Latest Attempt to Answer That Age Old Question...
There is no truer statement, at least to me, right now at this point in my life, than "life is what you make of it."
We have always, as people, questioned the meaning of life only to never have an outright answer. But since humanity is generally about individuality, each person gets to decide, for themselves, what their life is about, whether it be helping others or pleasing themselves.
Some believe that we dont have the right to impose our beliefs upon others, and while this statement is mostly valid, the real truth is that in all fairness to others and their lives, one's life and beliefs shouldnt bring harm - emotional or physical - to anyone other than themself, unless explicity asked for or distinctly implied.
