Instead of spending your time trying to impress the people around you and the world we live in… the only person you should be trying to impress is yourself. Work on loving yourself first, understanding what makes you tick, what makes you happy and what you are good at. You will be the only person you will always be spending your time with – so it is better to learn to love yourself sooner than later.
The right people, the ones who belong in your life will soon enough come along for the right reasons, not because you were trying to be like someone else. Being yourself or not people will follow you, but being yourself is true to not only the people around you but firstly yourself. Be proud of who you are and what you have or can do.
You and only you are responsible for your fate. Life is no fun if you spend it hating yourself; this will limit any progress you hope to make. Always look on the bright-side of life.
Once your confidence is up, you will stop making the terrible mistake of comparing yourself to others. You will already be comfortable and happy with who you are.
The most important lesson you can teach yourself is how to accept and love yourself for you who you are, no matter what you’ve been through and what you’ve learned. Acceptance makes all the difference in your confidence and self-esteem.
Loving yourself in this world, will create an infectious aurora around you, so much that others will follow, but no matter who comes along, just know that no one will love you like you love yourself. Just don’t love yourself so much that you diminish the people around you.
Own yourself, your thoughts and your mind, and there’s nothing anyone can do or say that can take you away from you – Isamar Avery
