The world doesn’t owe you anything

Along side studying for a degree, I’ve had a part time job in customer service. If I were to call in sick I would be replaced in an instant with no hesitation, this is when I learned your job doesn’t care about you and I am truly okay with that because I know the world doesn’t owe me anything.

I use social media alot, everyone wants to ”cancel” anything and everyone and sometimes I just look at the tweets and just think ”How dumb can you be, after a few days or so everyone will forget about this person. No cares” heartbreaks, low funds, death happens and will happen to us at someone point in our familes and lives but does your work care about it? You are still expected to turn up.

When I was upset or sad I would still go to work because I had to turn up. When I was feeling low and didn’t feel like doing anything I would still go to work because I had to turn up. The world doesn’t stop for anyone .

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.” 

-Rocky Balboa

Am I being too harsh?

How many times have you said ”I am just doing me from now on” ”I am just focusing on myself right now” did you mean that or were you just being edgy? Did you mean that or did you say it because you were really alone and had no choice?

Relationships end, friendships die, people leave and you can give a big 🤬 to the world but what will that change? the clock will keep ticking, your world might feel like it’s stopped for a minute but in the real world, the globe continues to revolve.

Are you listening?

Time stops for nobody! Sometimes I would wish it would, sometimes I wish could be in those happy moments a little longer and appreciate the people I care about just a little longer and show my love for them even more, other times in my low moments I wish it would go by faster. Time waits for no one.

So…your life currently sucks…oh! Was that supposed to be a secret?

When I fell into depression I would always ask why me? I didn’t do anything. Why me? I just later learned to accept it. The sooner your accept your situation the faster it is to move forward. Understand certain situations are really hard to move on from, you need to allow yourself to grieve, allow yourself to feel what you need to feel but as you grieve you have to keep going. You can’t let them see you weak. I am all for allowing yourself to feel what you need to feel but you still have to remember people are cruel and once they see you weak they may use it against you.

Some people are born into rich families others aren’t and that’s life but what will you do about it? What will you do with what you have? Will be invest or keep screaming about how unfair life is. Life is unfair and has always been unfair, I always say life to me is like a game of chess. Chess is strategic game and requires brain power, you always have to think about your next move.

To win you have to make a move.
Knowing which move to make comes with IN-SIGHT
and knowledge, and by learning the lessons that are
acculated along the way.

 Allan Rufus, The Master’s Sacred Knowledge

The world owes you nothing but that doesn’t mean you should let it get you down. No matter how much we would love the world to be this beautiful and happy place, we have to create our own happiness in the world. When you are happy in and out nothing can bring you down, going to your job becomes much easier, your relationships with other people are much better. Remember, communication is key.

You will be okay

What have I learned that’s contributed to my happiness? Love and Friendship. The love you receive from your parents, partner and even friend’s is all you need to keep going. The love you have for yourself is worth more than anything in the world. You can’t let the world defeat you because I garantee there’s at least one person that cares about you, all you need is one person to make the world less daunting and that person could also be you.

In the end, if we don’t fail, we cannot succeed; yet if we do not try, we can never fail (and always succeed at not doing what we crave to do in a strange, circular, self-defeating way).

Start by doing one thing you love, I love going to the movies by myself so I try take to take the opportunity to do so whenever I can. What do you love to do? Perhaps listen to music? with 7 Billion in the world you are guaranteed to find someone or a group of people you can relate to. Change always starts from you. ”You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” So what will it be? Are you going to do something about what’s going on in your life or will you stay mad at how unfair the world is?


  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the
    hang of it!
