There is no one person on the face of this planet that is the exact same as another human being. You are not the same as any other person, nobody is the same as you, and nobody is the same as anyone else.
“No one is you, and that is your power.” – Dave Grohl
From different physical features, to our core beliefs, even to our biological structure, we are all different. Okay, well I don’t really like science, so I am going to stay away from that topic. But the point of the matter is, we truly are one of a kind. No matter how hard you try, you are never going to be someone else. So be proud of who you are, and live your life.
The world that we live in is always going to try and tell us who we should be. It seems like we can’t even turn on our phones or look on social media without immediately being swarmed by the beliefs of others telling us how to live our life. There are people who tell us that we should look a certain way, dress a certain style, or act with a certain way. But life is already hard enough without having to worry about the judgment of others, so why stress and carry the extra burden of trying to conform to the beliefs of others..
If we spend our time worrying about what others think about us, we will never be happy. I know this to be true because all of those things that I listed above, those are the thoughts that I used to prioritize my life around. I used to spend every bit of my time and energy trying to get the approval from others. It didn’t make me enjoy life anymore, nor did it make me love myself. The only thing that seeking approval from others did for me, was cause more pain and self-doubt. No matter how hard I tried, somebody always had a different opinion.
Let me give you a little insight. When you let go of the belief of others, and let go of the thought of perfection, you will be so much more happier in your life. A irrelevant number on the scale will never define your beauty as a person. The amount of likes that you get on instagram does not define how beautiful you are as a being. And the number of followers or facebook friends that you have will never define your value as a human being.
Instead, you should be proud of the person that you are already. You have accomplished so much in life, and you are going to accomplish many, many more amazing things. Be proud of the mistakes that you have made, and are going to make on a daily basis. Be proud of every single one of your imperfections. And be proud to just be you. Being a one of a kind human-being is what makes you beautiful and unique.
The most important step in being proud of who you are as a person, is by just loving yourself, and accepting your differences. Trust yourself with the decisions that you make in life, remove any negativity, focus on the positives, and just be the person that you want to be. No amount of approval from somebody else is worth dictating how you should live YOUR life.
Look, people are going to judge you no matter what. I hate to say it, but that is just how life is. So be judged for being the person that you want to be in life, not the person that others want you to be. You are strong, you are beautiful, and you are worthy of living the best possible life. So be proud of who you are, be brave, and just live your life. It is the only one that you will ever get.
