Important facts to know as you get older!

Important facts to know as you get older!

I spent most of my youth hating myself, trying to change myself to be what others wanted me to be, everything I've been through has made me the person I am today, so I am grateful for EVERY experience whether good or bad. I'm going to share with you a few things I've learnt along the way.

  1. You can choose to love yourself no strings attached

Yes, that’s right I said it, you can make a conscious decision to simply love who you are. Stop putting yourself down, stop comparing yourself to others and embrace you for you, quirks and all. You’ll never hear me say flaws because, one person’s flaw is another person’s beauty, so in my opinion flaws don’t exist, only beauty!

  1. Your words have more power than you think, so keep them clean

No, I don’t mean stop swearing when I say clean. I mean keep your language positive, especially when talking about yourself, your brain hears everything you say, so if you’re constantly talking shit about yourself, your brain is going to take those words and run with it, it’s going to go into overdrive and keep them on repeat. So, start speaking nicely about yourself, and if you do slip up, simply stop yourself, change the sentence, and be your biggest cheerleader!

  1. You don’t have to be what others want you to be, or fit a Mold

I’m not married, I don’t have children, and nor do I intend to do either of those. I knew very early on kids weren’t for me, but people would always try to convince me otherwise, because having kids was right for them. I believe what makes being human so beautiful is the capability to make choices, so let’s be empathetic and embrace that even though we all may have different views and opinions, that’s completely fine, be accepting of someone else’s choice and be kind to one another.

  1. No-one can make you feel anything, that’s all on you

You’ve all probably heard someone say to you “they make me so angry”, well I’ve got news for you, no-one can make you feel a certain way, you allow them to make you feel that way. Now this one I find the hardest, as I’ve done ‘people pleasing’ for so many years. If you think about it your emotions are a reaction of your thoughts, if you allow someone else’s actions to affect your thoughts, they’ll affect your emotions. You can choose whether to let that person’s actions affect you.
