In a room full of black birds, be the only peacock.
Being yourself is better done than said; however, in this world, it’s something that needs to be talked about often.
We get a glimpse of the online world every day and forget about real life. The lives we live once we log out of our applications.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve who you are or wanting to dress differently, but it should be done solely because it’s what YOU want.
Not because the girl on Instagram got 14k likes on her last photo of her pink hair and Chanel purse.
Here’s two reasons why you should be yourself.
Social Media is not real life.
We never know what people are going through. We definitely can’t tell through a picture. Just because you see someone with money or designer bags, doesn’t mean their lives are better than yours.
Majority of the photos on social media are perfectly angled or sometimes photoshopped. Stop comparing your life to someone else’s. Your pictures and outfits fit who you truly are.
One thing we don’t want to do is go broke trying to prove something to people who don’t even know us.
You’re authentic. You’re beautiful the way you are.
Here’s the best thing about being yourself:
There’s no one on earth like you. You can’t be duplicated.
You’re one of a kind.
You also don’t have to figure out “who” you’ll be every-time someone asks you. You don’t have to put on a front and live your life as a lie.
I promise your life will be less stressful.
There’s people who will support you just for being yourself. You don’t want support from people who don’t know the real you.
