Do you fit the norm? Yes, this question may be annoying to you, but society keeps pushing it into your face. We have to act “right,” talk “right, and do the “right” thing. What’s right for you? Are there any rules you follow? Are you ashamed of your lifestyle choices and your personality?
Believe it or not, many people are ashamed of who they are. Well, that’s a big mistake, and we have listed 12 things you shouldn’t be ashamed of.
You are unique
And that’s the best thing about it. You are one of a kind and let’s be honest, there’s nothing you should be ashamed of.
We live in a busy world, and most of us don’t have enough time to clear their thoughts. We take care of pretty much everything that surround us. What about us?
You deserve some “me time” after a long and stressful day. You deserve this whenever your body and mind need it. It can be a simple walk in the park or a vacation.
2. Expressing emotions
Being ashamed of the way you feel is the last thing you should do. Don’t hide your emotions! They say a lot about you. Keep that in mind next time you hide in the closet and cry.
You get to decide who joins you for lunch or dinner. You pick your daily activities. Don’t let others shame you over your company. Jim Rohn says we spend our day with five people. Make wise choices!
We live in a material world, and people keep asking questions about our job position or career plans. No, you don’t owe them an answer. People like to judge and shame others over their jobs. Nobody pays your bills, right?
Forgive others to save yourself. Don’t hold a grudge. It will make you sick. Forgive others and don’t be ashamed of that. You will feel much better. It’s like getting rid of a huge burden.
We all love, do things and hope. Don’t let anyone change that. Your hope is guaranteed, and nobody should switch your attention to something else. Dreaming and hoping can sometimes bring a huge relief.
7. Positive thinking
There’s nothing better than this regardless of your terrible day. Don’t fall in despair, and try to look at the bright side of life. Your life may be full of challenges, and staying positive is your best medicine. Don’t let anyone shame you for being positive all the time.
8. Being true to yourself
Most people don’t even know what this is. We live our life according to other people’s expectations. But, what about your expectations? It’s all about you. That’s why you should be true to yourself.
We all have a past. It won’t go away. You have to learn how to live with it. Don’t let your past change your future. You may have made a few mistakes. Learn from the biggest mistake in your life, and make smarter choices in future.
Tina Fey wrote Bossypants, and used it to trash beauty standards we struggle with on a daily basis. Everyone is beautiful in their unique way.
Bigger lips and blue eyes won’t make you more attractive or smarter. It’s just a beauty standard that may disappear in a few years. Love yourself with all your flaws and beauty.
11. Eating habits
Are you a vegan? That’s fine. Some people have to go vegan because of a health condition. Others like the impact of this regimen on their body. You decide what goes in your menu.
12. Trying hard and doing your best
We do a lot of things on a daily basis, trying to become a better person. This is great, and don’t let others shame you for your upgrade.
Learn how to love the person you see in the mirror every day. You owe that person everything you have, feel and love. It’s time to make wise choices and get rid of everything that gives you a headache.
Show yourself some respect. You deserve that for everything you’ve been through and everything that will happen in near future. It’s time for a positive change, and keep your head up!
