One thing I learned later in life…That I wish I could have figured out earlier on is that people don’t have to like you. Its okay for people not to like you. That is completely fine. Not everybody is going to like you and there is nothing you can do about it. The sooner you accept that the sooner you can move on to more important issues. The fact is most people are trying too hard anyway. Trying too hard to be cool, to be liked, to be accepted. What exactly will that get you? A night in jail and a positive pregnancy test? The world is filled with try-hards who live to impress people. Then there are people like me who just don’t give a fuck if they’re accepted by society or not. I don’t feel that I have to prove anything to anyone but myself. What other people think about my character is completely oblivious to me…because I don’t care enough to actually let something small like that stop me. If I’m not accepted in the “cool” club that drinks and smokes their problems away, I’ll create my own club that deals with their insecurities instead of trying to cover them up. When someone criticizes my point of view I’m not quick to defend myself. I accept that they have their own perspective, but their opinion isn’t going to cause me to lose my confidence. That is how I choose to live my life. I’m a rebel by nature. I’m a leader. I don’t need to fit into the little mold that society gives me. I don’t drink or smoke because I don’t need to, I naturally feel good about myself because I’m living life the way I want to.
Billions are made off making people feel bad about themselves. Negative emotions are the biggest killer in America than anything else. Negativity kills more people than cancer. Then there is a big corporation that offers you the magic pill that will solve all of your problems. If you get a new pair of Jordans, or a new IPhone every issue with your self-esteem won’t seem so bad. So much money is being made off us feeling terrible…I figured out some time ago that society doesn’t want you to be successful, they just want you to be a unhappy consumer. Hell even most of your friends don’t want you to be successful, because it makes them look bad if they don’t do shit. It is literally you against the world. Its rare to find anyone who actually listens and understands you anymore, because they’re so caught up in their own opinion. Before you even finish speaking most people already have a rebuttal. Most people don’t say what’s on their mind in the present moment, they say what’s been on their mind but were too afraid to say out loud. Its all apart of social conditioning. So when somebody tells you that your life is boring because you don’t drink or smoke..What they’re really saying is that their own life is that way BECAUSE all they do are those things. Don’t take any offense…Just move on.
May God bless you.
