Why do so many people absessed with being like rest of the world. Well at least like people they know or the ones that succeeded in something. Why do people are so afraid of standing out? Look at me. My life is not similar to lives of most people my age. Im 26 . Unmarried and no kids. I don’t have house or car. I don’t even have a normal job. Helping disabled brother is not a dream job I guess. I don’t go on holidays or business trips. I can continue for quite a bit the list of what I dont have. But what I have is more important to me. I am a Christian! I was birn in place where I can freely confess God. I can tell people about God and nobody pursues me. I have the most amazing family that loves me and I love them. Im not suffering any pain . I can move, talk and eat! I have enough food and clothes! This is great! Dont you think?
Maybe for somebody my life is quite different. God gave me this life. He could send me to be born as a billionaire. But He didnt. He gave me this life. Maybe sometimes its full of tears and prayers. But I feel happy. I can be defined by what I have because my profits are nonmaterial.
Recently I was talking with one friend. We are not very close. And she was like « What? You live in France? Why dont you post pictures in instagram or facebok?? » You see. She didnt care what church I attend or did I meet new people. She was wondering about my gainings from moving to France. Her life is showed in social media. And I dont judge her. I have social media accounts and post stuff like 10 times a year. I think its a great tool to connect people that are separated with great distances. But some people use it to show every little detail of their life. Rejoice to every “Like” or “Share” try to get more followers. As for me I dont want to be measured by followers or likes. I dont need to prove someone that I have beautiful life. I dont need to prove online or between people that Im valued. Because my values are hard to fit in a picture.
Blessings to you.
