Alright so lately, I've noticed a change in myself and have kind of come to a realization. BE YOU. Before and really not that long ago I really had a drop in my confidence and people who have known me for a long time noticed it too. They would ask me why and try to reassure me about myself, however, I know how that feels... no one anyone says is going to make you get your confidence back. It's completely and solely up to you to feel content about yourself. In this generation, it's pretty insane the amount of images we see every day. Many of those images we see are ones that we look up to... but there's a line in being inspired by someone and just comparing yourself and quite literally becoming so obsessed that you get upset when you don't look like that specific person or body image. I can truly say I have been that person that just constantly compared myself and felt that I was no where near as pretty and became infatuated with those negative thoughts. When people would compliment me, it was like I didn't even hear it. No matter how much someone would tell me positive things about myself it really meant nothing because inside I felt the opposite. I thought I was the ugliest person... seriously. It wasn't until recently where I finally stopped caring so much about all those other images. I admit I still would tag friends and be like "wow, gorgeous" but it was no longer about me feeling that I had to look that way. If you are where I was, you should go and do things that bring you back to yourself. Go do things that will bring back that person you were. Maybe it's spending time with family or maybe it's spending time by yourself instead of always trying to be with someone. For me, it was spending time in the place I was raised and doing solely what made me feel good. The beach is therapeutic, especially the one where I have all my childhood memories at:) I am so relieved that I am finally starting to not be so down in myself. I used to have so much confidence lol so much so that I went about things in almost a way where I didn't care about what anyone thought. I was the crazy outgoing one and I definitely lost that and veered away from that original goofy person I was. Now, I am on the comeback and have gained my confidence and am no longer in a phase of just constantly comparing myself. Imma do me now hah and whoever is reading this... you do you! Own who you are, because all of those people you were looking up to or comparing yourself to have gotten that attention because they were themselves. Don't be basic like every other person, be you... who gives a care if someone disapproves... that's their problem. Someone with confidence in themselves gives off so much more beauty and positivity than someone who isn't content in themselves. Alright I'll stop ranting lol but forreal... BE YOU because you're freaking awesome🤘🏼 Time to come out of that sad shell and be that ray of sunshine who gives off light. Let's bloom babes 🌻
