Gotta believe in something

I don’t believe marriage is for everyone but I do believe companionship is.

I don’t believe in happily ever after but I do believe in moments of happiness.

I don’t believe in any right answer or right way but I do believe things work when they should.

I don’t believe religion is necessarily important but I do believe a relationship and/or spiritual connection is.

I don’t believe people are inherently evil but I do believe that good people sometimes do bad things. That bad things happen but good always prevails.

I don’t believe in soul mates but I do believe in two people willing to make something work.

I don’t ever claim to understand life. Things happen that don’t make sense. We do things that hurt people. We say things we don’t mean. Life isn’t fair. No one said it would be fair, or easy. It just is. And although I don’t believe in a lot of things, I gotta believe in something good. I gotta have hope. I gotta have faith in humanity.

I gotta believe in something.

What do you believe?

  1. I used to believe in soul mates, but not anymore! I definitely believe in companionship! Good people do bad things, but do they remain bad or can they be forgiven is the question? We read Fahrenheit 451 to our students and got into a discussion about right/wrong and if there were no rules! I think we have to believe in something, be in religion, right or wrong, good or bad because the world is already crazy. If we don’t impose some type of standards or morals we’d have entirely more chaos than we already do! Just my thoughts……….
