How to be successful happy? 100 ideas for a healthy mind
Part four: Loving yourself
There are no two of the same people in the world. Even identical twins differ in many traits, appearance, and behavior. We have our own hobbies, professions, and interests. We look different, we dress diversely, and we arrange our homes variously. We think in another way, we speak contrastively, and we listen uniquely.
On the other hand, we have a diverse career. A bunch of employees at the car factory dealt with in other specializations. Mr. John assembles the engine and Ms. Stella cleanses screws. In the restaurant next to the factory waitress hurry with orders. One cook fries, French fries and the midfielder cut lettuce. The head of overseeing everything and counting money.
If you do not know what I am getting into, then explain. We try to adapt to others whole life, although we cannot change into the ideal. There is no such thing as an ideal. Each of us is unique. Each of us has some functions in society. And no matter what, each of us is just as important. Even if you do not have a job or a roof over your head, you do something useful for another person. What you need to understand is that you are fantastic as a human being. You love and you are loved.
The rest does not really count. It is just different talents, skills and ways of thinking that give the world so much beauty. If we were similar to each other, we would have nothing to say. Life then would not make any sense.
So love yourself because you are one of a kind. If you already do this, I salute you. If not, you can stop crying and look around. Step back and examine the good you have done. Analyze the joy that you gave, to your parents, to your lover, and to your friends. Carefully analyzing all the important tasks done for your employer, your family, for the world, you will see how necessary you are.
Even beauty does not matter. For my husband, I’m very beautiful, not too nice for my neighbor. I know because he told me that. You will not please everyone, and not everyone is a spouse candidate in your eyes.
Loving yourself is also the ability to praise and reward you, trust in your abilities, follow your intuition, trust each other, be open to criticism and acceptance of your inadequacies, have many friends and respect others, be responsible for your life and be able to forgive, accept your imperfections and allow yourself to dream. And above all, have the power to express your opinion and invest in yourself and in new skills.
Write on the piece of paper 10 things that you like about yourself and put it on the mirror you often use. Every day read what you wrote by staring at your reflection and smiling at yourself. Repeat this exercise at least every day for a month. Good luck.
