Hey Ladies!! I just finished listening to “Reflection” by Fifth Harmony, and was inspired to write this blog today. If you ever get a chance, you should really listen to it, for it sets a great message. It explains how woman should be able to give themselves compliments and be proud about it.
It’s wierd how giving yourself compliments always tends to go with self-centerdness, or cockiness…but why can’t we call ourselves beautiful, sexy, amazing, fresh, dedicated, etc? Isn’t it all true anyway?
And the funny thing is that we (or most of us ladies) all hope that the the world/men would call us all of these wonderful things, we are to shy to call ourselves.
That is why I give you 7 reasons why you should start calling yourself and giving yourself compliments, you wish others would give you!
1. WHY WAIT FOR OUTSIDE VALIDATION WHEN ALL YOU NEED IS INNER ACCEPTANCE?!
So many of us would die for a man to look at us and call us beautiful, to be impressed with our abilities and explain how mesmerized he is by us…which is fine, until we rely on a man’s validation to make us feel beautiful and amazing. You should never rely on or wait for the world/men to boost up your self-esteem, and/or make us feel important. You are already beautiful, amazing, important, and worth it all…so stop waiting for the world to tell you that, and start believing this all to be true right now!
Besides, (sadly) the world will rip you apart, make you feel worthless, and try to lower your importance, before it will ever try and make you feel accepted and loved…so you are better off loving and complimenting yourself now!!
2. YOU DESERVE THE BEST COMPLIMENTS, EVEN FROM YOURSELF!
Yes, all you deserve is compliment after compliment, my friend! For you are too beautiful, dedicated, amazing, and independent to walk by without saying you are fabulous….that’s why every time you see your reflection or even think of yourself, you should give yourself a compliment!! You are too wonderful to ever thing you are anything else but that. So give yourself compliments, and if you think you are starting to run out of compliments, just stare at yourself in the mirror and smile, for that’s all the world wants to do anyway every time we see you:)
3. GIVING YOURSELF COMPLIMENTS ISN’T AT ALL COCKY, FOR IT IS THE PURE TRUTH!
If people call you self-centered for giving yourself compliments, get up, and leave my friend…for you deserve better kind of people in your life.
Besides, who cares what others think? You know, and understand how awesome you are, and are too impressed to keep it all inside. Keep giving yourself compliments, and never hesitate!…for every compliment you give yourself is the truth! Every positive feature about you deserves a compliment, and you are 100% made up of all of these compliments…so stop lying to the world acting shy and insecure…start speaking the truth and give yourself compliments!
4. YOU SHOULD BE JUST AS IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF AS YOU WISH A MAN WAS!
Just like we want a man to instantly and romantically fall in love with us, we should also want to fall in love with ourselves. Now this does not mean giving ourselves hugs, it means self-care, and treating yourself the way you would want a man to. That means no disrespect, no mean words, none of that! If we would never, and I mean NEVER tolerate it from a man, we should never tolerate it from ourselves!
If you are not madly in love with yourself, and put yourself first, people will find ways to take advantage of you, and manipulate you, for they know you depend on them for boosting up your self-esteem…so save yourself from that situation, love yourself, and find out exactly what you want, so no one can hurt you.
5. IF YOU DON’T SEE THE AWESOME IN YOU, HOW CAN ANYONE ELSE?!
Have you ever gotten a compliment like “You are beautiful”? (if you never have, well you are gorgeous my love!) Anyway, didn’t that compliment feel good? Yeah, I bet it did. All compliments feel good, especially because when we receive them we believe them to be true.
But then something happens…you look at the mirror and start picking out everything bad about yourself, and then you forget about the compliment and call yourself ugly…(I’ve done this, have you)…most of us have, but why? How can we receive such a wonderful compliment, then replace it with such a negative lie…??
We do that because we don’t truly believe the compliment truly applies to us, so we will quickly replace it with what we believe to be true. When we look in the mirror, we don’t see the whole beautiful person, we just see the little flaws. But if we learned to truly believe that we are beautiful, and awesome, just the way we are…then we could start to take in compliments and stop replacing them.
So believe, my dear, that you ARE TRULY BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT!!!
6. FINALLY WHY NOT?!
Finally why not give yourself compliments? You are free individual, and you can do whatever the heck you want to do! So go out there and start freely giving yourself compliments, and start believing them!! And while you go out and do that, go get other girls on board, and inspire them to give themselves compliments too!
If you get anything out of this blog, I hope you realize that you can and should give yourself compliments everyday, and be proud of who you are!…and never, and mean NEVER forget how much you are worth, and how important you are!! For you are worth more then you could ever imagine!!
