Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being’s suffering. Not a career. Not wealth. Not intelligence. Certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we’re going to survive with dignity.
I have outgrown many things. I have outgrown relatives who gladly offer criticism but not support. I have outgrown my need to meet my family’s unrealistic expectations of me. I have outgrown people who wear masks and secretly rejoice at my misfortunes. (Not the corona situation face mask). I have outgrown shrinking myself for those who are intimidated by my intelligence and outspoken nature. I have outgrown friends who cannot celebrate my accomplishments. I have outgrown people who conveniently disappear whenever life gets a little dark. I have outgrown those who take pleasure in gossiping and spreading negativity. I have outgrown dull, meaningless conversations that feel forced. I hate smalltalk. I have outgrown those who don’t take a stand against ignorance and injustice. I have outgrown trying to please everyone. I have outgrown society constantly telling me I’m not beautiful, smart or worthy enough. I have outgrown my tendency to fill my mind with self doubt and insecurity. I have outgrown trying to find reasons not to love myself. I have outgrown anything and anyone that does not enrich the essence of my soul. I have outgrown many things. And I’ve never felt freer. (Not my words).
The goal is to become an upgraded version of my real self & a better HUMAN BEING every next day of this life. And i am connected to everyone who’s a part of that journey. If we have a steady flow of communication, you are celebrated in my books. There’s no WONDER without some WONDERFUL people in life. SOMETIMES LIFE SEEMS UNCOMFORTABLE BECAUSE YOUR OLD LIFE DOESN’T FIT ON YOU ANYMORE. YOU’VE OUTGROWN THE OLD YOU.
You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life. Don’t allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.
Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above and it also got nothing to do with next few lines i am typing. Shared it because this PEGASUS spyware row is getting wilder day by day. Governments of UK, India, France, USA, Dubai, Israel & 35 other countries tapped/hacked 50000 phone numbers of journalists, political leaders, terrorists, even a country’s prime minister. Am i against this? Hell NO. Countries are supposed to spy on each other for their safety. It’s a thing from cold war era, this will keep on going because it’s nothing new.

Destiny is not a chance and definitely it’s not given. It’s all about making right set of choices with an informed brain at right time. You have to be observant. You never wait for it because you have to achieve it. So three things to watch out here: AN INFORMED BRAIN, YOUR EFFORTS & RIGHT CHOICES IN RIGHT TIME.
Your efforts & choices may vary depending on what kind of person you are, it also depends on your upbringing. But an informed brain is the driving force here. In modern day, there is nothing called intelligence or IQ without being informed. Information is the real knowledge. If you want to stay ahead of the curve, keep educating yourself every single day about what’s happening around you and also what’s right/wrong with the world you live in. DESTINY IS MEANT FOR THE DOERS WITH INFORMED MIND.
(I like this song. Nothing to do with the post above.)
Smile & Laugh are two different things. In my case, I laugh a lot & I hardly smile. For an example; whenever I meet few girls from my uni, that ass makes me smile but that intelligence makes me laugh. (SUP ZK).😝
There must be a feminazi somewhere thinking “HOW THE FUCK THIS GUY CAN QUOTE GIRLS AS DUMB!!”. Please calm down. You can swap the genders & read it, I still mean the same. I am just saying “Lack of knowledge is dumb. And information is knowledge, not your university degree. According to my analogy, every lazy person is dumb due to their lack of interest in information & slow easy mindset towards life”.
I need to smile more. Maybe you need to laugh more. Smile & Laugh both. Life is fun, let it be. Tap OUT..😜
Your intelligence, education, qualification, looks & skills are worth nothing if your character is not in sync with life. To earn the legitimacy of being a valuable asset to your work & society, you need to keep on being a TRUTHFUL YOU at every phase of life.
