Dear Fellow Human,
Every time I set foot outside my door to mingle amount my fellow species, what I witness fills me with sadness. I witness the struggles of many, not only when I partake in social activities, but when I go out to drive for Uber/Lyft. I listen to countless conversations and engage in substantial exchanges.
The few words of encouragement and wisdom that I share with few random souls in my vehicle seem to drop on arid soil. They vanish as quickly as they land. My sorrow deepens by the sad realization of the prophecy “many are called but few are chosen”. Many may read this prophecy and think that the selection process is outside of their control simply because of the word “chosen”, but the reality is that, choosing is a self-selective and natural process. This simply means, life is given to many, but only few will choose it. The Law is simple, clear and immutable “What you sow, you must harvest”, therefore if you are not among the chosen, there’s no one else to blame.
Everywhere you look, your eyes will land on at least one human being who doesn’t love themselves yet expects others to love them. How can you say you love yourself when you hide behind social masks? How can you say you love yourself when you wonder around with fake hair? How can you say you love your self when you are made up because you are full of make up? How can you say you love your self when you are simply pretending, and you know it too? How can you say you love yourself when you don’t love who you are naturally just the way God Created you? How can you say you love yourself when you tell lies about yourself and others? How can you say you love yourself when you don’t even know what love is? How can say you are a friend when you don’t even know the meaning of “friend”? Maybe this is where you need to start, by understanding the notion of important words like Love and Friend that affect you daily.
If you want others to love your fake hair, they will love your fake hair and not you, so who is it to blame?
If you want others to love your make up, they will love your make up and not you, so who is it to blame?
If you want others to love your social avatar, they will love your social avatar and not you, so who is it to blame?
If you believe that you are beautiful, why cover it up with makeups, fake things, just to present a social avatar that is not you?
