"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are." - Marilyn Monroe
Well, if that doesn't just hit you in the chest! Acceptance, self or other for that matter, can be a struggle, if we allow it to be.
I want you to look in the mirror, what is the first thought that pops in your head? Is it one of positive or negative? Loving or harshness? Forgiving or resentful?
Deep breath my friend <3.
Amongst all the noise, chaos, self-talk, get to your core. Get to your raw, vulnerable, self and smile. It's you! Not anyone else. NOT a tv personality, NOT a social media star, NOT a comparison of whom you are NOT!
Once the acceptance occurs, true acceptance, we can start to build and grow the best version of ourselves. We can navigate a new path, a new journey, a sense of self that is unbreakable.
If it was easy, well, we would all be the same, in the same place, at the same time, and that would be horrifically uneventful, boring, and growth-stunting!
Take the time to accept you and all you are! And let me know how that is working for you! <3
