AND THAT’S THE “RIGHT WAY”.
The right way to express yourself? How absurd, not everyone can be the same. What a load of collywobbles?
Is that what you’re thinking right now?
TO TRULY EXPRESS YOURSELF…
Is, to believe in & be, yourself!
Everyone can believe in themselves, and everyone should “be” themselves. It doesn’t sound so hard to grasp, does it?
So why is it so hard to implement? Why do hundreds-of-thousands, of people worldwide, lack the simple ability to just “be”?
Staying true to ourselves, is consistently becoming a hard thing to achieve, especially while attaining it both in, regularity, and quality form.
In Today’s society, it’s classified as more of a “lucky-to-have” virtue, instead of a normal characteristic. To have self-confidence; to know your self-worth; to stand for something; and to have a healthy self-esteem. Why is this the case?
Why do we seek the input of others, on how we should “be”?
Before we decide on how we should value ourselves, we look to others. To gain an opinion, on how we should feel about our own being.
Stop it, now.
That’s enough. Enough sending the wrong image to the younger generations below us; enough constantly worrying about what others think about us; enough deciding that we’re only as good, as “so-and-so” says we are.
That’s not anything relating to what it means, to have a sense of our-“self”.
Think about that word… “SELF”.
a person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.
“our alienation from our true selves”
synonyms: ego, I, oneself, persona, person, identity, character, personality, psyche, soul, spirit, mind, intellect, inner man/woman/person, inner self, one’s innermost feelings, one’s heart of hearts.
“these whispers come from our inner self”
IM WORKING ON IT:
Of anxiety; anguish; fear; neglect, and torment. Punished for the thoughts, or actions– that I did not even do.
I was taught not to think, act, do, say anything that I believed in. Because I wasn’t “worthy”. Worthy of such an entitlement.
- I wasn’t worthy of thinking for myself;
- Of saying anything of truth; because,
- Everything I said, was a lie.
- I was “useless, unworthy, and no good, to anyone”.
- No-one would ever want me.
- I was broken.
After 8 long, arduous years of torment, I finally got the courage to leave.
Actually, I fled. I escaped. I ran, with the clothes on my back, as fast as I could, and as scared as anyone could possibly imagine feeling.
That was 4 years ago; and I still haven’t stepped foot in that state. The state I loved, that I grew up in, and where I still have my heart connected to– to loved ones, that I can’t see, for safety sake.
But my self-worth has risen in leaps and bounds; it has grown, and evolved. It continues to do so, the more I let go of ‘who I should be’, and learn to become who I am, and importantly, who I always was.
This is only 1 tiny situation, in the world filled causes, where our self esteem & self worth, is compromised; diminished, and altered.
One of the causes of low-esteem, with so many more things, that test our self-worth mentality.
Factors that play a part in our self thinking, include, but not limited to;
- Mental illness;
All of these things play a part in our sense of self, and our self awareness.
YOU CANNOT POSSIBLY MAKE ALL OF THESE FACTORING ASSOCIATIONS HAPPY; EVEN IF YOU CHANGED EVERYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF IMAGINABLE.
– SO THE ONLY SIMPLE THING LEFT TO DO? –
#BE YOURSELF!#- I know, broken record now. But you needed to hear it. And hear it again, you will.
In the spirit of this store; this blog, and my beliefs, being yourself, goes for fashion too.
Wear your personality!
Fashion doesn’t make “personality”; You wearing what you feel comfortable in, is “personality”.
No matter what sort of style that is; go for it. Be proud. Confidence– is sexy!
I’ve never had much societal classed “fashion sense”, but I am comfy in what I wear.
And, let’s face it, wouldn’t we all have ‘better style’, if money weren’t an issue?
How smick do these Ladies & Gents look?
-WE ARE SAVAGES-
Some amazing confidence-boosting things, in store this week!
I think, all these things, would boost my self-esteem!
So, what are you waiting forever?
WE ARE SAVAGES.
Free of the shackles– We all put on ourselves. And those, only we, can take off.
Impersonators aren’t remembered for their selves, they’re remembered, for impersonating someone unique.”
“So, “unique”, is remembered.”
BE UNIQUE. BE YOUR-OWN-SELF. DO YOU. SHINE BRIGHT. EVOKE YOUR PERSONA. INVOKE THE BEST YOU, EVERYONE WILL LOVE.
Squishy Hugs & Kisses.
