Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising,
Just be true to who you are
– Jessie J (Who you are)
So most of the time we try to be the best versions of ourselves. If you’re like me, you try your best to make sure you are always the positive one lifting people up. My motto in life: ‘Be the most enthusiastic person you know’. When you start living with that attitude it becomes easy to see past the hardships and challenges.
However, It may be easy to tell people to stay positive and to keep going, but it can be even harder to tell yourself. And it’s fine, but at some point, you need to wipe away the tears and pick yourself up. You are your worst enemy and it’s so easy to fall into a vicious cycle where you question or degrade everything that you do. But remember, it is at these times in your life where you are being tested to push your limits. Are you going to be defeated by your own weaknesses? or can you overcome your own mountains?
There will be a point in your goal chasing where you think you can’t do it or you feel you’re not good enough. This is your chance to shine. Pick yourself out of the mess, come out of the shadows and show yourself and prove yourself wrong.
