Consistently, I like to root for the underdog. I’ve always been that way. I like to see someone who isn’t favored, succeed. It’s not that I don’t like the favored person because I do. But there’s something about the underdog that pulls at my heart.
What about you? Do you feel the same way?
To me, there’s a magic in the underdog succeeding and I feel the need to support them. I guess it’s how I like my people too. Those that come off as braggarts or too high and mighty turn me off. Those that quietly do well and succeed are the ones I like to stay in touch with and be around.
People who have overcome the odds are the most interesting to me. It’s not that I wish anyone ill will, but when you have experienced hardship and come through the life lessons that test even the strongest of individuals, to me, there’s something magical about you. I am inspired by those people. I admire them. I enjoy when they share their stories with me. For those that life comes easily to, I like them as well. It’s just that there’s a depth to those who have endured tough times. I guess I feel a kinship of sorts to them because I have endured hard times as well. Luckily, looking back in hindsight on my life, I realize that those life lessons made me the woman I am today so I don’t regret any of it, even though I wish much of it I hadn’t experienced. But that’s life, isn’t it?
