You were not put here to impress others, to be better than others or to beat others at all costs.
You were not put here to compare yourself to others and your success is not dependent on someone else's failure.
You were not put here to put others in their place, to teach them a lesson or lecture them about who they are. You can and should help others but don't treat others like they're broken just because they're not who you think they should be - You were not put here to fix others.
You were not put here to rise above others. You are unique but not special and that's not a bad thing because it means all of us can achieve some kind of greatness.
Tôi vì ánh nhìn người khác mà thay đổi bản thân. Cuối cùng chẳng thể thành người khác, lại còn đánh mất luôn cả bản thân mình.

You are going to tell me this one's no big deal... but let me tell you about being lonely.
Humans are social species. We reply on connections to survice. Even the most basic social interactions help keep us alive.
Statistics prove the subjective feeling of loneliness can increase the likelihood of premature death by 26%. If it sounds like I'm quoting from a school textbook. I am. Too bad nobody bothered to read it.
And let me tell you... there is all kinds of ways to feel lonely.
I'm not talking the garden variety lonely in a crowd lonely. That's every one, everyday.
And it's not that "when will I find love" kind of lonely.
Or that "the popular kids are mean to me" kind of lonely.
The popular kids are always mean. That's how they get popular.
The kind of lonely I am talking about is when you feel you've go nothing left. Nothing. And no one.
Like you're drowing, and no one will throw you a line.
Well, when the subject of this tape worked his sneaky magic... that's how I was feeling. And when you're that kind of lonely, you reach for anything... no matter how silly it may seem.
Sometimes the silly things can mean more than anyone knows.
