You're different. And I'm different too. Different is good. But different is hard. Believe me, I know. – Mathew Quick
Special people are meant to do special things!
Comparing is a normal thing until you become obsessed with it to the extent that you think less of yourself and you see others always seperior.
While comparing yourself to others might be a motivation to improve, you should first know that nothing is as it seems; pictures aren't showing the reality. Image is powerful yet it's fake, many pictures on social media are fake, girls out there are baked with too much makeup, that it becomes something stupid to compare yourself to them. While you might envy someone for his life, you should keep in mind that you're not seeing the whole picture, you don't know about the problems he's facing everyday, you don't know what he had to sacrifice for the life he's living now. A successful woman might have been living a separate life from her husband and children just to make that success.
We live in a fake world! where staying true to yourself is something precious, That's why, we need to be different, we need to be special, below are some great facts you should know about being special:
1- As being special and different, people around you wouldn't get you. The best you can expect from them is to be accepted, but never expect a lot, because no one owes you anything really.
2- If you have been judged and badly treated, then it shouldn't make you doubt your worth or make you think less of yourself, it wasn't about you, it was about those people who have treated you badly being mannerless. When people are kind they would show you kindness, but mean people would only show rudeness.
3- Sometimes when people can't understand you, it's better to stay quite, bring peace rather than spending your time trying to justify yourself and defend your choices. Sometimes people won't get you, and it's alright, you don't have to prove anything to anyone.
4- You're special but you're not alone, there are many special people out there like you. You might be in the wrong place, but you can never be the wrong person. Through the internet and social media, you can meet a lot of people who share the same dreams and aspirations as yours.
5- Nothing special comes from what's ordinary, don't strive to be like the majority, we're born original, don't die a copy.
6- Don't envy people, do better instead. When you see some people who are better than you, make them a motivation for you to improve.
7- You shouldn't let people make you feel guilty for being you and living your life, when you know your value, your worth you'll have enough confidence and you'll never ask for anyone's approval, you won't need people to tell you that you're pretty, smart.. you already know that you are in your own way.
You either like me or you don't, it took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself, I don't have that kinda time to convince somebody else. - Daniel Franzese
