A poor choice of words
Earlier today I posted a short quote explaining my thoughts on life and it got reblogged.
But some of the rebloggers clearly didnt understand what I was trying to say and its really upset me because the context they placed it in was so far removed from what was actually meant.
“You can either feel sorry for yourself and give up or get that shit done. Just do it.”
I moved out of my parents place to a new city about six months ago to try and make it. In the time that I’ve been here I’ve experienced rejection and the projects I’ve started have mostly failed
Some of it was out of my control others were entirely my fault and at those times its easy to feel low, to want to give up and go home. To quit.
But it takes real strength to pick yourself up off the ground, dust yourself off, figure out what you did wrong then try again.
I was lucky enough to attend a talk given by Eric Schmidt head of google who gave everyone this advice. Fail fast and its advice I really want to live by, fail fast means don’t be afraid to try something but recognise when it isn’t working then do something else until you find something that does work.
Unfortunately some of the rebloggers didn’t see the positive message in my quote and I know that because their blogs are devoted to self harm and depression.
I just cant understand how someone could feel that way about themselves, its beyond my comprehension, I know it sounds stupid when I say it out loud but honestly?
I’m awesome and if other people dont like me then thats their problem, if they judge me based on my looks then screw them, their shallow assholes and really not worth my time.
If my life isn’t what I want it to be then there’s no one to blame but myself.
