Hello readers, I hope you are doing well.
I have a question for you, on days you feel demotivated, and have low self-esteem, while overthinking about everything that is going wrong, do you consider things that are going right? Do you look back and think to yourself how much you have grown as a person? If not, then why not? Do you know a simple thought like this can help you so much in overcoming days like these?
We face good days as well as bad days. It is all the way we choose how we walk through our days, whether we'll lose ourselves or take on the challenges and move forward. I get it, there are days when you are at your lowest and even the people who care about you the most, don’t seem to understand you, and it’s okay because everybody around is growing at the same pace, and you can’t expect anybody to act God and also, the truth is nobody needs to understand you, but you. I used to believe I should change if people whom I love have a problem with the way I do a certain thing until recently I realized how much it can hamper one’s self-confidence/ self-esteem. If you do a thing a particular way, you do a thing a particular way and nothing is wrong with that, you should change things about yourself that you think needs to be changed without changing the core of you. Because the people who genuinely love you, will understand and respect you no matter what and the ones who don’t anyway need a reason. You can do things a certain way and your friend might do them a certain way and nobody is right or wrong here, just because you think and look at things differently doesn’t mean you are wrong. You don’t have to feel guilty for being who you are EVER! Grow daily but do not forget to shine as you grow during the process, believe in yourself before believing in anyone else because nobody knows you better, but you. Only you can understand why you do what you do and that is how it should be. Do not let the world dictate your life, because it will try to and when it does, shut it up. It is your life to be dealt with, deal it your way.

You cannot control how others receive your energy. Anything you do or say gets filtered through the lens of whatever personal shit they are going through at the moment, which is not about you. Just keep doing your thing with as much love and integrity as possible. People come and tell you, that you are not giving your best, but who is the person giving his/her best? You right? Then who gets to decide what is your level of best? YOU! As simple as that! You can for sure consider their opinion, and introspect whether they are right or not, but you don’t need to take it as truth and destroy yourself in the process. We often forget to love and take care of ourselves while taking care of everyone’s feelings and opinions, but don’t you worry I am here to remind you to grow and glow as well through the journey called life while being good to yourself.
If you are the kind of person who tries to understand why people behave the way they do, here is some free advice for your mental peace: “Don’t!” Do not try to understand everyone, because you can’t and because you don’t need to. Be kind, mind your own business, keep growing and let your spark burn the eyes of those who don’t want to see you reach heights. Let your soul glow and remember true beauty is when someone radiates that they like themselves. Nothing is as impressive as that, I swear.

One more thing, as I move towards the end of this blog, attach yourself to people to an extent you don’t get lost in them. Their actions, words, or anything should affect you to an extent. Being a person who believes in detachment and being emotionally independent, the best way is to do your own thing and be your support. If you ever feel like you can’t live without somebody, Oh! But you are mistaken, you were born without them, even God said you don’t need anybody to survive.
I hope I was able to hype you up a bit. Grow through what you go through, handle shit, come back stronger and be grateful for everything you have while achieving everything you want and get yourself a life you have always wanted to live and and the most important thing, do not ever in your life let the child inside you become an adult. Be your goofy self, be happy, do not mature to an extent that you bore your own self as well as the people around you, that is not cool.
Sending good vibes your way :)
Who says you're not perfect?
Who says you're not worth it?
Who says you're the only one that's hurting?
That's the price of beauty
Who says you're not pretty?
