Sometimes I just like to dwell on the topic of popularity and how much I’m influenced by it and how much everybody in society is influenced by it. Very recently, my friend accidentally left my name off of an invite list for homecoming, so I was very confused when people asked me if I was going to that person’s house. Instead, I spent needless amount of time worrying about if I had done something to offend her or if she purposely did not want me at her house, etc. etc.
Now flash forward to now, literally two days later, and she sent all the emails to me because she forgot to add my name. People started offering me rides. I got invited to a different person’s pre-homecoming event as well…
And I realize… how superficial I’ve become. I feel guilty because now I look back on this situation and I thank God for always providing for me and making everything work out in the end.
But I also realize that if you are a good person and you treat other people well, good things will happen to you. I should be happy with the people that I have in my life right now because they are everything to me and not worry about such things as popularity.
