How Being Me Is Enough!
I’ve learned a lot during my teenage life. How loving someone who is wrong for me, ruined my life and changed my perspective towards life. For two years I had been struggling with myself and had been unforgiving and blaming myself, although he was the one who cheated on me. Little did I know that God does not take something from you without replacing it with something much, much better.
During these years I learned the value of friendships, family and myself. To be loved by someone deeply, you must first love yourself. Without you loving yourself, you can’t attract the good vibes. I used to read The Secret every day and the Secret Stories featured here. I idolized every single one of them for being so positive. Until one day I realized that I could be happy with myself. If they can, why not me? Thus, I got to know myself. To be okay with being me. And to know that the imperfection of myself is okay. I started to enjoy doing things that I loved without considering anybody’s opinion.
Later on, my perspectives towards the world were changed. I spent my time reading and exploring the world. I met many good people and bad people along the way. And somehow these people made me realize that I have to be myself in order to face the world. Since then, I started showing gratitude to myself, family and friends. The world evolved and everything in my life seemed to be a little bit different and much happier day by day.
One day I met a guy who accepted me the way I am. He was the one who always encouraged me, spent his time with me and was honest. All of my family and friends approved of him. They sincerely think that he treats me like a princess. After all the heartbreak, it was all worth it to have him in my life. It is true that God is fair and all these heartaches are replaced with someone who loves me for just being me. I am grateful for having my family and friends at my side when I was down. I realized that happiness is what I had been looking for.
Be good and grateful to others and good will always come back to you!
