Superficial ego-boosting memes

Superficial ego-boosting memes

Internet trolls are one of the reasons I don’t agree with superficial ego-boosting memes like:

“You’re perfect.”, “You’re awesome.”, “You’re beautiful just the way you are.”

Because the fact is, we’re all a work-in-progress and everyone has room for improvement.

Especially people who spend their time trying to make life difficult for others.

Memes like this may get a lot of likes on social media, but I don’t believe that blanket statements like “You’re beautiful” shared with complete strangers are sincere sentiments.

They’re simply superficial ego-boosters. They don’t help (and if they do “help”, they don’t help long).

It’s better and much more effective to tell people how you feel about them directly than it is to just spew compliments to the masses in hope for likes in return.

As for being beautiful, perfect, and awesome…

Refuse to quit

Excerpt from: Life isn’t fair.

refuse-to-quit-zero-dean-sky

No matter what life throws your way, no matter how unfair it may seem, refuse to play the victim. Refuse to be ruled by fear, pessimism, and negativity. Refuse to quit.

Be a warrior and work through whatever challenges you face in life with courage, love, and positivity. And continually push forward.

Because you are a survivor of the unfairness of life. You are stronger than you think. And you are capable of achieving far more than you believe.
