We just don’t give ourselves enough credit.
I spend all day on Instagram looking at celebrities and wishing that I could look like them. I look at other bloggers and wish I could have as much of an impact as them. I read about my friend’s lives on Twitter and Facebook and wish I was as cool as them.
We always want to be someone else. We want to look like anything but ourselves, be anything but ourselves, and do something other than what we’ve been doing. But why? What’s so wrong with being ourselves?
Because there’s probably someone who wishes they could look like you. And there are probably people who wish that they could make as much of an impact as you. And there are most likely people who wish they were as cool as you. The grass always looks greener on the other side – but really it’s time to start watering your own lawn.
If you don’t think you’re the coolest person you know, then how do you expect other people to think those things about you? You need to be your own #1 fan. You need to know your worth, show your worth, give everyone something to look at and take a good hard look at yourself.
Your instagram is bomb and you should give yourself a like. You should self promote the heck out of yourself. You should believe in yourself. And it’s cheesy to throw yourself a like, or a retweet, or give yourself a shout out – but who cares? If you don’t, then really no one else will either.
You should think the best of yourself and that’s all anyone will see. If you’re your own #1 fan, then other fans will follow. Love yourself and inspire others to want to love themselves. There’s no use in being unhappy and trying to be something you’re not when you are the best you that there could ever be.
