We live in an age where social media dictates how we feel about ourselves. It’s difficult to put ourselves out there when people’s likes and comments, or lack of thereof, define how we feel about ourselves. I’ve been there. I’d be lying if I told you that I don’t sometimes get scared before I hit “publish” on vulnerable posts. It’s not just the fear of people reacting negatively, but also the fear of people not reacting at all.
I once read something along the lines of, “you can be the yummiest, juiciest peach in the world, but there will always be someone who doesn’t like peaches.” And that’s it. I think if we’re going to be happy with ourselves, we need to accept that not everyone will see us how we hope for them to — not everyone is compatible with everyone else. And that’s okay. That is okay.
If you are proud of what you’re doing, of what you’re sharing, then that’s enough. Here’s your validation. Be your own biggest fan. Be proud of yourself for being vulnerable, for expressing something different, and for being unique and standing out when the world pushes you to fit in. I know it feels good to see likes and comments flow in, but you don’t need them. If there’s one thing I wish I’d learned sooner, that’s it. Be your own biggest fan ❤️ ...
