If I could say "it" this is what I would say...

I have a few things that I want to say to people that for various reasons I probably never will. I guess they all boil down to selfishness. Plain and simple. If people would just stop thinking about themselves and their own interests for two seconds, so many problems would be eliminated. Open your eyes and look around you. As great as you are, you're not the best. As hard as it's been, it could have been harder. There is more to life than the limited scope you are able to comprehend. There are other people that are affected by your words and actions. People that you wouldn't even think would be affected.

Sometimes I wish I could just take people by the shoulders and shake some sense into them. Can't they see what they're doing to themselves? What they're missing out on? The hurt and pain they are causing. I'm not perfect. I'm selfish and I'm sure that I've hurt people that I had no intention or any idea of hurting. In those situations I wish someone would have said these things to me...made me realize the mistakes I was making. It would have been painful at the time, but in the long run it would have been so much better for everyone.

It's time for me to go. I need to leave, move on. I wasn't made for this place. It's like trying to put a square peg in a round hole...you can hit it and push it all you want but in the end it won't fit and if you manage to cram it in there, it is no longer a square peg and it isn't a round peg. It's a battered, broken remnant of what it once was and it is neither here nor there.
