When I first came into Steemit I was a 25 like everyone and I was happy, Of course I didn't had any Steem any followers or any of anything but I was happy because I knew my place, I knew things will only go up from here, and I wished to grow my numbers at least to 50.
Then something bad happened to me due to all the community building, smart and original content writing, helping Steemians, and other stupid things like that I turned 50, three days back.
So I guess I should be happy right? That after a month of hard work I finally achieved my aim to be a 50!, but guess What ? It Sucks! It sucks so hard that I cry myself to sleep sometimes.
it is just like getting older all you gain is experience, now there is no fun in gaining experience is there? Because if it was my grandpa would had been he most fun person ever (He is more on the grumpy side of fun).
Now no one treats me like a minnow now and my Steem power still suck at 60 so i am still a minnow, the best part of being a minnow was I used to get a lot of support from every one, but now nor a single shout out for any help, all the community meetings end up being segregated like minnow, me and whales, I am being thrown out from every giveaway because since I am a 50 I already had too many :P
Of course I have learned a lot in my journey towards being a 50 I have experienced a lot and I will continue to learn more, I think I feel it sucks a little because it my chance to give now, even If I don't have much I have more than many so It is my chance to help them now, giving sucks taking doesn't.
My current voting power is 0.02 not much but it is double of what I used to have, I promise to help everyone in need in any way I can, So that everyone can reach the reputation 50 soon and feel what I really mean. With all that being said, I would like to say it one more time.
Being at 50 reputation SUCKS!! :)
