Everyone is a Transformer

Do you remember the days when you would rush home after school to watch cartoons, or wake up early on Saturdays to watch TV? Voltes V, The Visionaries, Thundercats, Swat Cats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jem and the Holograms, GI Joe, has nostalgia hit you yet?

I used to be quite wrapped up in myself and didn’t care much at all about other people, until I realized that that’s not how one is supposed to go through life unless being alone is what you want.

My eyes opened when I watched Never Say Never, the movie on the life of Justin Bieber. I used to make jokes about him and mock him, and after seeing what his life has been like, how hard he worked, how talented he is, I stopped making jokes and realized, this kid isn’t just some manufactured star. He started from the bottom and worked his way to where he is now.

With people you meet, people you see, every single person in this world, everyone has a story. Everyone has their own problems. Everyone has their own victories. It is unfair to see someone and immediately make an assumption of who they are, without knowing what they’ve been through. I don’t want it done to me, so I will start by not doing it to other people.

It isn’t easy, and I constantly have to remind myself that everyone is a Transformer, there is more to them than meets the eye.
