Never Think Less Of Yourself

It's funny how some thoughts just come to my mind and I always make sure to write them down so I don't forget them. But this topic came to my mind while I was thinking some things through. I've always been the type that think less of herself a lot even when others are saying I'm good at this or that. I just feel like I can be better than the way I am whether in the way I look, the way I think and even the way I do things.

Someone had once told me to stop thinking less of myself, that I was special and unique (Which I don't see 😬) yeah, that's a problem on my side after I did some thinking. How exactly am I not special and unique? I started to ask myself and I got the answer, I'm special in my own way. I just have to put that in mind and always remind my brain of my special being and my uniqueness.

While I was having this thought, a short story came to mind and here it is:

After school session, a young girl was on her way back home feeling sad of her poor performance in the exams she wrote. She had always been the type that studies hard, very knowledgeable and smart but was always dull in expressing herself in exams.

What if you're just looking down on yourself, that you're incapable of becoming the best in school?

She heard a voice from behind as her thoughts went away immediately.

She turned around and saw her school mistress,

I know what you are facing at school, you are the most brilliant but whenever you have exams you forget what you read and then you fail the exams.

The school mistress said putting her hand on the young girl's shoulder.

The young girl burst into tears and said,

I am not brilliant at all. I am so dull because I always fail my exams, it's not about studying always. I just don't have the brain to take them to the exam hall.

The mistress told her to believe more in herself and to accept that she was brilliant. The mistress also gave her tips on how to study to remember. The young girl took all her mistress said to heart and she began to see improvement.

She became one of the best students in school and she didn't stop at just being the best, she tried to make her fellow school mates never think less of themselves.

One thing that makes some people think less of ourselves is "intimidation" they may have faced some bullies who only say less of people they come across, they never see anything good in a person. Allowing such people's words get to you will surely cause you to less of yourself.

Be you! You are special and unique, there is no other person like you. That should make you feel special. Never think less of yourself even for one second 😉

When you remember that there is only one YOU, then you find it easy to acknowledge the fact that you are unique and special.

No one can do what you do like you, no one can be the best you except you!

Beautiful message here.
And I can feel the genuine connection with the reader - explaining your heart and being vulnerable.

You are amazing Merit 😊

I know that at times it can be hard to see yourself the way that others see you. But that's also what makes you special - because that's humility.

Just don't let the humility take a turn and become something else.
Because humility can also turn into a sort of pride. hmmm what do I mean about that?

Well - if we start to think that we are too low, and too unworthy, we are actually spending a LOT of time thinking of ourselves. hahaha

even in the negative! Spending all that time focused on yourself becomes a very prideful stance to take! Isn't that funny? But finding balance in our lives, and in our evaluations and in the time we spend on subjects.

I've struggled also in exactly what you are talking about here. And when someone told me that I could fall into pride by allowing myself to focus so much on myself - oooh that was an eye-opener hahahaha

It took me a moment to see the lesson - but then I realized - you know what helps all around?

Instead of focusing on where you lack - focus on how you can GIVE to others. that will help in multiple ways

  1. it will take your focus off of you! a good thing hehehe
  2. it will actually lift your mood because you see that you ARE good at helping others
  3. it will make others feel amazing to have your insight and love and compassion

so instead of focusing on how we fail - find ways that we can help others succeed! its a win all around!

and once again - you're amazing :)

Wow 🤭 ma'am you're the amazing one here, not me. Or should I say "WE'RE BOTH AMAZING" 🙈

Is this supposed to be a comment or a post that more people will read? It's so full of lessons.

Humility can also be pride? That's really new to me and I'm glad you explained it very well.

Thanks for your valid and knowledgeable contribution ma'am, I really appreciate 😊

hehehehe sometimes i really do write a post under people's posts hahahahahahaha

i just get carried away with my comment sections LOL (cuz the comment section is my favorite place to be LOL)

but yep - humility taken too far - will just end up being a form of pride.

balance is always necessary :)

i love you honey!
