People Are Worth It

There may be days when you find yourself annoyed with people. Where it seems like the only option is to stay inside and not face them. I get it. I’ve been there.

But, people, dear reader, people are worth it. I write sometimes for the sake of my future self so that he might see stuff and recall what happened then. What was important and what is still important. This I think I’m writing for the sake of every shy nerdy awkward person who’s ever felt isolated.

I want to tell them that people are worth it.

People are worth it.

For every moment of frustration, for every thought that if you could just be left alone, there can be a thousand ones, a million ones, that, taken and boiled down, sum up to people being worth it.

People are kind.

People are good.

Some are damn smart, too.

The news may cast it as a dark hellscape. Those shady places driven past, full of slumbering men and woman who the world seemed to forget, may suggest that the whole world is like that.

And, don’t get me wrong: there’s a lot of pain in this world.

So much of it.

But there’s also those who are worth it. Worth fighting for and protecting. Who smile when they see you. Who accept you. Goofballs and mischievous ones and those who have your best interest at heart even if it’s not always obvious.

And being willing to find them is one of the secrets to being happy. So find them.

If they find you—be ready to let them into your life.

People are worth it.

Never let yourself underestimate a good friend. And how important having them can be.

Like attracts like, and there are others like you. The thing about being lonely, I’ve found, at least now in our post-internet world, is that it’s always only existing inside the lonely person.

It doesn’t take much to solve. A phone call, a text, an email, or a video call away. That feeling of being unheard, unaccepted, I think it’s not so hard to overcome.

People are worth it.

People are not so different—people are not so complicated as to be inscrutable, alien, even if it might sometimes feel that way when someone doesn’t agree with you on something.

People can be wonderful. People, I think, are worth it.

And, always remember, that, for someone else, you might be that kind of person, too. You could be the friend that came out of nowhere and changed someone’s life for the better.

I’ve certainly had a few of those.

People are good.

People are worth it.

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
