Free To Be Me


You know, people are interesting creatures. We will try to hide all of our flaws, mistakes, failures, etc, but will be quick to share these same things as it pertains to someone else. It doesn’t even have to be someone we particularly dislike, we just like to be able to say we’re better than someone else. I’ve come to learn that people will talk about you and try to find things wrong with, believe the worst in you no matter what you do. With that being said, why do we care so much what other people think or say? We can say as much as we want that we DON’T care about anyone but ourselves, however, our actions say otherwise. We want to make sure we “fit in”. We want the latest phones, we want the best clothes, the nicest cars, the biggest houses, etc. and for what? Just to have someone else say how great you are because you have nice things? Let me just say here that I KNOW that isn’t the only reason people want nice things, I realize there are people who just want better for themselves, BUT what I’m saying is that there are numerous other people who are interested in these things simply to impress someone else. I think we should all take look in the mirror and evaluate WHY we want certain things, WHY we do and say certain things and make sure it’s for the right reasons. What are the right reasons? I’m glad you asked! The right reasons would be creating a better life for you and your family, being a BLESSING to someone less fortunate or help someone else who is coming up behind you. We should all strive to be our best and to live our lives to the fullest. Dress how you want to dress, get the phone you want to have, live where you want to live. You only get this one live and you’re going to want to live it being you not a clone of someone else.
