The choices you make, the things you choose to do, the way you treat people. It all matters. But most importantly, you matter.
But I know that it might not always feel like it... You might feel like a cog in a machine at work and if you left today someone else would be there tomorrow. It might feel like you’re doing what you need to do to get by with very little time for anything that’s not immediately in front of you. No matter how you perceive yourself to exist in the world, trust me, you matter.
Your emotions are real. Your joy, anger, anxiety, and fear is equal to anyone else’s. And you deserve to feel more positively about your life. Your influence is real. Whether you realize it or not, the things you do and the example you set directly and indirectly affects the well-being of those around you. The world would genuinely not be the same without you. And most importantly, you have a purpose. There is a reason you’re put on this Earth in the exact circumstances you have with the exact history you have. You have a real role to play in the world and we all need you to fulfill it. Mark Twain captures this idea in an incredible quote - "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
This is not a one-way street - People want you to succeed. People want you to reach your potential and maximize your abilities in this world. In general, people are good and want what is best for you. Don’t lose sight of that.
In the grand scheme of things, everything we’ve come to know about today will be gone and erased forever. So either everything matters, or nothing matters. I encourage you to choose to matter. See the effects your good will has on others, create what’s on your heart, speak what’s on your mind, and help others have a more compelling and enriching experience as they go through the moments of their life. You’re in a position to do that in a really meaningful and significant way, because you matter.
