What the f*ck are folks trying to fit into anyways? Who’s specific approval are you looking for? Society is not a person, it’s doesn’t have a personality, and it can’t make judgements.
From your genetic code up to your favourite flavour of ice cream, you are different. Those distinctions about you are what make you who you are. I’m not going to call you special, cause that’s corny. But I can say you have the ability to take your unique attributes & celebrate them in a way that will encourage other people to the party.
People are attracted to confidence, that’s it. Confidence comes from a comfort in your own skin. I know plenty of folks who’ve been given a genetic makeup that is very pleasing to the eye, and even they have insecurities they battle on daily basis.
Pay attention to the people you keep around you. They may attempt to project their insecurities on you, so they don’t feel like the only ones.
I had dudes in my circle who only functioned on some ego trip, telling me I shouldn’t be too ‘available’ to fans and I need some mystique on my brand. For a long second I believed them, then common sense gave me a roundhouse kick to the nose, & reminded that the folks who take the time to check out my work mean a hell of a lot more than the dudes looking to capitalize of it.
Be yourself man, believe in yourself as well. Confidence isn’t a light switch, it’s a foundation you build. Work hard at something & take pride in the accomplishments. Don’t act like your better than anyone & don’t act like anyone is better than you.
Relying on people & possessions to improve how how you feel about yourself is fickle. It’ll last only as long as the things you’ve acquired stay validating, which won’t be long. Focus on the inside & develop your qualities that no one take from you.
For me, those are my ability to love & tell the truth, what’s yours?
“The largest public protests, rallies and demonstrations that the world has ever seen are happening right now - with almost no media coverage. Not only is … there a blackout on these events in the media, but YouTube is frequently removing footage of these mass rallies and events when requested to do so by governments: ‘Google, the owner of YouTube, has complied with the majority of requests from governments, particularly in the United States and the UK, not only to remove YouTube videos, but also specific web search terms and thousands of “data requests”.”
