I was watching ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, and right about the point where Hazel Grace says ‘ Funerals are not for the dead, they’re for the living.’

And that’s when I realized.

We’re all focused on what happens to us, we never stop to think how it’ll affect those around us.

We go through the journey that is life, thinking that it’s purpose is finding out how we end up.

But it’s about the effect we have on people.

If we ever get the chance to make some one’s life for the better, then isn’t that something that makes the life we’ve lead worth something?

Doesn’t that give our life a sense of purpose?

Obviously we need to put ourselves first too.

But what is life, if it’s all about you?
