>It's not about how many friends you have
>Or how accepted you are.
>Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone.
>It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date, how many people
>you've dated, or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
>It isn't about who you have kissed,
>It's not about sex.
>It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have
>Or what kind of car you drive.
>Or where you are sent to school.
>It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.
>Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, or what kind of music
>you listen to.
>It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown
>Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
>Not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everybody
>else thinks you are, or how smart standardized tests say you are.
>It's not about what clubs you're in or how good you are at "your" sport.
>It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and

>LIFE JUST ISN'T.
>But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.
>It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.

>are spread to.
>It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.
>It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
>It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and
>But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other
>people's hearts in such a way that could have never occurred alone.
>Only you choose the way those hearts are affected, and those choices
>are what life's all about.
>This is not your ordinary chain letter. Depending on how many people
