You are you: Let it be yourself

in OCD4 months ago

Be yourself - this phrase you have heard too many times and read quotes related to it countless times over. But still, we all need to be reminded sometimes to be just that, to let ourselves reminded what we're made of.

Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness.
-Allen Ginsberg



Embrace yourself. That's first and foremost. We all idolize some people, we wish to be like them but we forget that we're not them. You are who you are and they are who they are. Neither you can be them nor anyone else going to make you feel like you're like the person you idolize. So, don't try to imitate someone else. Be who you are.

Be proud. More importantly, be proud of who you are. Yes, be proud of yourself. The real you, the "you" you, the one with all the flaws and perfection, be proud of that person. If only you're proud of yourself then only can you make others proud of you.


Love yourself. There are bigger love than self-love, but love starts within yourself. To love one own self is the hardest thing to do because it requires that you love every bit of yourself, every bit that is good and bad. Tell yourself that you love the person you're every day. Self-love is important to grow confidence. It will bring out the courage from inside.

Be brave. Be bold. Speak out what's on your mind and not what other people want to hear from you. Don't try to sound like someone else. Bring out your own voice and show everyone who you are. Don't let anyone make you doubt yourself. If you know in your heart then don't shy away.



Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. - Marilyn Monroe

You don't need thousands of people to love you or care about you. YOU are what you need first. Only by being you and loving yourself that you can embrace the world and be truly happy. You need to care about yourself and love yourself. Don’t pay attention to the negative vibes that someone else is sending towards you. Not everyone is good and not everyone is bad. Choose your own crowd and stick to them, but most importantly be your own person.

Felt good to read all of it! Any now and then is good to receive some motivation to keep me moving! Sometimes it's pretty easy especially with all the mess going on to feel down and useless.
I'll just bookmark this and read it everytime I feel like that ;)
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you do much... I'm really glad that you liked it... often times we forget that even if there's no one else around us, we have ourselves with us for the rest of our lives
