I thought I would post this as it has something that happened to me recently, but also is something I have noticed in the past throughout the years.
I want you to consider something. You own a yoyo, you bought it, got it, somehow, but the fact is, that the yoyo you hold in your hands, is yours.
Now, with that in mind, I want to bring up this issue that I have seen.
I notice some individuals getting very sore about people selling off a yoyo that the particular individual received when it is gifted or won.
They try to say that its “immoral” or “wrong” or “just not right”. I have even gotten responses of “I expected greater of you.”
This is absolute horse apples.
Something that people need to understand, is that once something is yours, its yours to decided what to do with it. You want to ding it? Go ahead. Sell it? Sure!, eat it? That might hurt but its your choice.
Is it morally wrong to sell something gifted to you? No, think of it like this, if you are selling it, it must mean that either A: you appreciate the thought but maybe didn’t like it so much so you decide to sell to get something you can enjoy. That money is still the gift, and what you buy with it will ultimately be the gift as well! Why else do you think large brand name stores have gift receipts?
or B: You need the money for some reason, thus, its still a gift, the person although indirectly, they are helping you out.
People need to stop this “wow thats wrong” stuff. The fact is, what you have is yours, what I have is mine, do what we want.
So for those of you who ever find yourselves in this type of situation, either you feel it might be wrong to sell off or trade something gifted or won, or you already are and some people are talking trash about you. Forget it, do whatever the hay you want, and don’t give a apple buck about what anyone will try to tell you.
Listen to what I just said (or wrote) and block out anything else.
Go have some fun and yoyo.
Thanks or the read my enthusiastic little admirers.
