We all have things we are not proud of about ourselves or feel ashamed of doing.
Feeling ashamed is normal, but holding on to that thought is not healthy.
Of course, life doesn’t always go the way we plan. Maybe you yearn to be like others and want to fit in. But feeling shame can be toxic and hurt your health and self-esteem.
What can you do to get over this?
- Recognize your strengths
- Focus on the good things in life
- See the forest, not the trees
- Realize that there’s no need to be perfect
- Know that there’s no need to fit in
- Be courageous enough to follow your own path
- Practice self-love
- Don’t focus on what others think
- Be kind to yourself.
Shame hurts, but learn to overcome it. Remember it is okay to be imperfect. Be proud of who you are.
If you find it difficult to deal with it on your own, there’s absolutely no shame in seeking professional help, to enable you to see yourself as worthy.
“Hey YOU, yes, you.
Stop being unhappy with yourself, you are perfect.
Stop wishing you were someone else
or that someone liked you as much as they like someone else.
Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you.
Stop hating your body, your face, your personality,
your quirks, Love them. Without those things, you wouldn’t be you.
Be confident with who you are.
Smile, it’ll draw people in.
If anyone hates you because you’re happy with yourself
Your happiness doesn’t depend on others.
Be happy because you love who you are,
love your flaws,
love your imperfections,
because they make you and
“You” are pretty amazing.”
