I was one of those girls in high school that enjoyed pleasing the people around me. New friends, wrong friends, right friends. Any friends really. I just wanted to be accepted by anyone and everyone – no matter who and what the cost. It was only after a school camp that I realized how much time I had wasted trying to people please, and the endless striving to get everyone in my court became the one thing that set me back to a place exactly where God wanted me.
Embracing your inner self can be really rough sometimes, right? Society has perpetuated this idea that celebrities are flawless and more important than those less recognised worldwide.
Insecurities have then taken many of us captive and mostly because the use of social media have really heightened and almost everybody is using either facebook, Instagram, twitter etc… It created mirrors where we look at ourselves and spot out our “flaws” because someone well known doesn’t have that particular trait.
