Heyaa Uniquifiers and I’m back with another post! ♥

C6508BB3-D3F6-4A91-9259-5A92BBE22D90

How are y’all doing? Hope you’re all having a relaxed Sunday (;

Before I get into the post, I’ve noticed that I’ve gained a few new followers recently, so hey! A very warm welcome to the Uniquifier fam 😂 (ignore that, I wouldn’t blame you if you unfollowed me right now)! Anyways, a few months back we had to come up with a motivational speech for class, and I was looking through my files and thought, hey, why not share it with the blogosphere?

So, here goes! It’s a little long, so get comfortable andd enjoy!

Let's go!


Life. To live, survive and get through it, each human has many basic necessities that they require every single day. Food, clean water, clothes and a shelter. All of these things are examples of what you need physically in life to survive, but what about what you need mentally, emotionally and spiritually? This is what I will be discussing today – what I think you need in your life.

But before I begin, I just want to clarify what I mean by ‘need.’ No, it’s not the “Oh my God, you totally need to watch The Vampire Diaries like, right now!” type of need. Yes, despite what you think, shockingly, you can survive without watching a couple of vampires continuously getting themselves into trouble on the screen. Instead, it’s the “You actually need this in order to communicate with other human beings and get through your short lifespan so that you don’t hide yourself at home in eternal shame,” type of need. You need food. You need water. You like (or are obsessed with) Netflix. So, before you attack me for insulting your favourite show, I’m going to swiftly continue with my speech.

Respect. That’s the first thing I think you, as a person, need in your life. Why? Why respect? It’s not as if your life will be immediately threatened if you don’t have it – it’s not like food or water – so why respect?

Well, that’s easy. First, it starts with self-respect. If you can’t respect yourself, it’s impossible that you would be able to respect others around you. Self-respect means not putting yourself down if something goes wrong, and learning to accept yourself for who you are, instead of trying to be someone who you aren’t. We can’t all be Beyoncé or ‘perfect’ Barbie or even Justin Bieber (although truth be told, who would want to be like him anyways? 😂) For example, don’t dye your hair bright purple just because some random celebrity is. Be you, and be honest with yourself and others. If you receive a compliment, take it, instead of shrugging it off and saying, “That’s such a lie, I look SO ugly today.” Admit it, we’ve ALL done that before, whether it’s for attention or not. Learn to listen, not just to yourself, but to other people as well. Let me drill it into your head just in case you didn’t quite get that… YOU ARE UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU THINK YOU AREN’T. Be proud of yourself, and don’t ever, ever doubt that!

Once you master these points, you can easily respect others, and treat them how you would like to be treated. Imagine being terrified to walk to school or even step out of the house because people don’t respect you enough and treat you like an unknown species of insect that crawled into their lives. Imagine having to hide your face every single day because you’re dreading speaking to others, never knowing how they would take it. In a nutshell, you need respect to live among other people and to talk to them. You need to give respect in order to gain it. Even a simple compliment like “Hey, I like your hair today,” makes you feel great inside. Yes, it’s a compliment, but it’s also just a little display of the respect that the other person has for you.

And quite frankly, we’d all be lost without respect in our lives. If no one complimented us EVER, what would be the point of going to Mars and back if no one actually praised you for it? Of course there’s all that talk about being happy for yourself, etcetera etcetera, but as humans, we literally thrive on compliments. And as I said before, compliments = respect, therefore respect = something we ALL need in our lives.

The second thing that I think you need in your life is intelligence. To state the obvious, imagine not being able to learn anything at school because you are painstakingly dumb. If you can’t go to school and fail your GSCEs (if you live in the UK, that is), you won’t get a job, and will therefore not get money to provide for yourself, and will therefore live in your parent’s basement for the remainder of your life, mindlessly snacking on Doritos and popcorn that you did not buy whilst wasting your life away in front of the TV. Then, let’s be real here, you will die because you have no money and can’t buy yourself food… or IQ points. And no, none of you here are that dumb, even if you think you are.

So, those were the obvious reasons. But you need intelligence to get yourself through life, and again, communicate with people. For example, say you’re walking out of work or school one day and some random black-clad dude pulls up in a Lamborghini like, “Hey, I’m totally your long lost uncle from Outer Mongolia, wanna come for a ride in my totally not stolen Lambo?” Chances are you will definitely NOT get in the car with this guy (unless you’re impossibly dumb), because it’s just common sense.

If you’re the kind of person who is really gullible, then you will also repeatedly trust the wrong type of people, people who will then go and wreck your whole life by revealing secrets that you told them. You need intelligence to judge people correctly, to get a job, to tell the difference between right and wrong and basically, to live. This is why you also need intelligence in your life, as well as respect.

The last thing I think that you need in your life is peace. Peace of mind, as well as peace in your life and in the world around you. Just look at Israel and Palestine; they’ve been fighting since the mid-20th century and are still at it – every other day you hear news about it. The people living in Palestine and Israel this very moment need peace, out of all things, in their lives. A, because it’s making their lives a lot harder to cope with, and B, because if their conflict carries on and the war gets bigger, then they most likely won’t even have a life to cope with!

Another type of peace is peace in your life, so peace with your friends and family. Many couples often divorce shortly after having weeks or even months of shouting and screaming at each other in their houses. So, to achieve peace and stop arguing, married couples divorce. To get through life, you need people around you, and even more than that, you need peace with the people around you, whether it’s your family or your friends. My final example of a type of peace is a peace of mind. If you aren’t peaceful within your own mind and body, then you won’t be able to live with yourself and will probably feel VERY depressed – that’s not an idealistic, or even healthy, lifestyle. Before you want to do anything in your life, you have to be at peace with yourself. Marvin Gaye once said, “If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.” I don’t know about you, but I totally agree.

So, by now, you will probably all be wondering where I’m getting to with this, and where the ‘RIP’ from the title fits into all of this. Well, RIP stands for Rest in Peace, is commonly associated with death and is written on gravestones to commemorate the death of someone. So how does it tie in with everything I’ve just talked about? My point is, is that although we don’t know it, we use and need the phrase RIP not just in death, but in our day-to-day lives, too. RIP may stand for Rest in Peace for the rest of the world, but for me, it also stands for Respect, Intelligence and Peace, and this is why I think you need RIP in your life.

And that’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed today’s post, a Sunday thought for you all (: Make sure to comment down below if you have any thoughts or opinions! See you in the next post, which will hopefully be all about my recent trip to Istanbul, Turkey – photography included!

  1. Hey Uniquely Me! ❤
    PREACH.PREACH.PREACH. Oh, and if you didn’t get it the first time, PREACHHH! I literally totally agree with everything you had said, word-for-word. It is so important like all of this, we must have a state of mind that is peaceful and respectful before we have even look for respect and peace in other people. I mean, people in glass houses and all that right…?! ❤ And can I please say, your abbreviation for RIP s just amazing, and so important and inspiring, I feel like literally so in awe of this speech right now. And I lack a bit of common sense, but I still have the most of it. So seriously, keep on doing what your doing because I’m loving it and keep on publishing these lovely, awe-inspiring speeches ❤

      6. Awhhh no problemo!! Yesss same girlll! That’s exactly how I feel 😂 I feel like I should just leave the comment on Like but that’s just so unsatisfying and I feel like I’m being rude 😂 NOOOO I LOVE CADBURY 😂 Awhhh that’s adorableee you’d be the best assistant!
        And of course you’d get previews!! 😂😂😂 #AmberTheCoolSurferDude2k19 😂

        😂😂😂 Yesss! To be honest I’m also guilty – I post one liner comments on people’s blogs who I don’t necessarily read that much, so if I post long comments, you know that I like your posts (;

        Awh it’s good!! Thanks for asking, girl! Just feeling really lazy… and hungry (fasting) 😂 But only one more hour to go! I spend most of my day watching Buzzfeed Nifty room makeovers (don’t even ask me why I’m so random) 😂😂 And yeah, it’s 8:31 PM to be exact 😂

        What about you?? How’s your day (;

  2. It’s so inspirational and boosts my self esteem I read it every time I feel like I have low self esteem and you’re right we are human we aren’t Barbie or Beyoncé we aren’t perfect. People should stop caring about people’s looks they should care about what people’s hearts wish to do.
