WE ARE SALT
What gives a salt value is its taste, once its looses it’s taste it becomes useless and needless...Imagine a salt that has lost it’s tastiness of what good will it be? except to be thrown and trampled on on by men, at least that was what I understood from the book of Matthew 5:13…
I would love to describe us as salt, So in the world and our relationship with people we are like a salt, the taste or value we add to their lives determine our durability in their lives, and the value we add to the world determine our relevance in it, the presence of a salt is being felt wherever it is, the spice and taste it has gives it that value, but what happens if the salt loose that tastiness or it’s value?Sometimes the only reason we are relevant or needed in a relationship is because we add value to that relationship be it friendship, romantic relationship, family, office or otherwise, so what happens if the reason people are attracted to us is not longer there? I will won’t be strict to literally say as the Bible that we will be trampled on but I will say you may simply become boring, unattractive and needless. Imagine having a cloth which is a trend and rated very expensive am sure the value you will attach to it will be so much but imagine what happens when it stops being a trend or becomes old fashion; you will notice an abrupt springing of uninterest in the cloth and sometimes you might even get rid of it in whatever way necessary, most times we even get very angry at its sight because it has lost it’s value, it’s saltiness, it’s sense of attraction and as a result it’s relevance.
Have you ever been friends with people or worked with people and all of a sudden you feel so left out or abandoned, or begin to have a feeling of rejection or simply feel invincible? Personally at some point in my life I have felt that way, sometimes we even suffer depression as a result of this and for me I learnt that we struggle, lament and worry too much to fit in forcefully or get peoples attention while we should simply be standing out and working on ourselves; the truth is people won’t value you until the need you or you posses something the need, simply put; your relevance is determine by your needfulness.
To remain relevant just like the salt we must add value, to remain needful in our circle of friends, work, clubs, and the world at large we must constantly maintain our value, our tastiness. sometimes to get that attention we desire, we must take deliberate actions and determine to be value adders wherever we find our selves, we must continue to work on ourselves, learn new things (might be a relevant skill: personal, soft or hard skill), learn new ways of doing even old things and make a commitment to be a solution not a mere burden.
