You’ve spent your entire life discrediting yourself. When you’re in the shower, you overthink all the things that have happened. You find flaws in everything you say or do.
Perhaps that is why when someone tells you that they like you, it comes to you as an absolute surprise. You feel, there are better people out there. You are unable to believe them because you’re really not sure if you’re good at anything at all.
You feel you’re not enough. You think that no one really sees you, you have an intuition that no one would even notice if you weren’t around. No one would miss you if you didn’t turn up at a party, but I suppose, it’s just not true. Your best friend would still be dating toxic people, and you had not been there for them.
I know it’s all too easy to say but too hard world. It pays to be someone who is constantly working on themselves. Someone who tries to be better, who tries to improve, who listens, and who is kind. it’s easy to be the ‘bad one’.
It’s easy to think of yourself as better than others. giving up is always an option, too, because you think that no one is watching. Real but the truth is – you’re watching yourself and you see everything. Everything that you’ve been trying to hide, everything that you’ve been trying to fake.
You know the efforts you’ve put into relationships. You didn’t come this far only to throw it all away, right?
An one good person I lost; once said to me, “you’ll always doubt yourself, but either you can go into hiding because of that doubt or let that doubt drive you to be better.” And that has always stayed with me.
Never doubt and underestimate yourself. When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?
P.S Successful people have fear, successful people have doubts and successful people have worries. They just don’t let these feelings stop them. You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up the belief that you can’t have it. Trust yourself, you know what; you do more than what you think.
