At any point of our lives, there will come a time when we’ll feel insecure and unworthy. We’ll start to see more of other people’s achievements and even their goals, sometimes to the point that we set their achievements as our goals and their goals as our future plans. We tend to believe that what makes other people happy can make us feel contented of ours, as if there’s a written logic that says that.
Not knowing what you want makes it more inevitable to look at how other people get to live to do what they love to do. I’m not certain if this is general to all of us but, when I’m asked to do something but don’t know how to, I look for an example. Math problem. Research paper. Theories. I need examples and references for those. And when you’re new to something and are still in the learning process, it’s hard to deviate from the pattern. I would tend to copy the same process the example says. Because that’s easy. Because that’s the safest thing to begin with. Isn’t it?
And could that be wrong? To try to live the way other’s do? To try and know whether that was right or wrong? But how do we know what we want if we’re trying to live our lives based off other’s? I believe you’ll feel that along the way. You’ll understand that however hard you try to put your effort into it, it would not be enough. Because it’s not what you want. So I guess, it’s in the process of not knowing and just trying to live by that you’ll find what is valuable to you. That even if we take the easy and convenient way at first, we’ll still find ourselves uncomfortable of where we are, and home is still not home until we do our best to find our own thing. That even if there are examples and patterns, we will deviate from those because we want something different. And from there, we’ll begin to see ourselves more and clearer. One day, we’ll be more welcoming of who we see when we stand in front of the mirror, relaxed and at home.
Life’s not about who can figure it first, so don’t race on it.
One basic rule nobody says in the company but should generally be followed is that you should always respect your workmates. Always. No matter how small or big a role anyone is playing, the level of respect should not be varied or limited in any aspect. More especially to those who are good at what they do.
Professionalism lies not only in the capabilities or qualifications of a person; it is in the way you carry yourself and the way you handle your job without getting the in the way of other’s. Character confirms your credentials and it will take you farther, faster to the position you are eyeing for.
The job description is only a fraction of what would make you want to stay in the company. Work is also about being a part of the team. How you work with others or how others work with you may define the length of your service to the institution. Either way, it is still about knowing how to communicate with the people around you. And that is with proper manners and with ample amount of respect.
The struggle in what ifs is undeniable; in most instances, what ifs are inevitably bothersome. What makes it even more of a trouble is the fact that it is unavoidable. To some extent, there is no point in trying to leave it out of the situation. What ifs come naturally as if it’s the main character of the story. What a queen.
My question is why? Why is it like that? Why do we question the situation, our options, the results that aren’t even there yet? Is it the lack of confidence? Fear? Or are we simply being realistic about life? That we prepare ourselves to the alternative in the event that whatever it is that we’re hoping for doesn’t happen?
How afraid are we of making mistakes?
From watching the film’s trailer, I’ve wanted so badly to see the movie. Aside from the fact that Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson were in it, the story line is very attractive because it tackles about ones character. Finally, I found the time to see it yesterday and I wasn’t disappointed. I know it was a teenage movie but it still teaches you a lot about people and why they act the way they do.
Nadine has issues about herself that she needed to fully understand and acknowledge first before she was able to fix. She had her family and friends but she didn’t quite see those facts all because she’s blinded by her personal issues. I liked that the movie showed several factors that lead to how Nadine became as a kid and as a person; because that was the truth. People don’t just change because something happened; life is a series. Some things are connected in some ways, even in its downsides.
I love movies that show a person’s growth, because we always want to grow. Even when we have already grown, especially when we’ve already grown. Don’t they say that when we’ve learned so much, that we crave for more? Which is the opposite of the more we think we know, the more we don’t in reality. I’m not trying to say I’ve learned so much about life already, I’m still so young. But, regardless of age, we all want to gain something that will feed our souls. Would you agree?
via Daily Prompt: Recognize
People are the hardest to recognize; minus the name and the physical attributes, if you really think about it sometimes, people could be the hardest to recognize. You can know someone by their name for years and not know who they really are. Would you agree?
There is a difference between who we are and how we want to be recognized. Some would want to be seen as the happy go lucky despite struggling in the inside from pressure. Some would want to be seen as the successful one even though they have been slacking off the whole time. In college, some attend to non-academics activities because they want to find a life outside of the syllabus. There are a lot more stories that could be similar to these but my question is, how do you know you’re seeing the person in front of you in the way they want to be seen, in the way they want to be recognized? Would you easily acknowledge them? For what they show and they say they are? Or would you look at them a little longer and see what their smiles tell you?
Personally, I think that people will show you what they want to show you. And it’s easier to accept how they choose to appear in front of us if we don’t know much about them.
It’s not on how long but how deep
the friendship has been.
