Have you ever felt like you should change the way you are just because of one comment someone made about you and it made you feel insecure?
What about feeling pressured into being someone you’re not?
You might even tear yourself apart because of a comment someone made about you or how they made you feel.
It’s honestly so sad that some of us do care about what other people may think or say about them. When an individual does think about others and wondering what will they think about them when they do this or make a different decision about something, it causes this person to have a lot of pressure. They might even not do something they want to do just because the first thing that pops up in their mind is, “What will people think of me? Will they approve of my decisions?”
I was curious about how many people care about what people think or say about them, so I did a poll on the @kyliescornerandmore Instagram. 40% of people said that they did care and 60% said that they didn’t. The results was interesting!
Why is gaining someone’s acceptance important to us? Why is it the first thing we think about when making a decision?
We shouldn’t have this pressure on us and we are free to do whatever we want with our lives. It should not matter what other people think about you, even if it is something negative.
I know that girls go through this and we are our worst critic. It truly breaks my heart with knowing that there are girls out there who literally analyze every single detail about theirselves and it can tear them apart.
Some people may not like how they look
or how their body is shaped
They may even wish to be someone else
They may mask their true self with what society wants us to be like; they start to become someone that they are not
Society is toxic to our lives.
It’s insane how we have this urge to be “liked” on social media – literally. Why do we care so much about the amount of “likes” we get on a picture and how many followers we have??
We need to start focusing more on being ourselves instead of having our eyes fixed on what people may think and not have society control us!
We only have one life to live and we should not live it by worrying so much about the approval of others.
Sometimes, I think about how life would be like if social media wasn’t even a thing because maybe, just maybe we wouldn’t be caring so much about what people think and we wouldn’t be wishing we had someone else’s life – we wouldn’t be so invested in what someone else is doing in their life.
If you’re reading this and you’re one of the people who constantly pick yourself apart, I want you to know that you’re so special and God created you to be unique.
There is nothing wrong with you and you’re beautiful just the way you are. Who cares about what people say, what matters the most is that you’re always being yourself no matter what.
There is only one you and no one in this world can ever take that from you.
The most beautiful thing about being yourself is that you start to stand out from the world and people may even notice that about you then it makes them want to be theirselves too because of you.
There is not a flaw in you. In God’s eyes, you’re beautiful.
