Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young,
but set an example for the believers in speech,
in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

We all just wanna be loved. . . . .not consumed

Isn't it the truth.  Regardless of where we are in life, who is in our life, what we are doing...bottom line is, we want someone to talk to, and someone to love us back. 

If a love you give is not returned, it's the worse feeling in the world.  

We all want a friend. 
We all want to be loved.
We all want to feel important. 
We all want someone to talk to. 

Part of being human, is communicating and fellowshipping with others - if we don't have some kind of connection with someone else we lose touch with the world, and start to think that nobody cares.  

Some things you can do to keep yourself in check with yourself and people around you:

It helps to surround yourself with positive friends...that is a big help.  Another thing you can do is keep a journal - write down all the positive, fun times you've shared with people in the past...keep reading it, even years down the road - it will keep your memory fresh with good memories :) 

Get involved in a good church, and if you can't do that...get a friend that can keep you accountable to read your Bible. 

Make a choice to be 100% devoted to God.  If you live in FULL dependence on Him, you are living the life of a true disciple.  

Become aware of your relationships.

It's important to realize the relationship you do have with some people, don't let life get you so consumed that you realize too late that you didn't spend enough time with someone. Don't let your relationships fall by the wayside. Life is funny in the way that it LOVES to consume us!  Put ur foot down now. Make the choice to NOT let life consume you. Remember, we are supposed to be NOTW. (not of this world) 

Stand out! Be different! Don't be consumed.
