“I’m not calling you a loser, but I’m describing the characteristics of a loser and saying this is you.”
We all need help or guidance. Celebrities have managers and a PR team. Regular people have family and friends that put their input in their lives. They speak up when they think you are hurting yourself physically, financially, or emotionally. At this point of my life I know what I want. I know what’s best for me.
Knowing where the advice is coming from is important. People have their own perspective of what they deem important. My dad wants me to return to be a Jehovah’s Witness, because Armageddon is coming. My sister believes my life is empty without a man, so she sends me things to read on what men want.
My best friend feels financial gain is the key to happiness. His “by any means necessary” approach has me looking like a loser in his eyes, because I’m not willing to try everything and anything for financial gain.
