The Importance of Loving Yourself

Half of a heart with fingers

Half of a heart with fingers

Sometimes the smallest things can brighten or worsen your day.

I really care what people think of me or what they think of the way I dress or the way I really do anything. It’s hard if people think the way you dress or act is weird and so you try to fit in. Being yourself can be hard because sometimes all you want is for people to like you and want to be friends with you.

 I used to care too much about the way I acted around certain people, but now I just have to be myself. If people don’t like me for who I am then they’re missing out. I used to care if the way I dressed was too much or too me, but if I like it then I should wear it. People don’t have to like what I wear, all that matters is that I am comfortable with what I am wearing and I like it.

I still care about all of those things, but I care about it in my way. You shouldn’t bring yourself down because a couple of people don’t like the way you are. You just have to be yourself and hang around people who can accept that.
