Be “you” for all your infinite worth, because you were not created to be an extension of anyone else’s beliefs or expectations! … Some people don’t give a damn what anyone else has to say about them or how they are perceived and everyone accepts those people for who they are in that. Meanwhile for people who are held to standards such as the perceived “Good Christian Woman”and told since childhood that more was expected of them from various sources, is there any way for them to be truly authentic to themselves without feeling the need to conform to the expectations of others!
Hindsight really is a wonderful thing and if I have learnt anything from it, it is that I wish someone had told me some of the things I wish I could tell my younger self.
Especially the fact that we are all unique with personal traits, strengths and weaknesses that make up the people we become through the experiences of our lives … These are a few of my thoughts, in hindsight, on embracing that uniqueness as a strength rather than a weakness and looking at life from a different perspective.
