We all want to be liked, accepted, and belong. It is in our nature -humans are social creatures.
We live in a quick world , where we constantly are fed by social media, tv , influences etc.. It is quite hard to be yourself and stay unique, as we get bombarded pretty much from everywhere, and all the time - we are told what to wear, where to eat, where do go on holidays, how many kids to have, you name it. Every aspect of our lives seems to be decided, sadly not by us...
While you shop for your bread and milk , you can also check out the latest coffin designs (in case you haven't seen go to Costo). Coles got rid of the plastic bag to 'help environment' and instead introduced plastic collectible toys... If you shop at Coles or Woolies think before you accept the useless piece of plastic that will soon poison our beaches, and our backyards... We need to start using our brains on regular bases, and use our own judgments rather than listening to what being said to us.
Open the news and what do you see? - Qantas to test non-stop flights to London and New York, Commuter chaos across Sydney rail network, severe weather warnings, Uber Driver has car stolen at Sydney station, not a single word on the Amazonian rainforest, which is currently burning at the record rate. Earlier this month, Brazil declared a state of emergency over the rising number of fires in the region .On Tuesday, Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist, tweeted data showing smoke from the first covering about half of Brazil. Effects of damage to the Amazon go far beyond Brazil and its neighbors. The area's rainforest generates more than 20% of the world's oxygen and 10% of the world's known biodiversity. The Amazon is referred to as the "lungs of the planet" and plays a major role in regulating the climate. The world would drastically change if the rainforest were to disappear, impacting everything from farms to drinking water. There is nothing on the news, no media coverage, isn't that shocking?
Don't fit into the mould, stay authentic and be yourself. Use your common sense, your gut feelings.
Do you like everyone at work? Probably not...Then don't expect everyone to like you too. It is actually really unrealistic, especially if you work with a lot of people. I certainty don't like everyone I work with, and I can tell you I know there are people who aren't my fans... It doesn't bother me and I don't lose my sleep over that.
Do what feel right for you, it doesn't have be what everyone else is doing, or following... It is ok not to have Netflix, Spotify or Stan, the latest Iphone ,or newest model of Nike shoes to be cool... You are cool by being yourself !!
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.” .
