YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE: lIVE LIKE YOU'RE DYING
Have you ever thought of death; how many times? Has the question ever come to mind, what would it be like if you had died at any moment, what would your last thoughts be? Like Tony Braxton sang in the song-Yesterday, " don't you wish you had a time machine to rewind history?" Death is considered a scary topic, because anything that we haven't experienced is to be feared, it is only natural. Yet. there are many cultures and civilizations that believed that death is a magic experience, such as, the Vikings and the Ancient Egyptians, because there was life after the life you once live, or life continues. Christians believe, you either go to heaven or hell and live in eternal damnation or infinite bliss. Which is basically, another after life.
You're probably wondering what this topic has to do with being a Born Hater. Well, have you ever heard of the saying, " live like you'll die tomorrow," or as if there was no tomorrow. The more you start to accept that perspective of life, you feel eager to live as a better person, you consciously want to become someone, who betters their life, because who wants to die with regrets. There is already enough regrets as it is, from the moment you wake to the moment you fell to sleep, so why would you want to intentionally add on more regrettable situations to the timeline of your life?
If you've lived your life as a hateful, corrupt, hypocritical being, who has no interest in changing, then you off-course, are going to die like one. Whether you believe in the afterlife, reincarnation, heaven and hell or just dying and nothing else, you still had a worthless life. A life filled with hate and anger. Those people who fit in this category and don't want to admit it to yourself, just know that from the moment unknown forces decided on your birth, you were never owned anything, just like, you don't own anyone anything. Why do you think that we are born alone and die alone?
The reason I point this out is because, people conscious or unconsciously, always act like they can dictate someone else life, or that people own them something. Simply to put themselves on a pedestal and act superior. Power, greed,envy, pride and ego, controls these individuals lives. They never think of tomorrow never coming, they expect tomorrow to always come for them. Many die an unsettled death and continue to roam this world as if they still live with the living. If you believe that sort of stuff, which has some amount of truth- unless you are the type who thinks we are the only living being in this universe and dimension, and that we were specially chosen by the All Mighty to create and rule.
That is a Fantasy. Just like the fantasy, that you will live forever, or that you are invisible and indestructible. If you haven't yet changed your mentality on death, or many regrettable things in your life, you still have a chance. You will always have a chance, up until death or beyond the grave. Just change your mindset and forgive yourself. Forgive yourself, before ever forgiving anyone, because you have to first be satisfied with yourself and the decision that you make. If you do not forgive yourself, forgiving someone else means nothing. I know that it is very typical to hear people say, "I'm sorry, I'll never forgive myself....etc." In reality, you should forgive yourself, because it is the only way for you to move on. If the other individual accepts your forgiveness, knowing that you haven't let go of the mistake and will continue to break yourself down, then they are selfishly accepting your forgiveness, and they don't deserve your forgiveness, because it was not pure and said halfheartedly.
You must live each day, as if it was your last and cherish every moment, as if it was your only. That way, life become worth living and your eyes will be open to the infinite possibilities that life has to offer.
