But the truth is that we are all bloody under the skin and we don't need to be perfect. So it's about time we stopped judging ourselves for the following 12 things.
Often in life we worry about the decisions we made - if they were really the right ones, and who we are and what we are like. We are never truly satisfied with ourselves and our decisions, and the successes of others and the questioning of what we could do differently are always in the background of our thoughts. Let's embrace and accept the fact that we will never be perfect and that it's about time we stop judging ourselves for these 12 things!
1. Career choice
The less we are paid and the less certain professions are known to be desirable, the more we worry about what we do in life. We also burden ourselves if we are qualified to work in one field with better salaries but choose a different career. It's even worse if they are our friends in higher positions than us and therefore we feel inferior. But the fact is that it is every work is worth something, and if you at least roughly enjoy it, there's no reason to doubt it. However, if our career decisions consume us too much and we suffer in our work, we still have options to change our path, because it is never too late.
Are you bad at math or do you have physical limitations that prevent you from doing activities like everyone else around you? The shortcomings we have they are not a reason to judge each other. Each has its own, and each also has its own advantages that the others do not have. So let's focus on that and let's use our potential and let's not deal with something we cannot change.
3. Time for yourself
In today's hustle and bustle, when the world spins faster than it used to, and something is constantly expected of us, it is extremely important that you we take time for ourselves. If you're a mom who hides in the bathroom from her kids just to get her 5 minutes of peace, don't worry, you're not the only one. The truth is you are everyone deserves moments of relaxation and pampering, because that's the only way it can function normally. So take a few minutes each day for yourself and breathe - everything will be fine.
4. Choice of friends and partner
Do you have a friend or partner that others in your life say isn't for you? Is it because they don't like the way you look, or is it because he's not as successful as you? If this person in our life brings joy and happiness, we must listen to no one else but our own heart. He knows that best.
5. The past
If we are ashamed of our past, it will be difficult for us to be happy in the present or look forward to the future. Accepting our past, the good and bad parts that made us the person we are today is the first step to self-love. The here and now is important, and the past is just a part of us that we cannot change.
Do you stress every time you eat something unhealthy? Overeating junk food is definitely not recommended if you want to live a long and healthy life, vices every now and then are not a bad thing. Food is one of the greatest pleasures in life for adults, so let it be.
7. Love apartment
Maybe you enjoy being single or your partner doesn't make you happy. No matter what others say, you have to listen to yourself. You don't have to be with anyone because you feel like you have to. Love cannot be forced, so it's better to be alone than to pretend. Singles who worry that they will never find someone for themselves should realize that being alone is not so bad, and that when the time comes, everyone will find something for themselves.
It's hard to be part of a minority these days, and it's even harder when you feel completely alone in something. Just because you don't have the same hobbies as your classmates or don't like the same music as most doesn't mean it's a bad thing. Being different in today's world is more of a compliment than something negative, so love your difference and use it positively.
9. The body
In today's society, there are "guidelines" for how we look, but that is no reason to judge our bodies. The majority of people in the world do not fall under the aforementioned guidelines. The most important thing is that it is our body healthy, no matter what it looks like. So let's look in the mirror and let's tell each other that we are beautiful – because it's the truth.
Like jobs, hobbies in today's society are divided between more and less desirable. Which is completely irrelevant, because it would everyone had to do what brought them joy. So if you enjoy sewing, drawing, or collecting napkins, you should continue to do so with pride, and let others do and say what they will.
Adults, especially men, are expected to hide their emotions well. However, we are not robots, so emotions and their expression are completely normal. That's why let the tears wash over you, even if only with an emotional film. It is better to be open about what you feel than to close yourself off.
12. Choice of clothing
As with body appearance, we also have guidelines in the media about how we should dress. But who really cares what we wear? Would you like to be comfortable at work? Put on a tracksuit. Do you like to dress up for your work as a saleswoman? Put on your heels. Dress as suits you best, but of course avoid extremes, which could harm you.
The lesson of this story is, that we are all human, that we are all different and that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses in all areas. The goal in life is to be as happy as possible on a day-to-day basis, which we can achieve by focusing on our positive qualities, and taking the bad ones on lease and putting up with them and not burdening ourselves in any way.
