We are in a world where people live their life based on what conforms with the general opinion people have of them. We are in a world where people determine their relevance based on the Judgement of some other people. This however all boils down to lack of confidence; when u lack confidence as an individual, you constantly make the mistake of seeking people’s validation before you take an action. There are so many instances of situations where people strive to meet up with the perception of others about them; they continually strive and try to do anything that will keep them in the good books of other people. For instance, you should never think of yourself as a perfectionist and then constantly trying hard to keep up with that just because people tell you are just too good; see, no man is good enough! we all strive towards perfection. Perfection belongs only to God. Just always keep up with the habit of doing you and doing good and let go of any unnecessary pressure.
So many people also live life in compliance with life dictates; they just take and grab whatever life gives them at any point. They do not even want to sweat it nor stress it… they are so contented with their present state of reality that they are not even ready to stretch out their arms to reach more important things. This is pretty bad and we should as human beings cultivate the habit of not settling with whatever life throws at us; we should constantly strive to be more and to do more. Hey dear, there is a clear difference between settling for whatever life throws at you and accepting in good faith and even making the best use of what you get at a point from life. The former means staying in your comfort zone without trying out new opportunities while the latter means, making progressive efforts and then accepting whatever comes out of it. Darling, the point is just do not sit and watch, try out new things, progressive things! You should learn to always accept what comes your way and making the best use of it and in line with that which you want but not settling with it.
Additionally, So many people seek validation for every step they take which is pretty bad. They live their life based on other people’s terms and this is solely because their self worth is based on what others say about them. One major thing I keep clamouring about is the fact that we are meant to give up the habit of living our lives to please others. That is way overboard. You should never make the mistake of living life based on what people say or based on what you hear people say just so that you can please them. We should constantly learn to overlook the naysayers called pessimists; you should actually turn a deaf ear to whatever ingratitude they are professing; whatever they say about your character is their own opinion and that does not affect or change who you are nor affect the values you exude. The thing is there are over 7billion people in the world and you just cannot please everybody, it’s not possible! Listen, live your life your way and that should never be dictated by general opinion. It is absolutely normal for people to have one or two things to say about you. Accept all in good faith and they should only influence you if they are positive remarks.
Conclusively, Whatever you do in this life, make sure you do you. In a world where you can be so many things, please always choose your originality over every other thing because eventually, it’s your life!
