When you want to have something you have never had before, you might need to be someone you’ve never been before. Changing yourself for the better might be something that you really need to do and you know when you are changing for the better or the worse. Changing seems to be a necessity to reach a goal.
But change doesn’t always mean results and changing yourself might not be the best thing to do. If you get everything you ever wanted, but you don’t love the way you are or the way your life would be, then you need to think, is it really worth it?
The worst thing you can ever do? Is changing yourself for someone. Someone might never fall for you for who you are and so you set out to change yourself. But are you sure, do you really want to pretend to be someone you are not, just so that you can be with someone who doesn’t want to be with you?
Love yourself first. Try to know yourself first. See who you really are and the things you are pursuing, are they something you really want or are you after them just because everyone else is. Or is it just because you don’t see an option right now and you are just too impatient to wait for another one.
Take care of yourself, make yourself better – changes, goals, ambitions – everything will come eventually, and everything will become better once you know yourself and know what you really want.
Indulge in things you really want to do. Something you always wanted to do, but forgot about it while chasing dreams that aren’t really yours, while doing things your friends wanted to do, while running the rat race, while growing up.
And when you start loving yourself, you will find time to take care of yourself.
