Love yourself



One thing that I struggle with the most is believing in myself. I often end up comparing myself to others a lot. This I feel like affects the way others see me. I am often shy or awkward in public situations. Not to mention, public speaking, to me, is a nightmare. But I have learned to deal with this and start to see that I should believe in myself. One quote that really resonates with me, especially when I am feeling down, is “if you don’t believe in yourself then no one will”. This quote is really blunt I guess but it does remind me to believe in myself. You know what I have come to realize is that believe in yourself is a really important part of being successful. Like the quote says if you don’t present yourself as confident, nobody is going to want to trust you in whatever you are trying to do. For example, you are trying to pitch a business idea but you don’t think yourself as worth or don’t think your pitch is good enough. This will show off in your performance. I this took me quite a while to learn…. Maybe some of you already know this. To be honest, I actually knew that I had to be confident but there is a difference between knowing it in your head versus knowing it in your heart. I have just recently started to actually believe in myself. It is never too late 🙂 Love yourself ❤ I promise you will thank yourself later 🙂

  1. How very very true. Mr Midnight, Sir Winston and myself from our blog “Gilmours Nice Place” loved reading your post.
    Mr Midnight pointed out that it is of prime importance to “be who we are” and to not shy away from “being ourselves” as the majority of society appear to do. Our uniqueness and individuality is something that no two living beings share so who is to say that what the others “do” is the correct path.
    Sir Winston adds that you mentioned the difference between knowing it in your head and knowing it in your heart but he believes the difference should be “knowing it in your head and “feeling” it in your heart.
    We believe human beings tend to use their heads to often with which to solve “life problems” having forgotton good old-fashioned intuition from the soul or inner self.
    Meow, purr purr and many thanks for posting your piece. 🙂
