Rejected Stone

INSPIRATION

Certain people often are looked down by family members, friends and society and are never seriously taken for anything. just as the scriptural emphasis” can anything good come out of Nazareth?”  They never expect any good thing to come  from them. Most often they are looked down upon. It all comes down to you not being who they expect you to be. When I say rejected, It doesn’t necessarily mean people not talking to you or ignoring you,but the fact that they don’t believe in you. You don’t act in a manner they want, you don’t tackle things In a manner they want, you are not aggressive enough and the list goes on.

I know a lot of people can relate to what I’m talking about. You however have one of two choices to make, either accept this wrong notion  from them  or you prove them wrong. One major lesson I have learnt in life is that you can never please everybody.Therefore you have to do you! Honestly, it is quite sweet when you turn out to be that rejected stone the builders use to secure their building.

If you happen to be a rejected stone too, don’t let it get to you. Do not wallow in self pity or compare yourself to others or give these people the opportunity to win. Don’t let that negative vibe get to you. Have this at the back of your mind that Whatever hurtful words is being said to you knowingly or unknowingly, doesn’t define who you are. You can tackle things differently and at the end of it all, be successful.

How sweet it is when nobody is watching or expecting anything from you then boom!!! You surprise them. Trust me, people who doubted you will suddenly become friends. It’s never how fast you get to your destination, it’s getting there that matters.

We are all different and can never be the same and that is what makes us unique. Therefore, it’s normal to be different and that makes you, you.

Don’t stop believing in yourself. When you stop, you lose the fight. When it’s getting too much for you to cope, separate yourself from any negative vibe.

STANDARDS

INSPIRATION, LIFESTYLE

Low or high standards,we all have one. It is important to have standards and set an example. Has your standards worked for you? Good if it has  but, if it has not,then you need to do something about it.

In life we all have standards on what we want. It could be the kind of car we want to drive, the kind of house we want to buy in the future, the type of man or woman we want to get married to and the lists goes on.

Sometimes, we set our standards so high forgetting that we are just humans and anything can happen. The only thing constant in life is change, so we need to be open minded about everything.

Do not get me wrong,It’s definitely good to maintain high standards but some people set their standards so high,when they do not achieve it,they become depressed. Especially in relationships,we  expect way too much and when things do not go the way we want it to be, we get so disappointed.  One way or the other,we have all sabotaged our relationships(past or present) . It may not be deliberately but on some level subconscious. What do you think?

One advice I will give is when setting a standard you want to achieve, be realistic about it. Do not build castles in the air because at the end of it all,you will not be  fooling anybody. You will be fooling yourself.

If you set standards by which you are not able to adhere, then you are probably not doing it right.
