4) You might have a best friend or family member or whoever that you think you are EXACTLY like. But the truth is... you are unique and a better version of what you think you are. No one is quite like you and that's what makes you so perfect!
3) You are funny! You make at least one person smile a day maybe without even realizing that you do. Someone is thinking about you right this very second and probably smiling about you too! You have your own unique sense of humor and way to bring joy that only you can make.
2) No one looks like you do. So if you ever think you are ugly, fat, or whatever you make up in your mind - don't believe it! Don't compare yourself to others because they are beautiful in their own ways as well. Be an individual and create your own look because you are a bombshell just like the ones that you see in magazines. The only difference between you and those magazine girls is that they are airbrushed. But you're a better version... you are 100% real, baby! Take it from Mae West - "A model is just an imitation of the real thing!" And who wants something fake?
1) And the number one reason you are perfect the way you are is because you know how to LOVE! You love family, friends, animals, your career, your hair... whatever it is that you love, you have the ability to do so! That is the first part in getting what you truly want in life, by loving. So since you already can love someone or some thing, that makes you a step a head of the game!
You always hear that quote "You have to love yourself before you can truly love others". And I never thought that was true... until I realized that I was putting all of my DREAMS , my LOVE, and my PASSION into things that had nothing to do with what I wanted for myself! When I finally started to take all that drive and put it towards what I LOVED (doing makeup, reading, excersizing, family, etc.) I realized what true love really was. And it's the best feeling in the world! Every person has the ability to truly love themselves. And people take many routes to figure out how to find true love for themselves, no one route works the same for everyone. So take your time and listen to your gut if something doesn't feel right. TRUST YOURSELF because you are the only one who knows what is good for you.
Short story time! I remember the exact moment I realized that I loved myself. I was working at a job that would promise me things that would never come true. They would build up my hopes and dreams just to crash them down or lie to me about if they were ever going to promote me or help me obtain my goals. One day, the owner came up to me and said, "You have to change your personality when you are here. Everyone is not your friend." And I said, "I'm sorry you feel that way. I was raised to love and smile and laugh with people. I can't change who I am." And I walked out of there and never looked back! The whole ride home I was shaking I was so nervous! I can't believe I just walked out on my career! So many different things were going through my head... I didn't think I could EVER do something like that! I was working at a place that I thought I wanted to fit into SO BADLY because it was what I thought I wanted to do with my life. But I realized that very moment the owner said that to me that that's not the kind of place I ever want to be in and that it was a GREAT thing that I didn't fit in there!
So if anyone tries to tell you that your personality is bad or not right, forget about them! If they want to be unhappy and sour inside, let them have fun with that! Keep drumming to your own beat because your music is beautiful =) The only reason others make fun of others or hurt others is because they are unhappy with themselves. Remember that it is not you that they are putting down, they are really putting down themselves. I love you for you and there are so many others that do to so keep all of your dreams alive and keep being you =)
