You Matter

Feeling like you don’t matter?

Like you’re drowning in your own thoughts?

Like life isn’t for you?

Like you’re worthless?

Like no one cares for you or loves you?

Suicidal thoughts are running around in your head non-stop?

Do you believe it’s the only answer and the only thing that’ll make you feel better?

I’m here to tell you that you matter; you matter because you are you, and you will bring new things to this world that no one would be able to bring

I’m here to tell you that no matter what your problems are at the time, I promise you they’ll go away

You’ll get through them

And in the future you’ll look back and see how far you’ve become, and be proud of yourself

Imagine if you end your life tonight

Think about how many people you’ll hurt

Maybe you think no one cares for you

But they do

Think about your family

Your dad who never cries, will start crying

Your mom in shock,

Your brother and sister asking what happened and will start crying harder than ever

Think about your friends

Your classmates

You think that they don’t care but they do

They probably will think of you every day and think about all the times they hurt you

Your neighbors, your cousins, your teachers

Everyone will miss you

Your life is precious and you’re taking it away in the blink of an eye

If you think no one cares

Think again

Everyone cares, I promise you, and they have always cares

If you still think no one cares well I’m here to tell you that I care

Your life is valuable so please, don’t end it,,,,,

Do Looks Really Matter??!!!

About 2 years ago, I read this article about a woman who got married to her boyfriend, after a fire burnt him and his house, but he survived with severe burns and his face got really missed up after the accident.
And I remember thinking, how? Why would she even marry him when she looks really pretty and he looks bad?
I also remember thinking that if it was me, I wouldn’t marry him.
And I never noticed how shallow my thinking was up until now,
What I see now is how great their love is, and how she understood that he is still the same person on the inside.
Why am I mentioning this story?
Because today’s question is,
Do looks really matter?
When we meet someone, the first thing that we notice about them is how they look and how they’re dressed. But we never really notice how bright their personality is, we never really give it that much thought, until later on that we realize that just because someone is good looking, doesn’t really mean that they have a good personality to go with it.
We all say that we want someone with a good personality and looks don’t matter, but is it really true? I’ll leave that to you to decide….
Personally, I do think that looks matter in this world, because everyone acts that way,
What if everyone started looking beyond physical appearance and started noticing what’s on the inside instead of what’s on the outside?
It sure would be a better world
Its human nature, it’s how humans are, but a bit by bit, it can definitely change.
For me, I would choose personality and day, any time, why you may ask?
Because someone might be pretty at the time,
But their beauty will fade overtime, still, their good heart and personality will never fade. A beautiful appearance would last a few decades, but a beautiful heart would last a lifetime.
And once you start seeing the inside beauty of someone, they’ll always be beautiful in your eyes, and no matter how much their looks change, your love for them will be the same.
And now I’d like to end it with a quote:
“No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart”

Don’t let them get to you

Never let other’s words, hate, and judgment get to you.

Don’t let what others think of you put you down

I know, I know, it’s easier said than done,

But think about it this way

The ship in the sea is surrounded by water, water is everywhere around it,

But it won’t sink unless there is a hole in it where water gets in

Same with you,

As long as you don’t let these words and judgments get to you

They’ll never put you down, you are never going to sink, and instead they’ll lift you up

Life is way too short, so stop worrying about what others think of you,

Because at the end of the day, you know who you are,

You are your unique self, and no one should tell you what to be, because it’s not up to them to decide, it’s up to you.

Accept yourself for who you are, because once you accept yourself, others will eventually start accepting you too.

I’m not saying that I was never bothered about what others thought of me,

but I never let it change me or put me down

(and just as a heads up, yes, I do get judged and made fun of a lot, but I honestly don’t care anymore)

Just today I had someone make fun of my accent and the way I speak,

you know what? It bothered me at first, but it didn’t get to me, you know why?

Because I didn’t let it

I knew myself too well to let Mr. Nobody affect me

Basically, what you need to do is love yourself and don’t be how others want you to be. Then you’ll find people who love you for you. That’s the thing for life: having the right people by your side

So if anyone ever makes fun of you, or judge you ever again, lift your head up high, smile in their faces, and show them that YOU DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT THEY THINK.

And now I would like to end it with a quote:

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss

be happy with who you are

Hello everyone, this is gonna be my first post! yaaaay

anyhow, in this post,I wanna talk to you about something that’s been bothering me for a long time

I have always hated myself, how I look, how socially awkward I can be, and how stupid I can get sometimes, all I was thinking about is what others thought of me

But no matter what I did, or at least tried to do, I didn’t feel better,I only felt worse when I failed in achieving a goal

I kept trying and trying, but no matter what I achieved,I wasn’t satisfied with it, instead I hated myself even more and blamed myself of not trying hard enough

But then, this story happened and made me take a deeper look at the actual meaning of happiness:

There was this girl I knew

Shes pretty, skinny, smart, athletic, good singer,and very social

I thought that shes probably the happiest person alive, because she had it all

But once we started talking she started saying how shes not that great and she doesn’t like who she is

And that made me understand that in reality,

Almost no one was happy with who they are

Everyone wants to be better to impress others

You know why is it that no one is satisfied ?

What I learned was that once you start trying to be happy, or satisfied with who you are, it wouldn’t matter what others think of you , and it wouldn’t matter if you fail achieving a goal, because you’ll be fine with or without it

I guess what I am trying to say is once you start treating yourself right and start loving who you are with all your mistakes and flaws, it wouldn’t matter if you don’t succeed, it wouldn’t matter what others think of you, and hell it wouldn’t matter if they judge you

But don’t get me wrong,

There is a difference between wanting to be a better person and being unsatisfied with yourself

wanting to be better is totally fine if you are happy with yourself, because if you fail, it wouldn’t get you to hate yourself, but it’ll make you stronger

and now I am going to end it with one of my fave quotes:

“love yourself first and everything else falls in line. you really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world” – Lucille Ball
