I read something the other day, I forgot the exact wording for it but it went something like this…
If only we looked into each others souls..Our idea or definition of beauty will be so much different.
Try to remember this the next time you meet someone new. Don’t mind how they look, focus on the words they say, the way they think, instead of what they wear and what color is their hair….
We live in a world where beauty is defined in so many ways but mostly unrealistic
I am in the photography field, even though I don’t use photoshop but trust me when I say this software is magic. I mean even the girl doesn’t look like herself after the editing process.
Some girls get so addicted into wanting to look like this or that yet completely forget that they could simply be themselves.
(The trick is to take the time and get to know yourself, know what you want and work on it.)
- I might be a bit chubby; I work out and lose all that extra weight.
- I might have acne issues, I will go check it out fix my food and get rid of it.
- I might have hair loss, I’ll use better products and eat the right food.
But to forget all that and just go straight ahead asking to look exactly like a completely different person is a shame and a loss to who you are.. Your identity… Don’t lose your individuality in order to walk with everyone else.. or to feel that you are socially accepted.
After all those plastic surgeries( which I am not totally against) but a lot of girls starting to look alike.. Do you really want to be just another “Her”?
The moment you take the time to get to know yourself, love yourself… a lot of things will change around you.
Self-love is the strongest love. You might take the time to take care of others, love them, support them.. But don’t you ever forget about yourself. .You too need love, care and support.
Always remember that
10 Ways you could show yourself love:
- Start each day with a smile and gratitude.
- Indulge yourself with a good dessert
- Get Yourself some manicure
- Drink at least 2 ltrs of water(daily)
- Get a massage
- Buy yourself flowers
- Do something for the first time
- Do something you’ve been putting off for a while
- Get up early have breakfast and just enjoy having a day off
- Do something that you love
Never say >no one will love me because I’m ….. Or I have….. or I look like…….
Trust me when I say there is someone for everyone.. There is someone out there who will completely fall in love with your faults, flaws and those tiny things that you hate about yourself.
Yet you better believe if you don’t accept yourself, respect yourself, love yourself, take the time get to know what you truly want…. And most importantly, educate yourself. You will be fooled into thinking people will accept, love, respect… You.
I promise you, once you are aware of Who you truly are… Things will fall into line. You’ll lose some people but you’ll gain different ones. The right ones..
I am not the person I was last year.. And for sure I won’t be the same the next year.
I am always growing, learning, trying to figure myself out.
Last year I thought Sushi was just nasty raw seafood… I even didn’t take the time to find out that there are so many different types of sushi… COOKED sushi..
This year.. I think to myself ( I wasted 25 years not having to eat one of the best things I have ever eaten my whole life.))
You know what I mean?
It is going to be a battle to constantly remind yourself that you are worth it in a world where people around you keep telling you “Why don’t you be like this one or that one.”
But this battle is worth it because in the end
You will only win Yourself.
