Imagine if we were all born with the same personality. It definately wouldn’t work, would it.
It took me many years to love the person that I am. I went through school wanting to be more outgoing. I went through years at work not liking myself, comparing myself to the other personalities in the room, always wishing I was the bold outspoken girl who could fearlessly go up and talk to anyone and feel comfortable in my own skin. To laugh out loud at office jokes, be the one telling jokes and actually being funny. Sounds silly but I bet I’m not the only one who has been envious of the ‘other girl’.
Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself. Bill Gates
Now in my late thirties I’ve come to love the person that I am created to be. I realise now having a low opinion of myself is not modesty. It’s self destruction. Learning to hold my uniqueness in high regard is a necessary precondition to being happy and successful.
Who am I?
I am comfortably quiet
I am courageously creative
I love that I’m a goal orientated planner and have the ability to be super organised
I am quietly bold and determined
There is so much out in the media today telling us we have to look and act a certain way to be accepted. We need to believe for ourselves that we were made perfect as we are, beautiful infact, with unique talents and strengths. We need to believe it for ourselves before we can pass it on to our next generation.
It pays to know your identity, to know who YOU are. With the revelation of WHO you are comes great wisdom and strength. If we celebrate our differences the world will too. It believes exactly what you tell it through the words you use to describe yourself and the actions you take to care for yourself. Tell the world you are a one of a kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy.
Accept that you are unique and that’s ok.
