I’ve spent most of my life seeking approval from those around me. I always wanted to be the ideal daughter, the ideal sister, the ideal friend, the ideal girlfriend.
But the thing is, everyone has their own opinion about what is ‘ideal’, so we rarely match upto their expectations of us.
The solution :
Stop seeking approval from those around you, and start accepting yourself for who you truly are.
Maybe you’re shy, maybe you’re quirky, it really is okay. You will be at peace only once you accept yourself completely.
Give yourself the love you always wanted. Go pamper yourself. Do something that makes you happy. Dance like a chimpanzee. Sing at the top of your voice.
Embrace your inner weirdo. For there is no greater joy than loving yourself.
Thank you for reading! Stay blessed!
