The real glow up isn’t proving the people from your past wrong. It is finally feeling so content and hopeful about your future that you stop thinking about them entirely. When you want to change your life in order for it to look different, and only that, you are still orbiting around the opinions of people who didn’t love you, and didn’t have any intention to.
A real glow up is authentic. It is lifting off all the cover-up bullshit and addressing the real problems. It is healing. It is changing, for good. It is, for the first time, prioritizing your heart over someone else’s eyes. The real glow up is realizing that you have nobody to prove wrong but yourself. (Not my words.)
There are tons of motivational videos which talk about taking risks & leave that 9 to 5 job to fetch your dreams. Most men see it, start something they wish getting their adrenaline pumped for exact 7 days & then give up whatever they started mourning/regretting what they lost after facing FAILURE. That’s how we lose some real people coming forward with genuine ideas/intrest/breakthrough towards solving problems. When you want something in life, first sit down & have a heart to heart conversation with yourself. Being real is way more important compared to being optimistic or persistent for that matter.
Let me tell you how I roll!! I am not a believer in this risk taking bullshit, bullshit because I have never done anything like this. I know myself & I take a long long time to trust someone/something. When my businesses & career are concerned, I only follow tried & tested methods. I must understand it fully before investing myself into it. That’s the reason I am aware I can/will do something better than others but I am never gonna do/invent something drastically new which isn’t present already. Does that make me an inferior person who isn’t interested to take risks!!? If NO, that’s good. If YES, even better because I have no time to give shit. I see myself growing as a person while feeding my bank account some good dose of benjamins everyday. Most important part is: I am HAPPY with what I do. Still suggestions & positive constructive inputs are welcome but accepting them will always remain my choice.
A bit about this boy/men adrenaline driven mindset I mentioned in first paragraph!! Challenge me to run 5km without stopping, bake a pizza in 20 minutes, design a stupid website like this https://demidum.best within 20 minutes to embarass my bestie bitch because of our previous day fight, do 100 push-ups or 50 pull-ups, skateboarding without wearing helmets or knee pads in southbank skateboard park, all these take bit of balls to pull off. Have I done it all?? My closest friends can answer this. You can challenge me to surf in rain or go deep inside sea till some shark bites my butt, all these adrenaline thumping moves portray a boy/men packs bit badassery because we have designed a society like this around us. Sometimes it’s totally OK to say “I CAN’T DO THIS” & save yourself from being stupid. (This shark biting butt & surfing under rain incidents already happened with me, that too for a challenge of 50 quids with a russie mofo. Ivan, fuck yourself).
We all must take self introspection bit seriously. That helps us in understanding limits of our strength & capabilities.
There are people who think someone will approach for a relationship & life will be all rose pink after that. We are living in the world where one swipe left/right, you meet someone. And next day that person is gone to someone else or better.
My philosophy is; I am building myself. I get along with strong headed or loyal heart people. The one who wants me will get me & not stop fighting till mission accomplished. Life is like 80% work & 20% rest bullshit. That’s how I roll. A romantic relationship is not the goal of anyone’s life. You don’t need LOVE to spoon or fuck. It depends on your morals how you entertain people. Build a TRUE amazing self before asking a stable secure relationship.
