Sometimes when I am fed up and feeling like a tiny little spec within the human race, I get to the point of thinking, “what is the point?” What is the point in living, when all we are doing is destroying this world, killing each other, spreading diseases, pain and suffering. There is deforestation (25% of the amazon has disappeared in the last 25 years), bombs killing innocent civilians, life threatening illnesses and diseases that occur from poor living conditions, rapes, murders, everything that is horrifying, seems to be happening in the world at the moment. And a lot of the time, I think to myself why and how is this happening.
“Hate. It has caused a lot of problems in this world but has not solved one yet.” – Maya Angelou
But with everything that is going on in the world, don’t let it affect you to the point of it affecting your own mental health. Don’t ever think you deserve to hate yourself, love yourself. You can make a change; you are the only person who can truly control your own happiness.
It’s so important that you become the best you can possibly be. Bring love to everything you do, and love all living things. When someone crosses your path that is full of hate and anger, do not resent him or her for it, they harbour hatred for themselves. Do not waste your time on others who bring negativity to your life. Get rid of toxic people who degrade your self worth.
Everyone has his or her own issues and problems that aren’t always obvious on the surface, be kind always, as you never know how your behaviour can affect someone. By you setting a good example of how to treat others with love, you will help to bring much needed peace to this world.
Never, ever, ever underestimate yourself. You are strong. You are capable of doing whatever your wildest dreams are, you must never doubt yourself. You deserve complete happiness; you have a purpose in this life. Every life on this planet is sacred, treat others and yourself this way, and believe in this everyday.
Either male or female, don’t compare your own beauty to the unrealistic standards of beauty that the media is constantly trying to remind us of. Be comfortable in your own skin, look after yourself and nourish your mind, body and soul. It is never too late to start loving yourself. Be empowered. Trust yourself and love your “faults” and “imperfections”.
Keep on loving yourself, remember you are your own best friend, NOT enemy. Treat others with love, always. Love will conquer!
