People will treat you exactly how you allow them to treat you. If you don’t want to be treated like you’re less than, put a stop to it. If you don’t like it when people talk down to you, then stand up to them. You don’t like the way people treat you, let them know their treatment of you is unacceptable. If you don’t speak up and educate others as to how it’s appropriate to treat you, then people will think it’s okay to walk all over you…and they will. You have the power. Put a stop to it now., or prepare to be walked all over.
You should always, always be your first and best friend. You live in your skin every single day. You wake up in your skin, shower in your skin, go to work in your skin, work out in your skin, relax in your skin, and so much more, The point is, you spend more time with yourself then anyone else. So get to know yourself well, and become your very own best friend. You can’t like others until you like yourself. You can’t truly love another until you love yourself. Go ahead. The next time someone asks you who your best friend is, answer with, “I am my own best friend.”
We need to believe in our own beauty from the inside out. We have beautiful souls and beautiful hearts. So why then do we doubt ourselves and our own beauty when people pay us a compliment or compliments. They pay us that compliment because they see that in us. It’s time that we too believe in ourselves and believe the positive compliments that people pay us. You are beautiful. Believe it. It’s true.
You have no idea how many people love and depend you every day. People typically are bad about communicating things like that. Just know that if you leave here it would be the saddest day ever for those that know and love you. Know that you are loved. Know that you are beautiful. Know that you make a difference every day that you walk the earth. If you’re in pain. Reach out. Talk and get help. Take the necessary steps to heal and walk the planet earth for the rest of your days. You my friends truly are a blessing.
Why be anyone else? Why be a copycat? You’re beautiful, individual and original. Living a life or being what others want you to be will make them happy, but will make you miserable. Follow your dreams. Live your life. Be you. Those that are willing to accept you for the beauty that you possess in your own way will be there and support you. Those that don’e can be expunged. You don’t need people bringing you down because you don’t conform to what they want. Go ahead. Be your beautiful self.
You can never really control what people think of you. But you absolutely can control how people treat you. People will treat you as you demand they treat you. In other words, if you let people treat you with disrespect, they then believe, that you don’t care how they treat you and they will treat you how they please until you stand up to them. It’s up to you to stand up and say “Hey, I’m better than that and I will not be treated in that way. You will treat me with respect.” Once you have established how you want to be treated, not only will you be treated with more respect, but you will also have gained the respect of others for standing up for yourself.
How you treat yourself is how others will treat you. How you feel about yourself is how others will feel about you. Walk with pride. Treat yourself with self respect. Own you and be you. Let no one treat you with less respect then you deserve. You are the commander in chief of you and how you get treated by others. As the commander, steer the ship in the right direction. It’s all up to you. Go ahead. Get your self belief on.
Don’t be the definition of others. If you let others define you, then you lose the true sense of who you are. You start to become someone other than who you are. Don’t let the thoughts and words of others define you. Be the original, crazy, quirky, wonderful person you are. Set the standard. Define yourself. It looks good on you.
You don’t need to impress others. You should be your own best friend first. You spend every waking second of each day in your own skin. You’re the one who has to be happy with you. No one else. Just be you and watch all the people flock to your side that truly love you and want to be in your life for who you are. Not for being who you think they want you to be. Go ahead. Just do you. It looks good on you.
There are times in our lives when we will run across people that will try and tear us down with their words. They try and make us feel like we are less than worthy. They tell us we are not good people or that we are not deserving. The key is to never fall into the trap of believing their words, and remembering that in fact just the opposite is true of you. When people speak ill or poorly of others, it is often times their own insecurities shining through in an effort to try and boost their own self image of themselves. Listen not to them.
