Love Yourself

Love Yourself

Waking up every day hoping this would be a better one. Maybe today I will do something productive, something people will appreciate me for and not look down on me. The day came when I was at the peak of my melt-down, I didn’t understand why people found an option to look down on me. Personally, l may feel like I am good at doing something, but when someone gives me a negative comment I let it affect me. 

I am tired of being glued to the same place substituting all my positives with negatives. One day, my friend texted me. We had a small chat and she tried her best to calm me down. When I told her how hurt I was about people looking down on me, she said a few words which hit me hard, ‘you don’t need people’s opinion or validation to know your worth’. That is the time I realized that you always don’t need a person to understand you. There is a much better alternative and it is to understand yourself. 

I don’t have to meet other’s expectations or be like someone else. I have my own strengths and weaknesses and that’s what makes me an amazing and unique person. I think your goal should be to be a better person today than you have been yesterday. Make your weakness your strengths and your strengths even better. Make yourself stronger so that people’s efforts to break you become futile. 

Don’t give up on self-love due to someone else’s words because you are a beautiful person in this beautiful world who deserves to be loved just like anybody else. If you make a mistake don’t be hard on yourself, stop reminiscing about your past, instead learn from your mistake and take it as an experience to deal with your future situations.

Follow the 1% rule, if you can improve yourself by a percent each day then you would have improved by 365% in a year. Stars are not formed in a day but with effort and time, they start to shine brighter and brighter even when they are far away. Just like that, you can’t be an expert in a day but will learn to be one when you put in your effort and give it some time. There is always room for improvement.

Try to love yourself and don’t let your self-satisfaction be ruined by your self-doubts.
