So, one day I was looking at this picture of a celebrity and telling my friend I wish I could be like her. Pat came the reply – why do you wanna be like anyone. You are so good yourself. Just be you and be in love with yourself that’s when the whole world will fall in love with you. I was taken aback by such a strong reaction from my friend cos I had always assumed that he would concur with my every thought. However, what he said stayed with me. I wondered how easily we fall prey to someone else’s make believe world and forget that each of us are so unique in our own way and THAT is our biggest gift.
All this Digital influx has made things even worse cos I often see people (yours truly included) checking out Insta accounts or FB accounts and wanting someone else’s life. Little are we aware of the battles being faced by that other person. For all you know they might be wishing the same checking your pictures You see, the grass is always greener on the other side!!
Of course we need Inspirations & Motivations cos that makes us strive to be better or do better. But just let it stay at that – an Inspiration. Do not wish to be that person or Duplicate him.
Make your own rules. Be spontaneous, Be crazy, Be lively, Be classy, Be Awesome, Be daring, Be stupid, Make your own mistakes…Make more.. but learn from them. It’s your own burden to carry but most importantly
BE ORIGINAL… BE YOU”
