There have been so many times that I have gone out of my way to buy something that someone else has or fix my hair a certain way because they did. When I look back that hairstyle didn’t work and what I bought, I never wore or used. It’s the impulsion of trying to keep up with those around me that I spend money that I really don’t have on things I do not ned. Is this the real human nature? Is this what life is cracked up to be? It’s nothing wrong with being different, but what is wrong is the constant judgement from others.
I look at other blogs, especially tabloid ones, and I look at what is written about celebrities and the comments that people leave. Granted, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it’s never okay to bash someone based off their income. It’s never ok to devalue a person based off your own personal insecurities. Yes, they’re in a position you’re not. You have the same opportunity to get there. Instead of complaining about what they’re doing, find your happiness. Worry about yourself. Stop trying to live vicariously through the pockets of others.
What people choose to do in life is what they choose to do. Whatever makes that person happy is their prerogative. People need to stop being worried about others are doing and find themselves. They have to find the happiness within. Talking and bringing down others is nothing but negativity and you will never prosper from that. Be who you are. Don’t gossip just because the next person is. Stay true to the person that you are and who you want to become, not who people expect you to be.
There will be doubters and naysayers that will do anything to see you fail. Again, that’s lack of self love within. When you truly learn to love yourself you’ll stop caring what others think and in turn uplift instead of downgrade. This is your life. You have to live with the decisions you make, not others. Do not be afraid to show the real you. If those around you can’t accept who you really are, it’s time to move on.
