Impressed, aren't you?

Too many people buy things they don't need,
with money they don't have,
trying to impress people they don't even like.

I am rather convinced that most of the things we do are to impress others, and these can be people we don't like at all. It can be your neighbours, classmates, siblings, ex, the guy running next to your threadmill.. and the list goes on. If the neighbour paint the house, we suddenly feel the urge to do the same. If the classmate gets a new pair of Nike, we feel wanna get a pair too. I guess it's worse with ex. Need I to say what will happen if the ex gets married to his/her soulmate?? *sigh!!

My point is, it is okay to be competitive. I mean, it's perfectly normal thing to happen. But we should know the limit. What is there to life when there is no room for you in your own life? There is certainly no need for you to do something that 1. you are unhappy about; 2. could land you in trouble and 3. divert you from your aim.

Having said that.. 

It's time for me to re-evaluate my own life!

Totally agree, but aren't we all attention seekers in our own way ? We gloat in the attention and sometimes people go to extremes to get noticed!
Then, things are out of control !

We can go with people, and there’s no mean to do whatever they do.
