Learn to love yourselfThursday, April 24, 2014
Lately iv seen myself drifting off in thought, mostly just thinking about my life and finding happiness. I find that society tends to believe that happiness is found when you're in a relationship with someone. When you have a girlfriend/boyfriend its believed that your life will get better and you'll be so much happier with everything. Wether you're scrolling through tumblr or you're at school you'll always see happy couples. Sure there are people sharing their lives with someone special and yeah they're pretty damn happy. However that in no way means that you need someone else to make you happy. I know that sounds cliché but the most important thing in life is learning to love yourself. If you don't love yourself how do you expect someone special to love you? By loving yourself i'm talking about that feeling of happiness you get when you wake up and plan your day. There are many ways to develop a relationship with yourself; go out and do things that make YOU happy, go shopping, go swimming, go to the beach, hangout with friends, watch happy movies, go visit an animal shelter, spend time with your family, exercise, the list could go on for days. The bottom line is fall in love with yourself before you fall in love with someone else. I obviously don't mean this in a narcissistic way, just be happy with yourself! Look at yourself in the mirror and smile and just do stuff that makes you happy. Surround yourself with positive people who make you happy and appreciate you. This will not only help you develop a super awesome self-esteem but it will change your perspective on life. Instead of being sad that you don't have a "bae" you wont even think about that cause you'll be too busy living your life and enjoying the people in your life. Im all to familiar with feeling shitty about yourself but i believe that if you're not happy with something change it! Life is too short to spend on being miserable and pessimistic, yeah life is hard and yeah not everything is sunshine and happy so being upset or sad is okay. Just know that sadness has a time limit so hurry up and get happy.
