It’s crazy how youtube videos today are full of inspirations and ideas. I came across a video that stated one of the things you should realize about life was that, “it’s not all about you.” They stated that the world doesn’t revolve around you and you should be generous instead. That was very vague. I was very upset! Furious! It goes against everything I believe in! I do agree with it that you should be generous and that you are not the center of the universe but it is still about you. I wish they would have said more on that topic.
Let me tell you my argument. Yes, no one owes you anything and the universe doesn’t owe you a happy ending. (Too much Korean drama, they are great crying actors by the way) The world does not revolve around you. You are not the the center of the universe You are not entitled to anything you don’t work for. Yes, being generous is a given. When you can give, then give. But how can you give if you don’t have anything to give? How can you help others if you are burnt out?
If you can’t help yourself, how are you going to help others? You have to learn how to help yourself first then you can help another. If your failing in a relationship how are you going to give relationship advice to another? If you have no food and your dying shouldn’t you find food to feed yourself first to gain the strength you need in order to help the others?
Don’t confuse the two. People are where they are today because they work hard for it on a daily basis. They were consistent. You don’t get to see their struggles and sweats. Just like they don’t see your struggles and sweats. If you want something then work hard for it. Take the steps to get to that goal. It will not come to you if you do nothing productive. Thats not how the universe works. People that are generous are the ones that are able to help themselves already.
So in your life, yes it is about you. If you are in a place where you don’t like who you are and where your not very proud of yourself then you are in no position to help others that are seeking help. If you are in a place where you are struggling to meet moneys ends then you need to take care of yourself first. You must learn to help yourself however where ever you are in your life.
This is the most important part of the blog..Remember this even if your never coming back to my blog…
