What are the words we use to define ourselves? What image of ourselves do we have? Is it the same as others see us or is it completely different? And if it is different how different is it? Does making any change in the definition make any difference to our lives?
Well, here is a video which explains the same to you, have a look at this beautiful video and we continue below :
Now, let’s ask you this:
How do you describe yourself?
What are the words you use to define yourself?
Fat? Ugly? Person having a crooked tooth, maybe frizzly hair or darker complexion – what are these words that you use to define yourself when someone asks about you. How exactly would you define yourself. Although I am being a little dramatic with the use of stronger words, would you use more neutral words. I mean how do you define yourself, what characteristics would you define if someone wants to make a portrait of you?
If you watched the video above, you realize that most people define themselves a lot worse than the others do. In other words, the others see a lot more beauty in you than you do yourself? Now, why is that? Aren’t you the person who knows yourself the best? Why do you want to describe yourself in a much more modest way as compared to someone else describing you? Why do you want to use more neutral words? Is it the idea of modesty? Is it the social protocol that you don’t talk good about yourself? What is it?
What if you define yourself like this?
What if you use completely different words to define yourself? What if you stood in front of the mirror and appreciated your features a bit. What if you acknowledged the beautiful hair, the uniqueness in the shape of your nose or the color of your eyes or the way you smile? What if you told yourself how beautiful you are. What if you chose these metaphors to define yourself?
Well, you might think – “What would other people think of me? They won’t think I am modest, they would think I am pompous!”. Well! Let them! Let them think whatever they want. We are not talking about them! We are talking about you today and lets stick to that. We can worry about them tomorrow!
How do you feel when you use these words about yourself? Don’t you feel special? Don’t you feel beautiful? Don’t you feel that you are unique?
Truth is that all of us are blessed with our own beauties and our own uniqueness in life. Sometimes we don’t tend to give it the appreciation or acknowledgement it deserves. Try doing that and you may open yourselves to a completely new world! Stand in front of the mirror now and see how beautiful you actually are. All the parts in your face is exclusively made for you and you are one rare piece of art to be loved and appreciated. Take time, observe all your features carefully and you will see a more beautiful person in the mirror, the one who will make you happy.
