Hey guys! Today I want to talk about some serious issues that I know teenagers go through. I figured it would be a good idea to write this in English because more people can read it. So here we go:
When I was even an even younger kid than I am today, I was never scared of what people thought of me. I used to dress myself before I went to kindergarten with the most crazy clothes you could ever imagine. I played the violin and I didn’t really care what other though of me at all. I just loved life more than ever, I had a lot of friends and a lovely supportive family. But than one day, One of my ”friends” said; ”it’s crazy how people can like you, I meant you’re so different”. I think I was 10 years old, and I reached that point where I started to think differently. My self esteem went down from 100 to 0 just like that. I started to behave and look like everybody else and my first thought was always ”what will the others think of me?”
But I found a way to get trough it; I wrote about it. I started to write songs and practice my guitar like crazy! I wanted to be the best of them all! And then, when it all started for real, I had no idea where I would be today. I did many things to get a better self esteem, and you can too. I think that the most important thing to do is; believe in yourself. Of I could go back in time and change my thoughts and just tell myself not to listen to what other people said about me, I would. But I can’t. So the best thing I can do now is just not go back there, learn from my mistakes, grow on the pain and turn it all around to something good. So I’m gonna tell you guys some of the things that I did to get a better self esteem – so you can do it too!
The first thing: I think this is the most important thing. Believe in yourself! How is anyone ever going to believe in you if you if you don’t believe in yourself? How is anyone ever going to love you if you don’t love yourself? Be the best of what you can be and love yourself.
The second thing: go to the mirror, and look at yourself. Start thinking about all the good things about yourself. Maybe it’s your beautiful hair or eyes? I don’t know! Just start seeing the good things about yourself!
The third thing: don’t think about what you want to have – think about what you have instead! ”I want to have long pretty hair and slim legs” is just (excuse my language) bullshit. You have a life, you have a family, you have friends, the most important thing – you have legs! So love you legs and everything they do for you instead of hating them and wanting other legs! Because if you don’t change your mind, you will never be happy with your legs. You will never stop being unhappy if you don’t start loving yourself! So shape up! If I can do it you can do it!
You are all very beautiful and lucky to be you, remember that. I love you!
