"Be somebody who makes everyone feel like somebody. - unknown"

Do you ever sometimes see people talking and another person then interrupts them, then they tend to stay quiet for quite a while? All I'd say is try to be that person who encourages the individual who got silenced to carry on with what they're saying. Make them feel like they matter, that they are important. A lot of the times, people may feel as though they don't matter, that they're not 'somebody'. Well, you can make that change. You can make people feel like they matter, and it can be sometimes as little as saying "Go on, carry on with what you were saying."

As much as I love this, I kind of, don't, because trying to become someone who pleases everyone will ultimately result in your own unhappiness.

this isn't about pleasing everyone though - it's about making sure not to make people feel insignificant. it's just about recognising people. did you read my description? for example, have you ever been interrupted a lot of times and in the end not bother talking because you feel like no one cares about what you have to say? it's just about letting people speak and letting people know they actually do matter - it's not about making sure to please everyone and putting their happiness before your own

Mhm. I read the description, & I understand what you're saying. 


But, I gave you my meaning of what I think this means. Even if yours differs. 

"this isn't about pleasing everyone though" 

Well sure, maybe not to you but to me, this is what the art is about. 

I do understand what you're saying. Still, even your meaning of the art, I still think can lead to unhappiness.

I love this one...I try to do it all the time but do fail I must admit, because it takes two to make it work and often times people think something is fishy here this person being nice to me, were so jaded anymore. None-the-less, I keep at it because it makes me happy to make this a little better world to live in..

Feels good to be in the exceptionally good part of deviant art for a change.

Some people think planting a tree is a life objective, but I'm sure you took that to a new level by planting hope and happiness in many people's hearts using your concept art.

Keep being awesome.

This is a lovely sentiment, and I do try to live by it.  I will say that this requires a mindfulness of others that doesn't always come naturally, and not everyone who steamrolls someone else does so on purpose.  I think sometimes people don't even realize that they may be stifling someone else just by being to eager to grab the conversation or attention, or whatever - it's just the way their personality works, and they don't mean anything by it.  All the same, it never hurts to take a mental self-check several times during an interaction and ask oneself, "Am I letting the other person know I value their contribution by the way I'm responding to them?"

It's meaning sounds quite like the Marianne Williamson quote I've shown you before. "Your playing small does not serve the world" and "We are all meant to shine, as children do" especially so. Have you in any capacity thought of it when working on your photoquote?

It is something I would certainly encourage. There is nothing to gain from suppressing others that you would proudly remember when you're about to die, which is the greatest measure of what you've achieved in life. Being with others, rather than imagining being above them, is beneficiary to everyone involved, as not only you learn of others' cultures and minds - beautiful things that expand your own view of the world - but also gain deep friendships that can last decades with the same passion.

Very, very true! I heard a quote from somewhere that has stayed with my quite a while and it was something about how everyone you meet knows something you don't, so you should stay humble and remember that you can learn from others :aww:
