The Way I See It... Man In The Mirror

Hey guys! I'm really sorry that I haven't been able to post for a month. I have been super busy with school work as well as dealing with my mental health, it's fair to say I have had WAY too many breakdowns over the month. I did manage to tell a handful of friends about my mental health issues, they have been so lovely and supportive, they are the main reason for me finding a scrap of energy and getting my blog on track again. I think I might write a post about my mental state because I know how supportive and motivating you guys are, it means a lot to me. I would just like to add that my normal posting schedule for The Way I See It will remain the same, Friday at 5:30pm New Zealand Standard Time but I just couldn't wait until Friday.

I suppose I should get onto what the post is actually about now, haha! Today I'm going to be talking about making the world a better place by starting with yourself. I was inspired to write about this by Michael Jackson's song Man in The Mirror and Gandhi's quote "Be the change you wish to see in the world". Let's get into it!

I thought about the song and the quote and realised that it is very easy to get caught up in complaining about things you see other people do when you do them as well, I know I do this! This is unfair and, let's face it, it isn't very nice being called a hypocrite, no matter how true it may be!

Because of my realisation, I decided that I would make another golden rule. That rule is that before I open my mouth to complain, I will check if I do that thing (so basically check yourself before you wreck yourself, haha). I encourage you to join me on having this golden rule, psychologists say that it takes about three months for an action to become a habit so I will be reminding myself to remember my rule.

I hope you have enjoyed this post as much I have enjoyed writing it! Will you be joining me on being less of a hypocrite over the next three months? What are some of your golden rules for life? Tell me in the comments! Thank you again for reading, I will see you on Friday!

  2. This is definitely something I think everyone needs to make into a habit. I try my best to do this, but I don't always remember (oops) so I am going to try my very best to do so from now on!

    1. I completely agree with you! I think we all slip up but I think the world would be a better place if everybody tried to do this.

    1. Thank you so much Rainbow! My brain tries to convince me that nobody cares and I have always gotten lonely easily but having people like you and friends around me makes me feel cared for and loved.

      I'm glad to have you on my "Man In The Mirror" Team, haha. Thanks Rainbow, your creativity must be rubbing off on me, haha.
