Do you remember this idea I have started months ago? When I thought my comments are worth publishing as separate posts, especially when your comments are underestimated and they receive a big like without even a thank you?
Some bloggers still act the same but anyway I’m not saving my comments anymore, I still have plenty from the time I started blogging, where I spent plenty of my time reading and interacting. You can check the 4 previous parts if you want:
And the winners for part 5 are:
1- On gratitude and pursuing our dreams:
“They want something more meaningful, but they don’t pursue it because they don’t want to lose what they have now or they don’t really know what they want.”
This is the case of most people I guess, and then the fear that we might not be grateful of what we have but at the same time the fear to not succeed and then lose everything!
But there is also something very real that if we really want something badly, we would have made more efforts, or probably we do want it badly but we are terrified to do something so we convince ourselves that we are luckier than many people and that we should be grateful and satisfied and so…We give examples of people that tried and failed…etc…
This struggle between: “this is God will” and “NO it’s me, I haven’t tried enough”
But there’s a fact that people who realize their dreams and chase their passions are happier of course and those people never give up because they know exactly what they want and I have lot of respect for these people.
We have lot of things to be grateful for but we often forget them! Because most people look at what they don’t have and suffer instead of focusing on what they have! Therefore this is a vicious circle, they’ll always be unhappy even if they had what they want, because they’ll be wanting something else.
I mean if they are not satisfied with whom they are, they will not be content with what they have! Moreover how they know they’ll be content when they have it? And they will not crave more and envy more?
Gratitude is a blessing and you should embrace each blessing you have otherwise you will never be satisfied.
2- On Avoiding people:
I believe we all avoided people at certain point and we still do! Sometimes for silly reasons but we just do it.
I’m usually sociable and I love to meet new people (something that has decreased a bit with time) but in some occasions, I remember I avoided people because I was not so confident to start the conversation and I kept thinking why I did that! Nothing is wrong with me! But it happened.
Then I avoided people that love to ask many questions (especially relatives), and from my point of view, when we know that we’re not happy where we are and we didn’t achieve our goals as we wished and dreamed, we don’t want anyone to remind us that we didn’t!
But when we’re so happy in our life, we will take the initiative and speak to people even if they didn’t notice us or simply ignored us because we don’t care what they might think or say or ask.
3- On Saving Others:
It’s painfully true especially when we discover that it’s not our job to save people because it’s their job only, but despite we still suffer from seeing them drowning sometimes and they are too stubborn to even take our hand!
Yes you can intervene if the other party is allowing you to, and if you can help it would be great! But at the end if the person is rejecting help or not helping them-selves, our intervention is useless!
4- On Misunderstanding
Misunderstanding is a big problem, I rather people hate me than misunderstand me and this is something we can’t really control, you spend your lifetime with people and they still misunderstand you, doesn’t mean there’s right and wrong, just they are not compatible together.
And the more you grow up, the more you understand this and you stick to people that understand you and you even stop making efforts, people will only hear what they want to hear except of course some small category of people that actually try to listen and understand but even if, chemistry and how people click without any effort will always be priceless.
Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed 😊
