Being an Introvert

In today’s extroverted society, outgoing and socially confident people come in an abundance. Society values their dominant and exuberant personalities. And they do so far greater than they value the reserved, often unnoticed, introvert.

This favouritism puts extroverts at ease of gaining their place within society. They happily find themselves getting acceptance for who they are and, therefore being able to be the exact kind of person they want to be.

So in a world that favours extroversion, naturally introverted people can be forced into having a lack of self-worth. They feel as if they should push themselves into trying to fit in with everybody else, to gain the same level of respect from society.

But the truth is that we don’t have to.

Because we can 100% be comfortable in our introverted, reserved selves. Without society trying to make us feel like its somehow wrong. Some people are born introverts; they value the need for independence and they don’t need to overshadow people with their own self-confidence. And that’s okay.

The world simply can’t thrive on one type of peron. They can’t thrive just on extroversion. Introverts don’t gain enough attention and recognition for who they are. When they actually may be the ones that value, rather than need, it the most. So surround yourself with people that recognise and provide you with that recognition that you 100% deserve.

Don’t try to change into something that you’re not. Because, trust me, the real you is so much better. So embrace who you are and be ready to take on the world with your introverted fabulous-ness 🙂

Do what makes you Happy

Everybody in this world is completely different. We all have tiny complexities that make us who we are and separate us from everybody else. That means that different things make different people happy. And I think not enough people can accept that.

Because it’s easy to get caught up in what everybody else is doing. It’s far more simple to go with crowd, follow everyone else’s actions and forget about the things that we really want to do. Of course that’s the easiest option, but it’s not necessarily the best one. Because following and imitating others is never really going to make us happy; it’s only going to make you feel like you ‘fit in’. When in reality, in order for the right people to really accept you, they have to know your individuality and the ways to make you smile.

Embrace your differences and focus your energies, not on trying to be like everyone else, but rather on what makes you truly happy. And it doesn’t matter what that may look like to other people. They have their own worries, personalities and passions that inevitably make them completely different to who you are. The people that we need, and want in our lives will accept and love the things you choose to do and the way you choose to be. Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.

So do the things you love, focus on the people who appreciate you and live for you.

Sprinkling Positivity

In today’s world there is so much negativity both on the internet, and in real life. And I think that is so sad and disheartening. Because it can stop people from being who they really want to be, or doing things they really want to do. And then people feel forced into doing things, just to try and please others. But we never know what kind of personal battles or barriers others are facing, so we can never know just how much something like that can hurt one another.

So surely spreading your own little kind of positivity in this world is so much more beneficial and worthy, both to you, and to those around you?

The truth is that positivity is infectious; there’s no denying that. It helps people to become much happier and have a much stronger outlook on life itself. And, to me, making people smile and helping to inspire others is one of the greatest things in this world. Maybe that’s just me? But I think that, with so many young people struggling with self-confidence, being kind, supportive and positive to one another is so much greater than pulling one another down, in order to to get ahead.

Because exploiting and hating on somebody else’s imperfections doesn’t make yours any smaller. So why not celebrate each other’s attributes and help to develop both their confidence and self-identity?

As cliché as it sounds, ‘we’re all in this together’, so aim to sprinkle a little positivity wherever you go and watch the world around you become a much brighter, happier place.
