60 Pontificating “just because”

 

-       Just because one is fertile it means one should become a parent(s). Just because one can marry it means one should marry.

-       Just because one can get what they want, when they want, from whom they want it means they should take advantage.

-       Just because one is popular it means that one is loved.

-       Just because one knows some things it means one knows everything or should have opinions about all things.

-       Just because one looks nice it means that one is nice.

-       Just because one is handsome or beautiful it means one is of good character. Physical attractiveness is not a barometer or testament to decency, kindness and integrity

 

Just because is an assumption carried by a perception however it is not a definition of whom or what one should or could be. Place more value on self; do not get carried away by the voice of everyone else

Think…

Accept…

Embrace…

Love yourself…

Stop wishing to be someone else, anyone else, anybody else but yourself and start living.

Do not allow your SELF to drown in the envy of everybody else or saturate in the petty jealousies of everything else.

You are enough as you,

Perfectly imperfect

Learn to love it,

Learn to love YOU.

Why…..

Because you are worthy

Because the infinite quandaries of “Just because” leads to physic torture, leading you on all fours if you are not hip to the cause, the rhyme and the reason for its toxicity. 

Just be yourself.

Just because is not a justifiable reason to overindulge no matter how reasoned it seems nor is it a good rationale to give up free will and choice.

  2. I think is okay to aspire to act like someone but to many of us get caught up with trying to be someone else. You can’t be someone else, you can only be yourself, because nobody can do you better than you can.Good post.

  4. You could emulate someone you admire and aspire to be like them but like Chocolate said you shouldn’t try to be them. Good, strong, confident, role models are still required.

  5. I know that wasn’t what you were going for, but after reading this I can’t help but think about when a parent tells their child, "Because I said so!" Maybe because I am definitely guilty!

    Have a great day!

  11. Whatever I read here, I start looking deep inside of myself and REALLY think about who I am and what I am doing with myself & my life. Your words come alive inside of me and I look at how I behave,inwardly and out; and what I genuinely accomplish for myself & those around me, wherever I may be.. I do not look at the day past or the one to come…yesterday is just that & tomorrow is going to be ALL that I make of it>>will I laugh from deep inside of me, and help others laugh? Will I make ‘good’ use of my time to help myself before I help others? Will I cry for any? reason, or for myself?…for joy/sorrow….crying releases me from any pain in my soul and then I feel whole again in His eyes.I do not need to keep questioning anything. I am myself and those who choose to know me, will.Those I feel the need to protect myself from,will never know, because they really don’t want to find out I am human. I love your beautiful thoughts/words BECAUSE they are!!

  19. Just because some one writes beautifully,it doesnt become true.But in this case it is both beautiful and true.We always tend to create a halo around persons based on success in any one field and attribute greatness in every trait.A successful politician,an incredible soccer player, a consistent cricketer,a Nobel laureate or best selling author all have their clay feet.Emulate the desirable traits and be yourself is the message

  20. They want they want they should take advance tag.
    Some things it means one knows every thing one knows if means every thing annoy all things.

    just because one looks means of good character physical is not
    barometer however not adefin it on of whom or could be shovld ok.
    Do not get carried away by the voice of every yone clso.
    That's a bit of an increase in just a few months.craly cnagy

    Special cake start after golf at lunch about 1 pm.
    Think anybody yourself of every thing else.
    you are enough as you learn to love it.

    Because you are worthy leads to physic tortore if you are not bit to the reson for its toxicity a good rationale will choice.

    1. Though there is nothing wrong with admiring someone for accomplishments it is wise that we put that admiration in prespective and understand that we all have the ability to aspire to great things and it is not exclusive to any one person regardless of socio-economic status.

      In everything there is choice and for every choice there is a consequence we just have to decide (again choice) what we can live with.

  25. There is so much of difference between what is and what we see. You put it so well- being popular does not mean one is loved!! Quantity always does not mean quality. I would rather have one or two good friends than a million acquaintances!We also assume that people are nice because they look beautiful which may not be. I have a bias against "good looking" people. The moment I see a beautiful woman I immediately assume that she must be a B-T-H.. I guess I go by the law of averages where that has been my experience. So I am pleasantly surprised when I actually find some beautiful women being genuinely nice. So I guess it is our own biases and beliefs that guide us through life.

    1. Absolutely, it is why we always have to be cognoscente of how we think and behave understanding how it impacts what we see, how we judge and treat others and hold ourselve accountable.

    1. Hi Ibifiri, I visit my followers (as well as browse through bloggersvilie), I comment on the things they shared with us, what i've learned and how in walking empathically through the experience I gain while reading communicating back how what I’ve read has influence how i know view the situation/circumstance shared.

      I also respond to their comments here because some come back to see the response. I like the open dialogue we have so much to learn from each other.

      Thank you, yes is it much simpler being ourselves if only we'd give ourselves permission to just be, love and be loved.

      Thanks for coming.

  27. Lovely and insightful pontificating :)

    Each day and each step, I try to be honest with myself because sometimes, we can be so blinded by what other people or society wants from us.

    1. Oh Myne that is so true, it is so easy to fool ourselves, self-delusion, have mercy it can lead us into destructive traps that continually spirals downward if we are not quick enough to caught ourselves in the midst of poor judgment and self-delusion.

      I find it much easier to stay true and honest to even when everything and everyone challenges me do otherwise for the sake of solidarity.

      Thanks for coming and sharing your wisdom.
