14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. . .” -Psalm 139:14
“Don’t Take Yourself too Seriously. Learn to Laugh at Yourself, Everyone else is.”
Has anyone else other than me struggled being comfortable with yourself?
When I was younger, I was not comfortable with my weight, then my intelligence, then the size of my chin/head, the list could go on and on.
After years of living that way I’ve come to realize it is nothing but a waste of time and energy.
The other day I had someone ask me if I had a chew in (because my chin sticks out) – people thought I would get offended. The truth is – it didn’t offend me at all! I’m comfortable with myself and if someone doesn’t like me for who I am, I’m not going to waste my life getting wrapped up in worrying about their opinion of me.
The truth is that we’re never going to get another life, body, set of gifts, personality, etc.
Be grateful for who you are and what you have and you’ll find yourself having a lot more confidence.
I like what Abraham Lincoln said:
“I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside of me. I do the very best I know how; the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing it to the end.”
When You Learn to Be Comfortable with Yourself You’ll:
1.) Care a Lot Less of what People Think About You
2.) Be able to take a lot more risks
3.) Be able to accomplish a lot more
4.) Be able to help a lot more people
5.) Be a lot easier to be around – People will like you!
Hope this helps!
