What's up with the useless makeup!?

It really Grinds my gears that 'inspirational' quotes need to have some kind of pointless markup to make their point.

There's 5 lines here, each line with no more than 5 words, written in a large and legible font. By design standards it scores incredibly highly in accessibility.

It doesn't need any markup! Those red lines don't add anything, and just add more confusion to the sentence! The r/uselessredcircle doesn't add anything either.

It's less r/getmotivated and more r/mildlyinfuriating

Got it. Growth is blaming, impressing people, gaining validation and excuses.

i think because while we're growing up we choose peace over drama we choose our self over other people that don't even know what we faced or we battled in every single day

With ya, except there can be value in validation.

Also in putting the blame where it belongs, for that matter.

I feel itd be more accurate if they said, your focus shifts to addressing things yourself and getting on with it - and the rest is basically just there.

It does not disappear. Impressing ppl can be nice, as is receiving validation, and not assuming more blame than is yours, by knowing what exactly transpired is pretty useful as well. And excuses can be the explanation you need to see another person’s pov, and get why they did things the way they did em.

It’s just not the crux the way fixing things/focusing is.

With you here too — I think the message here is “own it.’ Not terribly original but I get it. :)

Do remember that a reason and an excuse after different.

I would like to add something to this. -Ownership. Own your mistakes and embrace the consequences.

I'm not sure on the first 3 of those things at all. All are perfectly reasonable and sometimes even necessary things to do


VexualThrall t1_jc0eg0c wrote

You'll understand eventually. None of those truly matter, and mental growth is realising that.


ValyrianJedi t1_jc0gnd8 wrote

I'm sorry, but pretending like it never matters whether you impress anyone is just silly


VexualThrall t1_jdw78v9 wrote

Who would you need to impress? Work? Not necessary whatsoever. Lover? Technically, it's not necessary. You can be loved without being impressive. I'm struggling to understand where at all impressing somebody would be important.

> Work? Not necessary whatsoever.

It is absolutely necessary


VexualThrall t1_jeawkdg wrote

How? Truly, I'd like to know why it's necessary. I've never been in a situation where it is, and I've still achieved promotions at past jobs.

Fuck, I still need to work on the last part.

I have the money I need to survive and I dont blame others for my problems. Nobody says Im successful though since Im not as well off personally or professionally as them. Success for me, and many others I suspect, is literally impressing people and getting their validation.
