Have you ever tried checking yourself in the mirror to ask random questions? Like, Am I beautiful? Am I worth it? Do I matter? What answers did you get? Are you satisfied with what you get?

Self-doubt, lack of confidence, overthinking, afraid to change, afraid to get hurt .. These are just some of the many reasons why we are not succeeding in life. The worst part is, it is within ourselves.

You are too afraid to make a change to the point that you never get out of your comfort zone. You are too complacent in that position that you don't care what is outside. You think taking a tiny step will make your world collapse and you don't like that idea. So instead of trying new acts or attending new classes, you rather stay inside your room doing the same things over and over again.

You doubt yourself. You have the talent, the skills but you are lacking confidence. You don't believe that you can ace the declamation contest so you just keep talking in front of the mirror doing your mini-speech. So you ended up one of the audience,s not a contestant.

You think too much to the point that you will just shrug off the new ideas you thought. You know what exactly to do but you keep on entertaining even negative thoughts and let them occupied your entire nervous system. Your ideas matter and have value but you keep telling yourself that they are not and no one will care to listen to you.

You don't trust yourself as much as you trust others. A sad reality but it is happening. You always rely on your decisions with others. Who told you that you need to get their approval for you to have your hair dye red? It is your hair in the first place so why ask for someone's permission first? Unless she is your mom.

See? The greatest enemy we have is not the one sitting in front of your classroom, or your best friends with who you shared your deepest secrets. Not even your siblings who love to annoy you. Check the mirror and you will find out! It is YOU, it is always YOU. Your insecurities, your untold thoughts and ideas, your unspoken dreams are your worst enemy. I know it is not easy to start doing things new to you but there is no harm in trying them. Also, start loving yourself more, no one will do that for you aside from you.

Self-love

It is not fair to say or even to think that self-love is not important. It is the first thing everyone should be doing now. It is often being neglected and before we know it we don't even know ourselves. How we face the world, the universe rather will start with how we face ourselves in the mirror everyday. Even if you surround yourself with good and happy people, if you are not welcome for change, nothing will change. It lies in how you see yourself, how you treat yourself, how good or bad you think you are. You are beautiful, talented, intelligent, awesome, gorgeous! You can be whatever you want to be just believe in yourself and you will be.

Your actions reflect what is on your mind. If you keep on doubting and questioning your abilities, you will never get to your destination. Start your day by having positive thoughts on your mind. You can check your bible, favorite books or just random tweets and look for some random quotes that can uplift your spirit. Keep telling yourself that you can do it and you are halfway there already. All of us make mistakes so don't be mean to yourself if you have committed once or many times in the past, just learn from them. It can be your armor to face your future someday.

Before anything else, check these awesome people's works too. They all rock!

Don't forget that what others will think and say about you is beyond your control. But what will you do to your life is something you can control. Remember that you are the captain of your ship, not your neighbors nor your friends. It is up to you how are you going to run your life.

My Thoughts

I just want to say that you are loved. You are worth it and that is all that matters. Don't let anyone or even yourself tell you that you aren't. Be brave, bold, free. Fly high like an eagle because that is what you are meant to be. Be the brightest star in the universe full of darkness. Keep shinning!

Every time I asked this question to myself and I end up with nothing. It means I am not satisfied with myself. I am an introvert person and I just want to live my life in a dark that's what I only know about myself.

An endless battle between our own selves and we need to get reminded each time :)

Ay true! Once in a while, we will feel this kind of drama, but we don't need to be frightened. I take it as a challenge so I can be better and prove to my inner self that I can do it.

Yiehhh, bat kinikilig talaga akk pag may nag lilink ng article ko sa gawang article ng ibang user dito yiehhh huehue. I feel like my article actually has a sense UwU.

But you know, ang easy lang talaga nyang sabihin at ipayo sa iba pero bat napakahirap gawin? Seriously lang talaga. That's really my problem you see. I lack of confidence, can't just really erase that on my system kahit pa anong gawin kong pagpapakalma sa sarili ko. Kasi pag nasa harap kana ng tao jan, jan aatake ang insecurities mo. Biglang bababa ang confidence level mo from 15 to 0. Hagya ka nalang ngang kumakapit tapos lalo pang bumaba. Oh Gosh 🤕
