Just Be Yourself Just be Yourself

WHAT WE THINK ABOUT OURSELVES IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT US. We should believe and love ourselves first, because thatís who we will be spending the rest of our life with.

Letís take care ourselves first because we cannot pour from an empty cup. It is better to keep ourselves clean and bright; we are the window through which we must see the world.

Sometimes you have to do whatís best for you and your life, not whatís best for everyone else.

 Let us not let anybody make us cruel no matter how badly we want to give the world a taste of our own bitter medicine, it is never worth losing ourselves

I have learned to listen to my own voice, my own soul. Too many people listen to the noise of the world, instead of themselves. I have noticed the butterfly in the wind, some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. So why many of us people compare ourselves against the other?  Each one is different, each one is special, each one is beautiful in his/her own way.

No one is coming to save you. This life is 100% your responsibility. Plan accordingly.

We are all very fragile and feel alone at times. Things change, but throughout our life we are who we are. That is why it is important that we learn how to treat ourselves kindly. WE DONíT SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE. WE SEE THEM AS WE ARE. Loving ourselves has nothing to do with being selfish, self-centered nor self-engrossed. It means that we accept ourselves for what we are. Loving ourselves means that we accept responsibility for our own development, growth and happiness. When we love ourselves, we pave the way for all we want and need to come to us at the right time in the perfect way.

Others may not believe in us but it doesnít matter as long as we believe in ourselves. Let us be true, be ourselves  and be extremely blessed. Let us surround ourselves with dreamers, doers, believers and thinkers but most of all, surround ourselves with those who see greatness within us. It's better to stand alone and feel strong than standing with people who make us feel weak. Let us try to be like the turtle, at ease in our own shell.

Nobody is going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you are rich or poor, out of money or raking it in, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true; no matter what is hard; no matter what unjust, sad, unpleasant things befall you. Self-pity is a dead-end road. You make the choice to drive down it. It is up to you to decide to stay parked there or to run around and drive out. Ė Cheryl Strayed..
