BE YOU – BY YETUNDE ODESEYE
Have you ever felt rejected by someone you loved so much? Am pretty sure you know what it felt, to be treated that way. I used to feel that way because I forgot who I was, the person I used to be. I battled with self-esteem, it affected me badly and I totally forgot ME.
I was not acting like who I was made to be, I was told severally that I was made to be better than who I think I am supposed to be. I know I am made for a purpose and it has to be achieved.
So, one day I sat down and told myself, no more pleasing people, don’t let your past determine how you live now or what your future would be like.
You just have to be yourself, be unapologetically you. Be true to yourself, let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, beautiful and magical being that you’re.
To be yourself, you need to be beautiful from the inside-out, accept yourself and love yourself.
There was an article I read sometime ago on the Gram, that said ” if you don’t love yourself, you’ll be chasing after people who don’t love you either”
These words were just about me, because I did a self evaluation and figured out lots about my relationship with people who I call friends, who didn’t love me, becauseI was just wasting my time with them.
Selfishness: a new positive word, which means some consistent, unabashed, self-loving. This, will inspire others to treat themselves better, loving yourself means, respecting and thinking of yourself in a positive way.
So, you deserve to be treated better. People who love themselves are not selfish people, they are people who take care of themselves, so that they can take care of the people around them.
If you truly love yourself, you would not stop yourself from loving others.
Love you and good luck❤
