To the Girl Who Wants to Be Herself

Are you just a girl who wants to be herself? You’ll feel so much better once you figure out how to. Even if it doesn’t feel like you can right now, eventually you’ll find the strength to. It starts with controlling how to react to other people’s actions and opinions towards you. You need to remember that it’s their deal. Let them think whatever they like. You’re stronger than that. And you’re definitely much smarter than they are.

You’re capable of so many things

You always tend to underestimate your capabilities. Your mind works overdrive on little things. And you compare yourself to others. It doesn’t get you anywhere though does it? You know you’re not worthless. But you just struggle to find that boost of confidence that you need right now. You’re actually not a weak person, you know. You just think you are.

Walking down the corridor at school, college, or university, you may have been alone a lot of the time. That doesn’t make you weak. See it as a young woman who’s independent and can be by herself. It’s nice to have company sometimes and share laughs. Other times, its good to be part of the world where you don’t have to ‘fit into the crowd’. Be your own person and create your own kind of happiness.

Feel good to be you

Wear makeup. Don’t wear makeup. Talk a lot. Or don’t speak at all. You’re far from weak. Be the girl who stands up for what she believes in. Be the woman who sees how much she’s grown and can see how far she’s come. Don’t be afraid to express yourself. Be creative. Tell people your ideas. Do something that you love and are so passionate about. Be extraordinary. Surprise people.

Focus on the people who focus on you. Sometimes, you might not know it but you actually inspire them in some way or another. Stay in and chill. Go to a party. Take a walk. Travel. Explore the world. Enjoy the things in life that most people take for granted or don’t even recognise. Make plans that give you something to look forward to.

It’s down to you

Wake up with a smile on your face no matter what day of the week it is. It’s all about what you put into the day no matter how stressful or difficult it might be. Remember what’s important. Surround yourself with the people who make you feel like you matter. Remember, being yourself doesn’t have to please everyone.

You’ll find the strength you never knew you had – one step at a time. Living life your way will never have felt so good. Are you going to try to be the girl who wants to be herself?
