Have you ever felt this huge pressure by other people to always be perfect and if you’re not, you’ll be looked down upon? Well, I have. Ever since I started this blog and became an Author, some people tell me that I shouldn’t be talking about a certain topic with others and how I should do something else. I was also told that I need someone to proofread my blog posts because of my poor grammar. Honestly, I know I struggle with that and sometimes my blog posts aren’t always perfect. That is okay.
I have struggled with grammar ever since I was in Elementary and I will tell you guys why. I haven’t openly talked about this until now…
During my Elementary years, I started having seizures when I was around six years old. I missed a lot of school from being in the Hospital so much. I was even taking medicine that messed up my brain to the point I had to learn every little thing again. For instance, before I had my first seizure, I knew the Alphabet, but once I was on the medicine, I was clueless. I remember being in a Content Mastery Center (CMC) at school and every time I would have tests or any assignments, I would go to a different classroom to take them. There were also days where I was so out of it, my teacher would tell me that I just need to go home. The medicine I took for seizures literally made me that way and I almost lost my curly hair because of it. My hair started going straight until I was taken off of the medicine.
I am telling you all of this because having seizures and being absent at school is why I struggle with grammar, it is difficult to wrap my brain around it and I am still learning. However, I am proud to say that I haven’t had a seizure since I was eight years old! I am doing pretty good now especially with being successful in college.
I have realized that I can’t make every single person happy and other people probably disagree with my decisions. I don’t want to do things based on what people think I should do, it is definitely okay to not gain everyone’s acceptance. In the end, you should make yourself happy and that is what matters the most.
I will always have a love for writing and doing blog posts for you all, but when someone tells me my grammar is off and how I shouldn’t write like that since I am an Author now, makes me not want to write. Honestly, I have been putting off writing this blog post because I am worried about my grammar. It gives me anxiety just thinking about it, what if I really don’t make sense at all? What if people don’t like my blog because of my grammar? You know? It was things like that. Believe it or not, this situation inspired me to write about perfection and how no matter what you do, you can’t please everyone.
The Pressure To Be Perfect
In society, there is this huge pressure to be perfect and if you have any flaws, you are considered to be a failure. You are judged for your flaws by society and it shouldn’t be that way. No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes; we’re human! If you have felt this way of having to be accepted by others, I want to give you some advice. Please don’t be afraid to be yourself because God created you just the way you are for a reason. Don’t change who you are just because some people disagree with you and wants you to be this perfect human being. It’s okay. You shouldn’t have to be someone you’re not. Be yourself because there is no one in the world who are like you.
Yes, the picture above is so true! You are enough and truly believe it. I am learning to be more transparent for my subscribers because I want to be relevant to other people who may be reading this. I am slowly opening up even more and I love every bit of it. With that being said, I will always write about whatever God placed on my heart and I am not going to hold back all of the details. If you enjoyed this topic, let me know because I am thinking about doing a series just for beauty, insecurities, and society’s standards for girls! I love writing about those topics the most and I want to help young women overcome their struggles.
I encourage you to comment below. I hope everyone has a beautiful day! Remember, you are enough and it is acceptable to not be perfect. You do you!
