I believe that I am clueless. I believe that I have been wrong about everything
that I thought I knew about myself to this day. I used to think that I wanted to be the
best, but now I know I can never be the best because there is always someone out
there who is far better than I am. I believe that I am clueless because I am only human.
All humans are clueless. If people weren’t clueless, there would never be anything to
learn or discover. I am a selfish person. I am a selfish person because I want to spend
my money on new clothes, instead of giving to those who have none. Every time I
complain about the things I posses, I forget about those who dream of possession. I
believe that I am clueless.
I am clueless in the sense that I hurt others without realizing that I have. I admit
to saying, and to thinking vile and malicious things of others to feed my own satisfaction.
I admit to sinning, therefore causing others to sin as well. I confess, that I have
proceeded from my own knowledge, and have made clueless mistakes. I confess, that I
have listened to the wise, yet I have not heard them. I have learned many lessons and
have become someone better. But, It will take my entire life before I can become the
best person I have ever known. I believe that life is about learning lessons, and growing.
I cannot learn a lesson without making mistakes. I cannot grow without using the
lessons I’ve learned from making the mistakes I’ve made. Therefore, it is a negative
thing to try to be right all the time, and it is a positive thing to be wrong. What I see as
an advantage, could be a disadvantage to another. What I portray as a simple donation,
could be portrayed as a precious gift by another. What I see in another, could be the
path that I need to portray. I confide, that I am a selfish, clueless person.
I believe that I am clueless, because I am only human. I know that I will learn
from failure. I know that I will hate the fact that life is unfair, only to realize that it has to
be. I understand that I am going to be put down by one, only to be encouraged by
another. I accept the fact that I am vague and selfish. Overall, I am thankful that I am so
