Should We Change at the Expense of Others?

From a personal perspective, changing ourselves at the expense of others means we are putting ourselves in a position where we are made to change ourselves in order to be socially acceptable to everyone else.

I personally refuse to change myself at the expense of others because I am happy with who I am, what I look like, including how I present myself to other people.

So what, I don’t give a damn if some people don’t accept me just for being myself, at the end of the day, I refuse to let anyone change me so that I can appear acceptable to them.

It’s a messed up world, there’s no other way of describing this world, but at the end of the day, if no one can accept you for who you are, what you look like, including how you present yourself to others, and if they expect you to change yourself at their expense, forget them and just be yourself and never change for anyone.

Never change yourself.

If you feel what I have said here is powerful and eye-opening, please let me know. I would love to know if I inspired you as I want to inspire you all and for you to be yourselves and to never change yourselves at all at the expense of others.

Letting Go…

Recently, I mentioned to all of you I had some stuff personal-wise going on with college work, well these past few weeks haven’t been easy for me, as there has been so much stress and upset given something far more serious which I can’t discuss for certain reasons in mind, but the work has been stressful lately and with learning the news about something as horrible and grim, it just sent me over the edge.

How I have managed to handle it all surprises me as I somehow have managed to cope well with some horrid news and I still got through it without my work suffering.

Obviously, the horrid news I received resulted in me breaking down in tears as a result, to which I feel okay now that I’ve been through the worst of things and come out stronger on the other side.

Sometimes I have worried these past few weeks that I wouldn’t be able to sleep properly but I have managed to pull myself through the pain of some serious news and just get on with life after this.

I can only apologise if I have not been as productive recently, I’ve had a lot of stuff going on away from writing articles altogether and it has affected me from publishing articles so I sincerely apologise if you haven’t seen much from me recently.

All is not lost though because I have some good news to tell you, although I didn’t get a merit this time around, I managed to pass the first year of the two-year film and photography course with a Pass grade, which is good as I can straightaway progress onto the last year of the film and photography course in September.

I was taken aback by the surprise result as I didn’t get the merit or distinction result that I wanted but I’m pleased to have got a Pass grade on the first year of this two-year film and photography course, as it’s better than nothing.

Still, I’ve successfully finished my second year at college and my first year of this two-year film and photography course and I cannot wait to continue onto the last year of this course.

I really want to make sure that I can absolutely nail the last year of the two-year film and photography course as I am seriously keen on wanting to finish my education with the best results possible.

Again, I am seriously ever so sorry for not being as productive recently. Now that I have the whole holiday to relax, I will be making sure to get out more and to be as productive as possible, and I will also be making sure to publish frequently over the whole of July and August.

Next year will be about letting go of everything in life that isn’t important anymore and will just be about focusing on what really matters and what is also the most important and the most crucial key factor of life. The future.

With full respect and love,

A Note of Sincere Apology.

Dear all,

I am ever so sorry I haven’t been as productive this month, I’ve had a lot of personal things going on lately and haven’t had the energy to publish as many articles as I hoped. The past few weeks haven’t been easy for me and I haven’t been able to be as productive as much as I thought.

If I have not published as many articles this month, then this is the reason why. I do sincerely apologise if you haven’t seen many articles from me, I’ve got so much going on personal-based, but also a lot going on with my Final Major Project, which I’m ready to start wrapping up and finalising before the public show goes on at Croydon College from the 13th – 17th June.

Also, another reason behind this is because I’m under a lot of pressure regarding revision which I’ve got to do for my GCSE English Paper exams, so please forgive me if I haven’t been productive as first thought.

Again, from the bottom of my heart, I am ever so sorry I haven’t been as productive as I usually have been, but I will try to publish some articles as best as I can as things get back to normal.
