Being Comfortable in our own Skin

It seems like the hardest part about living in today’s society is fitting in and being “normal.” How do you define normal? Who is to say that because someone looks different or acts different is a bad thing? What ever happened to uniqueness being a good trait. Now with social media and celebrity culture engrained into everyone’s brain, we have lost track of being ourselves. We constantly want to imitate the people we see on tv because our culture has told us that that is what is acceptable. But just for a change of pace, why don’t we try being ourselves. Let’s allow our own personalities and all of the good and bad show and allow people to build opinions of us off of that and not a fake facade that we put on.

A great line that I heard recently came from a lady gaga song of all places, which was “god makes no mistakes, I’m on the right track, I was born this way.” I had to learn the hard way to be comfortable in my own skin, but I did. I did a post earlier about how myself and others are bullied because of who they are, but the message I am trying to convey today is that some people don’t get bullied but they feel that they need to look or act a certain way to fit in. That is simply not the case. I strongly believe that we are all put on this earth for a specific reason and if we continue to portray others and inhibit our true personalities from showing, then we do not serve the world any purpose. Another poem that I absolutely love and get inspired every time I hear it is entitled “Our Deepest Fear.” In it, it describes how as individuals we impact the world greatly. How we aren’t afraid of failing or being inadequate however it’s about how much true potential we really have.

It is true that we are all born with great potential and it is in our best interest not to shy away from that potential and instead tap into it. If we be true to ourselves and accept us for who we are then our possibilities are endless. Being like everyone else is easy, that is why so many people do it. Being yourself shows true character and is much more intriguing than the alternative.

Starting today, be yourself. See who you really are inside and then tap into your potential. Stop worrying about whether or not society accepts you. As long as you accept yourself than that is all that matters. Being Unique is far better than just being another face in the crowd.
