It’s OK to be youself

image

I am without a doubt an ultra confident individual but like everyone else I’m subjected to the daily pressures to conform. The newspapers, television and magazines are filled with images of how we should look, what we should think and how to act, and all that is surpassed by the expectations of friends and family and our own communities.
I realised a long time ago that it’s OK to be me. It’s all very well to try and live up to the expectations of others but at the end of the day the only persons opinion that really matters is your own.
You’re the person who has to look at yourself in the mirror everyday. You’re the person who has to live with the things that you say and the decisions you make. You’re also the only person who has to live with the consequences.
So it’s time to take a stand. Never mind the super slim models and celebrities, with the glossy hair and plastic surgery altered faces and bodies, do you like how you look?
Do you like the person you are and the way you live?
If the answer is yes, hold yourself proud and let the critics go their own way. It’s your life, be free and live it.
