WEEKEND THOUGHTS #1

Having a low opinion of your self is not “modesty”. It’s self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not “egotism”. It’s a necessary precondition to happiness and success. ~Bobbe Sommer
1/3rd of our lives we lead life of shadows. Our life somehow always revolves around certain peoples. When they never get a “NO”, they stop acknowledging everything we do. We all love it when we get things done easily.
And start taking everything around for granted. That leads to low self-esteem. Then we begin a stupid game of listing down our flaws and failures. No, it’s not to improve. Just to bargain how worthless we are.
Is it that important to have people’s opinion about how good you are? We need them as a reminder but never as an addiction. Not to that extent where we keep waiting others to say and finally we lose our self worth. We need to focus on ourselves. Have our own space and time. KEEP THINKING why we need not take every poisoned arrow aimed at us, why we should often say NO, why self love is undeniable, why we are worth finding ourselves!
And then we do this comparison thing. I don’t even understand the whole logic behind this. Instead we could just look for inspiration in them. Someone around is better than you. But you are also better than a lot of people. Why would you treat yourself low?
Seeking happiness through perfection had been always wrong way to deal with life. We need peace to embrace happiness. We need to accept our life for however it is. But that never should stop us from working for betterment. Seek higher values, but desire simple life.
Whatever you do let it make you feel good. Right feeling leads to right doing. Falling in love with each of your scars is very important to feel content. Kiss your scars, love your flaws, believe in your morals, forgive people, move on, let go. Do everything that will make you feel liberated.
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”
– Buddha
