I see it way too often in the social media world. Which makes reconsider having a social media but then again it sparked me to rant about this today and shed some light on this topic. If you read this blog and feel as if you relate to this, if the shoe fits then wear it because this was probably written to call you out and make you think twice.
Day after day you refresh social media, Facebook, Instagram, twitter, etc. And it is either people complaining about work, the summer coming to an end, not enough time in a day, waking up for work, going to work, things not going there way, what happened to them two days ago, how they don't feel as if they are treated right, they deserve better, they don't need others opinions to feel good, they aren't happy in their current job and a bunch of pictures to show what they are doing all weekend or day, endless videos at the bar ,etc. Honestly just a load of sh*t they are throwing on the internet. Yet the next day these are the same people who are posting "motivational quotes" with stuff like "be grateful everyday you wake up" or some long paragraph about how they are more than what others think or stuff like that.
And I sit there and I think to myself, "do these people just find a cool quote and post it to get attention or do they actually take a second to read the quote they just posted and use it in their own life? Do they seriously take those words in the quote to heart or is it just another way to try and make themselves feel good and draw attention to themselves?
I really may never know. Nor do I care honestly, but if you are one of these people that constantly complains about every little thing, feels as if everything happens to them because of bad luck or misfortune and then go off and post some copy and paste bullsh*t quote. Please delete your social media. SAYING IT AND DOING IT ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. If you are not standing by what you are posting on social media then don't post it. People see this, followers see this, family, etc see this. Therefore either stand by what you mean or don't say anything. I don't mean to sound harsh here but it is getting old trying to get people to feel sorry for you. You really don't have it all that bad. So what you woke up for work today and the four other days following that. God forbid you had a little minor convenience at work or someone at work hurt your feelings, or something happened before or after work. The moral of the story is, stop feeling for yourself, stop trying to get others to feel sorry for you. Stop complaining about the little crap in life. You have it way better than A LOT of people out there. There is someone out there right now that would kill to be in your shoes. So next time you complain about something like waking up for work, or missing a train or traffic or your friend left you at a bar for a few minutes or you don't have any weekend plans. Whatever it may be, before you complain about little sh*t take a second and think about how someone in this world right now, is struggling way worse than you could ever imagine and would love to be where you are.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself and take action. Do something to change your situation, your current mindset, your thinking, your attitude. Whatever it may be, you have control over three things, your attitude, your effort and your emotions. Don't let emotions control you, control your emotions and take action. Sitting there and complaining does nothing. You may be struggling. Good! Embrace that stuff, take it to the chin, and use it. Because one day your struggles will be your testimony. Enough lolly gagging around, stop being lazy, stop feeling sorry and take action. Don't over think, just do something and the rest will fall into place.
Rant over. Mic drop. Quick pace off stage so you don't get garbage thrown at you for hurting some peoples feelings.
