We struggle for a lifetime to accept ourselves, to love ourselves, and to feel fulfilled. Of course, no one is entirely happy with themselves. However, there are people who have a much harder life than you and still able to smile. But how can I feel good about myself? Is it OK if I don’t follow any fad diet, a self-proclaimed fitness guru or an influencer? Do I have to look like a supermodel to please myself and others? Lack of self-confidence, dissatisfaction has become quite common these days. It is due to this fast-paced world of the internet. You keep searching for positive impulses, check Instagram and Facebook several times a day, and like many girls, tend to compare yourself to the influencers.
You don’t have to copy the look and behaviour of the stars to please others. And don’t seek the opinion of other people. Their opinion doesn’t matter. You don’t have to follow anyone and anything that doesn’t fit well with your inner or outer self. People are all unique in their own kind. The more you adopt this approach, the more comfortable you will feel with yourself. You might develop a passion for a healthy lifestyle if that gives you happiness. But not because someone else trying to influence you how to live your life. Only do that if you feel that you will be happier than before by doing it.
Always be true to yourself!
However, you can learn the benefits of a healthy lifestyle if it is your desire, and you know you will be happier. Being healthy doesn’t necessarily mean being happy. It’s the other way around: You can’t be pleased while unwell. A reasonable goal is to be well enough to enjoy your life. You have to define yourself what “well enough” means for you. How much wellness is “enough for you to feel good about yourself. One might consider being well if they are not sick; for others, it’s not enough and wants to look beautiful, feel healthy, sporty, and mentally balanced.
When you start making changes to improve your overall health and after all, your life, start by taking baby steps to succeed. Many people try to change overnight. Quick change only leads to frustrations.
When you are working to change your life, make sure you seek help from the right source. Search through the available information and select carefully. Be careful; people are often got misinformed, either intentionally or otherwise. Keep in mind: Always the most stupid is the loudest.
