The trend in society is to focus on everything that is wrong with ourselves. We are bombarded with ads for weight loss diets and pills, creams for wrinkles and tans and longevity, self help guides for how to be better at this or that, etc... Everyone is conditioned to think that no matter what they achieve, they will never be quite good enough.
While there is always room for improvement in everyone's lives, sometimes it is nice to focus on the positive things.
So - this post is about what you are already good at.
What are you proud of yourself for? It can be anything...something you did one , a promotion you got, a degree that you earned, somewhere that you always wanted to visit and finally did....
Well, I have been doing the exact opposite of the what society expects me to do. LOL!
I don't give a **** (excuse me LOL) what others think of me, how I look, how I act, what I should wear, what I should do and say, etc. I got sick of all that. I used to be so worried about what people think of me. I tried hard to please my friends and family. They eventually betrayed me anyway. So why waste more time? Now I know that what matters most is what makes ME happy, not others. Forget about other people's expectations. I am much more comfortable with myself because I am proud of who I am now, and for the things I've accomplished so far.
I will take people's advice when I need it. However, only I know what is best for myself.
When I realized that, I noticed that a lot my fear and anxiety diminished.
Thank you Kitt for this great topic!! :)))))
