Have you ever asked yourself if you are beautiful enough? Have you ever told yourself that you are not pretty enough? Have you ever listened to other people saying that you are not as good looking as them? Well, I’m sure a lot of you have. And if you have, listen.. There will always be someone who’s prettier than you. There will always be someone whose body figure is more toned than yours; someone who’s smarter than you; someone who’s better than you, than us. And if you have seen and will see someone who’s better than you, that’s normal. Don’t be insecure. Don’t even try to look down on yourself – what’s important is how you see yourself.
For you to see yourself worthy, you have to stop comparing yourself to other people. Be surrounded with people who truly love you. Don’t listen to the people saying that you’re not enough. True beauty isn’t about a pretty face or a nice body figure but a kind heart. And always remember, there will always be someone who thinks you are the best, and that’s Him, our Father.
There’s always a reason behind a big smile, it might be good, it might be bad. We may see someone smiling so big and laughing so hard but we don’t know if it’s real. Some people smile or laugh simply because they are happy. Some smile and laugh not because they are happy but to cover up the sorrowful life they have, to pretend that they are okay after things didn’t go well, to not make someone or their loved one worried, or simply to not ruin someone’s day. There are a lot of reasons why some people find it so hard to show and tell how they really feel.
It is hard to know if someone is going through something; and if they are telling you how they really feel, if everything is going well, but one thing is for sure, it doesn’t harm anyone or anything to be kind to everyone. Maybe by being kind or by just giving a wonderful smile to everyone you bump into or you see and talk to will make a difference. Maybe you can turn someone’s bad day into a good one and maybe you can give someone a reason to keep going by simply doing those things.
We may not know if your friends or one of your loved ones or anyone you’ll ask will tell you how they really feel but ask them still. Just to let them know that someone is always there for them, that someone is willing to listen to whatever they want to say. And it won’t harm someone if we’ll be more kind to each other, and be more considerate to one another’s feelings.
I want you all to know that I became a fan of JaDine love team since On The Wings of Love; I admire them individually and as a love team. As I watched Ulan (Rain) last Saturday, Nadine Lustre made me admire her more. I also have to admit that the movie,Ulan (Rain), is one of the best movies I’ve watched, not only because of Nadine Lustre, but because of the story itself. The writer and the director, Irene Villamor, really did a great job. She didn’t stick to the common love story we hear and see. She gave us the real excitement. While all the actors in the movie, Ulan (Rain), gave the characters in the story a life.
Ulan (Rain) also tackles about nature. It made me realize that we all need to be kind to the nature more. There’s a scene in this movie where “Pilipinas” (Philippines) was shouted, I really felt that scene and got the message. I know that only the people who watched the movie will get me, but Ulan (Rain) is such an epic movie. You can see it yourself if you’ll watch the movie.
The world doesn’t stop but yours did. Don’t dwell on your past. He was just a part of your story. A story you loved, but he wasn’t meant to stay. He was just a part of some chapters, and he’s done with his part. Turn the pages you might cherish. Don’t be a prisoner in an awful part of your story. Be free. Turn the pages, don’t stuck yourself on a chapter that breaks you, ‘coz the one you loved is no longer part of the story. If the next chapter still breaks you, remember, the world doesn’t stop. Don’t be afraid of turning the pages until you find someone who’ll stay with you ’till you no longer remember some chapters. So, let go. Let go of the things that break you. Let him go.
Many people think that their life is unfair. And it’s because of the things they often do to make their lives and selves look miserable even if it is not. Well, let me tell you things you shouldn’t and should do.
1. No matter how many rejections you’ve had in life, work, and in everything, try to look at the bright side of it. There are doors that weren’t made for us to enter, and there are doors that will open when the time is right. There’s always a reason behind every rejections that you’ve had and will have. Just be positive and keep on going.
2. Never compare your life to other people’s life. It is one of the reasons why some people think that life is truly unfair but it’s not, because it’s unfair to each and one of us. Sometimes social media harms our mind, because in social media we often see someone living a perfect life even if they’re not. So, try to limit yourself from using social media. If you can’t, unfollow people that harm your mind and follow people that do good for you.
3. Talk to yourself in the mirror. It may seem crazy but it helps. Talk to yourself in a positive way until you see your worth and the beauty inside you, your heart. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” remember that.
4. Surround yourself with people who make you feel good about yourself, who help you grow and help you see beauty in you and in every one. Cut people off. Don’t be afraid to have a small circle. Small circle is better than having a big circle. Cut people off who don’t help you grow and who don’t believe in you.
5. Believe in yourself. Even if there are a lot of people who believe in you, it won’t work if you won’t believe in yourself. Keep on believing that everything that you want to happen will soon happen.
They say that self-worth is being selfish to others. I think that it is true, but I refuse to believe that it is wrong to be selfish to others when it comes to making yourself feel great. You don’t give what other people want because some of them only care when you’re broken and hate you when you’re whole. Just like what someone said, “They wanna see you do good but never better than them”..
You don’t owe anyone the happiness that you’re feeling for yourself, the love that you are willing to give yourself. You don’t owe anyone if you already found your self-worth. Don’t let negativity comes to your mind. Don’t let other’s judgments ruin your inner peace.
Self-worth is also learning how to accept all of you, your flaws, your weaknesses and all your imperfections; and not giving other people the chance to ruin the acceptance you’re giving to yourself. It is also not thinking on what others tell you on how to live your life, because you live for your own life and happiness, not for someone else’s.
My life isn’t perfect, just like everyone of us; but mine has a different story, just like yours. At my age, I’ve already felt a thousand feelings: heartaches, headaches (of course, lol), and everything. I’ve had my ups and downs. I failed a lot of times where I want to succeed. I failed at being a perfect sister. I failed at being a perfect daughter. I failed at being a perfect human being. I failed at those things.
There’s no such thing as a perfect person even if some people may seem to be perfect but believe me, they are not.
If the definition of perfection for you is having a fair skin, being smart, intelligent, having a nice figure, having a complete family, supportive friends, being wealthy, and having a peaceful heart and mind. Then, I am not perfect, no one is. We all have our flaws. We all have problems we don’t share to anyone. We all have insecurities and weaknesses but those things shouldn’t stop us to keep going. Let’s look at the bright side in everything. It may be easy to say and hard to do, but I hope every one of us will find peace in our hearts.
