It's Not Just About You
It's Not Just About You
Are you the type of person who thinks that the sun only rises when you get up in the morning? You think that the world revolves around you and everyone owes you, No one is as worthy as you are, and you're the best thing that God Created. Face the facts, you are conceited, shallow and selfish. It is one thing to have high self esteem. However, when it put's others under foot, your high self esteem is no better than having low self esteem.
When you're having a conversation with your friends, Is it one sided? Do you drown them out by talking about you, you and you? Before you scare them off, take a deep breath and listen to what's going on in their lives for a change, unless you just don't have the time to sit there and listen to those drama queens and kings.
Perhaps, your friends want needed advice or they just need someone to be a shoulder to cry on, but if it's too much for you, it's time to find friend's who thinks your crap doesn't stink and that the sun really does rise when you wake up in the morning.
You know you're not always right, you don't have all the answers and everyone around you does not have mush for brains and depend on you to teach them or guide them in the right direction. It is a good idea for you to stop thinking everyone should stop and follow your ways, because you believe it is the right way.
No one needs a Hitler in their lives. Some people think it should be their way or the highway, and in many cases others would be better off letting a blind man lead them at night across four lanes of speeding cars on a highway other than following you.
There will always be someone just as good as you if not better in this world, so giving yourself the spotlight all of the time, you're not being fair to yourself and later you might have to eat crow or eat your heart out.
So acknowledge others who can also bring something to the table and don't let jealousy overwhelm you. This article is not meant to hurt anyones feelings or promote low self esteem, it is meant to show shallow and conceited people to consider the possibility that it is not just about them.
Did you purposely not invite someone to be a part of your club, group or clique because you think that they are beneath you? If they have harmed you in some way I can see why you don't want to make them a part of it. Nevertheless, excluding them because you are jealous of them only proves my point that the green eyed monster in you causes havoc trampling over the souls of worthy and good people; this in return makes the green eyed monster in you feel like the best thing since slice bread.
Sometimes family and friends can be so caught up in their own lives and problems that they choose to throw everyone else on the back burner, they feel they know where you are if they need you, so if you have a problem tough luck, it's not just about you, it's all about them at this moment and God forbid anything bad happens to you that ends you up faced with inevitable circumstances that leads your life in jeapardy; your family and friends who weren't there for you will have regret written all over their faces.
This is especially true in cases where close family members have a fall out over something petty and ban each other out of one another's life and don't hear from each other in months or years until, one or the other dies or is very sick, but many times by then it is too late and that family member that banned you from their life is the one standing over you dropping tears in your casket.
Wake up, realize that life is short; and petty things like being shallow, conceited or thinking that your way is the only way to go, it isn't. There are many paths in life that people can choose to take because of free will and remember it's not just about you.
