You should be like me

I've always wanted people to be more like me. I don't know why. I'm not all that great. I would picture the world and what it would be like if everyone believed what I believe and felt how I felt. I used to think it would be grand.

I just assumed that that's how the world should be. If people just thought how I thought we would see how wonderful life was.

I would live with that in mind. I would work to make people see what I saw. Of course, I always fell short. No one ever really thought like I did.

What I didn't see was that I wasn't helping to bring peace to a chaotic world, I was taking away a part of the little peace this world has left.

There's a fine line between wanting what's best for the world and wanting the world to be the best for you, but the former will always leave you in peace at the end of the day and the latter will always leave you in despair.

You should be like you and don't let me tell you different.
