I Am Not Better Than Anyone, And Nobody Is Better Than Me

Some people have a hard time associating with others who aren't similar to them.

I Am Not Better Than Anyone, And Nobody Is Better Than Me

Networking. This term is one that I honestly had no real idea what it meant. I finally learned the true definition my last few months of high school. To me, networking is making personal connections and relationships with people all around the world.

Social networking is one of the greatest things that actually came out of social media. You can meet people all over just by one click. Some people have a hard time associating with others who aren't similar to them. This is breaking the #1 rule of networking — always communicate with people who are different than you.

Talk to your neighbor, smile at the person you walk by in the grocery store, say thank you to the person who holds the door open. Do not be afraid to communicate with other human beings on this planet. We are all different, yet we are all the same. We are all human, so stop acting like you are some sort of special or different person.

No one is better than anyone. Yea, I said it. No one is better than anyone.

While I go off on this tangent about communication, you might be wondering why this connects to networking. Well, your individual social skills are key to your networking skills. These characteristics can be strengthened by talking to strangers in public or going out of your comfort zone.

Being a good networker is (almost) always how you receive the things you are dreaming of. It can be hard to reach every goal by ourselves, and we need to communicate and ask others for information or help.

Be kind to everyone, because you will never know when that same person could be your neighbor or your boss. The people you bump into every day, or once a month, have a purpose.

While networking sounds too professional to you, and you might think networking is only for the big CEO of that companies... It is more than just that. Network your way through life. The more people you get to interact with the better. Learning from people is the greatest gift to be given.

Remember, you are no better than me and I am no better than you.

My dad always says, "You are not better than anyone. Nobody is better than you."

Let that sink in.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
