Either you are your own person? Or you’re someone else’s?
These are very important questions to ask oneself?
We tend to follow what everyone else does for a few simple reasons?
The need to belong, the need for acceptance, the need for fitting in.
While we were growing up nobody ever told us the answers to all of these questions.
We had to take it upon ourselves and learn it as we go along. Some of us were successful at finding the right kind/type of people. But somewhere down the road we make more bad choices then good choices.
We find people that the 80s duo Eurythmics and their song Sweet dreams talk about. And they were ever so right to go down the list!
There is an old saying that goes:”you came into this world alone!” “And you’re going to go out the same way!”
It is clearly a given Fact! Nobody wants to be alone for any length of time.
From either being alone! Or doing what everybody else does just for the sake of belonging and fitting in.
When I was growing up I didn’t have very many friends either.
It just seemed to me that either they had somebody they can rule, control, manipulate, dominate.
Only in time they found out they could not!
I guess that’s where the term “fair weather friends” came from?
As soon as they came into my life! Like a “thunderstorm” they eventually went away!
Overtime I did eventually find out. I am a lot better without them!
Being by oneself is really not as bad as a lot of people may think?
You have more time to think about other things, do things on your own, but other people would more than likely to critique and criticize you on, you also have time to learn how to be a better person.
You also have a lot more time for your family & your loved ones.
In general family is more important then friends.
Friends come and go! Family stays!
Which would you rather do?
The things that you are interested in? The things you like? The things you love?
Without having someone else tell you:”I wouldn’t do that!”
Usually when they encounter people like that? I told him great you know what that means? There is a higher power in the universe!
Don’t get me wrong!
It is great to have friends to hang with!
It’s another to have friends who try to in general control you in their own weird-ass way!
