Because no-one else can be…
I’ve posted a lot about personal issues since I started this blog; about things like my health, both physical and psychological.
What I haven’t posted about is how I have extremely low confidence. I struggle a lot with this. I doubt myself, and question what I am doing constantly.
I am getting better with this, though. I am in the process of trying to learn to accept myself, with all of my faults (however many there are).
The thing is that I was made to be intrinsically ‘me’. Nobody else has the exact same blend of qualities that I do. No one else can bring what I can to this life, just like I can’t bring what any of you can.
We are all created to be completely different, whether this is in looks, abilities, emotions, personalities and talents.
We must all accept this, and learn to accept ourselves, with all the good (and bad) things that we bring with us.
We need to see that while we may be different, that doesn’t mean that we are wrong.
I have to be me. And you have to be you, because in the end, when it comes down to it, no-one else can be.
