As tiring as it sounds, trying real hard to fit in the crowd is quite exhausting. It’s soul-crushing to see ourselves struggle while others smoothly receive what they want.
Such a rush of emotions is quite common when people are busy seeking the approval of others to be themselves.
And if you’re reading this, I believe You are one of them.
Below are 10 quotes that I wrote for myself when I felt dragged down in a pitfall, forbidding me to move an inch.
But as wonderful as life is, it gave me words that lifted me up to see a far better world.
So, here I’m providing you with the same aid that helped me fall in love with myself.
The calmest I’ve been in my own skin. The bravest I’ve been in my own eyes.Tweet
You’ve been fighting your battles in silence, all by yourself. You know better what you are. You picked yourself up when there was no one around.
There’s no point in asking for validation from people who are not aware of your struggles when they are already busy in enduring their share.
Stay content in being yourself.

Craving the warmth of your soul, I ended up falling for mine. Somehow, this was all I needed.Tweet
Your self-doubt comes from a place where you didn’t receive the love that you kept asking for, which made you question your worth.
But you deserve better than crossing oceans for unworthy love when you can stay where you are, and let the right ones love you for you.
Treasure the heartbreaks.

Come closer, and you’ll see the depth in my eyes. Walk away, and you’ll feel my strength within that lies.Tweet
You are Fire. When you love someone, you shower them with all the warmth in your heart to calm their cold and dark heart, to heal them, selflessly.
You are Ice. When someone brings more pain to you than love, you become the coldest of humans and let go. There’s no better revenge than moving on – Fact.
Always maintain the balance.

You said you were bad at everything, but you gave up real good. Ironic, right?Tweet
You often indulge in negative self-talk. You keep complaining about things that are difficult for you to operate, expecting others to say otherwise.

Do it before getting their affirmatives.

Use your time on growth instead of planning revenge and strong comebacks.Tweet
You are so busy generating ideas to let the other person feel bad for losing you, that you often forget the point of setback from a relationship.

Always prioritize yourself.
(Read Fly – poetry about self-love)
People keep pushing you down, because they are aware of your potential to reach heights.Tweet
You might think that they are your friends, who care about you and believe that your dreams are stupid. They stop you because your goals seem unachievable to them.
But your aims belong to you. If you believe you can do it, don’t let the opinions of some scared or jealous comrades doubt your capabilities.
Have faith in yourself.
(Read Look out – poetry about self-reflection)
Let the roots of your existence spread in the world’s barren ground.Tweet
You were sent in this world to create an impact on people who needed a vision. You have a gift of an abundance of love and acceptance inside you.
Think of the world as a place where no one knows what you know. So, give them what you have to offer, without the fear of getting rejected.
Stay true to yourself.

You keep pretending for the sake of social acceptance, and complain nobody gets you.Tweet
You post lavishing pictures and act cool because you want to be popular. But what’s the use, if you have to be someone that you are not?
You might burn the ethnicity of your fellow users into ashes, but no one will know how bad you slept last night with the tears streaming down your face.
Stay real. It’s easy.

Why hate your own self for what you truly are?Tweet
You keep stuffing your heart with self-hatred and negativity that even others fail to understand why they would fall in love with you in the first place.
If you keep pushing yourself in the dirt, how can others think of you as pure? Talk to yourself the way you would want others to talk to you.
Start valuing yourself.

That’s the beauty of being oneself. Never question your existence because there will always be someone searching for your wisdom.
Keep twinkling no matter what.

Thank you for being your amazing self.
Keep being You.
