Lots of conversations are being had about change. Have you ever thought though that the best thing you can do to change the world is by being yourself? How we speak to ourselves actually has a great effect on how we deal with life and view ourselves. Being kind to yourself and loving yourself truly matters because only then can you effectively share love and true positivity with those around you.
You are awesome because you are unique! Be yourself and show the world who you are. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what your morals and values are. Our integrity, what we stand for and who we are is important. It should not be compromised just to have certain friends, fit into a group or follow the latest trend. Jumping on the latest bandwagon coming through is not necessarily good idea if their values and beliefs do not resonate with you.
Be the best person you can be, by making an effort to be accountable for your own actions. You might not can change the actions of those around you, but you can change your own. Did you know our fears, insecurities, experiences and past events are what are subconsciously internalized to makes up our limiting beliefs? If you have certain limiting beliefs you feel are not in line with your core values then make it a priority to work on adjusting them.
We must remember to ground our self-esteem on ourselves and not other people. Fitting in might feel good, but what good is it if at the end of the day you compromised your values or morals to do it. In the end this is going to leave you more full of self-doubt, confused inside and more hurt than not being accepted did. If something does not feel right do not let manipulation or guilt from other people or a group make you feel that you need to change to accommodate them or their beliefs. Be kind, be inclusive, be loving, but most importantly be YOU! Be a leader and not a follower, your tribe will find you, trust me.
