Prove Yourself To Yourself Not To Others

On the outside looking in most people see only a bubbly, extroverted, and smiling face. Most of the time that theory holds true, however humans in general are such complex beings. Sometimes, it’s difficult to truly know what someone is thinking or feeling.  Some people hide behind smiles well. For the longest time, I felt encrusted in my shell. I was just waiting to peak out and be myself. I once feigned happiness. It is something that is built after years of trial and error. I no longer waste my time on things that do not bring me joy.

When you reach a point of satisfaction with who you are as a person, everything in your life feels better. You find happiness in the simplest things like talking to your best friend, drinking tea with your parents, or going to work every day. Being happy is something personal that isn’t easily understood by others. When you feel this way, others want to be around you. We love happy people because we all want that in life. I regret the days I wasted on nonsense. I’ve learned that the less you care about what others think of you, the happier you will be. What is one thing that makes you happy?

Wherever you are in the world stay happy, healthy, and safe! ❤️
