Live Your Life - You Are Special

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

Live your life
Live your life | Source

We have one life, and we should learn to live it right. We should not make ourselves miserable by the hurtful things people say.

We should not define our worth by what other people say. They may do it just out of spite or because they are jealous of you or they just want to bring you down a notch or two.

Some people make it a point to make others miserable and are happy doing it. Do not bother about them, God has made you because he loves you and you are special.

Live your life, you are special!

Losing out on living life,

Caring only for what other people say,

Losing joy,

Losing hope,

Losing life in every way,

Too scared to face the world,

Worried what other people might say,

Losing precious minutes,

When you can be happy,

When you think that nothing matters,

But what other people say,

You are wrong, this is not right,

You cannot go on like this,

Life is to live,

Learn how to fight,

Stand up be brave,

Have courage,

Have faith,

Do not believe what others say,

Believe in yourself,

Be proud of who you are,

No matter what other people say,

Remember this,

God made you special,

God made you this way,

Losing out on life,

Is never the way,

Live your life,

You are special.

      Vellur - your spirit and understanding of the meaning of life perfectly fit what I was trying to express in my reply to your comment just now about the tragic deaths of my sister and her family. We have just so many years of life to invest, so we must focus on its positives and values! The moments we are living is the only one we are assured of having, so we must make it count!

      Thank you. - Love - Nellieanna
