Most of us have got used to putting ourselves second to others - in many ways, we do not know our self-worth. You are no less important than another.
You do not need to live an unhappy life influenced by what others think of you, that stops you from realising your true potential.
You don't just need to survive; you need to live as well.
Stop treating yourself the way you are doing. Here is a small list of what you shouldn’t be telling yourself.
1. I can’t...
Of course, you can!
Remember this: “You don't need anyones fucking permission!”
Everyone is different from one another, and what you are sure to better at something than someone else. You may not be good in sports but that doesn't mean you wouldn't be great when it comes to music.
Unearth your talent and feel proud of it.
Often, intelligent people are only those who chose to believe in themselves and told themselves that they could.
“I can’t” is the worst thing you could say to yourself; if you keep believing likewise, there is obviously no way you actually can do something.
2. I am not as good...
Stop comparing yourself with others.
Everybody has their own unique way of doing things. If everyone has the same idea, imagine how monotonous the world would be.
Give yourself a chance to do what you do best. And how good do you really want to be? Who defines the standards of how good you have to be?
You are your own yardstick, all you have to do is strive to be better than you were yesterday.
3. I’m useless...
No, you are not!
You have been assigned a purpose, and that’s because you possess a certain skill set.
You have a job, because you have the qualities they want. Somebody loves you, because there are some expectations they think only you can fulfil.
It is only you who needs to look inside yourself and realise, and release your full potential.
That’s the only journey from thinking you are useless to becoming somebody’s inspiration.
4. I’m not beautiful...
Gentle reminder - beauty is skin deep!
You do not need somebody else’s authority to certify that you are beautiful.
In today’s era, beauty might have gotten some undue importance, but it’s also true that the one who is bold is the one who is beautiful.
Stop looking down upon yourself. You were handcrafted by the greatest craftsman ever, God; indeed you are beautiful.
5. I am the victim...
The worst one of them all… The biggest load of BS there is…
What’s worse, you see it everywhere today, theres a whole class or generation of people with entitlement mentality.
You are the victim only because you thought so.
If you have such a problem being a victim, why don’t you stand up for yourself and block the incoming blow?
You are not a tree; if you are not feeling happy, move - don’t let yourself be victimised.
The bottom line is, we have been defined in a certain manner by the world only because that’s how we evaluated and presented ourselves.
The day you stop doing that and get to know the real you, there’s no stopping you.
