Rise up


So I was going to write a piece about gaming, but last night another topic came to mind. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had someone very close to me drive themselves in a dark hole. A hole filled with so much darkness, they have drove themselves mad. The sad thing is this person is the same age as me, we happened to only be born three days apart from each other.

Naturally, we are close, real close, at least we used to be. They have jumped onto a broken path, filled with destruction. So much, that family doesn’t seem to matter, not even the ones closest such as parents, and children. So what do you do? You try to talk sense into them, only for their stubborn side to show.

You get pathetic excuses: “You have no idea what I’m going through”. “You don’t care”. “You hate me”. “I’d be better off dead”. What does that sound like? A teenager to me, this person just turned 25 by the way.

I honestly take a step back and remove myself from the world everyday. For the simple reason of looking at everything that goes on. Murders, physical and psychological abuse, rape, we could keep going, you get the idea. The issues that people surround themselves with, or want to, makes no sense to me.

I’ve always been a person who has been laid back, jolly, just being a naturally happy person. My patience is extremely high, and I couldn’t tell you the last time I got angry or sad over something. This has sadly brought the title of being cold hearted, or even ruthless, given to me by my family. They joke about it, I laugh about it. Does it bother me? Nope. But, it does bother them.

The thing is, I see no need for feeling sorry for most people. If your a war vet, you got physically wounded, yes I’ll show compassion. That goes with a lot of other cases just like that.

I am a type of person who goes to a funeral and jokes around, laughing about the good times I had with that person. Shedding tears isn’t something I commonly do, even in the most severe cases. Does this make me a cold person? It might, I simply do not know.

I will tell you my mindset has keep me carefree, stress free, and full of joy. I heard something when I was real young:

(Do not fret over things you simply can’t control).

I can’t remember where I heard it, or who said it. I will say it has been one of the best pieces of advice ever given to me. It has brought me out of the darkness that tries to surround me every so often.

People often get caught up in life, this little bit of drama takes hold. It grasps you with a trembling squeeze, and sucks every inch of life out of you. Only to drop you into a prison created in your own mind. Confining you to a life of sorrow, anger, and all types of volatile emotions.

It doesn’t take long to see this, only if you stop yourself to look around. I don’t think a lot of people understand what life really is. It comes down to each of us finding what really works. I call most people walking around a modern day zombie, yes a zombie.

Believe it or not, if you aren’t willing to actually try and live. You’ve already died, and may as well be a zombie. But in actuality you have no need to worry, because a little ball of light, always resides in darkness.


Don’t lose hope for anything, whether that be a dream, or a wish. The truth is it can happen, and will, only if your willing to work for it. Human nature it seems, has accepted everything must comes easy. Everyone ignores the truth, we work on destroying lives for others, we look for some kind of hack or easy way out of things.

Rise up and stop being stubborn, stop doing things out of impulsive nature. It can’t be that hard to stop and think about what you are doing, or what your actions could do to others. I can’t feel sorry for someone or a group of people who have thought their way into a depression. Nor can I say the same if you want to set on your pitty potty all day and cry.

Show people how great you are, try to better yourself in any way possible. This could be to look at things different. Encourage others around you to do something productive. Learn to draw, paint, sing, or even smiling at every person who walks by on the street. Too many people try and knock others down, when you should always be trying to lend a hand to someone.

Stay positive and stray from negativity, even if its certain family members. Don’t hide or run from failure, embrace it. Even if you get made fun of for doing it. Doing that only leads to you succeeding at what you are trying to do. It may take a year or ten to accomplish it, but I bet it will be worth it.

The greatest thing given to us is our brain. Use it, you should drool and go crazy for knowledge, not a piece of paper, or materialistic things. Its crazy to think about how many people have been killed over things such as money. Its also crazy to think about how people get swayed from doing something, because their peers look down upon it. I used to be that idiot, who made fun of the smart kids. Only to look back and envy them, because I wish I had realized the importance of it. Don’t be that type of person.

Life is really short, even if you live to 100, its still too short. I want my short span of life to be great, and so should you. We have no need to waste it on things such as alcohol, or drugs, or being violent. It really isn’t worth it is it? Is it important to go out and party on the weekends? Is that really what you as a thriving, intelligent human being value? Treat yourself with something that is actually rewarding. Try and wrap your mind around that, and just give it a little bit of thought.

I’m simply a blogger who enjoys video games and animation. I’m sure this want change anyone, but I felt its need to be said. The sad part is, the few who actually read it, will end up forgetting every word five minutes later. Then go back to doing everything I’ve spoken about, if your that type of person. If not, then we need more of you in the world.

    Hope you can keep that attitude – people slip into darkness for many reasons –

  2. I hope your friend gets the help he needs. Of course what he is going through must feel terrible, but your position isn’t fun either. It’s tough to watch it happen to people you love.

      • It really is. I’ve seen it happen to people close to me as well. Two of my sisters need help like that, but I don’t know how to except by listening to them and telling them I love them no matter what.

      • That is really the only thing to do. People tend to get caught up in things. And the situation whatever it may be drags them along.

        The sad thing is, this situation with my cousin is still going on, with no end in sight. I guess its time to just set back and see how things go. She will not talk about it, so I don’t know what else to do.

    It’s a real shame when people have these problems. What’s worse is when they cross that threshold from simply being in a rut and into a nearly inescapable void where they’re perpetuating their own misery, whether intentionally or otherwise. In other words, they choose the path of least resistance, even when it doesn’t benefit them in the long run. I know it’s not going to sound empathetic, especially not when presented as lines of text on a computer screen, but I believe that the burden of escaping that hole lies with your friend. I’ve heard from people who had to deal with depression that they needed to reach out in order to get better – expecting things to suddenly improve with no affirmative action is an unrealistic expectation. I know someone with very similar problems to your friend and I agree that dealing with others’ depression can be very tiring.

    • She does need to reach out, but simply want. That’s the problem, and its only gotten worse. She comes off in ways that a junkie not wanting to let go of their drug.

      Now, maybe this could be a factor I simply do not know. This person has had problem with alcohol in the past, it wouldn’t surprise me if they are hiding it.
