Why don't we tell each other we love one another more often? In fact, we wait til somebody dies before we express how we really feel about them. Lately i've been telling my friends and family that i love them and alot of em are taken aback by it. It's not something that we usually hear everyday. But why be ashamed? I think we don't give the proper praise to others because of our natural selfish tendencies. I mean, think about...if we DO give praise to somebody, we quickly stop ourselves and say something like 'Lemme stop cuz i don't wanna blow your head up..'. But it's not blowing somebody's head up. It's recognizing and appreciating. For example, people often say J.Dilla is the best producer of ALL TIME. But nobody said that while he was alive...they waited until he passed. Same with Tupac...same with Biggie. We fear giving confidence to a person because confidence is strength and we're so selfish that we don't wanna give an advantage to the person standing next to us. Because we'll 'blow they're head up'. AT THE SAME TOKEN, you'd want somebody to recognize YOU. Fuck that. I'm not ashamed to say that i have a 'big head' or that i'm 'cocky'. But it's not to the point where i think i'm above the next person. I want everybody to have a big head or be cocky, just as long as you pass on the love that's shown to you. Imagine if we lived in a world where we all recognized and respected our full potential as well as the potentials of others. What a world that would be to live in..
PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY COCKY AND BIG-HEADED STATEMENTS OUT OF CONTEXT. AS YOU SEE, I PUT QUOTATIONS AROUND THOSE TWO. I SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ADDING THIS, BUT SOME PEOPLE HAVE LOW COMPREHENSION SKILLS.
