I have seen a bunch of things on social media lately that I think are really ironic. One was about a woman who lost 80 pounds and even though she was now getting all kinds of admiration from guys, she still wasn't happy. Food was a number, she would obsess about working out, she would pick at each and every blemish on her body. This was her world not because she was still questing to improve herself and be beautiful but she was terrified to lose it. She didn't love any of it. She was still miserable. Or an elite level athlete that isn't competing anymore who struggles with how to find pride in himself because he isn't where he was, or as fast or as strong as he used to be. We all have struggles with who we are. Are we who we want to see ourselves as or do we think we are "good enough"? No matter what kind of successes we have had, whether they were athletic, aesthetic, financial, intellectual, sexual, etc, we have to remember that NONE OF THAT defines who we are. We aren't good because we are this and bad because we are that. They don't define us. And even though it feels like others are making these definitions, it's actually our selves that are laying these definitions down. We think we are good because we are cute or bad because we are overweight. We think we are good because we win, or bad because we lose the race. We think we are good because we get good grades, or bad because we don't. None of those things define who you are. And even if you are having success in something, things will change and the "fans" will stop cheering your name. All you will be left with is YOU. You NEED to be happy with you. Be proud of who you are as a whole, not pieces. Sure, you can make improvements in your life but know that it doesn't make you a better person. It just makes these tiny areas closer to what you might feel that you want at that time. But there must be one center belief: You love yourself. Not because of how you look, or how much money, or what you have won, but because you enjoy who you are. You are going to be with yourself a VERY long time so take the time to know who you are and what you are really about!! :)
