I must be honest, I love my outfit, but I don’t like these pictures. They don’t show the green of my pants as I’d like, or the navy of my top to it’s full potential, primarily due to the natural lighting and angle from which the photos were shot. Nonetheless, my friend behind the camera thought the pictures were coming out perfectly, otherwise she’d have said something. This got me to thinking about how people view us and how we view ourselves.
“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”- Steve Jobs
Sometimes my friends see positive things in me that I just don’t see in myself, which can be very uplifting. However, if I don’t manage to view myself as they see me in those moments, my self-view can remain negative. At the end of the day, I’ve come to realize that what really matters is what we think of ourselves, what things we say to ourselves, what we see in ourselves. Don’t get drowned out by the thoughts, views, and opinions, others have of you, good or bad, and take time each day to ensure that how we view ourselves each day is solid, progressive, and positive my dears!
