Ten years ago, I was 15, a junior in high school. I had just come to grasp with the fact I was actually cute to the opposite sex. I no longer had my braces, my hair grew out and above it all I had a boyfriend. Yet I still wished to be someone else, cause there was always someone more popular, better, prettier, the list could go on. I judged my happiness on the amount of friends I had rather than the quality.
Fast forward to five years later, I was 20. I was still finding myself in college, realizing that friendships made in high school were not always meant to be forever and realizing that the world wasn't as black and white as it appeared to be. I was still unsure of myself, self-conscious and carried doubt with me wherever I went regardless of how many people told me how special I was.
Now I am 25 and as I reflected today, I no longer wanted to be someone else. In fact, I was happy with the way I looked, happy with my personality. HAPPY with my whole being. Perhaps this was a quarter of century epiphany, who knows, but I was relieved that I no longer wished to be someone prettier or hotter or whatever adjective you want to insert. That doesn't mean I don't want to better myself or improve myself, it just means that I'm finally comfortable in my own skin.
OK, so you're probably asking, what is the point of this whole post? The point is, many of us wish we were someone else. We spend so much wishing to be someone else that we never realize just how awesome we truly are. Each one of you is awesome! Never ever forget that, and don't ever listen to the people who tell you otherwise. The important people will love and appreciate you through every hardship in your life.
So if you're having a bad day and everything in your life is going wrong, don't fret, remember things get better regardless whether you believe it or not.
