As much as we may look alike, grown up in the same environment and share some DNA, we are totally different human beings. For example, you have your own signature that no one else can acquire. For this reason, you have no need to try and look like another person.
Do not close yourself in the world of jealousy and unhealthy competition. The only person who you should compete with is the girl in the mirror. Do not be in a rush to live a life that your friend has set out for herself.
You have to understand that you do not live in the same circumstances as someone else, and anytime you rush to keep up with someone, you are setting yourself aside and trying to make another copy of another person, a photocopy. Being clueless on the number of days assigned to you on this earth, imagine then breathing in on another person’s life, having no clue of your own capability.
Take your time to discover your own self, understand what you love and what you loath, and discover your own purpose in life. Make your own lifetime plans, that way there will be no place for you to be involved in someone else’s plans.
If you consciously choose to be a copy of another, please also understand that you do not have the full picture of what the original person looks like.
Little sister, do not underestimate your own ability, do not allow the pressure of the world turn you away from becoming whatever you were intended to be. With wisdom, learn to even let your own parents understand that you are your own person, and that in no day will you become like me or anyone else.
What I have come to understand in life is that whatever you put your mind to, you can actually achieve, so if you have your own ambitions, moving in your own pace and time, being persistent and consistent, you are likely to achieve your own dreams. You do not want to leave this world unable to figure out exactly what you have been doing in your whole lifetime. I of course would not want that either.
When I was young, I dreamt of becoming a princess, and so did many other girls of my age. Each one of us had a unique desire to have our own unique castles and kingdoms. Somehow, we thought that the world was big enough for all of us to be future queens. As we grew older, we started competing for attention and for different resources; this diverted us from our direction in life.
Jealousy and unhealthy competition became the order of the day and for some the realization of having lost track of their destiny came too late. Do not let this be your destiny, let each princess rule her kingdom while you rule your own kingdom.
In love aspire to advice friends when they go wrong, be happy when they succeed and learn from them on making your life better. This way you help each other move towards your destiny.
With the blessings of God, you will get to whatever destination God has ordained and in the process; you will always remember you are a unique human being.
