We live in a society where there is constantly pressure to try and look and live ‘perfectly’. Realistically, most of the things that we see (whether it be on the internet, in magazines or on the television) is set up to make us strive to be this false perception of ‘perfect’. Take the time to remember your worth and to start loving yourself for who you are rather than what you think you should be.
LOVE YOUR IMPERFECTIONS- THEY MAKE YOU WHO YOU ARE
You aren’t too fat or too skinny. You’re not ugly or weird. Your little quirks that you wish weren’t there are the admirable things about you. Never allow your insecurities to make you feel like you aren’t beautiful. Embrace the things that you don’t like because there is only one of you, you are special. You were made to be exactly how you are, so don’t go obsessing over trying to change yourself- it will destroy you. Everything about you is one in a million, don’t forget that.
LOVE YOUR STYLE
Wear what you want to wear. Don’t worry about what everybody else looks like. Don’t get wrapped up in trying to fit in with the latest trends if that’s not what you like. You aren’t a sheep. Be yourself and forget about what other people think of you. Express yourself and enjoy every second of it. It’s boring being like everybody else!
LOVE YOUR PERSONALITY
You aren’t too much or too boring. You aren’t too quiet or too loud. Don’t be afraid to be who you are. There is nothing wrong with being and acting however you want to. Be proud of the person that you are and never try to change yourself for anybody. There is no such thing as being ‘weird’ or ‘normal’.
LOVE WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
Love what you want to love. Fall in love with whoever makes you feel special. Go to places that you enjoy going to. Do what you enjoy. It doesn’t matter what it is, if you enjoy doing something then make sure that you do it. Don’t let anybody question your actions. You are number one and you deserve to do what you love. It doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks.
Being kind and sharing love is the key to loving yourself. Sharing the love that you give to yourself will make you and everybody around you feel better. Avoid conflict with others and block anybody out of your life who tries to interfere with that.
DON’T ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE’S OPINION TO AFFECT YOU
When you learn to ignore other people’s opinions and stop trying to fit in, you will feel on top of the world and be content with who you are.
You are so unique and beautiful in the best way possible. Always remember that.
