Life is confusing sometimes or maybe every time, even that's confusing. Sometimes you feel so powerful surrounded by people who you love, it is really a feeling where everyone just likes you or love you, you have their attention, and there are sometimes when you feel lonely, suicidal and insignificant. Where you just wait for other’s approval, their respect, their everything. It is really a task to just get others attention and prove to them that you are significant, you are different and creative, you are worthy of love, romance and those short tangy jokes that lit us up.

There are times when you just find yourself in front of multiple paths, in the dark, no sunlight to make you shine or to put a smile on your face. Where most of the times you choose the wrong path, again and again, and all of a sudden it becomes your guilty pleasure. You start enjoying those big and small mistakes at one point and start regretting those decisions at another. Personally, I never wanted to regret or mourn, but it comes naturally. You know, when you just set a rule for yourself, and then you don't follow it, again and again, that makes me crazy, I just wonder sometimes how I couldn’t put my values into the formula that I created for myself, for my welfare, for my future.

I am past those moments, I am past of guilty pleasure. I have accepted the rule of nature, where you just make the same mistakes again and again because we are humans. we are not robots who run on a line, who walks straight and come back straight, we are a human being, we are creative, futuristic, focused and unfocused, egoistic, acoustic, beautiful, black and white, re-active and pro-active, musically addicted, drug-addicted, self-obsessed, narcissistic, confident, alcoholic, attached, time bounded, tattooed, expressing, playing, entertaining, unbalanced, judgemental, hysterical, uncontrollable, dominating, sexist, gay, inspiring, motivating, joyous, amusing and a lot of words that are facts, additionally with their synonyms. Never criticize yourself how wrong you were about that mistakes that you made, though make it sure that they never happen again, make it sure through a substantial process.

The Internet came to us like an angel but is becoming a hell of our lives, a different kind of hell, where you are supposed, to tell the truth to everyone but you just pretend like you are a part of that elite group, those premium people, and you are living the best life, but, are you?

Are you happy with who you are, with what you breathe in, with what vibe you produce from your soul to the others? If you just want to satisfy yourself once again, then you can say yes, but if you are not, believe me, you are not living the best life, you are living the worst one. How somebody can be different when you find yourself on Instagram again and again, those repetitive thick lips, that repetitive curvy ass, those same quotes that inspired you yesterday, will not inspire you once again, you will crave new motivation, new aspiration, new ambitions, you will need the new. Let me help you to face the reality and give you some really helpful tips how you can really and authentically stay happy, without any approval of any other human being, without posting those lame stories and filtered selfies, that you surround yourself with:

Stay in peace, because some things are exaggerated by historical events and movies, once you see them, your subconscious mind starts drawing inferences from those movies and you start becoming like it, you start acting, you start to pretend.

Do your thing, because social approval is a myth, I understand the gravity of the basic fact that social approval is totally pleasurable dopamine shots that come in pieces to us through our phone or some other media or device, it all came from the human society of culture and belief, living in synergy, existing with collaboration and getting dependent for the same, but you are just waiting for somebody to give you a check, so that does mean that you are letting them dominate you, not physically but mentally in an indirect way, it is too much pressure, isn’t it? So start following your own will.

Don’t worry about money, it will follow you once you do the great work. Money is something we all ignore to talk about, nobody in relations talks about their salaries and paycheck out in the open, but we like to gossip about it, manipulate others to get the information, just wanted to know what are you exactly worth. The importance of money also includes one of the biggest myth, social status, what others will say, what others will think, what others will have the first impression about, it is all fake, its nothing but wasteful stress that we carry on our mighty shoulders. Stop doing that as soon as possible.

Workout every day because it challenges you, it stops you from doing what you want to do, it cripples the breathing, it cripples your comfort zone. Even just jogging for a continuous period of 20 minutes will make you stronger and a better person. Lifting weights looks awesome on social media but requires dedication to do it again and again and again. Months will pass by, but you will have no results, you will ask yourself, belittle your self that why did you waste your energy, time, money & will, but it will be all worth it.

In the end, I just want to say that, don't just scratch your head, scratch your will, scratch that unexplored potential in you, and be certain.
