I hope everything is great at your end. Eeeeeeeeeee, I’m so excited and happy and so grateful for you guys and your support, Today I complete 1 year of Blogging, And I can’t tell you how happy I feel that I started this and youtube, I know social media has been bad and all negative for some people but I feel so lucky to have such positive and supportive fam, You guys are literally the best! And you know what, I actually am an introvert and through this platform, I can really express myself! I mean I was someone who never gave a single speech in my school life and now here I am writing blogs, making youtube videos, and you know what I think if I can gather the courage to do something like this, to put myself fully on the internet, then you also can! Now I don’t mean that you also start a blog or a youtube channel what I mean is you can also gather courage and do whatever your heart says, for whatever it feels excited and nervous about at the same time. I know it sounds a bit cliche, but it is what it is.
Okay, so I wanted to write something special, something that I want most, for all of us, especially girls! I get messages on my snapchat from girls telling me that I don’t love myself, and everytime someone tells me this, my hearts aches, and it literally does! So I thought why not write or just share my thoughts about ‘how you can completely change your life if YOU love your own self!’
I won’t say that I never doubted my self or even hated my self, Of course, even I’ve been there, but what I learned is that first of all I was an idiot, you know, we can lie from anyone in this world but not from ourselves, how much you try to hide your flaws from other people you will never be able to hide it from yourself and now when you know it is gonna stay with you for life or even for a little time then why not just accept and give it more love so that if anyone will hate it, you’ll have at least one person who loves it, who loves you with all of your flaws, and that would be YOU! I mean think it that way, we think flaws as our weaknesses, and this is why people use it against us, what if we didn’t think it as a flaw or we just accept it as it is, then we will have no weaknesses and no one will be able to use it against us! Let me give you a little example, You know, once, a friend took a picture of me from an angle that I didn’t like, it was showing my double chin, and I still remember how angry I got, like how can you upload this picture, it has my flaw, and now when I’ve accepted myself completely, I really don’t care, I don’t get angry if I see a bad picture of me, you know when I started this I used to get all upset if pictures wouldn’t come good, upset to that extent that I would waste my whole day only thinking about why do I look like this? I mean Imagine! But now, if I don’t like a picture, I don’t blame myself, I don’t hate my face for that, ’cause now when I’ve accepted myself as I am I just Love myself, and if a picture doesn’t look good that doesn’t mean I don’t look good or I have a flaw. This was an incident from my life, now I’ll just share some of the messages I received, and I know at some point we all can relate to these.
A girl once said to me that I think I’m ugly, first of all, this word is so harsh in itself that we should never use it even for another person who is just a stranger, who you may never see again in your life, and now imagine if you had to live with someone who keeps calling you ugly 24*7, how depressed you will get right? In fact, you’ll never wanna be around them again, and now tell me is it possible that you can ever stay away from yourself? No right? then how can you even think that you’re ugly, I know sometimes you just can’t help but still you gotta tell yourself that you are beautiful in your own unique way, you don’t have to compare yourself with anybody in this world, we often see and talk about all the negative or bad stuff about ourselves or even if we are talking about any third person, why can’t we focus on what positive or good we have or they have, I bet we’ll be much happier, we will feel much happier! Let’s promise to ourselves, that this year we gonna start noticing the good in people and most importantly in ourselves!
I received a text on my snap, that hey I feel all depressed, I can’t get over him, I love him a lot but he just doesn’t care! I completely understand this that it’s really hard to get over that someone that you love from all of your heart, but just ask a simple question from yourself, if you gonna love someone who just doesn’t give a fuck about how you feel, that he just left in between, broke all the promises, who’s gonna love you, who’s gonna be on your side if you’re also on his side still loving him, still loving that person who broke your heart! Don’t you think it’s unfair to YOU? I think your answer should be very clear that ‘I’M GONNA LOVE MYSELF, I’M GONNA BE ON MY SIDE’! Even I’ve been through breakups, I’ve been called a cold-hearted person to get over a person, who didn’t care how I felt, what I wanted. I’m more than happy to be called a person with such heart than to keep hurting myself for someone who can’t even care about my feelings. You know, at the end YOU can only pick yourself up, only you can gather all your heart’s broken pieces and heal it, and no one else can!
This is literally my favourite topic to talk about, SELF LOVE, love yourself, take care of yourself as you as you will do for the first love of your life! Be the first love of your life! Prioritise yourself, Know your worth and know what you deserve and never accept anything less than that!
I can literally go on and on and on, but I think I’ll end it here only, and I can’t thank you guys enough for being there, and if you’re reading this blog just know YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! YOU MATTER! YOU ARE ENOUGH! YOU DESERVE THE BEST!
AND, I LOVE YOU!
(share it with someone you think might like, or just share it on your facebook as a gift to me on my blog anniversary, HAHA!)
-much love, mahi!
