I Want to Make a Difference In the World

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25,307 People

    I always believe, wealth is relative.

    Anyone who is filthy rich is poor if he does not know how to share. And anyone who is poor is rich when he can still give. There are still people like it. In the final analysis, one can only be authentically rich in accordance to his ability to share or to give. The ability to...

    I want to travel and go

    so many places. I want each place to define me. My life until now has been like that, but I'm afraid I will be stuck where I am now forever. I am so desperate for new experiences, but I am hesitant when such chances come up. And when I do something, it's results seem to be non...

    Good morning. It's a bright,

    if cloudy one. But it's a new day and positive people will tell you that a new day means time for a new you. I'm going to take a slightly different tack this morning and suggest instead, it's time you started to learn to love the you that already is. Smile: You're awesome.

    I pray about this day

    and night. I pray even harder when I feel as if I have no purpose. When I feel that what I do is for nothing good. I admit that I need guidance. I am not aware of how my skills and talents are best suited to serve the needs of the world. I do not know how to achieve that which...

    “No one is born hating another person

    because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” -Nelson Mandela

    I have made a difference in cleaning up hazmat

    sites in the Dept of the Interior but then an accident at work destroyed my lungs and my career. Near death experiences and severe depression have taken me years to adjust to my new reality. But now I am trying to help at risk university students succeed in school

    I do not want to be famous.

    I do not want people to know my name. I just want to make the future a brighter place. I try to do this every day, one young person at a time. I teach middle school so I can make a difference.

    The work I do is pretty important I feel,

    helping restore the sculptures at the cathedral. Our heritage is important. Far too much of life is made plastic by the media, and popular culture. I guess it is making a difference, but I'd like to do more!

    I see the world differently now.

    I see people differently now. I realize people are so similar. They want to be happy. They want friends and a companion if they don't have one. They want to be wanted. Name one person that doesn't want that. Who doesn't like a nice meal? Or a warm smile from a stranger...

    I went to a restaurant today with my family.

    In said restaurant, a homeless person approached me and my dad and asked if we had a dollar or two. Unfortunately, I didn't have my purse with me and so I couldn't give him anything. But what makes me so mad is that I got scared of him. I looked away and I said that I was sorry...

    whenever I get the oppertunity. It's only 5 dollars for now (because my allowance is only 10), but I believe that amount you give doesn't matter that much at least I am giving and not keeping the money for myself or spending it on useless acessories I don't need. :)
