FASHION & LIFESTYLE | IT'S OK TO EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE

Embracing who you are is something that isn't that easy for everyone to do. We all have insecurities on what we look like, what we do, our beliefs. With societies ideals challenging the essence of who we should be vs who we are,  is something that really baffles all of us. So how do we embrace who we are, and be unapologetic about it? I explore this in today's post.

ITS OK TO EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE


Step 1: Understand that you are not perfect, you are you.

As much as I hate to admit it, I always had this perception of perfection. I had to be the best, look the best, feel the best. Anything short of that was a failure. If you know me, I am pretty laid back, so I wasn't a neurotic person who obsessed over every little thing. It was the way I did things, and my work, how I looked and everything I did was on point. Most things went my way, 80% of the time. Whenever it didn't, such as not getting that first job, even though I had what they required, or maybe not doing well on a test, even though I studied. Or not getting that guy, even though it seemed I could get him. It baffled me, hurt more than it should. It made me question myself, and what I believed. I had been challenged in a way I had never been before, and I am glad this happened earlier on in my life.

I came to realize that sometimes it isn't you, sometimes even if you do the RIGHT things, life won't always go your way. There are other factors, that affect these things. Maybe the path you want isn't for you. Maybe you just weren't what someone wanted in a relationship and job situation for example. You know what? That is life. Negative things that we go through, they don't make you less of a person, but help to build your character. In my short 27 years, I like the idea of not being perfect, I like the idea of taking a risk, knowing that I might fail. I like the fact that I am me, and I embrace all that I am. Do you know why? There is only one me, and there is only one you.

Step 2: Understand that not everyone is gonna like you, so don't worry cause they are ediats.

Ok, maybe describing people who don't like you as ediats (idiots) is a little immature ( sticks tongue out) but I low key stick by it. Listen some people won't like you, I am talking about the people who don't like you for no reason at all. I am talking about those people that even if you bring cakes into the office after your holiday, and personally hand them one and place it on their desk; with Michelin style precision.They have the confidence to still side eye you in the canteen line. THOSE PEOPLE...  won't like you. They can't explain it... and you reading this you aren't perfect yourself ( refer to step 1) you also don't like people for no reason at all. I am a nice person, get along with A LOT of people, but there are a lot of people on my I can't be bothered list. It is give and take babes. So you know what you do when someone doesn't like you? You sip your tea and keep it moving. Don't dwell on it, because when they go to bed, they aren't thinking about you... keeping it moving and eat some cake. Cake is tasty, cake appreciates you.

Step 3: Live your best life.

Life is short, life is hard. So don't stress and live your best life. Go on that holiday, ask that guy or girl you have been preeing ( watching) out. Order that creams from Uber eats without judgement. Live your best life babes!

I hope you all realise that you are amazing as you are! Much love Jess :)
