“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” – Charles Caleb Colton
“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” –Herman Melville.
It’s always flattering if someone is trying to imitate you. Maybe they think you’re looking so good and they try to look the same way you are? Maybe they think you’re doing a good job and so successful so they will try to do the same? For whatever reason they may have, it gives a feeling of achievement for the person being imitated. You feel proud of yourself, because maybe they find you interesting and admirable. They admire you so much that they would like to be you. Be in your place, experience what you are experiencing. But imitation or copying is not always good 😦
I feel pity for the person who is trying to imitate someone. For she will never be happy of what she has and on whatever she will accomplish. Because in her, an envious heart lies. She will never be able to use her creativity. For she always copy whatever she finds amusing and would make her feel popular. She will never make use the talents she was given in the good of herself and of others.
Be your own self. Do what you are destined to do. Your life is yours and my life is mine. We can never have the same life. We can only undergo the same experiences but it is up to our own choices to make our mark in this world. Travel your own path and don’t ride on others’ journey. Remember, no one is alike. Though sometimes we may look the same, but we are created differently. Use your distinctness to shine. Make your own moment and seize your magic.
Just sayin’ 🙂
