Love Yourself Naman

Pin It

I met this “journo" for the first time in one event. He approached me because apparently ‘he has heard about me as a blogger'. After introducing his name and where he writes for, he asked right there if I could write a feature about him in boydubai.com. The kind request became a demand even before I could say a word. Wow! He needs the feature ASAP so he could qualify in a scholarship in another country. The demand quickly grew into an aggravated command, and I could only say “Uhhmmm...” I tried to explain what my blog is about and not about. I don’t even know why I had to do that.

I feel bad for him, and I felt insulted as a blogger. This journalist don’t understand how I write. The guy lacks respect.

He was pleading. He ended the annoying chat by saying, “...in return, I will feature you in my column."

No thanks.

What we can take from here is, if you're doing something worthwhile, you don’t have to foolishly beg for recognition. People who gets recognized are those who actually humbly discredit themselves from it - they who passionately do their jobs without looking at any material rewards (or feature) in return.

Sorry brother, you just lost my respect.

Next time, be careful what you wish for because ‪#‎NowYoureFeatured‬ just happened.
