We are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Why then, is it so difficult for us to love ourselves just as we are? Why do we so often become burdened with feelings that we are not beautiful enough, not tall enough, not thin enough, not good enough? And then, we become vulnerable, when we base how we feel about ourselves on other’s people opinions or compare ourselves with others. When u’re unwilling to accept yourself, you are less willing to accept others, and that can lead to loneliness and isolation. When you judge yourself harshly or put intense pressure on yourself, you become judgemental of others. Loving and accepting yourself as god made you opens the door to a much greater sense of peace and fulfillment.

Loving yourself is not about being selfish, self-centered or self-satisfied; it’s about accepting your life as gift given by god which is to be nurtured and shared as blessings to others. Instead of dwelling on your imperfections, your failings or your mistakes, just focus on your blessings and the contribution you can make, whether it is about talent, knowledge, creativity, hard work or about nurturing soul. You don’t have to live up to anyone else’s expectations. You can define your own version of perfection. By accepting who you really are, knowing your own imperfections will make you more powerful and strong enough to stand alone in the crowd of unreliable. No one achieve great things by following the crowd. Find the true purpose, because it is the important step to living a life without limits; maintaining hope for better future and having faith in the possibilities even in difficult times will keep you moving towards that goal. You must know that you are worthy of success and happiness. You must love yourself; radiate good feeling around. In a condition when you don’t accept yourself leads to self-destruction, as i said it leads you to isolation and separated. Know your shine within and Don’t rely on others to validate you, to give you confidence and to make you feel appreciated. The only important measure of your beauty and value as a person should be the one that comes from within. I know easy to say, tough to do! But it’s not impossible, life can be cruel, people can be thoughtless, but look inside and search for strength within you and if you fails, then you can look above, close your eyes and then you can feel the ultimate source of strength and love.

Think in this way: what’s the point of having someone love you of you don’t love yourself? Try to learn to stand up for yourself, love yourself who you are and just live the life in the way you want to live. Conditions when you feel hurted or bullied, look to the mirror and find one feature you love about yourself. It doesn’t have to be a physical characteristic, it can be your talent or trait or something else; that makes you feel good about yourself. Dwell on that something for a while, Be grateful for that and make yourself understand that your beauty and value comes from the unique person you were made to be. (This looking to the mirror idea really works, try it,). If you can’t resolve your issues then be the solution to someone else. After all it is better to give than receive. The best advice for finding inner happiness is to reach outside yourself, use your talents and brains, to make life better for someone else. I don’t have story to tell , but I would like to say that
We humans are a silly bunch. We spend half of our time trying to fit in the crowd and the other half trying to stand out from it. We want to hangout with different but we usually hangout with those who think and talk like us.Adopt an attitude that may work for you, decide that your beauty lies in your difference, in the fact that you are not like everybody else. I’m uniquely me! ! !
You are not what you think you are. But what you think – you are!
You can do better.. for better tomorrow! Let me know in the comment section below what is your story, and is it relatable to you or not?
