Being Me

Over the past few months my self-confidence has sky rocketed.

I have become ridiculously more body confident. I am completely fine with the way I am and have never been more comfortable in my own skin. In fact, I would go so far to say that I truly love the way I look.

I am comfortable being myself. I can be nothing but me, so why should I fight to change that? I love playing my violin, reading any book I can get my hands on and eating chocolate ice cream until I can no longer eat anything else for the rest of the day. I have accepted the fact that my laugh will be completely different yet still deranged every time I laugh, and that my hiccups are possibly the weirdest sound known to humankind. But that’s fine; it’s what makes me, me.

I have honestly never felt better about myself, but it pains me to see others who genuinely dislike themselves. Such fantastic people living their lives believing that they aren’t worth anything. It truly saddens me. These people should remember that they are amazing. Every human is. The ability to think and speak and form opinions makes anyone pretty brilliant.

Everyone is worth it, no matter where they’re from or what others tell them. And if you think differently about yourself, then start seeing the best parts of yourself.

Start saying, “thank you,” to compliments instead of “oh no, I’m not”.
Start doing what you like - even if isn’t the ‘popular’ thing to do.
Start wearing that bright lipstick you’ve had in your cupboard for weeks.
Start loving yourself and don’t look back.

Regret nothing, even if it seems like the most terrible mistake anyone could ever make. Learn from it and grow as a person.
