Here’s something for you to answer: Do you ever wish you were someone else for a day? The opposite sex? A celebrity? I know a lot of people think of these things. To be honest, I used to wish I were a Kardashian. I know what you’re thinking, why? It’s because their life looked so glamorous and exciting. But now, I see all around in magazines that all three of them are having problems with the men they want to spend the rest of their lives with.
The point is, never wish you were someone else. You never know, behind closed doors your life could be better than the person you would rather be. Today I wished to be Hope Kumor. Now it’s your turn to desire to be yourself.
Do you rely on someone or yourself? The answer should be both. If you don’t start depending on yourself now, then when will you? I admit that I count on my brother too much to help me. I guess in a way, I’m scared that I will make a mistake and will ruin something I do. But people make errors, nobody’s perfect.
Have you ever thought about the role you play in society? We learned about therapy the other day in psychology. And the professor talked about how each person plays a part in meetings and in life. She mentioned a mother, who is the fixer, the leader, who won’t be quiet and the loafer, who never talks. Think about this in your own life.
Which role do you play? Do you have someone in your class who bugs the heck out of you? A person who is so quiet you don’t even know the sound of their voice?
Did you know there are movies out there that symbolize what our world is about? For example,  Days of Summer. Have you ever heard of it? If you haven’t, it’s a story about love. It’s not the same situation where the girl and guy are together forever. It’s actually the opposite. The two don’t marry. The girl in the movie, Summer, meets another guy later on in the movie and weds with him. Of course, she breaks up with the guy, Tom first. They hang out and have fun. It’s not your typical storyline. If you would like to know more about it, rent it.
Haven’t you noticed romance movies are all the same? The male and female aren’t destined to date, then after a while they realize that they need each other. I believe almost every time I already know what is going to happen. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down these movies. I love them. But I’ve just observed they’re all the same plot.
Tell me this, how many of you ever felt like an outsider? I bet everyone has at least once in their life. Even the well-liked people feel this way. That’s another thing I don’t get, why do you have to be popular to fit-in? Why can’t everyone just be apart of a group? It’s not fair that there are loners in this world.
How can someone feel so alone when their surrounded by so many people? I guess it’s because they aren’t close to anyone. Maybe they haven’t formed a bond that’s so strong nothing will destroy it. I feel bad for those people.
This is what I want everyone to do, make a list of all the good things about yourself. See how it makes you feel. Do it today.
I don’t know about everyone, but I don’t like to be in a room with too many people. It’s a little overwhelming if you ask me.
When my family used to go places, my dad would say once in a while, ‘It’s going to be so crowded; I don’t know if we should go.’ My brothers and mom would say so what, let’s go anyway. That could be a reason why I don’t like too many others around.
I was watching Sydney White last week. Ever heard of it? It is about Sydney, who is starting her first year of college, and isn’t a girly girl. Her mom, who went to the same school, was a sorority girl and passed away when she was 9. Sydney wanted to be in the kappa sorority. It appeared she didn’t get into it because she was flirting with the head girl, Rachel’s, so-called boyfriend.
She ran for president and wanted freedom for these seven dorks she met. Everyone hated Rachel and Sydney won. Sydney claimed that she was a dork. It’s okay to be a dork, the message was. All people can be this way sometimes.
I read, so I guess that makes me a dork. Name something you do that you’re proud of being a dork for.
