Today I over heard some people gossiping about a co-worker they didn't like. As I was sitting quietly enjoying my lunch at a quaint little manhattan restaurant, I couldn't help but over hear the vile rhetoric coming out of these adult mouths. This really made me think about our society and what it has become. But with that being said, I think - no, I know - it runs much deeper than that.
How can we expect to talk nice about others if deep down we are constantly talking bad about ourselves? We are always putting ourselves down. And let it be known, everyone, that when I write these blogs I am also speaking to myself. I believe that if we started to be nicer to the one that truly matters most (ourselves) then that kindness would carry out into the real world. But we are so unhappy and focused on how we look, that we don't have what he/she has (the dream job, the dream boyfriend/girlfriend, the dream house or car), and that our lives are at best sub par.
I believe we can change the world, but it must start with us as individuals. We must remind ourselves that we are enough and our lives have value. All external distractions are just that, distractions. So, let's not talk or gossip about others even if they are mean or hurtful toward us. Let's remember that we are all doing the best we can with the tools we have been given, and we should remember to never take things personally, Simonton Say's.
Till next time.
