How it all began...
1 year ago · · reflection,
I was taught to be nice so I developed a mission to help people, I guess.
I would talk about philosophy and share my thoughts with my best friend from highschool. We became close.
Looking back it feels like I did a lot of talking and not much of experiencing new things and meeting new people.
But i think that's because I was very much influenced by my parents and family. I felt that I had this obligation to be nice and it really held me back from expressing myself.
I was smoking weed a lot and I would always say "I gotta stop smoking weed, I gotta stop, its the weed that's holding me back"
But I really loved the creativity it gave me and couldn't resist.
I came up with a joke: 'Am I philosopher because I smoke weed or do I smoke weed because I'm a philosopher?"
I had a hard time standing up for myself and taking the name calling from the other friends I had. I was nice about it but to a detriment.
I realized those other friends weren't really my friends or good ones at least. I decided to focus on something creative on my own and get involved someway.
That's when I went to Facebook and started to promote my filming and editing business.
I created a business page for it and shared it to my feed.
I then had the idea to promote my page even better by promoting myself and by that sharing my deep philosophical thoughts and ideas. I would even comment on some of the girls posts about Trump and politics showing off my intellect.
I was really coming into myself and building passion for myself.
