Alexander the Greater once said: ''There is definitely something about your work that you have above 3000 followers. You deserve each one of them''. (I forgot the actual sentence. But this is what he said I mean-almost)
That was meant to curb my eternal self-loathing and provide me some confidence. I wrote stuff, I re-read it, I felt good. But then, the unimaginable happened.........
I thought Of something
I thought Of something NO ONE HAD EVER THOUGHT ABOUT
I thought Of something NO ONE HAD EVER THOUGHT ABOUT IN THE HISTORY OF BEING FLATTERED INTO THINKING THEY MIGHT ACTUALLY BE GOOD AND DESERVING.......
62,980,160 people chose to follow Trump too in the 2016 US presidential elections. Who am I kidding, right?!
Moral of the story: There are two ways to live. By the never-ending self-loathing and by being a douchy narcissist. Being a self-loather is better. Believe me. Because then you will at least try to do better and better.
I don't do that. But you totally should.
