You've all heard the expression "don't hate the playa, hate the game" right? Right! So, why are their still so many hatas out there? For real, I wanna know. Why do we have to hate cause someone else has someone or something we want? We see people who have lavish homes, nice cars, and things of that nature and we immediately think "must be nice" of "how can I be down?" while we never think about how hard those people may have worked to get what they have. Granted there are those who have rob, cheated, and stolen to get their possessions, but there are also many who have worked their asses off for everything. I'll admit that I've made the comment a time or two, but honestly and truly, I really don't covet what others have. I've worked hard for what I have and i credit those who have helped me along the way. I'm thankful for everything I have because I know I've earned it and deserve it. I don't want others to think I've got it so good and life is easy. Nothing in my life has ever been a handout. So, please don't hate; appreciate.
So, why are there still so many hatas? Why can't we be happy for folk? Why can't we consider they might be struggling to maintain what they have. Look at how many millionaires have lost everything because they thought they had it all or because they wanted more than they already have. Greed and covetedness are some powerful things and all too often used frequently.
We look at movie stars, singers, and other people of influence and think of how nice their lives must be, but think about it; would you want cameras in your face every move you make? Would you want someone commenting on your weight; who your dating; what your social life is like? Come on, it's stressfull and for the most part unnecessary. With Britney alone and unhappy, who'd want that life? With Lindsay Lohan in rehab at such a young age, who'd want that? Personally, when I make my loot, I just wanna still be me. Yeah, I'll have some extra change in the bank, but I'll need to use it wisely just in case my popularity runs out. You won't find me with a mini skirt on and no panties hopping out of a car cause I think I'm cute that night or starved for attention. This playa will still be doing hers with the few ride or die's that I have in my life already. I'll hate the game cause I don't do drama and bullshit; it's that simple.
I'm not sure exactly where I'm going with this, but I think you get the point. Basically, I'm just tired of the self-deprecation people have because they don't have something they feel entitled to. I'm tired of the hate cause someone has a nicer car, home, bike, boat, job etc. Just do you folk; just do you!
