Individuality (A Post to Boost Self Esteem)

Your unique, just like everybody else.

As witty as that quote may be, it’s entirely true. Every one is unique but in their very own special way. The world really would be a pretty boring place if that wasn’t the matter.

There’s nothing wrong with the person you are. As there is nothing wrong with what you like, what opinions you share, what you look like or who your idols are.

“Don’t lose who you are in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay…
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart.
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising,
Just be true to who you are.” – Jessy J, Who You Are

Your individuality is yours to keep, it makes you stand out from the crowd. Those who cover it are often just cowards. Don’t be a coward. Be proud of who you are.

“People are all the same
And we only get judged by what we do
Personality reflects name
And if I’m ugly then so are you” – Sugababes, Ugly

You won’t get far in life by following the crowd. It’s safe for any one who doesn’t like attention, sure. But it’s not you. Why should any one be afraid to express their individuality, afraid to stand true to themselves and their opinions or even bullied because they do?

“I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down
So don’t you bring me down today” – Christina Aguilera, Beautiful

Stay true to yourself, don’t stoop to the level of a coward. Don’t give in to bullying.

“Everybody knows
It sucks to grow up
And everybody does
It’s so weird to be back here.
Let me tell you what
The years go on and
We’re still fighting it, we’re still fighting it
You’ll try and try and one day you’ll fly” – Ben Folds, Still Fighting It.

This post has been written because of the Face Your Dragons challenge. For years I have battled with self-esteem in the form of being ‘too different’. As emotional as this post has been for me to write, I’m glad I’ve done so. Not only have I faced my dragon, I hope to have also help others know that it’s okay to be who you are, don’t change for any one.
