People have the perception that if something is beyond their capabilities, no one else can achieve it. God blessed everyone differently, so if by His Grace I’m favored with something that you haven’t, it doesn’t make me any better because you may as well have been blessed with something I or anyone else can’t have.
Being a writer, I can’t write about everything you want me to; instead I can write about stuffs I feel deeply where inspiration comes easily. Personally I’m bad at storytelling, so I can’t write fictional stories because I don’t read much books. However, on things I feel deeply like nature, animals, feelings, thoughts, spirituality, life, pain or sometimes Islamic thoughts, writing about these concepts becomes easy and peaceful for me. I don’t know on which basis other people choose who can be a writer, painter, or actor but not everyone owns an artist’s mind.
No matter what you do, good or bad, people will judge you. Many will think badly of you, where you may be tagged as “fake”, “liar”, or “dishonest”. However their perceptions reflect more about what they hide beneath rather than who you are. The nature of this filthy world is so, where people judge your abilities based on theirs, when in reality every single person is different, even fingerprints. Someone who has been successful by God’s grace, owning a beautiful house, car or a good job, people assume the results to their efforts, have been achieved through illegal acts. That is an absolute insult to the blood, sweats and tears they poured to reach at the end of the ladder. Girls, fond of makeup, are assumed to hide behind their “mask” to cover their blemishes and appear prettier. As the saying goes “beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder” but someone with makeup can still own a flawless skin and be as gorgeous without it.
God says assume the best in others but the world understands the opposite; assume the worst of others. Just because you can’t touch the moon, it doesn’t mean every single person in the world can’t either.
