Food for Thought

So I’ve been super busy recently, I had exams going on for school, hence my lack of posts. Also, I do this weird thing where I start like 300 posts and don’t finish a single one.

I’m serious! I have like 7 drafts, and only one is even half-way.

The next post will probably be A Basket of Blueberries, Chapter 3 (if I ever get around to finishing it…). So no, I didn’t abandon that story like I did the first one I ever posted on this blog.

Anyway, just thought I’d make a small post for today, just to give everyone something to think about.

Is this who you are?

So the idea with this picture is to take a minute to reflect on your character and decide if this is who you are and who you want to be.

Is this how you want people to remember you, or is this the self you want people to think of when they think about you?

And yes, we will ignore the anime character in the picture and the fact that this was actually a meme from a video game, which is where I got the picture.

Anyway, meme aside, this picture is also a good chance to think.

So for today’s post (ha, I’m talking as if I post every day) I’d like all of you to reflect on the picture and decide if this is who you are.

By ourselves, we’re no one. It’s when other people look at us and see someone; that’s the moment we each start to exist

This is a quote from the same place, that also means a lot to me. Now, I’m not saying you should change who you are so other people like you, because those aren’t true friends.

The point of this quote is to further emphasise self-reflection. Everything we do is part of a long journey, a journey which we can’t make alone. Everyone needs friends to support them and to have their back.

True friends will tell you when you’ve done something wrong, and we should listen to what they say and take it in the best way possible. So today let’s reflect on ourselves and see what we can change to make ourselves better people.

That’s all for now. Wow, this post was deep. Ignoring the fact that I quoted from video games, of course.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed, definitely tell me your thoughts in the comments and yadda yadda. And of course, I hope you’re having a fantastic day.
