If we start living our lives for other people, well we aren't really living, are we? Too often I hear how heartbroken someone is because they couldn't make some one "see." See what? See what YOU see, through YOUR eyes? Feel what YOU feel? You will waste every moment, every breath. You will miss experiences that are meant to be memories if you continuously make people SEE and FEEL the way you do.
Don't be heartless, be real. You can give people advice, you can be a shoulder and a friend. You can't be them. You can't make them stand up for themselves or make them take that leap to becoming a better person. You can only shine the light in the direction they should take. The rest is up to them.
If you live your life for others, you're going to miss your own.
