There a lot of words in English dictionary that starts with the word SELF.
for example: SELF-CONFIDENCE , SELF-ESTEEM, SELF-RELIANT, SELF-EFFICACY, SELF-EFFICIENT, SELF-DETERMINATION
In short all of the words you can think of and then put a self in front !
Or what I like to call them all the SELF-ish words !
I have met a lot of people who qualify in many of these fields and some do extra-ordinary in them
but there are a lot of people who don’t !
And personally I do have some of those self-ish qualities and I do lack in some of them !
And I am not going to bullshit you by saying its ok !
We all have gone through our fair share of problems, some more than the others
and we have more shit to go through.
Therefore I think its better to have every weapon in your arsenal,
metaphorically not literally !
We try to overcome our shortcomings but sometimes we are just too involved and devoted.
yes, really !
I know you think we should actually be those things and achieve something but how much of an involvement is better ?
Because there will be times when we have to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves out and I am pretty sure I don’t want to be crying at that point and embarrass myself more !
And when we are too involved we tend to make everything personal and in the process lose some traits that we already did possess like the feeling of self-worth !
And some that don’t even try are either very lazy or just don’t think that it will be worth it in the end.
I have learned something during my process of becoming SELF-ish.
and I am going to share it with you.
- Surround yourself with good people and if you don’t have any in your life find new ones because the world is not exactly doomed.
- Be selfish at times when the situation warrants it because it is needed !
- Have faith !
- Don’t become too attached to the cause because then you would just want to quit every single time you fail because you don’t want to feel the failure !
- Except things and have the ability to move on !
- Fight until and unless you come out a winner !
- And enjoy every moment of it whether its ups or downs !
Live and Let live.
Love everybody !
