JKLTip Be conscious of who your heroes are, try to look up to people that support your mental health, gratitude, true passions and sustainability
We have heroes we look up to. Sometimes we pick them, other times it seems they pick us. Whether we realize it or not, we try to emulate others, implicit, or explicit, conscious or subconscious. We act like a pop culture icon, athlete, or musician. Walk, talk, or act like them, but it’s not sustainable. In the short term something we want, long term (and sometimes very quickly) fades, or implodes
I’ve come to believe that it is fine to want to be a lyricist like Eminem, or gamer like Pewdie Pie, but all the while have the moral compass like that of the Buddha, Allah, Jesus, or Whatever. While I don’t overly preach organized religion, I constantly hear people professing that they are atheists because God doesn’t exist, the Bible is fake stories and so on. When you look at the principles, the values it’s hard not to ask why not be like them?
Essentially you get to hedge your personality bets, give yourself the best of both worlds in terms of being a person. This way your narrative can be geared towards helping you shine your light for you and for others all the time, forever, rather than up, down and fading fast.
