The perfect way to a perfect you

We all compare ourselves to others and think, “Why can’t I look like that?” or “Why can’t I be happy like her?”. We are all guilty of it. I’m here to tell you a 5 steps on how to become the perfect version of yourself and to put aside these negative thoughts.


1. Focus on what you love

We all have our own passions, dreams, and hopes. Pinpoint what you love and why. This will allow you to focus on your own talents, instead of others. Whether that be a hobby, a job, or just reading a good book, you have your own superpowers that differentiates you from others. Take advantage of it.

2.  Make sure to get down time

Whether that be by watching tv, reading, sleeping, listening to music, etc, make sure to get the time that you and yourself deserve. It is important to hangout and spend time with others too but, in order to feel comfortable and happy with yourself you need prioritize time with yourself.

3. Stop focusing on others

Of course you can follow other people and like their photos on instagram, but don’t let their pages make you feel insecure with yourself. Use your social media platforms to hold your own photos, memories, and moments.  If instagram is making you feel upset about yourself and think negative thoughts, delete the app for a while.

Don’t let others beauty lessen your own. Everyone is their own masterpiece in a museum of art.

4. Do what you want to do, not what you think you SHOULD do

Whenever you are facing a decision and the word, “should” comes up, turn away. You are responsible for your own health and happiness and you need to do what is best for YOU. Even if you feel like you are missing out, or that someone will be upset with you, stay true to yourself.

5. Love yourself before anyone else

We cannot expect someone to love us if we do not love ourselves. We have to know that the only person there to take care of us when we wake up randomly at 2 a.m, is us. We have to love our personality. We have to love our smiles. We have to recognize our weaknesses as well as our strengths. We have to love ourselves through our mistakes and any regrets we may have. We have to believe in ourselves. And most importantly, we have to love ourselves.
