In life, and relationships I think it’s so important to be around people who have common interests, similar characteristics, otherwise… what on earth would you do together? But I also think that its even more important to have your own identity, your own likes, your very own interests and things that you do just for you. Who are you if you don’t? You can’t be like everyone else, because everyone is so different from each other. To be honest I don’t even know why you’d want to be like everyone else, how boring!
That being said, we all wish that we were like someone else, had something that someone else had, looked like this person, was funny like that person. Etc… It’s super hard not to wish those things because we all want to be the best we can be, and when we see someone else with the strengths we lack, we are jealous and envious of those things.
It’s interesting to me that when you quit caring about being like everyone else, and you start doing things for yourself, that those I Wish dreams seem to fade into nothing. It’s almost as if the clouds clear and you can finally see purely just who you are and what you really want.
I used to wish so badly that I could be straight like all of the other guys in my graduating class. That I could play sports just like they could, that I could go on dates and kiss girls and all that. It wasn’t till I started being my true self and focusing on me that I realized that everything they had, I didn’t really ever want in the first place, I don’t even like girls or want anything to do with them romantically or sexually, so I don’t really know where that came from, I loathe sports, and would never want to play them. Let this be an example to you, Try not to fall prey to the pack. Be your own person, you might just be pleasantly surprised at just how much you have to offer. You can stop wishing. There really isn’t any need, cause you can have it all if you want it bad enough. If it’s important enough, you’ll find a way, if not, you’ll find an excuse!
When we are constantly wishing for more things, we overlook that which we already have. We all have this greatness inside of us, but no one would ever see it if we keep it locked away inside of us. What good is talent, style, or potential if we never do anything with it? #Waste
The grass is never ever greener on the other side. Its always greenest where you actively water it. The grass that dies the fastest is that which never sees the sun, so If you want something bad enough, do something about it. And let the sun shine in a the places you’ve stood still for so long, and do something else. You might be surprised just how green the grass starts to get, where you once thought it was so ugly! Nothing will ever fall into your lap… So suck it up and work hard. Set goals, and start with small ones — achieve those, and then keep going. The devil is in the details and the championship is won with millions of small victories! Rome wasn’t built in a day… And neither were you! Stop wishing! And take action! Just remember to be extra careful what you wish for though, because you might not get it, and it could be all for your benefit.
It was for me!
“I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
‘Cause if I want you, I gotta have that
I wish I had, I wish I had, I wish I had”
Can you guess what song I’m listening to? 🙂
