You Are Not Special

One Simple Realization 

You are not special. You heard me right! You are not special. No, this is not my infamously known typos and... I will tell you why in just a minute. Raise your hand if you feel like your life is not where you want it to be? Or if your life mimics the uninterested emoji  which looks like it is neither here nor there.  I see a few raises there!  Now, what if I told you that you could change all of that with a one simple realization? Knowing that......

You Are Not Special! OUCH. 

What did you ever to do deserve this? You did one very small but significant thing, you assumed the world revolves around you and that you are a flying unicorn who encounters special things. Don't believe me? How many times have you looked at weightloss transformations and gone like you can't do this cause you are so and so, how many times have you heard an inspirational story and been inspired but next moment cited your "problems" as reasons to why you can't achieve them? If you are anything like me, by which I mean human I say many many times!

Knowing that you are not special does two things: First, you stop making those excuses. Second, when you are really in the mood to act like the lead in the movie who is feeling low and whose life is not going as planned you realize there are other people in the same spot as you. You feel me? I never say "You feel me" I just tried something new, cause I know I can and that me being being a certain way should not stop me for saying what I need to say. We are moving off topic let's zoom in again.

Everybody Feels 

So here it is:

You are not special because .......
everyone has to deal with difficult situation
everyone has to deal with difficult people or some one like trump :/
everyone hurts
everyone understands pain
everyone gets lonely
everyone feels lost
everyone feels uninspired
everyone gets their heart broken
everyone fails at least once

Your Mom Was Wrong

So next time you push off something because you feel uninspired or sad or upset know that everyone does and it is time you got over yourself and realize Your mom was wrong, YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL. You are like everyone else, if they can do it, so can you.
