Welcome to That Weird Girl Official
Hello my lovelies!
Something about this month was upsetting me even though I have always been cheery about October, being it my birthday month and autumn season. Nonetheless, the more I tried to calm myself the more I felt flustered. I couldn’t have even thought of writing a motivational post because I didn’t even feel an ounce of it in me. Until recently when I was talking to my brother Ayush and he tried to tell me how amazing I was and that I had no right of being harsh on myself and should feel proud of how far I’ve come, that it shouldn’t really bother what someone else thought if I knew what I was doing was right in my head. Frankly, I was moved.
For a long time, I have hated the way I looked because I couldn’t really imagine myself looking beautiful with a face like this and people continuously pointing how skinny I am didn’t help my case a bit. I don’t really know if I have completely moved on and accepted myself wholly and truly but I do know that their opinion about me shouldn’t be getting under my skin. It’s just not about them. It’s not about what they feel about me, what they think I look like, more or less because it is not in my hand to change what someone else thinks and it wouldn’t do me any good to cry myself a pool if they didn’t find me good enough. It’s about me. It’s about what I feel about myself, what I believe in and what I want to do.
There have been different meanings of confidence and different people have different ways of showing it. Ayush wanted me to feel great about myself and so he took monochrome photos that he felt came out more naturally than any other. He said the point of it was that I felt poised having my face shot up close and not shy away from it, because I’m not comfortable too close to the camera. I did feel shite when he started clicking but he eased me with silly faces, horrible jokes and mocking my poses. When I looked at the photos, I actually liked how I looked directly in the lens. I liked my eyes and I liked how confident I looked.
I guess what I wanted to say with this post was that somebody else’s opinion shouldn’t affect you in a way that you grow away from yourself and wish you were different. What they say shouldn’t make you feel shite about yourself and about your body. Their thoughts shouldn’t impinge on you in a way that you choose something against your wish or hurt yourself in any way at all. You are special. You are more than what they think. You are a universe in your own. Don’t let their thought change yours.
Tell me something nice that happened with you or something that makes you feel good in the comment below because I’d love to read!
