    Human emotion is everything we strive to

    understand. Surrounding ourselves and sharing of ourselves with all that seek, is a reward without a trophy.

    If someone lets you into their world understand

    and value that to them it's a big deal. If it's not a big deal to you then you don't belong there.

    Adore Them

    I really do. I think most people are genuinely good, but I guess sometimes they don't know how to show it. That's why when I meet someone who is polite and courteous, I try harder to try to get to know them. Those are the kind of people I want to be friends with. Those are the...

    Pain Sucks

    I don't like hurting. I especially don't like hurting over something that could have been avoided or was intentional. It really bothers me to think that some people truly get off on that. It doesn't make any sense to me to purposely inflict pain upon someone just because you hurt...

    Its beautiful to understand a concept

    or a person without having that negative inclination of pure sadistic sarcasm. I think the saddest thing would be the frequency of such subtle moments of happiness are very low.

    It's rare to find decent people anymore.

    Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone being kind, funny, and humble to other people. It lets you know in this messed up world that good people still exist.

    Goodness

    Goodness is an attribute to aspire to. Kindness is a constituent of this as well. Good people do not ignore the ills of bad people, but seek to challenge them, or change them. Good people seek a better world. A better world will be established only by moral exactitude...

    I like people who can leave an aftertaste.

    When you come back after meeting with them, you have something to think about, you feel that the time spent together wasn't vain and you feel joy inside.
