This week is a weird and busy one for me. It didn´t start out like that at all, it started out like a slow and uneventful week, but that is exactly when life happens!
But, no matter how busy and weird life gets. I hate to see the blog empty for a week! So I am taking this opportunity to discuss something that has been on my mind lately; never being ashamed of who you are. I can obsess over who I am and how I act all the time and some days it drives me completely mad. One awkward encounter can have me doubting myself for days and one shitty thing a friend says can keep me up for multiple nights in a row.
But living your life without ever apologizing for who you are is harder than it seems – for me at least. (If it is easy for you, please teach me your ways master!)

Stop letting other people get to you. You are here for a unique purpose, they have their own paths to follow. But some people are so busy shading others, that they forget to light their own paths. . DON'T be that person and don't let that person get to you. You decide who you are and when you are "good enough. . You are the ONLY person you have to please in this life. <3 #selfcare #love #loveyourself #motivation #mindfulness #wellness #inspiration #meditation #happiness #bodypositive #happy #health #mentalhealth #gratitude #healing #confidence #positivity #selfworth #spirituality #instagood
Never apologize for who you are!
We all live our lives with other people in mind. Some are better at filtering other people´s wishes than others. I for one got better over the years, but what people think and want from me will ALWAYS be somewhere deep in the back of my mind. But life has taught me that living for other people never works out for yourself. Maybe it seems to for a bit – doing stuff for others makes you feel great! – but eventually your own needs and wants will catch up with you and when they don´t align with what you are doing the internal conflict starts.
You are perfect. I know this because I know that everyone is perfect in their own, unique ways.
We all have something to offer and something special that we bring into this world.
This might not be loved or be perceived as “normal” by everyone. But who cares about what “everyone” thinks anyway?! NEVER apologize for who you are!
You are perfect <3
This week I would love for everyone to try and put this belief in practice. Every time you feel that you need to apologize because you are (perceived as):
- “In a bad place”
- Being “selfish” because you are choosing you
- Chasing your dreams and goals
- Working hard
- Eating healthy
- Working towards your goals
- being “boring” or “weird”
- Or any other thing that is part of you…
Every time you feel the need to apologize or hide parts of yourself… DON’T DO IT!
Honor who you are and ever be ashamed of who you are.
Like I said above, I just KNOW that you are special and everything that you want to apologize for is part of that special you as well!
Obviously, I am not telling you to go out and offend everyone you can find. But it won’t hurt to just be you and accept who that YOU is, with all the weirdness, awkwardness, boring thoughts, quirks, loudness or whatever it is that you feel the need to say sorry for.
