These truths can take the form of a rant or a true story. I thought (naively) that it would be easy to think of things. I decided I would need a prompt and after announcing on Twitter that today was Tuesday Truths and I needed inspiration (of which I would get from the next tweet) not one of the people I follow tweeted...I never knew I was so intimidating (i'm not) and a whole five minutes passed before @TheBloodyQuills retweeted. The Bloody Quills are a band that I reviewed recently which you can check out by clicking here. They retweeted an uberfact which was...
You would expect the Gold medal to be made of 100% gold but its not. How often have you met someone who has turned out to be nothing like they profess or seemed to be at first?
Many times you think someone is one thing and theyre not. You trust people at face value but the reality is often different. I am always trusting people and very many memories all start with..well, I met this person...but I recently (a few months ago) trusted someone based purely at face value and now I am questionnning that decision.
Over the months there have been instances when their behaviour has been of a competitive nature towards me. They are wasting their time with this because I am not a competitive person, ambitious yes but not competitive, I'll do something and I'll do it at my pace and to my own satisfaction, I wont compete against you. I believe that everyone has something to offer and deserves success and that no single person is better than any other. I dont compete against people and if I feel like I have become embroiled in a competition then I will stop whatever it is I am doing, I am me, you are you, and we all deserve to be judged on our own merit.
However, more recently the person has changed their style (and it has been a big change) and I can't help but think they have done so in an attempt to prove that they are better than I am. It annoys me that they have done this because it has gone hand in hand with a patronising manner and distancing themselves except for when they are fishing for information. I know that we are all different and go about things in different ways but I dont want anything to do with it. If you think that you are better than me then you are, because whatever I say in response, you will look down at me and say I dont know what I am talking about (thats because you think you're better than me). I am sure we all know someone lilke this.
So the purpose of my rant is to say; lets not compare ourselves to anyone else but to accept ourselves as we are; lets make changes in our lives for ourselves and not for anyone else; lets treat others how we expect to be treated.
Just be you, embrace your worth for you are valued, compete with yourself to be a better you, remember one person isnt better than another and that we all have something to offer.
More importantly, however similar you are to someone else, remember that you are different in equal measure and that is what makes you unique.
Now, be honest, who expected my rant to end like that?
