You know the feeling when you don’t feel good enough or like you don’t belong? Yeah, don’t listen to that. I’m telling you, and I promise you this; You do belong, you are good enough, you are loved and were put onto this earth for a reason. Everyone is so caught up on being accepted, but really, why should they if we don’t accept ourselves for being who we really are? Why waste time on trying to be like someone else? Why is it so bad to be different? Why is it so bad to be unique? We all have a unique and different fingerprint that defines us. You were made and born different and unique in your own way for a reason, you were born to stand out. You were born to be you, not everyone else. Each and every one of us have our own minds filled with unique thoughts. No one can take away our individuality no matter how hard they try.
About a year ago this quote really hit me. I finally put my foot down and started blocking out and ignoring all of the negativity around me. I know that it’s still around in the world, but it’s something that you have to overlook and start ignoring. I took on a more positive attitude toward myself and the people and things around me. I started accepting things, but most importantly, I started accepting myself for who I really am. I feel like this really helped me out a great deal. I realized that what other people think of you doesn’t matter. It honestly doesn’t! People will judge you regardless of whatever you do so just continue living your life, be who you are and learn not to dive a damn about their criticism. Not everyone knows your story, so if they judge you in a snap of a finger without taking the time to get to know you, then why should you care about what they think of you? There are people that already accept and appreciate you for who you really are. Such as your family and friends. They are the ones that honestly mean the world to me. I can be and express myself around them and I know that they will always be there for me no matter what. There will be people out there that will start accepting and appreciating you when they see that you aren’t afraid of being yourself. People like that about you. I live this life to me, I make my own decisions, because I know what I need to do to make myself happy. I accepted myself and I feel like I’ve gained so much confidence. I know I’m not like you, and No, it’ doesn’t bother me, nor am I sorry. Why? Because I am different, God made me unique, he made me special in my own way. There is no one else out there in the world like me. I have just as much importance on this world as anyone else does. Always think of the best, think positive, it will really change your life… it did for me!
At the end of the day you have to do what you want and makes you happy! Act yourself, dress the way you want, think what you want, believe what you want, say what you feel, express yourself, but most importantly, don’t be ashamed to be yourself, you were born to stand out!
