I know I should really be thinking twice about posting this here, but my chat with a friend a while ago made it seem imperative.
This industry has taught me a few things about life. For instance, it’s common for people to pull you down when they are threatened or jealous of you. A pathetic, petty misunderstanding sets the stage for a series of never ending gossip and backstabbing. We’ve all been there. People will jump at the opportunity to bring you down, either to get on top or to make themselves feel better about not reaching the same heights. It’s also common for successful people to forget their roots and the people who’ve helped them along the way. The success, however limited, blinds them from what’s truly important, and they emerge a totally different person. Most block you off when you don’t make the cut. You’re not talented enough, not interesting enough, not rich enough… and the cincher- no matter how good you are, you’re not popular enough.
The world is a big place. You may be on top one day, and at the bottom the next. You may even think that you’re on top, but on the larger scale of things, you are really no one. Who you are, or who society deems you to be SHOULD NOT really matter. Everyone deserves a chance to be heard. Everyone deserves a chance to make it happen.
No, I’m not bitter, nothing bad happened to me. I just realized a few things.
Whoever I become, whatever I end up doing, wherever I go, I will never EVER be any of those nasty people.
