It’s a lot easier to blame someone else for our mistakes, with hopes to be free of the heart ache. We laugh, we cry, we smile, hoping that with time all will pass by. Reality remains a façade, slowly setting a pace for the ride of life in advance, all one can do is to always pray to avoid going astray. Even if we wallow away in the agony of the past, a time will come when we will have to forget all that. Clearly there’s a path we must all choose, let’s just hope it doesn’t lead us to doom.
You know, it’s really easy to criticize, point fingers and judge other people. I mean everything seems funny until the joke is on you. The same people that’ll scream ride or die are the ones that’ll run to hide when it’s time to fight. Maybe not Beyoncé, her beyhive is forever loyal, it’s almost like she’s royal. Then you see yourself getting disappointed where there shouldn’t have been feelings involved in the first place. If you think yourself to be the only one that has met monsters, take a number and join the others. How people easily forget the success when there’s a setback is almost poetic; if Jesus Christ could be betrayed by one of his disciples then all we can do is to expect it.
We often find ourselves putting our trust in people that don’t deserve it, how pathetic, maybe it’s just a habit? Not everyone smiling with you is a friend, it’s important to appreciate the people that stay with you till the end. This is a lesson everyone needs to learn, in fact this is a burden everyone has to bear. In reality, the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t.
It’s necessary to trust yourself in a bid to find yourself. If you can’t make a decision between watching x-men apocalypse and civil war then what are you doing? Little things like that do count, this breeds indecisiveness that if not contained can lead to something bigger. Soon after you begin to doubt yourself and question every decision you make. For me, I usually shy away from setting standards so I don’t get disappointed. I mean nothing ever turns out the way I imagined it in my head, like never. I am sure I’m not the only one facing that dilemma. But that’s wrong. It’s good to set standards and if things don’t go as planned, deal with it. Disappointments are healthy and honestly, that’s life. If you got everything you ever wanted you’ll be clueless on how to act when something doesn’t go as planned and what does that make you? I watched a clip of the Kardashians on the red carpet, and Kylie had a panic attack because she couldn’t walk the red carpet with Kendall and had to do it alone. In case you’re unsure of what you read, I’ll say it again, Kylie had a panic attack because she couldn’t walk the red carpet with Kendall and had to do it alone. See what I mean? In the wise words of Master Shifu, “If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be more than you are now” (kung fu panda 3).
Another thing is to believe in yourself. I know I already mentioned trust, but trust and belief are two different things. Let me break it down. You trust your choice of judgement about the course you plan on studying in school and believe in yourself to graduate with first class honours. Nelson Mandela believed that he could put an end to apartheid (racial segregation) in South Africa and he did; Barack Obama believed that he could be the president of the united states and now he is recorded as the first black president of the united states; Maria Sharapova believes she can defeat Serena Williams in the Australian open that’s why she keeps coming back every year to play her.
Keep believing in yourself and don’t give up because in the end all you have is you. Do what makes you happy and never settle for anything less than what you deserve. If you feel stuck, pray for insight and believe me when I tell you Jesus got you. Leave your comments below and let us know what you think.
