It took me a long time to realize that you can do everything right you can do all the efforts in the world to do the right things and say the right things be the right person still people fail to appreciate or even realize as they’re too busy trying to mold you according to their demands.
It took me a long time to realize that you can be a ripest juiciest peach in the world, but there will always be someone who doesn’t like peaches.
It took me a long time to realize no matter how nice and respectful you are there are always people who never get tired of criticizing you and finding faults in you. I spent countless years locked in a futile struggle to constantly molding myself according to the never-ending demands of all the people close to my heart. As a result at some point, I began to compromise on my own beliefs just to fulfill the desires of others, with this hope that one day they might realize my silent efforts, One day they might appreciate and accept me for who I am, One day they might realize we all are different with our own unique talents, One day I might be enough but that day never came.
Cause the truth is, we will never be enough. because one person will want us to be bold and loud, the next will value our shyness and softness. One person will appreciate our patience the next will tell us to fight. One will ask that we quiet down, another will tell us to raise our voice. if we constantly listen to the desires and demands of every person around us, of every individual who wants to “LOVE” us, we will be forever switching, shaping, molding, changing ourselves. if we let our self-worth and self-love depend on others, we’ll never be enough. because enough in someone else’s eyes is something you cannot measure, nor understand. And what really matters at the end of the day is that you love and accept yourself, all your pieces do not try to shape them to fit the demands of someone else. It took me a long time to realize you’ll never be enough. because you are imperfect, We all are and I chose to embrace this with a smile. because who I am is unique and varied. I’m not a robot, made with precision and always moving with the same calculated movements.
I am just a simple human with imperfections and flaws and deep raw emotions, who has a positive approach towards life and deep passion for constant learning and growing into a better human being. I might be too traditional towards my values, beliefs or too shy or too stubborn, I know I am not enough by the silly standards of this world but I will forever be enough in the eyes of GOD and so are you.
So embrace yourself, appreciate yourself because you’ve been blessed with your own unique talents and skills. appreciate yourself because you’re unique you’re an Artwork of DNA.
Appreciate yourself because it isn’t up to others to appreciate you; it’s a blessing when they do, but when you appreciate yourself, you allow yourself to let go of the expectation of others to do so.
