When does life becomes life?
Robert Frost once said, "And I, I took the one less traveled by. And that's what made all the difference."
I dare to disagree. Just because one took the road that only a few people have chosen, it doesn't completely mean he has made all the difference.
For once, difference can have multiple meanings. Perhaps, what he really meant is the fact that only a few people made the difference because they had the guts to refuse what most people decided to choose.
Perhaps there are far too many people who had chosen the same path that they actually failed to realize that they can make their own choices.
However, choosing a different path than what most people had chosen doesn't necessarily mean you made the difference. Sometimes, sometimes, it is standing up with your decision to make things right.
No matter what choice you make, no matter what path you are going to take, what really matters is the fact that you stick to your choice and fight for it. Because in the end, it's not about how many people took the same path and how many did not.
In the end, it's being able to make your own path. It's being able to prove yourself that life is not life if you are just going to float through it. Life is not life if you are only going to follow what most people are doing. Life is not life if you are only going to make a decision.
Instead, life becomes life when you finally get to decide what it's like to stick to the choices you made. Life becomes life when you fall on the ground, face first, cried but stood up again. Life becomes life when you've felt that deep, searing pain, heard that insurmountable silence, muffled a sob, and bite back a cry. Life becomes life when you finally felt that unfathomable pain but still decided to live. That's how life becomes life. That's how you make a difference.
