  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    It is normal to look up to someone right here or out there i.e. you are expected to admire and respect anyone who is worthy of admiration and respect. But, you shouldn't wish to be like anybody, no matter his or her socioeconomic status. Now listen up, nobody is better off than you. Yes! and in case you don't know, you are God's masterpiece and one of a kind as well Scripture reference (Ephesians 2:10). So, you've got to stop wishing to be like anybody right here or out there. Take Note: if every human is the same, this world would be so boring and uninteresting to live in. Lest you forget, monotony kills interest and much more than that, but variety is the spice of life. In other words, our uniqueness is what actually makes the world vivacious and interesting to live in, (IMHO) in my humble (honest) opinion. ~Emeasoba George
