The true journey to happiness is learning to love yourself and all your flaws. Learning to accept your imperfections, is something that takes time; but is worth the effort.
Many of us carry around the perceptions of others, which in turn makes it hard for us to see our true selves. Looking into yourself and learning what makes you who you are; is what will set you free.
It’s not just learning who you are, it’s also accepting all of yourself. Many of us care too much about what others think of us, and it keeps us down. Unwilling to test our full potential, because of the worries; of what others may think. Trying to make others see what you see, is what kills your spirit.
You can’t depend on someone else to love you the way you want to be loved, if you first don’t understand how you want to be loved. That first, starts with you, and how you love yourself. What does that look like for you?
We have to start loving ourselves and living our truths. As long as you know where you stand with yourself no one can ever tell you different. Your true self lies beneath every doubt, or stereotype that has ever come your way. You have to see past that and know who you really are.
With a little self reflection, you will soon find your way to the surface and find your peace.
