Create the life you want to live

Life is about building yourself. Don’t change your thoughts, actions, so that others will like you. People don’t have to like you, it is your life, your decisions.

You don’t have to let the shallow words of people limit you, or force you into doing what you’re against. Always remember, it’s not worth it if you are not HAPPY. Create a life that feels good on the INSIDE, not one that just looks good on the OUTSIDE. Happiness is a PURPOSE, and once you start living a purposeful life, you can confidently say to yourself, “This chapter feels really good.”

If no one seem to be clapping for you, for creating such a beautiful and amazing life for yourself, you mustn’t fail to clap for yourself. You should always be your biggest FAN/HERO.

You have to believe in your dreams, more than anyone else. Most people judge/evaluate you, according to THEIR ability, not YOURS. During those times, HEAR what they say, but don’t LISTEN. Stay glued to your dreams.

Life doesn’t require that we be the best, only that we try our best, for it is when we try our best, that we actually become the BEST.

You have MAGIC in you, and with that, you can be anything you want to be. I think you should send your ‘selfie’ to NASA, because you’re a STAR!


So, are you creating the life you want to live? Are you conscious of what you’re creating? Are you satisfied with what you have created?

When the motivational writer can’t seem to motivate him or her self

Negative situations happen almost all the time, you can’t avoid them, but you can choose to improve your outlook of life.

Once in a while, it is good to allow ourselves to be honest with who we are. It’s okay to scream:

I hate my job!
I don’t want to go on living!
I’m too fat!
I’m this. I’m that!
You can voice out your grievances once in a while, but don’t make an habit of it, otherwise it may ruin your life, or destroy you. Search for a solution, instead of whining all the time.

You don’t have to live life in a constant state of reaction to things that seem unfair. Doing so can be toxic for your emotional and mental health.

You find it so easy being a keyboard warrior, typing passionately and dishing out those “you can do it” lines. But as soon as life dealt you a single blow, pow! you’re right on the floor.

I know some of you have been through horrifying moments, that is why you’re able to motivate others, but nonetheless, it isn’t easy being at the other end, or receiving side.

As a motivational speaker, you find it so easy to stand on the podium, and motivate the crowd. But you find it so difficult to be in the place of the crowd.

How to build a stronger love relationship

In general, a man’s role is to be a provider/initiator, while the woman’s role is to be the nurturer.

Most people tend to get offended by the above statement, because they don’t understand how important the role each part plays in the stability of the relationship.

It is not about the man “lording” over the woman, but to make her feel secure and protected. When a man is able to provide a woman with a feeling of being protected by him, it allows her to feel safe in the relationship, and as a result, she will respect him, feel attracted to him, and love him for that.

Woman was made from the rib of man. She was not created from his head to top him, neither was she created from his feet, to be stepped upon. She was made from his side(rib)to be close to him, from beneath his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.

Do not abandon your partner in times of difficulty. It is necessary to give emotional support when needed. Also endeavour to support each other’s career/goals.

Never belittle your partner, be it in the home front or in public. Be humble and loyal to each other. Some women feel they can talk down on their partner, just because they earn a higher salary than them. The man on the other hand, might disrespect his partner, when he feels he has the right to do whatever he wants, be it good or bad. Pride can make people lose what could be the best part of their lives.

A woman can affect a man to take a turn for the better or for the worse, and vice versa. That is why it is extremely important to be mindful of our words and actions towards our partner. Be considerate, tolerant, and don’t fail to communicate your desire(s) to him or her. Voice out your grievances, instead of bottling them up.

Men also do get emotional and sensitive sometimes, and it is a common misconception that they do not confide their feelings in anyone. A woman should try to observe her partner, and reach out to him when necessary.

If a woman can comprehend a man’s thoughts and feelings, trust me when I say that woman must be a super-woman. This is possible because she is able to understand his mood and desires. These type of relationships are usually long-standing.

A man or woman shouldn’t view their relationship from the “dominance” aspect but from the “importance” aspect. A woman should be just as important as a man, in a relationship. They should respect and treat each other well.

Do you think a relationship should be 50/50? What do you think about dominance and submission in a relationship?

They say, in this world, it is either you adapt or die

Each time you look at yourself deeply in the mirror, you probably might ask yourself, what are the things that keep you going. You can’t find a reason that motivate you to keep on living.

What other feeling could be worse than that?

No matter what they do or say to make your spirit soar, you just want to die. If the mind is giving you a thousand reason why you should die, you must look for ten thousand reasons why you should live.

I know life can be exhausting sometimes, but you must find the courage/strength to keep on going.
One thing you should understand is, no one is exempt from the trials of life.

I know some of you don’t have the energy to do a bit more, to live. But you have to stay strong during those times. You must survive a little longer  each day.

Sounds painful, right?



I know you might have been stuck between life and death for a long time. I know euthanasia(assisted suicide)has popped into your mind several times, because you don’t have the courage to do it yourself. But the question is:

Is it really the only way out?

Your loved ones are trying so hard to help you, but all you really want is help with dying, not living. Whatever challenges you’re going through, believe me, it is possible to recover from it. Time is usually the answer. It takes longer for some than others. But you must remember, that life is only as good as your mindset.

Your life doesn’t have to be the sum of your problems. Don’t let your fears, insecurities and worries take total control over you.

Whenever you’re told “adapt or die” during your trying moment, you should have this in mind:

Even the darkest night will end, the sun will rise, YOU WILL SHINE.”   

     Always remember that!

If this world were almost perfect

If this world were almost perfect,

We would have…

More close families, and less big houses,


More good health, and less medicines,


More true friends, and less traitors,



More love, and less hate,


More time, and less time pieces,



More truth, and less deceit,


More sunshine, and less dark clouds,



More fairy tales, and less realities.



More faith, and less fears,


More peace, and less violence,


More joy, and less pain,


More open laughter, and less hidden tears,


One God, and less religions.

What is that misconception that people have about you?

Alternative conceptions (misconceptions) are not unusual. In fact, they are a normal part of the learning process. We naturally form ideas from our everyday experience, but obviously not all the ideas we develop are correct.
It is a general human tendency to cling on to one’s perceptions about right and wrong, good and bad, and so on, until an encounter or experience prove things otherwise.


There will always be many misconceptions, even in the face of evidence, showing who you truly are. You probably won’t like to invest your time, proving the fact of you being the way you are. You would rather invest more in getting yourself better at what you’re good at.
But do we have to rectify someone’s misconceptions about us?

You don’t really have to prove anything to anyone. If people think you will amount to nothing in life, based on your poor grades or past errors, just have it in mind you have nothing to prove to no one.
They will be amazed at how well things will later turn out to be for you.


Also, if we spend an unreasonable amount of time and energy trying to rectify someone’s misperceptions about us, we will be doing so at the cost of slowing our own progress.


Besides, most people will always believe whatever they want to believe, no matter how hard you try to make them see otherwise.


Some may say the process of removing general misconceptions can be achieved through more transparency in life, but there are limits to the things you can reveal.

You can’t disclose everything to everyone. Some people do value their privacy.


Common misconceptions


  • You can’t be a great talent, simply because you lost at the auditioning.
  • You wouldn’t amount to nothing, because you made some terrible mistakes in the past.


  • They think you’re gay, because you’re often found in the company of your male friends, and you hardly socialize with women.

  • Most people have a bigger picture of you. They think you are or will be this or that. Meanwhile, you don’t believe in the present, let alone the future.

  • Because you don’t or rarely respond to discussions or questions, therefore you’re a very proud person.
  • People think you have multiple lovers, because you have a lot of female friends, and same goes for the ladies.

  • They think you’re a very quiet person probably because you hardly contribute to discussions when you’re outside, no matter how interesting they may be.
  • Most people around you think of you as someone with no or very limited potentials, but they do not realise that someday your name might ring a bell in everyone’s ears.
  • People think they can take you for a fool, because you’re calm and gentle.
When they have misconceptions about you, how do you let them know the real you?
.
It would be silly to prove to someone what you are worth. They will simply find another reason to point out how well you boast about yourself. People will always have one thing or the other to talk about behind your back. So, why waste your time in proving them wrong?

Those who think differently of you should try to let you know, or else it will be their loss, because  they might not benefit from something they ought to have benefited from you, because they consider you unapproachable or unfriendly.

It doesn’t matter if they think differently of you or not, life goes on, you will live with peace of mind all the same, and move on. Good luck to them though.

How to live a happier life

Love Yourself

Your entire life is lived through your relationship with yourself. It is the most defining factor in shaping the kind of life you live.

The less you love/understand yourself, the more confused and frustrating your life will be. But the more you show acceptance and gratitude for the gift of life, things will become better in every way possible.

No one is without flaws, and we do exhibit negative emotions sometimes, but you need to learn to love yourself,
in a way that only you can.

Always Forgive

Have you ever been a victim of crime or betrayal?

If so, then you must know how painful the hurt can be, and how it can turn your entire life upside down.

    But is forgiveness an easy thing to do?

    No…

    It takes time to get rid of the pain, rage, hurt, bitterness. But forgiving someone who has offended you can be good for your mental health. It will help you stop thinking about the suffering you went through in the past.

    I know it is easier said than done, but let it go

    Do Good

    Don’t wait for people to be friendly. Show them how.” ~Unknown

    People all over the world are looking for someone they can relate with; someone who is willing to care for them, and give them a listening ear.

    Sometimes, we get drowned in our personal problems, and forget the neighbour next door has gone missing.

    You can always find at least one good thing someone has done for you.

    When your friend regularly call to check on you, due to that health issue you had. When that stranger helped you with your luggage.

    In spite of our trials and tribulations, we should always try our possible best to look out for one another. Let your kind acts be a reminder to someone that there are still good people in the world.

    Harm No One

    It takes a good heart, courage and love to keep true to your kind nature.

    There are always two choices in life, and it is either good or bad, right or wrong, this way or that way.

    We often make the wrong choices, even though we know the right one. There are consequences to life’s choices, so you must choose wisely.

    Humans need to be mindful of their thoughts, words and actions. Do your best to harm no one with any of the aforementioned.

    Don’t kill, destroy or abuse anyone intentionally.

    There is a thin line between good and evil, and it doesn’t take much for that line to be crossed.

      Stay Positive

      Negative situations occur most of the time. But how can we fight its effects on our life?

      Positive thinking helps us to remain stable, even in the midst of trials. Therefore, we are able to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
      Showing gratitude or giving thanks help a lot in this aspect of living a happier life.

      Even in the worst of times, most of us realize that we still have things in our lives for which we are grateful.

      Sometimes, it can be hard to stay positive in life, especially when you’re drowning in the waters of self-pity and misery.

      It is important to accept the change in your life, and find a solution to your problem(s). Find someone trustworthy who you could talk to about your worries; someone who understand what you are going through.

      Believe me, it is never too late to live a positive and happy life.

      Tomorrow doesn’t exist!

      We do not see things ‘the way they are, ‘ we see things ‘the way we are.’

      Most people put too much pressure on themselves, in relation to the FUTURE, when all that truly matters most is the ‘NOW.’

      The future doesn’t exist until it becomes the present, so why should we worry about it?

      Today, we live, but who can really speak of tomorrow?

      Focus on the present, instead of a non-existent future. I know you have got plans all lined up for the new year, but you don’t have to worry about them all the time, else you will miss the beauty/splendour of the present.

      Stop putting too much dependence on the future, which is under probability.

      I know some people do employ the positive thinking attitude towards the future, which is a good thing, but let’s be honest, what if you die tomorrow? That’s why it is very important to live fully in the present, because it is really all you have got. It is the only thing you’re conscious of.

      Right now you’re probably worrying about tomorrow, but you need to ask yourself these questions; Is “a tomorrow” guarantee? What if it is the last one?

      When teaching His disciples how to pray, Jesus Christ said “Give us this day, our daily bread.” He didn’t say give us these days.

      Most of us see life through our own mind, and this mind way of living often hide the truth from us.

      The mind tells you “Hey Mikey, you can’t buy those pair of shoes until next week, so you will have to postpone your happiness until next week, when you will finally get them.”

      So, you sit down and wallow in misery, until you get them. What a fatal lie! A kill joy!

      That is why it is important not to let ‘things‘ determine your happiness, or else the mind will gain victory over you.

      So today, I wrote, published, danced, cooked, because I know nothing of tomorrow. It is a mystery.

      Stop comparing your life with that of others

      God opens millions of flowers without forcing the buds. It tells us not to force anything, for things will happen in the right time.

      Just because it’s taking longer than others doesn’t mean you have failed. Stop comparing your life with that of others, and don’t let the negative words of people get to you. You should be able to live life on your terms.

      Your TRANSFORMATION PROCESS may be slow, but quitting wouldn’t speed it up. You have to trust in the process. One of the hardest test in life, is patience to wait for the right moment.

      If you understand TIME and SEASON, I bet, you will never envy anyone. Just because it’s not your season TODAY, doesn’t mean it can’t be yours TOMORROW. Don’t allow the SOCIETY drive you crazy with its FACADE.

      Walk, run at your own pace, and most importantly, BELIEVE in YOURSELF!

      Happy New Year!

      It’s 2020

      You might be sitting in your home, thinking about the things you ACCOMPLISHED and didn’t accomplish last year.

      Others might be worried or stressed out, because they felt they achieved nothing in 2019, and about upcoming challenges, and the UNCERTAINTY of the future.

      Majority of you all will CELEBRATE the beginning of the year with family and friends, gobbling at chicken wings and pouring drinks into champagne flutes.

      The destitute will probably walk into the new year, on an empty stomach, with a feeling of HOPELESSNESS.

      People are in hospitals, fighting for their lives, day after day. Some are suffering from what the doctors termed as “incurable disease.” People lose people everyday.

      The truth is, no matter how HARD or SWEET your life is, just try as much as possible to be GRATEFUL everyday, and stay positive.

      We look forward to a year of optimism and hope, achievements and resilience.

      HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      True happiness costs nothing

      Why put requirements on feeling good?

      True life is being given to us all the time.

      We just have to let it all in.

      True life costs nothing.

      You don’t need that brand new car before you will start feeling happy.

      You don’t need that million dollar house in order to feel fulfilled.

      Why put a price tag on your happiness?

      You don’t need “things” to be HAPPY.

      Being FREE is in your head.

      Your past mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you

      Life is too short to worry about what others might think of you, due to your past mistakes. You’re so much more than the worst mistakes you have ever made.

      Don’t feel bad about making mistakes, It is part of life. But don’t make the same one TWICE. The most important thing is to learn from them, and move on.

      Some of the most painful things we have experienced, usually TEACH us the most.

      Sometimes, in order for things to go RIGHT, they have to go LEFT. You must DIE in order to be REBORN.

      Often, we look back at these mistakes, and thought to ourselves, how could I have been so naive and stubborn enough, to do something that ended up hurting me?

      Don’t let the judgemental comments of people regarding your mistakes bring you down.

      You’re a better person now, because you have learned to let go of friends who are only there because of what they can get from you. They do not care about your wellbeing. They are only LOYAL to their want of you.

      People usually make mistakes a lot when it comes to their RELATIONSHIPS, be it marriage, dating or friendship. A few has to do with business decisions and the careers they choose for themselves.

      Learn from your mistakes, because at the end of the day, that’s all you can really do. Although some mistakes have greater CONSEQUENCES than others, but do not let them define you all the same. You don’t have to be a PRISONER of your mistakes. Turn every mistake into an OPPORTUNITY to GROW.

      Blogger Recognition Award

      I was nominated for Blogger Recognition Award by Lampelina. This means a lot to me, especially because I really started blogging not too long ago. I think this is a sort of confirmation that I’m doing something right/meaningful. And it is also a kind of motivation to do even better.

      Creating great content has always been fun to me, and getting feedback feels wonderful. I hope to touch as many lives as possible through my blog posts. So, dear Lampelina, thanks once again for the nomination, and your nice contributions on my blog posts . You’re amazing.

      Rules

      1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

      5. Select up to fifteen bloggers you want to give this award to.
      6. Comment (or pingback) on each blog to let them know that you’ve nominated them, and provide a link to the post you’ve created.

      How I started my blog

      I created my blog in 2017, but abandoned it for some time, after publishing my first post, because I felt I wasn’t quite ready, and was kind of preoccupied with my studies. I really started blogging late 2019, precisely on the 17th of November.

      I love putting stories together and producing great content. It gives me joy to receive positive feedback from readers also.

      Passion is also very important. It is good to have a deep love and passion for blogging, so as to be consistent.

      My nominees

      Here are my nominees:

      Why do most people hate their jobs?

      I hate my job! Have you ever said that?

      There are a lot of reasons for being unhappy with our job, and it is usually a combination or variation of the following:

      • Not being appreciated at work
      • Poor benefits/salary
      • Horrible bosses
      • Long hours/too much stress
      • Not fulfilling

      Is your job giving you health problems?

      Most people do not have career satisfaction. We spend most of our time at the workplace, so therefore, people like to be respected and appreciated for their effort.When we aren’t happy at work, other areas of our life suffer. People usually end up depressed, sick, divorced, etc, because they find their careers unfulfilling.

      Employees like to know their hard work is appreciated, and that may come in the form of praises, benefits, and higher pay. If they aren’t receiving any of these, they might not want to continue working for that organization.

      People want positions where they can have both CAREERS and PERSONAL LIVES. Their social life is just as important as their job. In as much as people want financial freedom, they also want to have more control over their time.Employees don’t necessarily hate the organization or company they work for, as much as they hate their boss. Most employees want a boss they can easily relate with, someone who listens to their opinions, and who will be impressed with their hard work/ideas.

      I think people who don’t like their job should look for another one, especially one that brings more happiness and satisfaction. I know it is easier said than done, but believe me, it is better than being miserable in your current job.

      The struggles are real

      Life is only as good as your mindset. Consistency is harder when no one is clapping for you. But you must clap for yourself during those times.
      Champions do not claim to have had a smooth journey for the most part of their lives. If you are told you will never amount to anything, you must shake it off, otherwise you will truly become NOTHING.

      As long as you don’t see yourself as low as they make you seem, you can take a little step forward.

      A day will come when those who do not believe in you, will see you, and wouldn’t believe it is you.

      Those you see at the top had their fair share of STRUGGLES also. But they became champions, because they had a desire/goal, which was stronger than the bad energy they experienced, and they worked tirelessly towards achieving that set goal.

      The moment you start acting like life is a BLESSING, it starts feeling like one. There are people out there who had it way worse than you do.

      So, no more regrets. Those challenges was a part of your GROWTH PROCESS. You’re wiser and stronger now. As the struggles are real, so also will be the BLESSINGS.

      ,

      What is your purpose in life?

      This question is very common, but it makes you think about what you truly want.

      The answers are usually a variation of the following:

      1. Making a positive impact on the lives of others
      2. Success
      3. Having a huge influence on the world

      What makes you happy? Could it be:

      • Your job?
      • Your family?
      • Your hobbies?

      You need to give more thought to these questions, so as to be certain of your answers.

      I know you might be thinking being wealthy, influential, famous, and making a positive impact on the world sounds fulfilling. But you may realize after achieving all these things, you are still feeling INCOMPLETE and UNHAPPY.

      You’re feeling this way, probably because in the process of fulfilling your LIFE PURPOSE, you have had to sacrifice some things, like:

      1. Spending time with your family
      2. Dating
      3. Vacation
      4. Going on holidays with your friends

      Often, we find our purpose along the way. Finding a purpose doesn’t require you to ‘THINK‘ but it requires that you ‘ACT‘.

      It’s good to try NEW THINGS also. stop resisting the UNKNOWN.

      A combination of your passion and daily action will lead to a purposeful life.

      Living a fulfilling life entails working, but not suffering. If you love your job or hobby(s) you wouldn’t see it as suffering, because it gives you great joy/happiness.

      That’s why it’s important to discover your purpose.

      Be clear about your life purpose. You can’t experience true HAPPINESS as a rich, busy SURGEON, when probably your life purpose was simply to write books, and spending quality time with your family.

      So, go ahead, discover your life purpose if you haven’t, and be CLEAR about it.

      There will be bad days, and they will end

      The two hardest tests on the spiritual road to TRANSFORMATION are the patience to wait for the right moment, and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.

      Nobody is exempt from the trials of life. Sometimes, we go through the WORST, to get to the BEST.

      But we can always find something POSITIVE in everything, even in bad times. Believe me, you deserve the love you keep trying to give everyone else.

      A day will come when you will bloom out of the MUD you are buried in. The broken pieces of your life will be put back together right in front of the person(s) who broke you.

      And most importantly, don’t be afraid to start over. It gives you a chance to build something even BETTER.

      Wealth is in the mouth of the Lion, can you risk grabbing it?

      The willingness to take risks is crucial to success. Money resides right in the lion’s mouth.

      Risk is a necessary element of life, and also in the business world. When undergoing a business venture, most especially investment, there is always the chance that something won’t work out for us.

      For our financial life to grow, risk is necessary. Fearlessness is required, regarding business strategies and implementation of business plans.

      Risk-takers love to take a chance. People who avoid risks are most likely to miss out on returns.

      We are often rewarded for taking BOLD STEPS. The greater the risk, the greater the reward.

      Most people are unable to experience TRUE WEALTH, because they prefer to PLAY IT SAFE.

      So, in order to get on the road to wealth, be ready to have some sand in your sandwich.

      We ignore truths for temporary happiness

      Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside. Happiness is not about having what you want, it is about enjoying what you have.

      We ignore truths most of the time, and chase things that can’t stand the test of TIME.

      The Truth: Don’t let the mind hide True Life from you

      Questions brings answers

      True life is being given to you all the time. It is free and always available. The ultimate goal is always to live in the truth

      Answers brings truth

      Don’t believe what anyone says, but search for the truth yourself. Those who do not care to seek the truth, will be lost, by getting caught up in the complexities of life.

      The truth brings freedom

      Why believe in something you can’t check for yourself? The truth brings freedom from IGNORANCE, CONFUSION. The truth brings unity and love, not divisions and hatred.

      There is abundance of life everywhere. You just have to open your mind, in order to SEE and FEEL it. That is the secret.

      Trust gets you killed, Love gets you hurt

      The painful thing about betrayal, is that it never comes from your enemies. No matter how good you are to people, you can never control their LOYALTY.

      Nothing hurts more, than being disappointed by the person you thought would never hurt you.

      Betrayal darkens the soul, creates pain, anger and bitterness. To some, it is worst than death, and increases the number of men and women suffering just to find true love.

      When someone betrays you, it is a reflection of who they really are. Regarding heartbreak, it is never easy to let go.

      The worst feeling in the world, is knowing you have been used and lied to, by someone you love and trusted. But they might be part of the PLAN and PROCESS, in getting to the PROMISED LAND.

      But you have to learn to FORGIVE. Sometimes, a good heart doesn’t see the bad. Be strong enough to let go, but not dumb enough to trust that person again.

      If you could be anything, who would you be?

      I would just be ME. I have heard people say “The best version of myself.”

      But I do believe if you skip the work or lessons you have learned to become that version of yourself, it is likely that you will still hold onto old habits.

      I wouldn’t change a thing in my past, because those things actually made me a better person.

      And I think if we can see the future, and have the power to change it, we shouldn’t, because we can’t learn from it if we miss it.

      My Thoughts: Church of Satan’s response to a Nigerian man who wanted to join the Illuminati

      The Church of Satan on Twitter replied a Twitter user, who reached out to them, over how to become a member of the Illuminati, adding he intends to get rich.

      In response, the organization advised him that ‘Illuminati’ basically means ‘enlightened’ and as such he needs to educate himself.

      Below is their exchange:

      The first time I came across this post, I thought to myself; some people can be so DUMB.

      The devil is already looking for who to DEVOUR, and some people are willing to be the PREY. I think GREED and IMPATIENCE make people do CRAZY things. Well, he got what he deserve.

      This goes to show that the devil esteem knowledge and wisdom. Although he is pleased to see people living in IGNORANCE, but that doesn’t mean he want those kind of people in his INNER CIRCLE.

      But the amusing part is, those so called ENLIGHTENED people working for the devil, are also IGNORANT, because they’re also being deceived, and led astray by the devil.

      I guess this is what happen when people chose to ignore the words of God. In the conversation above, the man was simply told to do the exact same thing God instructed us to do, in order for us to acquire wealth. The devil referring him back to those words, goes to show how foolish humans can be.

      So, if you want to get rich, just follow the instructions of Satan in the above tweet.

      Don’t let the things you see on social media, kill your self confidence

      One of the greatest harm you can do yourself, is to go on social media, see the GLITZ, POMP and GLAMOUR, displayed by other users, then beat yourself because you feel nothing much is happening in your life. The truth is, things are not always what they seemed to be.

      After high school/university, we see our course mates, friends and peers on social media, and wish to have the kind of life they are living. We’re amaze at how well things are going for them, and even up to the point of envying them. We notice their clothings, skin tone, cars, wigs, and marvel at how far they have gone.

      We constantly compare ourselves to them, dying to be in their SHOES. But then, my friend, remember all that GLITTERS is not GOLD!

      Social media has become a PHENOMENON that reminds us of how far behind we are, when compared to our friends and age group. The unspoken TRUTH is, everyone displays the BEST part of their lives on social media. You might actually have more financially, and living a fulfilling life, when compare to most of those ‘FAKES’ and ‘SHOW OFFS’ out there, who has airbrushed the hell out of their photos.

      I have read stories of people, who had committed suicide, as a result of having few or probably no ‘likes’ and ‘comments’ on their social media pages. So my guess is, they had nothing to live for, except for a few Instagram likes.

      You don’t need a big butt, flat tummy or broad hips and all high fashion, to be ‘dripping’ or as hippies also call it, ‘on fleek.’ Just be YOU!

      Note, I’m not trying to criticize anyone, or saying you shouldn’t display whatever you want to display. All I’m saying is, keep it REAL. I know some people consider being real to be boring, but it’s not.

      The most important thing you must always remember, is that you’re only in COMPETITION with yourself, and no one else. Don’t take the things you see on social media TOO SERIOUSLY, because things are not always what they SEEM.

      Bridging the gap between mere existence and true life.
