Look at your mates
Good day to you all here on readcash. My family, friends, and loved ones. It’s always a privilege to be here among you all and I would always remain a soul who would be grateful for my existence.
Life is good and also amazing by the way. Most times we just have to live our lives to the fullest and make sure we create happiness on our own. No one is responsible to make you happy, they might be a reason to be happy but they came to make you happy if you didn’t want it for yourself.
There are times when we strive to make the best out of what we do, we hustle to make sure things are put in place and that’s basically what life is all about. Most times it’s always cool to be who you are and not compare your life with others.
We all have different lives to live. Even twins that are given birth on the same day never got the same fate. They would always have specific traits that make them differ from each other.
Siblings from the same parents never got similar fates too; they have different complexion and also different heights. They have their different characters too and that’s just the way it is. You can’t compare yourself with your brother or sister even though you grew up together not to talk of your friends.
You might be rich and yet your siblings won’t, there is nothing you can do about that. There are times when the elderly one would not make it in life and the youngest of them all would be the breadwinner of the family. That doesn’t mean the first child or other children never tried, it’s just that that’s what they are destined to have then
The same thing applies to a rich man, the riches he has today can’t solve everything. So the QUOTE never underestimates the power of a common man because you never can tell who would come to your aid tomorrow.
It might be that very person you dislike the most or even that enemy of yours. So why spread hatred toward people instead of sharing love and care?
Before I digress from the topic. The phrase “look at your mates” has sent a lot of people to a pit of no return. And most times this doesn’t come willingly but has a force that would push one to the wall and if care is not taken then there would be no choice left but to go for it.
This is when an individual gets to think about his way of life and then compares it to that of his/her mates without knowing what that person might have passed through before getting there. For example, someone driving a car to classes and his friends also decided to feel among and want to get a car for themselves too.
He never knew that the car his friend was driving was given to him by his dad who is a wealthy man. Meanwhile, he never came from a rich background yet he wants to be like or even be better than his friend. This would make him run a race that he shouldn’t have run which might lead him astray.
The second cause of this is the parent or guardian of a child or individual. Most times we hear from our parents that “look at what your mate did” they forget that that mate of ours has a different fate and a different world from ours.
They would want us to be better than them in a forceful manner instead of them to sit us down and then discover our talented area, focusing on it, and make sure they build us to where we wish by supporting us.
If all parents could do this to a child there is no way those children won’t shine in their area of specialization. For example, a child who loves athletes but his parent must have seen the son of her neighbor who is a doctor and have earned a lot of money build a house for his parent, with that they would have to enforce their child to become a doctor like him, meanwhile, the child would have been a great musician who would make the parent so proud only if they had focused of his area of specialization and supported him by all means.
I put this to be the last of it all because this might occur to anyone at any point in our lives. And these two walk hand in hand. Greediness and covetousness are two things that result from lacking one thing which is contentment. Once a human lacks contentment then there is no way they won’t rush and run a race that isn’t theirs because they would always want more and never be satisfied or you see them craving for things their hands can never grab.
I am not saying we shouldn’t try to make a better life for ourselves. But let’s be considerate too and also know when to run and when to stop. We should try to work hard, have patience and endurance, be content and never lose focus. With all these, the best of it all is to be ourselves. This way we would realize that not only do we see ourselves at the top but we see people looking up to us.
