Preaching

In response to the post on ....

I said everything was pointless because success in the coporate world, success in the possesion of material things, success in status etc all boils down to mainly one thing, that we seek to be liked better by others, to be respected, to be acknowleged so that our existence on this earth is worth living.

But the irony of it all is that in the end, what really matters is what we think of ourselves. After spending half or all our lives pursuing, we finally realised that what we are pursuing actually lies inside us all along. That what we are in fact seeking is to be liked better by ourselves.

Anyway, I believe to be respected by others, first of all, one has to respect oneself.

Also, the envy of others is only a short-term ectasy that will dissolve with time.

Sounds very preachy eh.. Age is catching up, if you don't like to be preached to, skip this post.
