I want to make a difference in the world. I am not after relevancy, I am not after fame and money. I want to be better than my parents. I want to achieve more than they have. It is not a bad thing, it is not a self-absorbed thing to say either. Because I truly hope that my children one day will achieve more than I have. Do more. Be more. Each generation should leave behind a legacy, a good base to springboard the next.
So I give you The List of Unfavourable’s:
“Every single thing I do, say, conceptualise – you latch on. You have no originality. You are a leech. Do not expect any love from me.”
I think this tweet sums up these kinds of people appropriately. I used to call these people sheep, sheep because constantly following me. Everything I do, they latch on. They do it too. I think leeches do this too because sheep are cute and not sinister. Leeches have something planned, they have an agenda as to why they are constantly, doing what you do.
The Relevance Seekers
No, they may not even be in your lane. But it crushes me when I realise the only reason they’re doing something is because they want fame. They want people to know their names. There isn’t anything wrong with that. But there is something wrong with you claiming you’re making a difference in the world when you are actually only looking out for yourself.
The “Show-you-up” Ones
These are the ones who are doing exactly what you’re doing and make a point of telling you how much further they are compared to you. You make a point of always saying what you’ve done, where you’ve been and how you’re doing so well compared to me. These are the ones who constantly steal your thunder. Constantly point out where you’ve failed and constantly are a pain in the ass. Focus on yourself, please.
So you aren’t doing anything but you make sure you share your list of all the ways I’m about to fail. Don’t come to me with how nothing will work. Either wholeheartedly support me or shut the hell up.
