent to school or college. It’s not about how beautiful or ugly you are. Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, Or what kind of music you listen to.

It’s not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown. Or if your skin is too light or too dark. Not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everybody else thinks you are, or how smart standardized tests say you are. It’s not about what clubs you’re in or how good you are at “your” sport. It’s not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and seeing who will “accept the written you.”


But, life is about whom you love and whom you hurt.

It’s about whom you make happy or unhappy purposefully. It’s about keeping or betraying trust.

It’s about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon. It’s about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening. About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.

It’s about what judgments you pass and why. And who your judgments are spread to. It’s about whom you’ve ignored with full control and intention. It’s about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge. It’s about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and spreading it.

But most of all, it’s about using your life to touch or poison other people’s hearts in such a way that could have never occurred alone.

Only you choose the way those hearts are affected, and those choices are what life’s all about.

What do u think about life?

    This is a master post. Enjoyed every words of it. In my view, life appears as an Experience. We all are here to feel, to be touched, to serve, to be served, learn, and to teach. Life is life. Experience it the max without shortening your ability to experience more. Love all, feel hate, feel being poor, try feeling being rich. Its your life, make it as unique as you are. Finally, enjoy whateve you do.

    Dear Utsab Ji

    On your blogroll the link to LawNepal is missing. It is mentioned as nepali lawyer at the rate gmail dot com. It should be as follows:

    Link: http://www.santosgere.wordpress.com

    Best regards for the new year and our readers

    Many have questioned me about this post whether i was the original writer or i had copied it from otherwhere. Initially, i thought that this is the blog and it doesn’t matter. Actually, i wasn’t the author of this post but, it is true that i couldn’t find the name of the original author. Where i got this entry, there is also silence about the author. I feel regret for not mentioning about the truth. At least, I should have mention author unkown. I m impressed from this writing and i post it for others. And this is the only one post in my blog which i have cheated without mentioning about the author. In the case of remaining entries either they are mine or there has clearly mentioned about the author.

    Sorry for that.
