I don't know who's going to read this, but I'm going to write it anyway...
I've noticed that there are a lot of questions pertaining to the subject of popularity, well-known users, and admiration on this club... Some people find it harmless. Others don't care. But a lot of people do and this article is for those who feel like they're not important. You know who you are.
All I have to say is... you are just as important as everyone else on this club. The person with 1 fan is just as important as the person with 1,789 fans. They're just numbers. A lot of you need to realize that Fanpop is just a website on the Internet. Popularlity on a social network should be beneath your notice.
The reason there seems to be "well-known" users on this club is because people have made it so.
By posting questions and forums and articles about "well-known users," you are making everyone believe that there is a popular group when there really isn't.
These people are just admired for the things they say and their courage to stand out and be themselves.
These questions about "popular" people only make others feel bad about themselves when they're not mentioned.
Thoughts like, "Wow, maybe I'm not good enough..." or "I wish I could be as popular as that person," rush through people's minds and that's when jealousy and subjective behavior takes place.
Subjective behavior harvests bad feelings toward other users, and then that grows into envy.
You should be happy with who you are. That's all you need. And don't say, "But there's nothing good about me," because there is. You're just being too stubborn to see it.
You need to understand that you're not here on Random to impress anyone. You are who you are. There is nobody on this earth like you. You are different. You are special.
You have just as much potential as the next person on this club. Don't argue otherwise.
Everyone here should be valued. Everyone here has their own story to tell. Be happy with who you are and you'll be content in all the things that you do. Don't do anything that you'd regret.
Treat others the way you'd want to be treated. Be kind to people on this club, and they'll be kind to you. If they're not kind, you can still be kind.
The truth of the matter is that if you be yourself, people will admire you for that. People like it when you be yourself.
Confidence is something that people value. Don't ask yourself, "Why am I not as cool as that person? Why am I so lame? Why won't anyone admire me?" Ask yourself, "What can I do to make myself a better person today? Whose day can I brighten? How can I show who I really am to everybody today?"
You should strain to make yourself better with every passing day. Be strong. Be happy with your strengths and your weaknesses. Sometimes you're wrong and sometimes you're right about certain things. Accept your weaknesses and grow from that. You'll see the difference.
If you have the courage to make a difference and be yourself then it doesn't MATTER if people admire you or not. All that matters is what you think of yourself. You are more important than you deem yourself to be. Stop trying to compare yourself to someone who is completely unlike you.
Everyone makes mistakes. We are all human. Even the most perfect person with the most "perfect life" has felt the wrath of sadness and jealousy and imperfection. Let's build each other up instead of breaking each other down.
It's fine to admire people. But let's try not to bias anyone... It's impossible to compare two people because we are all so intricate in our own way.
Don't strive to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Strive to be better than yourself.
This is an opinion article. This is my opinion. I appreciate all of your opinions, too, but please respect mine in return. That's all I ask... And that's all I have to say. Thank you for reading.
