So, today, I made a realisation. :) And obviously, it has to do with the photo, but.. It’s learning how to love yourself. I don’t mean telling yourself you’re beautiful, or consciously thinking that it’s a you-centric world. Loving yourself entails that you appreciate your ideas, you support your decisions, and you brace yourself for whatever happens at any point in time. It’s hard to regret decisions because sure, looking back the outcome may not have turned out what you wanted it to be, but think of it this way, at one point in time, that was something you truly wanted. I happened upon this realisation when I thought about why I was so unhappy and why my friends’ words and advice would never elicit an emotion from me. Then, looking at a post I previously made during a time when I was so confused, a thought hit me. Why do I always downgrade myself? What is it about me that I despicably despise? I never hated other people, so where did all this hate towards myself come from? The answer was.. nothing. The more I thought, the more it became clear. There isn’t anything about me that sets me apart from everyone else. I laugh, I cry, I smile, I frown, so what is it about me that sets me apart from everyone? Well, the answer became crystal clear at this point. THERE. IS. NOTHING. WRONG. WITH. ME. If anything, there are a lot of qualities I like about myself! One mainly being the ability for me to empathize with others, and another is being able to judge kindly of people. Oh, I also like how I’m open-minded to most things. ;) Haha, I may be conceited now, or I may be confident now. Either way, there is something that has to change: how I view myself. So, from this day forward, I will learn how to love myself, and I will show others how beautiful I truly can be. :)
Watch out, world. ;) There’s a beautifully threatening girl headed your way.
