06: (Seen and taken from Facebook.) The first sentence you write in a book comes true. What do you write?
“In the end, you find yourself, and you realize that you are worth everything you put into yourself, not what other people say or think.”
The culture today is so focused on what other people think. Just look at social media.
I used to think like that, I have no fear in admitting that at all. I loved getting the feedback. After awhile, it was annoying because people thought of me in a certain way. “You’re so fun, why did you post something sad?” “You’re so strong, why are you being so negative?” And so on.
Don’t get me wrong. You got a promotion? Thumbs up and congrats! New baby? Heart and congrats! Engaged? Heart and congrats!
But when it becomes a “one-up” game, I don’t engage in that.
I am hoping to be a better person and I wish that for everyone else, especially when they’re putting in a fuckton of work.
