“People should never apologize for who they are, and they should never hide who they are. Hating yourself is so 2011.”- Ross Mathews
Hey everyone! Today’s blog post is going to start with an apology. I had been so good about posting everyday like I had intended for a very long time. Recently if you all have stayed following me on this journey I had missed 2 days (one was yesterday). I have had some circumstances come in my life that I had to deal with. I just wanted to say I’m sorry for not sticking to what I had originally intended. Believe it or not it can be very challenging trying to write a blog while you have so much going on in your life.
I feel bad about missing those few days, but through writing this blog I have come to terms I’m not perfect and that’s okay. I want to let you all know I am still going to try to write every single day, but since it is a full year I’m doing this for there might be some times when too much is going on and I can’t write. As much as I hate that I think it’s much better than writing a blog post and half- assing it. That’s not fair to anyone.
I just wanted to say this to you all so you will understand if I might miss a day here and there. However; I’m still going to try with all my power to not do that. But if it does happen I’m not going to hate on myself for it.
With all of this being said I wanted to write about something that kind of contradicts what I just said and that is never be sorry for who you are. Which is different than making a mistake and apologizing like I did up above. What you shouldn’t be sorry for is being yourself.
We all have faults. We all have problems. We all have different tastes. We all have different passions. We all see the world differently. We are all unique.
Now I can say all of this without a doubt. I genuinely believe we are all different and we shouldn’t be sorry because of our differences. We should embrace them.
Many times in my past though I would apologize to others for who I was. I’d feel ashamed of the person I was and didn’t want to embrace the things that made me stand out. Now I embrace these things to the fullest. I know darn well I’m not like anyone else and I’m not going to apologize for what makes me, me. And neither should you!
My challenge for all of you today is to go out and not apologize for who you are. No matter how incredibly weird you are. If you love beanie babies share that with the world! Don’t be afraid to stand out from everyone else. That’s what you were born to do. We were all born to go on different paths. So embrace it lovelies..never apologize!
