You are amazing the way you are.
And you don’t need anyone to tell you if you are or you’re not.
We’re all different, unique and special in our different ways and that’s why we should embrace it all. Embrace everything about ourselves, even the funny weird quirks that we have because that’s what truly makes us different and special from others.
We all have different fingerprints from others. No two person shares the same fingerprint. So why should you want to be like someone else when your fingerprint clearly tells you to be different?
Like wishing you had the life of someone glamorous you know or wishing you had features like a certain celebrity and even hating yourself for such reasons.
Be content with who you are and what you have. Because true happiness happens only when you can accept that. Wishing that you could change this or that about yourself or your spouse or anything else will never make you happy.
If you can’t accept things the way they are, you’ll never truly be happy.
Some people will say things like,
“I’ll be happy when I have a nice body”.
“I’ll be happy when my kids behave and do better in school”.
“I’ll be happy when I earn [insert a huge sum of money here] every month”.
But the truth is, once you’ve attained all those things, you’ll still keep wanting more and you’ll never be satisfied.
That’s why there are unhappy rich people and happy poor people. It’s not the money or materialistic stuff that makes you happy. It’s really the mindset you have towards the materialistic stuff and the people you surround yourself with that’ll make a huge impact on your happiness.
Be a slave to the material world and you’ll always be searching for the next high to fuel your temporary happiness. But master it and you’ll find that the quality of your life does not depend on how much you have but what you have.
Appreciate what you have, because there are a lot more people and children we don’t see, who are suffering so much more than us.
