(Noir) Blow the candle

(Noir) Blow the candle
This photo is my first for the “Noir” series inspired by my current song obsession of the same title by South Korean artist, Sunmi. The song talks about how far people go for likes and follows even if it means losing their true selves, or worse, putting themselves or others in dangerous situations. We’ve seen stuff like this on Youtube and other social media platforms that sometimes led to people involved getting hurt or even ending in fatality. It always has me thinking, “Is having a massive following really worth all that?”

Check out Sunmi’s song here and take the jump for photo credits!

Nothing but a reject…

Nothing but a reject _ body

Have you ever stopped and wondered how many times you have worked hard to impress other people yet it’s never good enough? You exert effort, stress yourself out… only ending up disappointed that things didn’t go the way you hoped it would. You feel like a failure and wonder what it is about you that people don’t like. Am I too plain? Am I not doing the right thing? Before you know it, you fall into this negative state of mind wherein you are convinced that no matter how hard you try, you are nothing but a reject. I’ve been on that boat quite a few times and it wasn’t exactly a festive Disney cruise. I felt uninspired and wanted to give up. The passion that was once burning inside of me was slowly dying.

Although it is difficult, it is helpful to be able to recognize the right people who you should keep by your side. People who would catch you when you fall, encourage you to try again, and give you a good beating when your feet start to float too high above the ground.

When all else fails, step aside and find another perspective. Get a breath of fresh air…

Nothing but a reject _ face

Be it Second Life or the real deal, remember that you should do things because you love doing it, because it makes you happy. A successful career and a hefty paycheck is nothing if you do not enjoy your work. There is nothing wrong with trying to please others because the feeling of “being accepted” is something needed by human beings in order to grow emotionally. However, it is not possible to please everybody. You will have haters, doubters calling you ugly, fat, stupid, and/or other negative adjective they could think of… and that’s okay as long as you are happy with who you are, you enjoy doing what you are doing, and not harming somebody else. No matter what, DO NOT lose yourself in the process of pleasing others. Stay true, do your thing, and leave the rest of the work to the universe… ❤
