How do you become happy with yourself? Honestly, I believe that the moment you start doing things for yourself and start embracing who you are is where it begins. Don't do anything that you don't feel good about. You should be able to wake up every morning and be happy with yourself, and if you aren't then you need to make some changes. Each person has their own sense of what their comfortable with and their own set of morals and beliefs, and it's so important to stay true to those. Don't let people or the world change who you are. You are the only one who has to deal with the impact of your choices in life, so why would you ever let someone else influence you?
The choices you make in life shape you are. I'm a huge believer that mistakes are a part of what make us into the person we are supposed to be. Don't regret anything you have done because at that point in your life it is what you wanted and what you thought was right. Somehow, everyone stumbles and finds their way to who they're supposed to be.
Look at yourself in the mirror and truly ask yourself, "am I happy with myself?" Are you happy with the last decision you made? Are you happy with the direction your life is heading? If the answer is yes, then keep going and continue to stay true to who you are. And if the answer is no, pinpoint what you are unhappy with and fix it. No matter how hard you try you are NEVER going to make everybody happy, so just focus on making yourself happy and the rest will fall into place.
Every day make sure you are happy with who you are and what you are doing. Don't let the opinions and desires of other people make you into someone you are not because the only person who will suffer in the end is you. Be yourself unapologetically and refuse to be someone you are not. And when all is said and done, I hope you are happy with yourself, because everyone deserves to live a life they love.
Are you happy with yourself?
