The difference doesn't make me

I was just talking to a friend about The Earth hour, she said I had to turn off the lights but I didn't cause to be honest I didn't want to NO OFFENCE, also my laptop was dying and my mom was so tired that I just wanted her to relax a bit watching TV, after all we are moving out tomorrow and I probably won't have internet in a few days, therefore I won't use my computer.

Our conversation went off limits cause we ended mad at each other, she told me to Make the difference and turn off the lights and I said No, Each person makes the difference in their OWN way, and that if her way of making it, was turning off the lights it's OK but my way is by helping and advicing people, the next phrase she said was "You make no difference and you help anyone"

That last thing really made me mad because I don't like when people underestimate me and less if the one who is underestimating me is one of my best friends. My point is simple: It doesn't matter what you make or how you make it meanwhile is helping others, the difference doesn't make me, I make the difference in my own way.

SO don't feel bad if you didn't help granny cross the street! I bet you did something good in your life. haha

Do you think this is a stupid fight? I do haha

Have you ever had a really stupid fight with a friend?? kinda like me? haha

oh! and tell me also how do you make the difference! :D even though you also turned off your lights tonight haha!

Feel free to share it :D

Have you ever held the door for the person behind you? Or let someone go in front of you in line? Doesn’t seem like much, but it is helping other people and making a difference. Do you turn the lights off when you leave a room? Or look up magazine articles online instead of getting the paper version? Then you are helping the Earth and making a difference.

I didn’t turn my lights off tonight. I didn’t know about Earth hour, but even if I did, I wouldn’t have turned my power off. I make a difference in my own way, and I’m proud of what I do. You should be too.

As for me, I like to do random acts of kindness. Mostly things that don’t help people per say, but make them feel better. My favorite is paying for the person behind me in the drive thru, or buying a gift certificate and handing it to someone on the way out. I donate to charity, and contribute to food pantries. It’s not a lot, in the greater scheme of things, but it makes me FEEL good to make others feel good.
I pay my bills online, get my statements that way. I walk when I can, recycle, and pick up trash I see laying around. I do what I can, and I’m proud of what I do. You shouldn’t feel bad.

Hopefully this will blow over with your friend. Good luck.

thanks sooo much Devon! haha that’s what I’m saying!

Karen, I have mentioned before and I will state it again. You and your positive attitude has and will continue to make a difference to others. Your desire to help others is an admirable trait. I have done some teaching in my past and from experience I can assure you that there is no better way to know your subject material than to teach it. So in your helping others you are also helping yourself. It is a win-win situation. Now fighting with your mom isn’t a great thing but you are your own person as is she and you two will never see all things in the same way. One thing to keep in mind is if the volume goes up, all communication stops.
