what i wish.

What I really wish more than anything, as ridiculously cliché as it sounds, is that everyone around me could be happy. Especially with certain individuals, I have realized that seeing someone I care so much about to be unhappy, or lonely, or hopeless – it makes me unhappy. I read somewhere once that caring about someone is having your happiness be dependent upon theirs. I find so much truth in this quote, especially regarding things happening in my life recently. I wish that others could see how beautiful life can be. The other day, when my heart was breaking, it was difficult for me to appreciate the way my life is at the moment. The day after, however, I realized how foolish it was to have thought that. Even with a broken heart, it is clear to me that the world, that life, is amazing. (sent in by Alyssa Ioannou)
