Original is worth more than a copy
By Josefina Gabriel|
With a different time, different place or different situation life can easily be handled in a different way too.
But being you in any time, any place or any situation is sweeter and worthier living ever as you’re living as you are without faking yourself in any way.
That’s to say, being you is nice and more nice than being someone else. Whether you’re rich or poor, educated or not, when you are yourself you will be considered worth and honest than faking yourself and considered as a copy.
We all want to be like other people who are successful. We want to be like those people who speak nice English. We want to be like those other people who have all the good things.
Therefore we’re tempted to copy other people’s lifestyles, to copy their behavior, and even copy their habits and living conditions.
In the end we might come across as the best copies instead of being the worst originals. But a poor original is better than a rich copy. Being true to yourself and to others is better than pretending to be what you’re not.
Even if an original is old, it’s still worth more than a new copy.
Therefore in poor conditions or in rich conditions it’s always better to be the original version of yourself because an original is always worth more than a copy.
