Today I am going to write about something I wanted to write about for a long time but never seemed to get to it. However lately I felt like it was time so here it is. Dedicated to I.
I think that we all in life at some point experience rejection, failure, disappointment... and those experiences repetitively leave a mark on us until we start asking ourselves; are we enough? Are we good enough for love? For that prestigious firm? Are we pretty enough? Tall enough? Skinny enough? Smart enough? And the list is very long.
If I get a little prettier can I be your baby? ― Lana Del Rey.
It might be because of this gorgeous guy (girl) you've been crazy about and who seems to think you’re not worthy of his love or this client that thinks that what you had to offer was mediocre while you felt like you did the best you could... and the reasons could be countless.
And that's when self doubt hits you and you start comparing yourself to others and wondering why you aren't pretty enough and smart enough and why you're not worthy of it all.
“Im constantly comparing myself to others, down to every little detail. Their hair is better, they have a nicer smile, their laugh isn’t stupid, they’re smarter, their legs are skinnier, they can talk to people easier, they have more friends, they’re funnier, they’re just always better than me. they’re just always better than me.”
What you need to understand and what took me a hell of a lot of time to get is that what people thought of me didn't define in any way who I was. people will be people and let's face it you won't be everybody's cup of tea. Some people and even if they mean the sun and moon to you will think that you are less than ordinary and that's ok. Because them thinking that you're not worth it doesn't mean you aren't. It just means they fail to see your light and that's their loss, really.
You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.― Dita Von Teese
Don't beat yourself up for something that's out of your control because you are good enough and you are worth it. When you need to prove your worth to someone it is then the moment to walk away.
I think what's most important is to focus on yourself and do whatever you like to do, do what makes click and if you don't know what it is just yet keep looking. Focus on making yourself a better person enjoy every second of your life and the right people will come to you.
Do not compare yourself with anybody else because you're unique, you're different you're not even comparable and that's more than enough. Learn to love yourself just the way you are and your life will be much much fuller of love.
Someone will always be smarter. Someone will always be younger. But they will never be you. - Unknown
Life is an adventure and time goes by very fast, too fast to waste it on people who bring you nothing but heartache, too fast to focus on failure. Love yourself and what you stand for, do you best and I promise it’ll be more than enough.
