“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
We live in a culture where we are imposed with two contradicting messages: if you don’t say you’re beautiful you are insecure and if you say you are, then well, you are cocky.
I have a different message for those reading my blog…
Say you’re beautiful.
Say you’re sexy.
You are your biggest fan!
Finding confidence in yourself does not bring others down, as a matter of fact, when done right, it does the exact opposite.
“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.” – Marianne Williamson
Just because you find yourself beautiful doesn’t mean everyone will, but the only person’s opinion you have to live with is your own. When you shine through in confidence, others find inspiration to also live fully themselves.
“The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.” – Robert Hand
Let me assure you, I have been in both sides. Living in a head of insecure lies is not nearly as enticing as living with this cocky son of a bitch.
As the saying goes, you do you. There is nothing more beautiful, sexy, interesting, or important than the youest of yous.
“I believe with all my heart that the cliches are true, that we are our own best friends and best company, and that if you’re not right for yourself, it’s impossible to be right for anyone.” – Rachel Machacek
