It is easy to get caught up in being somebody else. Seeing how people react to different personalities and wanting to change yours or to see someone’s style and change your own to match. More often than not, we have all tried to be someone who we were not called to be. We have tried to change our image whether internal or external in order to be perceived differently; cooler, smarter, happier, nicer, etc. However, it is easier to be exactly who you are than to try to be someone else. Often times, we try to change ourselves to be who people expect us to be, leaving more insecurities to be unattended. The hardest part, is learning to accept yourself, your flaws, and knowing your strengths. Accepting all that you are regardless of how others are going to perceive you is the key. It takes time, but it is possible.
- Nobody does you better than you!-It is easy to want to put yourself down and not acknowledge what makes you you! Especially, if you have not spent enough time with yourself to know. Finding your strengths and embracing them will help you to be the best you you can be!
- Accept your flaws-Being who you are isn’t just about knowing your strengths. It is about knowing your flaws too! Your flaws and your strengths are 50/50. It is easy to point out your flaws but it is harder to accept and embrace them. Accepting your flaws make it easy for you to not be afraid if anyone else points it out!
- Don’t overthink it!-Easier said than done. But, just saying/doing what you feel allows you to be more free and be yourself rather than overthinking the situation and holding back.
