DO WE KNOW OURSELVES ENOUGH?
I have always believed that no human being is perfect! Having imperfections or flaws is what makes us human. Feeling the beauty of perfection is great, but embracing flaws is so much worth it, too! Unfortunately, we choose to ignore worthy facts.
We are in such an ultra-modern life, that only beauty, perfection, brilliance, and triumph is paid attention to. Such a shame! But gladly, they never ever last long!
Wherever we go, we have to compare ourselves with others. We compare our personality, our beauty, our IQ, our possessions, and what not with someone who can never be our match, neither can we be theirs. Comparison is just a neutral human nature, but feeling confident about yourself is what that speaks tons about you!!!
Many times we come across certain situations where we need to question our self-respect, but did anyone ever teach us that self-respect is when you know your own self, first? Know who you are! Know that you might not be the best. Be real with yourself. Accepting your real self is an actual act of self-respect! I am not saying it is easy to find yourself. It takes time. It takes patience. It costs us our strength in difficult times. It's overwhelming to develop trust in ourselves. It’s questionable to our courage. It’s blameable to our own emotions. But from this, righteousness is what you will gain towards yourself.
Lately, I have been in some situations where I felt that I can never be good enough, no matter how hard I try. But during such times, at the end of the day, the only thing which helped me sleep was that I accepted my flaws and didn’t fake my own self. The way I am is the way I am! Eventually, I gained honesty towards my own decisions and emotions, which is something that I am really proud of! I started accepting that there are people who are better than me, but no one is me!
People are always around you to make you feel bad about yourself, to betray, to wound your confidence and to break you every time. But once you know who you are, how imperfectly perfect you are, no matter how flawed, but real, your confidence is, no one can beat you in anything, ever!
People and negative circumstances are always temporary in your not so permanent life, but knowing your worth is eternal!
