I read once that insecurity kills everything that is beautiful and I couldn’t agree more.
I’ve spent too much time thinking and worrying about the things that add no real value to my life. That’s why I decided to change things around.
I made a set of rules for myself to follow and now I’m sharing them with you hoping you will do the same.
Ignore things that make you feel insecure.
Don’t let insecurities ruin your life. Don’t let them scare you to the point where you alter your life trying to avoid them rather than doing what you really want to do.
Our time in this life is limited. That might be a terrifying thought but sometimes it puts things into perspective.
Think about the things that really matter to you and focus on them. Life’s too short to waste it on superficial things that don’t add value to your life but instead just make you feel miserable.
Remove things from your surroundings that keep you unmotivated.
Embrace the uncertainty and just keep moving forward.
Ignore people who always have something bad to say.
You don’t have to listen to or talk to people you don’t like. In fact, you can tell them to get the hell out of your life any time you want.
Some people feed off making you feel insecure, ashamed, and sad – don’t let them.
Not all criticism is bad, but some people do nothing but criticize.
How others live their life is not how you should live yours. Trust your judgment and live life by your own rules.
The way to live an authentic life is by listening to your own heart.
Ignore people who don’t care about you.
This is a hard one because sometimes people who don’t care about us are the people we still care about and that’s okay.
What’s not okay is letting them back into your life after they mistreated you, broken promises, and failed you in other ways.
Don’t let yourself be someone’s option or a second thought. There are so many people who care for you and love you at all times – focus on their love.
You can’t make someone love you and why should you? If they don’t see you for who you are, there’s no point.
Leave behind those who’ve left you behind. As soon as you do that – new people will enter your life.
Ignore the crippling thoughts that tell you you’re not enough.
There are so many questions we ask ourselves that no one can answer. For example: Why is this happening to me?
The truth is there’s nothing we can do but keep our hopes up and look at the bigger picture.
We must work on our self-esteem and invest in our personal growth and that means accepting the fact we’re enough as we are.
Not only that but we must make peace and apologize for all the times we’ve said and thought a bad thing about ourselves.
Everyone has their personal limits; everyone is different and everyone is worthy of love and happiness despite the differences.
We can’t pretend we’re something we’re not because if we do failure is inevitable.
Life doesn’t tolerate fakeness – it pushes you to discover who you truly are by putting you through painful and stressful situations.
When you learn to let go of fear and things that don’t matter, you’ll experience the true beauty of life. You’ll be at peace.
That’s why learning to let go is one of the main lessons in life. In order to know your worth, you first need to let everything and everyone else go.
Choose peace above anything else.
All the other things will pass and become worthless, but your inner peace is what will bring you happiness in the end.
