No matter how many people think you’re awesome and no matter how many praises and good comments you get everyday, it’s hard to feel really happy. It’s like despite all the good things you’re hearing, you just can’t stop hating yourself.
It’s because you don’t know your real flaws- the flaws that you have within you. They are those things that make you feel like you don’t belong in your own body.
Now, to address those issues, here are 15 tips on how to live a fulfilling life.
Be good to yourself
If you will not be kind to yourself, who else will?
You need to take good care of your body because that is your temple. You need to protect it against your detractors and the only way to save yourself from them is to love yourself. Always remember that you should be the first person who should accept you for what you are.
Create a support system
No matter how hard you try to be good to yourself, if the people around you like to disparage you, it’s still of no use. If you have a set of friends who always keep pointing out your flaws, distance yourself from them.
It may be hurtful to leave them, but it will be more painful if you will stay. You don’t need people who keep on giving up on you. You need people who will stay despite your shortcomings.
Dissolve feelings of shamefulness
You are ashamed of yourself because you think that you are not worthy to be loved and appreciated. You think that people will always point out your defect that’s why you just chose to hide it.
But, remember this:
Your skin color is beautiful and your scars are part of your journey. It’s society’s standard of beauty that must be forgotten.
Embrace your differences
You are born like that because you are special. If you will try to acquaint yourself with how society accepts every human being, you’ll end up being lost in the ocean of masked individuals.
Your differences make you unique, so you should own your individuality. If you are going to get rid of it, how would people distinguish you?
Focus on the positive side
Don’t think that your imperfections are the reasons why you failed. Everything happens for a reason and the reason is that you deserve much better.
If you will just look closely, you will realize that there’s a bright side in every situation. Don’t focus on the bad things that you forget how great life is. After all, it’s just a bad day, not a bad life.
Stop rating yourself
When you rate yourself, you’re creating a standard that needs to be met. If you will set criteria every day and you’re not able to achieve them, you’ll end up dissatisfied for no reasons.
Rating yourself isn’t healthy. It will stop you from accepting your strengths and weaknesses as a person. It can even make you feel insecure about yourself.
