Have you ever wondered why you keep putting your loved ones before you? Why you keep putting yourself down? Why you think you aren’t worthy even when they tell you otherwise?
All this self-hate, all these insecurities, so deeply embedded in your mind, limit you from your true potential.
Think of it this way, you are given an opportunity that can change your whole life, but, you hesitate….why? Because you don’t think you have the capability of achieving something so big.
You constantly question yourself, why am I like this? Why am I not like the others? Why can’t I do anything?
All this self-doubt is nothing but the result of your self-hate.
What you need to understand is, every person is unique, each individual has certain strengths and certain weaknesses, but, what sets the happy and successful apart, is the confidence and the love that they have for themselves.
If you want to make your dreams come true, if you have the drive and the determination to get to that place in your life where you always wanted to reach, the first and the most important step you will ever have to take is to understand yourself.
Once you understand yourself, you will start liking your own persona, and once that happens, you will start to love yourself. Just this one tiny step will gradually diminish all your insecurities, all your doubts and all that hate.
Accept yourself the way you are, there is no other like you and THAT is your biggest advantage.
So, go buy that dress you saw, on the window of that pretty shop you passed one morning, but thought you certainly can’t pull off wearing.
Go on a date with that girl you noticed, in that coffee shop, whom you thought was way out of your league.
Take that opportunity you were about to let go because you believed you weren’t worth it.
You are worth it, you are amazing, and you are beautiful.
Always remember that.
Appreciate yourself and the world will appreciate you.
