Don’t Change, Be Yourself

  “Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.”

Change. We’ve all thought about it. Maybe it worked for you, maybe it didn’t. But there are many different types of change. There’s the type of ‘change’ when you want your life to be a bit more interesting, there’s the ‘ change ‘ when you want to start becoming a healthier person, and the list goes on….But NEVER change yourself just to please another person. Maybe you want to be friends with them, or maybe even more than that, but don’t change yourself for that. In the end the person will not appreciate and value the true you, and you won’t be comfortable being someone you’re not. Being someone you’re not and having to keep up that play is a hard and difficult task. You will give up midway due to some reasons most probably, or you will continue to bear the pain till the end..when you realize that you’ve achieved nothing.

A lot of people have tried to change themselves for other people. But why? Why do you want them to know you so badly that you would change yourself? You just be the normal you , talk to other people normally and they will start liking you for you. Being yourself is something hard in this society where everybody tries to blend in and try to be something they’re not. Don’t apologize if people don’t like you being you, feel sorry for them because they can’t be theirselves either most probably. At least if you’re being yourself, you’re being an original and not a copy. Just let yourself be yourself, then you won’t have to worry about anything . If you’re being yourself, you can be very unique, talented and creative in your own way without having to think what others think about.

“Be yourself before you forget who you really are”. You were created for a purpose. Everyone has an opportunity to be good at whatever they want, Be it football, chess, dance etc.  So do what you love! Love people and people will love you back. Love life and life will love you back. Being yourself is better than being a fake or a liar. We live in a world where we get constant pressure to be like someone else. This is known as comparison. Don’t let this get to you, you need to step up your game and prove you can be who you want to be in this world. Change can be good for some instances, change can also be considered as a good thing. But changing yourself is never the solution to anything.

Remember these golden words,” Be yourself. Accept yourself. Value yourself. Forgive yourself. Bless yourself. Express yourself. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Empower yourself”. You aren’t going to achieve anything by being someone else. Don’t be anything other than yourself. People will then know you for your strength and not weakness.

” Beauty begins the moment you start being yourself.”

The truth about life

image           “Life is like a camera. Focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out- Take another shot”

We’ve all heard that quote at some point. We want life to go as we wish it could, would and should. But if that keeps going on, then it’s not life. In the end it will turn boring. Nowadays we don’t focus on what’s important for us, instead we want to know what goes on in other people lives. We capture what we call “good times” like going to the mall or eating an ice cream with loads of selfies and pictures. Most of us are never able to develop from the negatives because once a person says something bad about us, it keeps on replaying in our heads, and eventually it gets stuck there.

I was born in the 21st century. So I don’t know what happened in the 90’s and 80’s. But one thing I know is that they had more fun than us. We never made so many friends that we could go out and play with , instead we accepted friend requests on Facebook from a stranger having a lot of mutual friends with us, and we don’t even talk to them or the mutual friends often. Unlike the 90’s and 80’s kids who had real goals, our goals were to get a certain amount of followers and likes on Instagram.

What we are living like today is not life. We are missing out on a lot of things that we might regret missing  in the future . Nowadays we see elementary school kids with iPhones who never leave the house. Our schools have laptops, projectors and such. Now don’t get me wrong, having all this is truly a blessing. But nowadays once we start to use something, we forget to stop. Most of us never played real games like hide and seek or such, instead we mastered candy crush and temple run.

We need to start living life for a reason. Not just for WiFi and games but also for the betterment of the world. Don’t live life on social media. In social media, nobody gives a crap about theirselves, they look at what shit other people have been doing. Stop sending messages on your group chats in whatsapp, instead talk to them face to face.

Stop living life the wrong way, start living it the right way from now on.
