“Self-pity lies to you about who you are and steals from who you can be”-Unknown
I have come to realize that in this life, we never really know what people go through until we understand it.
You can say that I knew God from a rather young age. My parents were both devout Christians and they taught my siblings and I, right from when we were young, the way of God.
This is not the conventional post on my blog. This is more like a personal-pour-out-my-heart kind of post and it’s going to be a long one.
Starting something new always scares me. I am one of those people that like to remain in their comfort zone but I realized that’s not the way to go when you want to move forward in life.
Do you pay attention to what you listen to?
“TV, movies, games and books are much like food – for your mind and soul”
Often times, I’d hear “be careful what you listen to and watch”, “be careful what your mind feeds on”. I knew it was true that what you listen to or watch could have effect on your mind but I never took it to heart.
I have heard that watching violent movies can make you violent or listening to music about violence, drugs, music that degrade women and even those that use profanity can have a negative effect on you. Always, I’d wonder how that is even possible. You know yourself, you know you can’t be violent, you know you respect women
We sometimes make the statement “I don’t care what people say about me” and the likes but is that true? I myself have said that often and even did a post on it. There’s no doubt that saying such helps and is liberating, it actually did help me. However, the truth is we care about what people say. Let’s admit it. What we actually do is we try as much as possible to not make what people think about us matter or get to us.
Every morning on my way to work, I see how some people drive on the streets and most times I’m like, if I drive, I will just be slowing down anyhow and I might just cause an accident. Even before I reached the age of driving, I’ve always been scared of driving. It’s amazing how people could manoeuvre through tight corners
“It’s my life”
“Just do it, live in the moment”
These are statements we make that in fact are not harmful. They sometimes help you become brave when you have thoughts about what people might think of you and so on. However, some people use YOLO as an excuse to live carelessly and recklessly. They make decisions that are selfish and unwise.
