If you feel like you’re always trying so hard to fit in…. instead try being YOU.
This morning I was chatting with one of my closest friends and she said “I have weird hang ups, I feel like I annoy people or say the wrong thing…”
Now— hold up.
first- if we are friends and you think these things about yourself, I’m gonna tell you to KNOCK IT OFF
second- let me tell you about this friend
she is one of the most successful women I know
she pours her heart and soul into everything she does and everyone she knows
third- growing up she was a victim of bullying and feeling like she wasnt enough and didnt fit in. some terrible things were said and done
BUT now shes an adult. a very successful, kind, caring, beatufiul adult
so here is what I told her and I pray that if you are reading this, you need to hear it too.
” you don’t need anyone’s approval. Be YOU! There is so much about you that people admire and it’s the things that make you you. Not you trying to fit in or be accepted. You don’t have to do any of that. You are driven, you are successful, you are a great friend, you are so freaking smart and those are the things everyone loves”
friend, if you dont feel PEACE with who you are based on the approval or reaction of other people, stop, take a deep breath, view yourself as God views you
YOU were designed to do things in a way that only you can do
You have unique gifts and qualities and no one should make you feel inferior.
The greatest battle you’ll face is the one between your ears… realize your greatness, live in that truth, be a good human and rock that confidence!
