Dear whoever is reading this, I understand how rough things are right now. I just want to let you know that things will get better, I promise. Keep holding on just a little bit longer. I know you feel like nobody really cares. You’re wrong, stop denying it. I care, otherwise I wouldn’t be saying this. You’re not alone, we may be miles away but we’re all going through the same things. Please keep holding on. Please.

Rant with a lesson

I love people with everything inside of me, but sometimes they get on my nerves.

A few days ago I lost my job. Normally people would be upset, but I’m not. I live in the best city in the world, I have amazing roommates who keep encouraging me, and I still consider my life blessed. Therefore my optimism is relatively high. Yes, I’m concerned about what to do now and where to go, but I know that it will eventually get better.

So what is my rant about? A few minutes ago, a person from my job just texted me with pseudo-concern while trying to figure out what I did. This guy had never texted until now and had never promoted any sort of relationship.

It’s definitely normal for this to happen, especially in an industry where people thrive on rumors. However I detest gossip. It is one of the human actions I wish would be eradicated, and I refuse to associate myself with it.

I’m done ranting, but I look for a lesson in everything and learned something about myself. I so desperately want to make it in the entertainment industry and I’ve been trying to get a job with a company solely so I can learn something from them. In other words: I’m using them so I can get something instead of trying to develop a relationship where both of us gets something, which is what that guy was doing to me. Stephen Covey describes the latter action as thinking “win-win” which is one of habits for becoming a highly effective person.
