We all want to be better. The best version of us that we could possibly be. We want to be liked, loved, looked up to, and cherished. We want to be appreciated. And we under no circumstances want to be left behind, ignored and have a bad image. Right?
Well since both of us agree on that. I decided to help you out with few tips.
- STOP the bullshit
Yes, I am serious. Stop looking for tips that can make you a better person. It will not make you a better person. The tips will just make you, well, more likable, less conflicting, more “mainstream” if you want.
Most tips I’ve seen about how to become a better person target on making people seem easily agreeable to, a sheep in the crowd. Those tips tell people to be nice, polite, wisely quiet when needed to and never, never outspoken about how they really think.
2. But the tips so heartwarming and relatable…
Writing the “tips on how to” kind of posts are simply mind games, something to attract readers. Because hey, everyone wants to know a shortcut to something. Anyone would want to know how to quickly fix something regarding themselves. But there’s no such thing. All those posts do is either they make you feel good about yourself, or they just make you feel like you’re stupid. Like anyone could come up with THAT. Right?!
So yeah, those posts are simply there to attract people, a marketing scam. They are mostly written in a way where people can easily agree with it. The tips are simple and mostly something really common. Something you knew already, but didn’t pay attention to it, or you didn’t want to pay attention ot.
Also, there is no bulletproof way to make you better. Deep down you’ll stay the same, no matter how you act. Are you sure you want to follow “tips” of someone who have no idea about you? I mean I wouldn’t. They don’t know me, yet they are making tips on how to make me better?! How can they know that I’m not already doing my best. How can they know that what they’re saying is going to make me better, if they don’t even know if what they’re suggesting is even acceptable in my society?
3. However… it’s backed up with science!
“Scientists say that whistling will make you happy.”
All that’s on internet and is labeled with “scientists say” is not always true. As an example, I obviously made up the whistling thing. I mean sure there are researches about the topic for sure, but unless you have a link or citation of a scientific article that is backed up by another scientist, it’s most likely just a load of crap.
4. It still makes me feel good!
Well I never said you shouldn’t follow the tips. I just said that I wouldn’t. But of course it will make you feel good. Following the tips will give you the feeling of achievement and that usually feels good. You might also feel like a better person, since we’re on the topic, but it doesn’t mean you’ll actually change. Well you might, but, will you be happy with that?
5. So that the heck do I do?!
Be yourself! Whoever you are, nice, mean, tough or weak. Just be you. Because you can be the best you ever! Yes something being you will bite you in the ass and you’ll just WISH to change something about yourself, like be less shy and more outspoken or be more quiet because your blabber mouth gets you in trouble. Or maybe you just want to be nicer, because people think you’re an asshole. Please stop, you’ll find your soulmates, people that will be happy to have you just the way you are. Of some extend of taming and adapting yourself is needed in live, or you’ll either get used or kicked out of work. But still anything can and will change, you just have to figure out how to be yourself, even if that pisses off everyone around you. (Sometimes that’s needed.)
Wait! Did I actually write the 5 tips?! Oh, nope, I just made 5 points about tips. The only tip I can give you is. Live your life however you want it, as long as you don’t purposely make other people suffer because of it, after all, it’s your life.
Have a nice day and remember.
This is just my opinion.
