7 thoughts on a sunday
I thought it would be nice here just before a new week begins, to sum up a few things that we should all remind ourselves of more often. I’m pretty sure these things are issues a lot of us have… It’s not always easy being nice to ourself and most of the time we are our own worst critic! Which is why I thought of 7 things we all sometimes need to remind ourself of! I hope you like them…
1. NO ONE SEES YOU AS CLOSE AS YOU SEE YOURSELF
Mirrors is can be our best friend – or is more like a frienemy? I mean they can also be our worst enemy, especially when we get as close as possible, and study our pores, impurities, fine lines and what not. That’s a recipe for bad self esteem right there! The truth is that if you look hard enough, you’ll probably find something that doesn’t look like a photoshopped model, because we’re actual human beings, not photoshopped models.. No one will ever stand 1cm away from your face and study it, so neither should you!
2. EVERYONE ELSE ARE BUSY WORRYING ABOUT THEMSELVES
Another thing thats typical for us, especially girls i’d say but maybe guys as well is worrying what other people think of us and our appearance. But the truth probably is – everyone else is also busy worrying about themself and their own appearance! So what is the point really?
3. COMPARISON IS THE BIGGEST THIEF OF JOY
If you compare yourself with a perfect picture on social media – you will compare yourself with something that doesn’t exist(!) and you might as well compare yourself to one of the many disney prinsesses drawn by Walt Disney. A pretty picture on Instagram is just that – a pretty picture, not a representation of reality. For all you know, the girl on the picture could’ve taken 300 similar ones and picked the prettiest one, edited the shit out of it and put on several filters to look as pretty as possible.
4. MATERIALISTIC THINGS DOESN’T MAKE YOU HAPPY
Even though it’s easy to think that your life would be complete if you had the money to buy everything you want, and trust me I’m not judging at all I like most people do this myself – that’s just not how it works.. Materialistic things will probably give you pleasure and satisfaction for a day or 2 tops, then you get over it, and start focusing on the next thing you want, and fell like you need to make yourself fell good. There seriously is no real happiness in things!
5. EVERYONES BODIES ARE DIFFERENT
..and thanks for that! Not everyone have a thigh gap, and not everyone have a six pack.. It’s just the way it is – we’re all made differently, and we have different physiques. It doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with you!
6. BE KIND TO YOURSELF
..because it’s hard to be happy when someone is mean to you all the time! And truth is, most of the time that person being mean to you is not someone from your school, your work, your family or what else.. That person being mean to you is you!
7. WHEN SOMEONE PAYS YOU A COMPLIMENT, THEY’RE NOT LYING
We need to stop rejecting compliments! Why exactly do we do this? When someone says I’m looking pretty or anything nice really I hardly ever take it in and most of the time I’m just smiling, but thinking to myself ‘you have to say that’. Just say thank you and appreciate it.Truth is they don’t have to say it so if they do they’re probably not lying!
