judge those around us ....when it all boils down to it we all do it all the time. We hate to admit it ....but that is the truth. No matter how much one argues about superficiality and shallowness .....we have
been judging one another as long as humanity existed in some form or another. This just evolved and encompassed few different components to it as the time went by.
I'm not saying you should become insanely superficial and go from one extreme to the other. Neither one is healthy for you on any level. But what I clearly am saying is to take pride in who you are and do take care of your self as best as you can. That includes fashion and other superficial components yes, but also your health, physical and mental state you are in. You should never compete with or compare yourself to anyone else. Because while we are all so similar in a lot of things we are also so very different. The only person you should compete with is your yesterday's self. You should always
strive to be better than you where yesterday. That should always be your motivation and goal - self improvement and empowerment.
the progress you are making. It almost has a chain reaction effect in a way. You start putting distance overtime with everything and everyone negative. You start loving yourself and who you are
becoming. All this makes you want to put even more effort into yourself .....which results in more confidence. You become happier, more satisfied with life you lead and person you are becoming and carry yourself with pride. In turn, others around you sense that. We all are attracted to these traits and behaviors in people. We all want to be a part of it. There is nothing strange about that at all.
will be enough for you. To be very honest, it's really hard to love yourself and be proud of yourself when you don't feel good about who you are. So it is not easy to reach there, it takes some time, whole lot of honesty with oneself and work....lots of work :). Yes, people will still judge you left and right, however you will not mind as much any longer because you will know that each day you put your best self out there for the world to see.
great about. The reality is though, those things we see as "flaws" usually are the exact things that make us who we are. Unique and different from anyone else. Those might be just the things people are attracted to about us. So why would you not work on them, improve them and be proud of them everyday because they are a part of you?
As much as this all sounds downright cheesy to some, I'm being very serious here. It is important to recognize that we are all beautiful in our own special way. It's is extremely important to love and appreciate the person you truly are. It is important for your overall well being, confidence and ultimately happiness. Personally, when it came to my own self I think I haven't really grasped the importance of that concept until few years ago. Around that time I did start to realize some things as I became more older and mature, right around the time I was close to becoming 30. I think it's hard to achieve this while you are younger because you are still trying to figure out who you really are. Nonetheless, it is possible. Changing your mindset and the way you see yourself is the key here. Fashion, makeup and style can always transform you and the way you and everyone else sees you into someone even more beautiful and positive while still allowing you to be yourself. You are not required to turn into someone completely different (unless that is what you want for fun :). You are still allowed be you ......that is the best version of you. That is the power of it all that I absolutely love.
