It would be so awesome if everyone on the planet realized just how special they were. There would be no need for a self-help book section in most stores. There would be no need to try and prove how perfect life is on your Facebook pages, or spend time editing your photos before you share them.
I want to live in a world where being different is not only acceptable but celebrated. I would like to live in a place where people could just relax, learn to be content ,and stop living in competition with people who really don’t care. That brings me to a question. Why try to keep up with the Jones (whoever they are) when they don’t really care what you do anyway? I am screaming to the top of my lungs, BE YOU ALREADY!!! Life really is short, why waste it trying to make people think you have it going on? We are all on this journey trying to do the best we can.
Self-help books are not needed here!
Another thing ,why are so many people wasting their life on social media, addicted to smartphones, and completely missing life? I don’t get it. Social media is overrated. I do not have am Instagram or any other time wasting, life sucking account. Yes, I suppose there are some benefits to having some of these. Yet, I would argue that people managed to do just fine before any of these were thought of. Additionally, if they were your real friends, they would have your number, know where you live, and you would have real interactions with you. I’m just saying we need to find balance and live life more intentionally, not through social media.
My soap box
I have gotten completely off subject. Let me get off of my soap box and continue. Where was I? Oh, BE YOU!!!!!! If no one else tells you, I am telling you now. You are wonderful, great, awesome, cool, unique special, and above all, loved by the Most High God. Stop comparing yourself to others already. You were not meant to live your life like someone else. Your life is uniquely your own. If you don’t want to wear clothes that match, go for it! So what if you put on white after Labor Day.
I am so sick and tired of the culture trying to put everyone in boxes. Jump out of the box, it really is O.K. Who cares about the latest/ hottest this or that? So what people!!!! Bigger is not always better. Maybe some people like old rusty vehicles. Maybe, some people like living in a small home and would really have no use for college.
People who learn to live simply tend to be more content and less stressed. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t live trying to please people. Stop allowing others to project their ideas of what is right and wrong on you. The Bible should be your ultimate source of information. Learn to think for yourself and have your own ideas. We have brains and it is probably a good idea to use them at times. I mean, I suppose they are there for a reason. OMG, this really drives me crazy, can’t you tell.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” – Matthew 10:28 KJV
Lastly, if people around you don’t understand, or get upset because you no longer want to live in the box, Oh well. I always say, they can go kick rocks with their shoes off. “They” are not paying your bills and have no Heaven or hell to put you in. It might sound harsh, but it’s the truth. As the old church folks would say, “Tell the truth and shame the devil” -NA’Arah
