What Is The Meaning of Life?

Image

This is a very popular question and there are so many different answers to this question. A lot of teens ask this when considering suicide but you shouldn’t question whether your life is worth living because although it is full of ups and downs, there are so many different opportunities to experience, things to discover and to learn about everything around you. Everyone has their own answer to this question but each and every one of us want to achieve different things in life.

In order to find out the meaning of YOUR life, think about what keeps you going and what makes your life worth living because without that person or people, object or whatever it is, you won’t enjoy your life as it is. If you are a religious person, then your religion might be your answer. Perhaps you want to achieve something important to your religion in your life to prove you are a strong and committed believer. Think about your whereabouts, your friends and family around you, they might be the ones that contribute to the meaning of your life. When you go searching for the meaning of your life, you aren’t looking for the significance, you are just blind because you aren’t aware of what is the true value. “By searching for the meaning of your life, it is more likely that it’ll be harder to find your answer but when you embrace life, the answer will come to you.” (Another awesome quote I just made up!)

Personally, my meaning of life is… to chase my dreams and do more of what makes me happy, make a difference to the world and become noticed for something helpful that I have or will do. I want to learn about this world, all the different cultures, experience different and new things that I would never try and hopefully do this with a group of close friends. I want to become the best possible version of me and to do something that’ll make me proud to be me. Seeking happiness and just simply enjoying life is another big thing I want to accomplish. As you can see there are so many things that mean to me and what I want to find out in my life is the answer to this question, “What is the meaning of life?”

I understand that everyone will have different things, they want to accomplish and particular things they want to experience or do but no matter how diverse everyone’s views and meanings are, we all want to achieve and do something with our lives. Even if you don’t know, what you want to do now or what the meaning of your life is yet, no matter how old or young you are, one day you’ll realise what it is you want to achieve and to become as a person.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog and eventually find out what you want to do. Thanks for reading xoxo

Stop Judging

Image

I’ve noticed that a lot of people judge each other especially teens. To be honest, I don’t really know why people do this, do we gain anything from it? The only reason I can think of is it that when we judge people we assume the better looking people can achieve more and are just overall better people. In actual fact, by doing this we are normally wrong but because it is a habit, we cannot get out of it. There are so many stereotypes that we often base our judgements on that person’s specific stereotype.

Unfortunately, some people always judge and can never get out of the ‘routine’. It doesn’t help you in life so if you think you are a judgmental person then you need to get out of that habit because it isn’t going to impact you in a good way. I’ve recognised that a lot of people in my school judge each other and this often causes a lot arguments. Even after these arguments happen, the people still decide to do what they do. I think even after multiple times of having arguments with people won’t open their eyes to what they do, something big would have to happen for them to realise what they do.

Judging has a bad outcome and that is missing some people with amazing qualities. Just imagine if you are criticising a new person that joins your school, you don’t have a clue about who they are or their personality. You may judge them on their name, race, religion, looks or something else but the point you are missing is that person is a loyal, trustworthy and fun persona and because of your judgemental nature, you have missed a great friend and possibly a life long best friend. Before you ever judge someone, put yourself into their shoes, if you were new somewhere or looking for a new group of friends etc would you want to be judged on your looks or past decisions. If you had ever made a bad decision in your past and you were judged for that, would you ever get anywhere in life?

I don’t know if I have ever been judged by others but I know friends that have been by other people. I can tell you that being judged isn’t the best feeling in the world and it consistently feels like that you are being overlooked by someone else. I can’t even imagine feeling like this, walking into school or your job area and feeling like that a specific group of people are always talking about you. If a group of people are criticising you, it’s probably because they are jealous of something you have or can do. You should be reassured that people aren’t judging you but that they are envying you because that lets you know you are doing well with your life and that you pursue a living that people envy.

When you try to find new friends or become part of a new friendship group, the people should accept you even if you have something wrong in your past. I can assure you that all of the people in that group have done something wrong, you shouldn’t worry about your past because that is in the PAST and if bad things have happened then they should be forgotten like everyone else has forgotten their bad past. If the people in that group are judging you then they aren’t the right people to make friends with.

If you haven’t seen this film, Beauty and The Beast, then you need to watch it. If you have seen the film then you know that this picture perfecting represents why you shouldn’t judge people. Under everyone’s looks, they could have the best personality without you realising but you have to get to know them before you judge them.

Q&A Time!

Image

As you all probably know that I am doing a Q&A because I mentioned it in my previous blog, if you haven’t read my previous blog then go ahead and check it out. I shall commence with all the questions!

Why did you start your blog?

I felt like I had lots of thoughts and opinions of what teens go through and I just wanted to share them somewhere. I also had a lot of advice I wanted to give but didn’t really have anyone to give it to so I thought putting it on a blog could help someone if they ever came across my blog.

Do you want to continue your blog into the future?

Yes, I do. I hope that more people can come across my blog and enjoy the things I write about. This blog has actually impacted me in a good way so I would definitely not stop writing.

What do you want to do with your life?

I’ve actually got a plan for my future funnily enough. First, I’d like to finish all my GCSEs, go to 6th form and study psychology for my A levels. Then go to university and study languages, psychology and more. Then I’d take a rest from studying and travel around the world for a year or so. Once I come back, hopefully get a job as a psychiatrist, keep my blog as a hobby and finally get married and have children.

Would you ever start a serious YouTube channel?

This has been on my mind for a little while but I’ve been thinking I might start one when this blog reaches a year old or when I reach 200 followers. I’m not entirely sure yet but once I make my mind up, I will let you all know.

If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be?

I have spent a very long time thinking about this and I’d have to say no celebrity. I know it sounds kind of cheesy but I’d rather meet the people who read my blog because to be quite honest they mean more to me rather than any other celebrity. Meeting one of you reading would be amazing and getting to know you would just be great too.

First kiss?

I don’t actually remember who I had my first kiss with but it was when I was 6 but it wasn’t a proper one, it was just a peck.

What’s your all time favourite song?

I love so many songs but my all time favourite song is “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” by Shania Twain. This song just reminds me of the good old days when I was young, my auntie and I used to dance around in the living room and I remember not having a care in the world and just loving the song and dancing around. I really miss my childhood.

Would you rather have feet for hands or hands for feet?

I’d rather have hands for feet because I could just write so much quicker and play the piano with them. That’d be so weird but cool!

What’s your favourite hobby?

My favourite hobby is climbing trees because it’s fun to climb them so high and once you get to the top, the view is amazing. When it’s a sunny breezy day, it’s so nice to just sit down in the tree, embrace the silence and have the wind blow through your hair. It’s one of life’s best feelings and it just helps me forget about what is going on around me.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?

It might sound really bizarre but I’d love to go to Antarctica, it seems so nice and peaceful. The snow, the wildlife, just everything. I can imagine there being a nice silence and just be able to watch the animals pass by life.

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s blog and I might do something like this again in the future. Thanks for reading xoxo

 

Frenemies

Image

Have you ever been in a situation with a ‘friend’ and ever thought if they are actually your friend? I know I have and to be honest it’s hard to tell if they are your friend or not because usually the person has done this more than once and is a master at it. In your life you are going to come across at least one frenemy and I am telling you now, prepare for bitchiness, back stabbing and rumours. You can defeat this ‘friend’ as long as you stay strong, do and say nothing bad about anyone and have a good group of friends supporting you because they are going to be the people that’ll keep you fighting.

At first you probably won’t be able to tell if someone is your friend or foe but there are slight giveaways that will alert you. One of the main ones is when something good happens to you e.g. winning an award for something they will snigger at you or roll their eyes when you start to talk about it. This should be easy to recognise if this consistently happens so look out for this because this is one of the biggest giveaways. Also another clue is when they gossip about you to your other friends, if you have one particular friend that you know you can trust ask them to listen out for what the other person says. I know it sounds a bit odd but you don’t want someone to talk about you behind your back and after all you want to know they truth to sort it all out. You should confront them and if they lie to your face then you know that the aren’t your true friend.

Once you have stood up to them, their behaviour might have rubbed onto you a little and you might not be aware of it but you might be turning into them a little but if you honestly can’t tell yourself that you have changed then get one of your friends to tell you because if you don’t change soon then it could get worse and you don’t want to turn into a backstabbing friend. If you have changed then try to go back to your old self, it’s for the best and it could affect your friendship group.

After a while if you feel like confronting your frenemy was a bad idea then don’t regret it because if you didn’t do it then you would still have to live with their nasty side comments and not being able to be confident within your friendship group because you were afraid that they would take the mick out of you. You shouldn’t regret anything you do, as long as you do it for your benefits and you feel the decision is sensible and you are comfortable with it then who cares of what other people think.

I don’t really understand why people do this, they don’t get any reward out of it and it just creates a bad image of them. The only reason I can think of is that they get satisfaction from it but it is definitely not a good type of satisfaction, if someone enjoys degrading someone with their comments and making them feel unsure about themselves then I don’t know what type of person they are because personally why would anyone want to do that. If you dislike someone then tell them to their face because if you don’t it just creates rumours and arguments, if you cannot tell that person face to face then it shows that you aren’t a very strong or confident person within yourself and it proves that you should keep your thoughts to yourself. Once you have spoken to them you have to stick by your words because denying them will just make you look like less of a person. This saying is true, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all”, I wish more people would stick to this because this would help avoid a lot of arguments and rumours being spread.

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog and that you can find those frenemies in your group. Next week I’ll be doing a Q&A so you can tweet me @CestLaVie_Blog, write on my Facebook page or comment down below! Thanks for reading xoxo
