Imagine the world without trying to impress others, without trying to change and be perfect. Imagine the world being yourself, being natural, living and accepting you. Nobody is perfect, we all know it but yet we still all try to be. But what if we all stopped? What if we all tried to be ourselves and quit changing?
What is the natural you like? Do you even know? I don't. Sometimes you try to change so much that you forget who you even are.

 I have been trying to improve myself my entire life. Only now do I realise that that's a sad fact that shouldn't be. We all see faults in ourselves, some find that they are overweight, some think that they aren't smart enough, others think that they are too visibly smart, some try to improve their clothing, their natural look... But we shouldn't be constantly trying to improve ourselves, what about accepting ourselves?

 

We try and try to improve for others, be perfect for friends, family, lovers... sometimes even ourselves. The only problem is that nobody is perfect, we all have faults, always have and always will. We can never change them all, it's impossible. We can only accept them and live with them, others will learn to love them, so should we. It's our body, our state of mind, the only person who has to live with us is us, therefore we are the only person we have to impress.

 

Think about it, stop thinking and worrying about impressing your family, your friends, the person you are attracted to, your colleagues... imagine how amazing the world would be if the only person you were trying to impress were yourself. No impressing others, no competition, all you have to do is be you. In my opinion if you can learn to accept who you are and stop changing for others, you can be the happiest person in the world.

 

Imagine who you would be if you were 100% natural, then try to be like that for a week without caring about the way others look at you or what they think. Ignore the comments and strange looks, just be you. After that week you will realise that the unchanged and natural you isn't quite as bad as you think it is. You might even like the person you see in the mirror. If you are yourself, others will like you as long as you like you. You can't be loved if you don't love yourself and you can't do that if you don't know who you are. The more you hide who you are, the more you will forget yourself.

Stay strong, keep on surviving, see you, I love you!

Find yourself and then be that person.
