You know how people today love being their glory self. They love the fact that this “idea” of loving yourself & accepting you for you are sort of becoming popularized in the media.
“If they don’t accept you for who you are, LEAVE!!!!”
Honestly though, this is a great advice. Especially for those suffocating in a relationship or friendship that’s taking a toll on them. You got to leave when you’re depressed all the time.
There is nothing wrong with loving yourself, being comfortable in your skin, embracing your flaws and weirdness. Being confident, and all that stuff.
But the thing is, people always assumed that they are a good person. They don’t think about their flaws or what they could change about themselves to make them a better person/friend/girlfriend/boyfriend/mother/father etc., etc., you get my point.
They always think, “Aha! This person does not accept my habit of shitting in the living room! I will leave them! Fuck them! This is who I am! I am a woman who shits on her carpet! If they cant accept that, fuck them! Leave is what I’m gonna do!”
You see the problem now?
We are all encouraging each other to love ourselves a little bit more, but we forgot sometimes we can be a really ugly person. We cut queues, we throw our sandwich wrappers by the park bench, we sit at Starbucks even though we did not buy any drinks, we don’t stub out our cigarettes, we are rude, we are mean, we are selfish, we put ourselves first in every single situation, we do not care about how our act will affect the environment or people around us. We do not even think twice that these mindless act we are doing every day of our life is a bad thing – “It’s just me being myself & loving it!”
We are not exactly nice human beings.
Before you jump on the “Loving Myself” train, please, oh dear God, please reflect on your habits & attitude. You might not think it’s a big deal, but it really is. I despise inconsiderateness. Do not be inconsiderate you asshole.
Be yourself, but also improve on yourself, don’t just sit in your puddle of shit & feel that everyone should adapt & love your shit.
Be kinder, be considerate, be a fucking nice human.
