You've got the eye of the tiger, a fighter...
If I'm honest I was kind of scared about writing this post, but I think I'm going to do it anyways. I know I'm not the only one on the internet who feels this way, so hopefully I can find someone who relates.
It boggles my mind how we as humans can put ourselves down the way we do. This one isn't just for the ladies, because I know there's a lot of dudes out there as well who do this.
I'm no stranger to it myself.
Listen up, alrighty. You're good enough, as a matter of fact, beyond great enough for ANYTHING, EVERYTHING & ANYONE you want. Not saying to be cocky and think that it's everyone's absolutely honour to have you around, but I am saying to not be so scared, because I know exactly how you feel. I know what it feels like to think you're not cool enough, or good enough to hang around a certain person, or people (who'd probably be stoked if you came & talked to them). Or like you don't belong. Trust me, those feelings follow me like my shadow, but I'm trying to work through them & I want you to as well, okay?
I'm not the most firm believer in practice what you preach because a lot of people who know better don't necessarily do better. A lot of you all read this blog & leave comments telling that I make your day, or that something I've said is inspirational for you, which is exactly what I wanted. But know that the reason I'm telling you to be happy with yourself, proud of yourself, understand that you're a great human being is because I, myself haven't yet come to those realizations. That, however, doesn't mean I don't want anyone who reads my little internet space to come to those realizations.
One day I'll get it & practice what I preach, but until then I'd like YOU to practice what I preach? K? Good.
