I’m convinced we have a self-seeking, self-loving generation that refuses to dig deep within themselves and realize they are the problem.
Not their mother, father, sister, brother or friends-but them. When you look in the mirror you are looking at yourself; no one else.
I’ve grown up in the ghetto my whole life however, I refuse to be that way. I rise above my surroundings.
We’re in a generation that points the finger at everyone else saying, “My daddy leaving me is the reason why I can’t commit to any relationship.” Or, “My mom didn’t raise me right, that’s why I behave this way.” Or the classic, “My friends convinced me to do it.”
We live in a generation that repeatedly says, “I’m doing me,” yet they, themselves, are mimicking every rapper, singer, or entertainer. Carbon copies NEVER outshine the original.
I thought “doing me” meant I’m different. While everyone else is out there doing that, I’m a do this. When I look around I don’t see any uniqueness. This is one lazy generation that doesn’t want to think of anything new, instead they rather take what someone already has. Instead they would rather copy someone else’s actions.
Is it wrong to desire to be like someone else? Yes, when God created you to be you, and only YOU. How are you going to be different trying to blend in with everyone else? You can’t!
You can’t continue to shred your personality for a phony one. In the end you will end up lost, confused, and void of your own identity. You can’t find YOUR purpose trying to live someone else’s life.
Stop copying and begin to make your own mark. It’s never too late to begin picking up the pieces again and begin creating your own puzzle. You only get one life, live your own. Otherwise YOU aren’t really living.
