You can’t let people scare you. You can’t go your whole life trying to please everyone else. You can’t go through life worried about what everyone else is going to think. Whether it’s your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe and what you have. You can’t let the judgment of others stop you from being you. Because if you do, you’re no longer you. You’re someone everyone else wants you to be. Be you, that’s the most amazing thing you can do with yourself.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. CNBC never disappoints with anything. Shared this video because i found it informative. Watch it if you have 10 minutes to know little bit about London & Russian influence on it.)
Mama once said; “We don’t just entertain friends/relationships outta fun, we build them over time, we respect them & we keep them. That’s why never accept or serve discounted garbage”.
I was in my teen days. I was still getting pocket money from parents. I wasn’t able to understand those heavy/right words. I thought my mum was talking about not buying discounted clothes/stuffs or wasting money with friends during weekend trips. Most of my friends know i hate discounted clothes now too. In fact, i don’t have a single piece of clothing from any fast fashion brands.
Coming closer to my 30, now i am understanding that she told me not to hangout with people who have discounted/cheap personality/approach/attitude/mindset, It took me almost 14 years to figure out the real meaning behind those wise words. Being a MAN means progression of understanding, knowledge, acceptance & virtue while developing better habits.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Watch it to understand how your shopping habits are shaping a climate & humanitarian disaster. There’s a reason I never buy clothes from H&M, Zara, TK Maxx or any store/brand with 50% discount board. I buy clothes which cost at least a hundred quid or more, and i wear them for ages. They stay with me because, I know I have spent enough money to buy them. And i fully remember how much I paid, I have a photographic memory. Fun part is, I still have t-shirts, jackets, hoodies & sneakers from my 8th grade & engineering college days which fit perfectly even today. FYI, I am a sneakerhead & my love for watches is something divine.)
I don’t care about today/tomorrow/life/death/love/money/looks/clothes/sneakers. One thing, I am jealous of a “HAPPY HAPPENINGME” i met yesterday. I just want to pull that again today & each day of next 200 years.😜
It’s always more important what you give, not what you ask for. We all have spares in our lives, extra clothes, extra shoes, extra money, extra food, extra unused time, extra dullness surrounding own mental health. I mean we always have enough to give away whether it’s a material things or positive/negative emotions. We often have enough LOVE to share with other people.
As hard it may sound, most of our giving is not an act of generosity. What we give are mere excesses/extras. But we glorify it by calling it GENEROSITY. What makes it even more questionable is what we expect in return? It’s natural for us to expect equal reciprocation when we give. Balance is the name of life.
We need to give without expecting any return, when it’s LOVE. Expecting what we give as return means, taking back we gave. People start thinking so much about self respect & inflated ego. In the mix they forget what they really are. Stop measuring what you give & start forgiving before starting to forget. When you give, take nothing except the satisfaction of making someone HAPPY.
