"The story of your life is not your life. It is your story." In other words, it is your story that matters, not the facts of your life. Our life stories are like permanent tapes playing in our heads. Over and over, we replay the events and interactions with people that are important to our lives, attempting to make sense of them and using them to find our place in the world.
Hey! If you are reading this, I am happy because I have an important message to tell you.
I just watched a random video on youtube and given my first "dislike button" ever...
It sounds weird to share something I don't like (or more I don't agree with), it's not my style.
But I think people should notice the positives from negatives. This is the reason of why I'm writing this now. It does sound confusing.
Let me explain what I was thinking after I watched this video.
A very big realization from this video is - people should not spread a message of they feel happy even hurting their lives and bodies. You might say, Monica, in this video, is achieving her goal, isn't it a good thing? A goal is something which can improve your life, make you a better person. Some people rob, they feel happy; some kill people to make themselves happy. Those are "goals" to a certain group of mindless people(sorry if it's rude to say so as there must be exceptional cases). Think about it, are they healthy to us, to the people surround us or the society?
I also have to state some wrong concepts, the one we should not follow :
1) "Back in the Egyptian ages, the fatter you're, the more loved you're, I guess." said Monica. (1:00)
- obviously, she made a wrong guess. I'm not trying to be offensive, but I don't think in the past, women wanted to be as weighty as 1000lbs.
2) She gained support and earned money through social media. She mentioned she received money from certain guys for food every month. I'm not telling you to hate her for this behavior, instead, we should support her, in a more positive way, tell her to go on diet, offer her weight loss surgery in order to keep her alive. (3:20)
3) Monica told her mom that her personal goal is to become 1000 pounds (5:03), and that makes her feel happy... Then, her mom asked : to be not able to take care yourself? and described it's miserable...
Up to this point... I know we have been learning don't judge others by their outlooks, this is not an issue about how we judge others. It is about the responsibility to the family, spouse, or just yourself. Love your family, love yourself!
I shared this video and I disliked it. I believe we all can learn something positives from the negatives (at least for me.) It is still an "inspiring" video.
