Mama once said; “We don’t just entertain friends/relationships outta fun, we build them over time, we respect them & we keep them. That’s why never accept or serve discounted garbage”.
I was in my teen days. I was still getting pocket money from parents. I wasn’t able to understand those heavy/right words. I thought my mum was talking about not buying discounted clothes/stuffs or wasting money with friends during weekend trips. Most of my friends know i hate discounted clothes now too. In fact, i don’t have a single piece of clothing from any fast fashion brands.
Coming closer to my 30, now i am understanding that she told me not to hangout with people who have discounted/cheap personality/approach/attitude/mindset, It took me almost 14 years to figure out the real meaning behind those wise words. Being a MAN means progression of understanding, knowledge, acceptance & virtue while developing better habits.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Watch it to understand how your shopping habits are shaping a climate & humanitarian disaster. There’s a reason I never buy clothes from H&M, Zara, TK Maxx or any store/brand with 50% discount board. I buy clothes which cost at least a hundred quid or more, and i wear them for ages. They stay with me because, I know I have spent enough money to buy them. And i fully remember how much I paid, I have a photographic memory. Fun part is, I still have t-shirts, jackets, hoodies & sneakers from my 8th grade & engineering college days which fit perfectly even today. FYI, I am a sneakerhead & my love for watches is something divine.)
A person’s personality & character must sparkle positivity & good vibes. Nobody cares shit about beauty of your face or body after a while, they are just accessories.
And, Accessories are a welcome, but not a must.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. My love for horses can’t be described in words. This situation in Kazakhstan is scary. I am that kinda stupid boy whose emotions are locked to babies & puppies. While watching this 1.40 minute video, all i wanted was to somehow adopt all those horses & bring them to my backyard.)
Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book, or a person who explained to us, explained us that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger spiritually than we were before.
Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, we tend to feel it as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, waiting for those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life, and that in all probability a new level of the PERSONALITY is about to be revealed. KEEP WORKING & STAY READY TO RECEIVE.
(This paragraph got nothing to do with the post above. Now the question everyone asking in university group; “Is there a secret instagram account of TAP?”. ANSWER IS YES, only 5 people know about it. I use it more like a travel timeline diary. My real instagram has around 16k followers, I don’t even know 99% of those people. Way back some asshole stole & published my workout images in an Amsterdam based male erotic model magazine, one of my ex-bitch informed me about it when she was planning to hire a stripper for her sister’s bachelorette party. Fun part is, that’s the time period i didn’t even leave my country for one whole year & I was/am really happy with my DATA ANALYST JOB. Since then, i am not uploading my face to instagram. But i am quite active in snapchat, i have streaks with all 122 contacts. I know & i have met every single one of them. I trust all of them, nobody will screenshot or steal my pictures there.)
Be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry. Do more than you’re asked and please don’t ask for anything in return, that may look stupid & ruin the purpose. Don’t silently expect anything either. Listen when someone talks and really listen, stop just thinking of how you’ll reply. Tell people you love them and appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people you adore. Be the greatest person you can possibly be and remain the same even when you mess up, make up for it in the next moment or minute or day.
One thing you should never do is; Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody that you’re great. Your actions will speak for themselves and we only have limited time on earth, don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light of goodness, and they come naturally.
Be with someone who inspires you to be your greatest self.
