Every single day, you get a golden opportunity. You get a chance to be who you want to be. Be the version of yourself that you’re proud to be.
In a world where you are pushed to conform to social norms, it’s okay to be yourself. No one else has your ideas and experience. No one else lives life in your shoes and sees life through your lenses. You are truly unique.
You may face pressure that threatens your self-identity. You might be pressured to conform the standards of the people around you or just give in to lower expectations. You don’t have to give in.
Accept yourself. It’s okay to push yourself to be better and still be content with who you are. Being happy with yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.
