We all have our insecurities and flaws, but that’s ok because no one is perfect! I’ve always been insecure about my appearance and my disabilities, but I’ve decided to strive to be the best version of myself. I’m going to stop comparing myself to others and do just that. I also plan to take better care of my body by eating right, cutting back on sweets, and finding more time to exercise. I’m going to run in place while listening to my favorite songs, at least three times a week. Never underestimate the power of running! But most importantly, I need to remind myself that I am beautiful in every way!
It’s hard to imagine that even the ones I looked up to were struggling as well, it’s not like they never had flaws of their own, I never noticed because I only saw the glamorous side to them. But even if you’re a celebrity, no guarantee you’re going to be happy all the time. The fame, the paparazzi, and the pressures of being a role model can take a toll on celebrities. I’ve come to realize that this world is not as picture-perfect as I thought it was.
After watching Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, I felt more at ease knowing that everyone has their struggles, and it’s ok to admit defeat. It’s more inspiring knowing that our role models are not so perfect because they’re human beings like the rest of us dealing with the ups and downs of life.
In addition to my new healthy lifestyle, I’m planning to cut back my YouTube time. Instead of watching others live their lives to the fullest, I want to do the same myself. Now that I have more time, I can put more effort into blogging, perfecting my writing skills, listening to music, and drawing. I’ll still watch videos of my favorite vloggers, and hair and makeup tutorials, but I’m not going to compare myself to the people in the videos.
Everyone has features that work for them, and if we were all the same, where’s the individuality? I hope to embrace my uniqueness and strive towards my dream of working as a content creator for the Walt Disney Company.
Who says your the only one that’s hurting? Everyone goes through rough times in life; some are better at hiding it than others. Looking back on my high school days, how I would tell my friends about my problems and envy others for not hurting as much as I was, it was wrong of me to assume everyone was happy but me. If there’s one thing I learned from high school, it’d be that everything is not as it seems. That’s one of the things I learned; I’ll save the rest of them for another time.
So if you are feeling insecure and have things that you’d like to change about yourself, remember that you’re not alone! But instead of dwelling over the things you can’t change, focus on the things you can change. I can’t hide the fact that I have nerve damage, but I can re-evaluate my attitude, and love myself for who I am.
