THE BIGGER PICTURE
Sometimes I truly doubt if anyone reads my blog, because you know I’m not going to ask each and everyone of my friends to do so. As an act of support I expect everyone who follows me on my IG to like all of the 3 artworks and read my blog tbh, because that’s what I do do, whenever I see any of my friends posting something I like it, n sometimes I share it.
Knowing that no one is going to read this, some people who follow me silently no like no nothing, just watches my story. Which is honestly weird. Stalkers? Creeps? No idea but I do get the chills.
This is the topic of this blog, helping others but forgetting oneself in between.
Is a mystery.
We thrive to become the best version of ourselves.
We push others.
We help others.
But, in the overall picture and experience of life.
We forget ourselves.
Putting others above your own needs, is the most brutal thing you can ever do to yourself, you first then others.Some might say this is selfish, but did the “other” put you out first?
Ask yourself that question, when you are being in a tight spot, did he/she put you first or no?
If it’s going to be the fight of egos, then I highly recommend opening that damn door, and leave. P.S this example is for the people who have the tendency of saying yes to everything and putting others above themselves. Not for selfish/egoistic pricks who put themselves always first, and do not compensate for once. If you scratch their ego, enjoy the defense mechanism show.
Anyways, the bigger picture is something that we do not always see, and most of the times its related to fate. We go with the flow, but we we have to work for that flow to be stable. It’s nice sometimes to go for adventures, yet trust me when I say that each decision you make affects you for the next 5 years. Make sure to build your life wisely, since the upcoming years do not look the most welcoming.
It’s nice to help other, it gives you that type of satisfaction that you’ve done something. It’s nice to push them to a better version of themselves. We all have that one blind spot, and if there’s someone around us who cares and notices it and advices us to be careful, then you are lucky to have that person in your life. Just make sure to not waste their time if they advice you, and you already know that deep down you won’t change/do the mistake again.
Because, honestly? That effort should be put on themselves if the person receiving is not planning to take it. If the receiving is also a person who only likes to receive with no giving back, then what’s the point?
In the end, life is all about giving, and getting back. Yes, we all expect favors. A favor for a favor, right? So do yourself a favor and favor yourself, by giving yourself the time to understand your problems, buy that book that you wanted, reply to that message that you\be been ignoring, and you know self isolate for a better quality of you? Maybe?
Put yourself first.
Bigger picture shows itself late, so be prepared.
Work on yourself.
There’s only you, for you.
