Life gets so much easier and simple when you accept your true self and when you love yourself for who you are. If you give some real thought to this matter, you would see that most of the time we complicate our lives by trying to please others. You would never get the chance to wear the dress that you wanted to, be with the people that you like or do anything that you want, if you care too much for other people’s opinions. There is no reason for you to worry about those things either.
So, here are some reasons why you should stop proving yourself to others and live your life in the way that you want!
#1. Those worth impressing want you to be yourself!
Those people who are important to you and who play a special role in your life will never demand you to be someone else that you are not. They love you for who you are and there will not be any need for you to do extravagant things to impress them. So, the ones who are worthy of being with you do not need any pretensions of false plays and therefore, you can simply be your true self with those people.
#2. Nobody knows what is best for you more than yourself.
No fancy parties, hundreds of photos posted on Facebook, and numerous friends to show off would mean anything to you unless you value and care for those things. You are the only one who knows what is best for yourself and you will never be happy by trying to live in the way that society wants you to live. Just walk with confidence if you know that you are doing the right thing and you are acting according to your choices.
#3. You are the only one who can change yourself.
You may think that your partner, your parents and maybe your friends are the reasons behind the changes in yourself. But the truth is that you are the only one who can change yourself and you could change your habits and manners only if they mean something to you. However, even if you change certain things in your life just to please others, you would never be happy by such moves and you would only be frustrated, disappointed, and worried about your life.
#4. The path to greatness is paved with failure.
We can never be successful in our first attempt. Someone should be extremely lucky to achieve victory without any failures. So, don’t be afraid to face downfalls. You need not stop yourself from trying new things and challenges in your life just because you are afraid to lose your battles. All our defeats are great lessons for life and therefore, don’t be afraid to fail.
#5. It is impossible to please everyone anyway.
Just keep in mind that you can never please everyone around you. There are only a handful of people out there who wish for your success and wait for you to achieve your goals. Most of the others around you are waiting for moments to see your downfall and therefore, don’t waste your thoughts on such people. You need not live in the way defined by others as the meaning of your life matters only to you and therefore, stop trying to please others and prove yourself to them.
Your life is too short to waste on fake people and fake promises. So, live your life in the way that you want and do what makes you happy!
