The Photocopy Syndrome (2)

Photo Credit:
Great esteemed reader of worthymama blog,it is another great week with most of us heading to our offices,schools,Business offices etc Here is the second and concluding part of The Photocopy Syndrome (1) and we do hope you have been inspired to accept yourself the way your creator made you.
If I had written this piece in Nigerian Pidgin language,it would have been fun due to the serious but also hilarious content of such a topic.Maybe I will write a pidgin version of this piece to drive home my point.In order not to bore you anymore with definition of the photocopy syndrome,lets see the CONSEQUENCES of this mentality disease highlighted below:

  • Aiming to be another person crowns you with the title of "world's greatest WANNA BE!" What a title right? This means you "believe" you came to this world by chance!hehehehehe,how can you be alive on earth and reading this by chance?have you not read what God says in Psalms 139:16 "your eyes saw my unformed body;all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of then came to be"!You know God is the awesome manufacturer that has never had a factory mistake.He plans and formed you in his heart before you came to life so there was enough time to process your existence.Are you not just awesome?Man is just a frail clay that "talks too much",your fellow human being are the ones that define who/what is beautiful or ugly.The only one that his opinion counts is your maker,check this out Psalms 139:14"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful, I know that full well" whose opinion should you believe then?The report of man or of God?
  • You are gullible and is deeply infected with the total lack of self esteem!Whatever your idol says and does,you agree even if it is to your detriment.Forgive me my fellow women but we like  to define ourselves and identify with what a popular person says and does.When your idol says if your body weight is above 70kg,your husband will think you are ugly and MAY cheat on you!Ha,such lies are usually coated with "a man's greatest weakness is his eyes" so prepare for the worst or "kill yourself" to weigh less than 60kg!Gullibility is the cause of mental and psychological death of most relationships.What others "think"is one of the symptoms of The Photocopy Syndrome.
  • You are consumed with idolizing someone else that you end up not realising certain talents or potentials you have,except the potential of being a "copy copy"This is committing suicide and at the same being alive physically. Trying to be like someone else is wasting the precious time allotted to you on earth and by the time you realize your FOLLY, it May be time to vacate this temporal home. So how do you get qualified to be given your original home on the other side?
  • Striving to be like someone else can affect your health and the best name to attach to such a situation is that you are a SHADOW!It is darkness that brings about shadow and no one remembers how his shadow looks like after light takes over it.
  • Your idol may keep fanning your folly, that they appreciate you copying their lifestyle, then after a while they humiliate and call you a pest!Do not wait to be humiliated,that feeling could cost you your life!
So,what is it going to be?will you keep being a photocopy of someone?Do keep your comment coming,lets start your week with these thoughts for life.Have a splendid week ahead.
