Just Looking For *Consolation*

Ever felt bogged down to an extent that you just want to find consolation in something, someone or another situation?

For example: I found this caricature pretty hilarious…*hope you get the joke*

Let’s just say at this moment in time, I am that person looking for any consolation that I can find. And I’m glad I’ve actually realized, because that needs to be stopped IMMEDIATELY.

I don’t know what exactly was to happen if I found a consolation and what kind of consolation it is that I was looking for. The problem is that, now that I ended up thinking about it *Thank God for that*. If I found consolation in someone or something, I would relax and stay at my comfort zone because now I will know I’m not sailing in that boat alone…so if it crushes or anything happens we are many.

But now that I have come to my senses they were probably hiding, I wonder why it’s like God was sending me a memo *Don’t look for consolation in anyone, that’s so 1900 B.C * . I beat up my head quite a bit, and my conclusion, hopefully a sign from above…lol (OK, I’m serious), was do something about it yourself, tackle whatever situation it is without having to compare yourself to anyone. ps: Even in the titanic, the ship crashed others drowned and others survived #ifyouknowwhatimean

Did you know that, when two people are going through the same situation … They will both handle it in very different ways “You are your own person”, so If you compare yourself to that other person, you don’t really know how they are dealing with it, or the resources they have.

As they say: “Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world … if you do so, you are insulting yourself.” ~ Adolph Hitler

It doesn’t mean that you can’t look up to someone as your mentor or have dreams or ambitions to be in a certain position or state. But do so, in your own way. Don’t strive to be someone else because you just out-rightly can’t.

So in case you’re wondering where this whole story is headed, this is the goodness of writing out what one feels..I actually feel better and refreshed.

My Pledge: I, from now henceforth shall strive my best to get where I want to be, using all my God-given resources, I shall not compare myself to anyone because I would otherwise end up depressed *I mean someone is already a billionaire at 19 and I’m 23 and still a thousandaire = stress* and I want to remain sane and at least Happy (whatever happy really means…story for another day.)

Maybe I have never mentioned this but, main reason I love blogging, is because I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person experiencing *whatever it is I write and share* … and probably someone reads this and goes like *that’s just like me!* . Maybe you learn a thing or two or maybe not, maybe one enjoys or just reads for the sake. But thanks for visiting!! Always welcome. Thanks to my readers.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself”

LOVELY WEEKEND MY PEOPLE’S…XOXO

  • Enoughsaid!!!! Comparing yourself to others only gives you more acid! No point! We all are in diff races and once you step out of yo own track to run another’s race, then #fail! So just stay on yo track- do stuff yo way- maisha raisi— you actually end up givin everythin you do yo best and getting th best out of everything-

    its not about how best you measure compared to another- its about how well you do with the best in you that you can give!

    • Oh my! Now there you’ve said spot on ” like 10 Somali pirates plotting who to attack” lol Muchas Gracias — I need to hear more of that.
      Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.
