I feel as if I’m not great at anything. Just in the middle of the spectrum.
I am of average height. My shoe size is neither small nor large. My weight is average. When I go clothes shopping, I always fit into the mediums. My mile PR is far from extraordinary. My SAT scores: average. Grades: average. Accomplishments: average. Whenever I do a workout video, it’s on the intermediate level. Never advanced or amazing in any department. Writing skills: indistinguishable from others. Plain. Boring.
It is the worst feeling. I am just barely ‘good’ at a variety of things. Not gifted in anything. 3 weeks ago
but I was at the store today and I saw a lady who looked sad. So I said to her, ‘I like your hair’ and she smiled and said “thanks”. 2 months ago
I have been realizing that I have been getting better about comparing myself to other people. I am slowly realizing that every one has issue and things about themselves that they would like to change. I need to stop comparing my lowest points with others highest. 2 months ago
How I did it: I never knew who I was... I only knew what I wanted to be.. to be beautiful, to be rich to be smart. To be all the people out there in the world but myself. I had such low self esteem and extremely low self confidence that it could be seen in my sheepish smile, soft voice and slightly hunched posture.
I used to look at other people and I thought I will become like them one day, more beautiful, with more education and richer. After many years, I've gotten more beautiful, and learnt to beautify myself too. I've gotten myself the education I wanted and I have enough money in my pocket.
But I realised that having all that didn't make me any happier, any more confident and I didn't love myself any much more. I was my worst enemy.
I hated looking at myself in the mirror. I hated myself so much that I was constantly thinking about the day when I will look like someone else, after I lose 30kgs. I lost 15 kgs and I was looking fabulous. But still, no confidence, no esteem and simply no respect for myself.
I was sick of living life like that. I had come to a point where I had everything but I still felt ugly because I kept thinking that there was a perfect way in which every woman should look like. How foolish I was. I was my worst enemy.
I wanted to get 'myself' back. I wanted to love myself but didn't know how. I read up on many books on unconditional self love. It took me years before I completely accepted myself for who I truly am.
Now I can say proudly, I love myself. I respect and honour myself and I am my own best friend.
To all of you who are struggling with yourselves, please help and redeem yourselves, because only you can help yourself. If you won't, who else will? Read how I did it… 4 years ago
How I did it: Going to college has meant that I have met a variety of people from different backgrounds. It has made me learn to appreciate everybody's differences and realise that no one is perfect. Comparing yourself to others is stupid because you are an individual. I finally feel confident enough to be myself. Read how I did it… 3 years ago
So its not that I envy someone so much that I want to become that person. But I would constantly find myself getting annoyed when it seems everyone has 300 talents and I only have 2x you know?
Especially when it comes to my art, I know that I do good pencil sketches. But painting and the rest are not so easy. Then I would have other friends that are perfect in each and every area of art you can think of. Get so frustrated then :(
On the other hand (with the comparing part) if I am not sure if something will fit together (as in clothing) I would always imagine it on one of my beautiful / hot / skinny friends and see if it will work.
Dunno – think I am a bit messed up right? ;) 13 months ago
there’s no need to do this, just be happy and confident in yourself, everybody is different so comparison is not possible 16 months ago
How I did it: It took a while, but it wasn't until i went skydiving that i knew in my heart i am GLAD TO BE WHO I AM, exactly as is. When i was up in the air i realized two things: 1) no one gives a f*ck about who i am or what i've done, everyone with me who were skydiving were all free-falling, and we were all just humans at that point without anything to parade or flash to anyone else!
2) I saw how small things are below, it made me realize that like everything else in life, my issues/self-consciousness/need of approval of others are all so insignificant compared to how BIG the world is and the possibilities of who i decide to become for myself! The world is a HUGE playground and there is room for all of us to be just as we are :) Read how I did it… 3 years ago
