I’M SICK OF IT…..a series of thoughts/questions I have …..4/11/12

For those of you who like to be philosophical, I am going to begin a series of questions that I have saved over the years of my life, so far. They are subjects related to human behavior that I am quite frankly getting sick of hearing about. You can think about the question and just move on, or you can actually offer your opinion on it. I am basically going to be thinking out loud in my head and then sharing what I come up with. Keep in mind, these are all just MY opinions. They are not directed at anyone in particular. Last time I checked, I am entitled to my opinion, right? So, if you like..please join in. If you do not, I understand. My first thought and question…….

Why are you always trying to get someone else to like you, don’t you like yourself?

My thought is, if I do not like who I am, I need to do something about that. I can listen to what others think, but I am the one who has to live with myself everyday. I want to get a good feeling about myself when I look in the mirror. I want to be able to say that I did everything I could possibly do to work out a situation in my life. I do not have time to try to figure out what the person next to me expects from me. I do not have time to worry that I do not speak proper English or dress the way the person next to me thinks I should be dressing. I do not have time to figure out why the world is the way it is and whyI am not doing enough about it. I do the very best I can, and I know that about myself. I do not have time to be the person that you expect me to be, I am just me. You can take it or you can leave it. I believe a person needs to take time with themselves and get to like who they are. The traits that you do not like, you simply list them and work on them EVERYDAY until they change to the way you would rather be. I just want everyone to believe in themselves. Once you do, you can do anything. So, start fresh. Sit down. Write some nice things about you on one page. On the other , write anything you think is ugly about you. Then, get started. With the support of professionals, you can achieve your goal. Just stay focused.

Believe in Yourself;

  1. Love the sentiment and advise provided…as one once said ‘believe in yourself…it’s all you got.’ Cheers!

  2. This is a very good post! I am always trying to be good at everything and be everyone people want me to be! Guess what, I end up failing at everyone trying to impress everyone, especially my parents! They have a way of making me feel like a failure constantly. Thank you, I needed this post just was fired, and really down. 🙂 Wish me luck!

    • I do wish you the best. Use your energy for YOU. Use your creative side for YOU. Focus on YOUR goals. Do this, and everyone else will be happy. 🙂 Do not be a stranger. As far as work, you will find another job. Try working temp in between. It is kind of fun. 🙂 It also might help you get a permanent job there. .

    • Things will change for the better very soon sir . All the best–

  3. Yes I like myself more than anything else (who else will bother anyway ) But the problem with liking oneself is that you will have to carry a mirror to see yourself If there is someone else who likes you he /( or preferably she ) will tell you that you are likeable and so on and so forth . One danger of others liking you is that they may dislike you at any time without proper notice leaving you disheartened – To put it in nutshell it is better to like oneself rather than expect others to like you –They are not duty bound to do that–They can invent any number of reasons to dislike you from any day of the week including Sundays, but you will not do that disservice to yourself–
    P>S There is something wrong with mirrors , they dont show me as I am —

    • lol Lviss, I LOVE what you wrote. I understood it all. When others make statements or remarks, where is the emotion behind the statement coming from? That is something that I think of. Since I am comfortable with myself, I find myself trying to figure out the other persons mood as they speak. 🙂

    • Oh Lviss, get rid of those mirrors and buy ssome that compliment you! lool 😉
