How To Love Who You Are-Not Who You Are Not

Updated on November 14, 2010


Do you find yourself beating yourself up for things you haven’t or couldn’t achieve in life? Do you look at others and wish you could have their possessions or live their life style? You may feel you work hard and see nothing for it. Have you ever stopped beating yourself up long enough to look at the many blessings you own. You may have a beautiful healthy family; there are some people who may have money but no one to share those happy moments with.


Love who you are for something maybe as simple as having decent health. No one is perfect so we all suffer from ailments, but if you have overall good health be glad. You are more than likely a very knowledgeable person. Love who you are knowing there are lots of people who got to where they are by what someone gave them. Whatever you have earned it was with your own learned knowledge. You could be one not because of the economy but because of lack of knowledge cannot present themselves well enough to obtain suitable work. There are those people who work hard to get whatever they may have. Be proud of yourself for what you have, and be happy for others for whatever they may have. We don’t have to compare ourselves to others we all have our own special qualities, search for yours and expound on those.


There are so many people who are not content no matter what. You can have a decent job, suitable living conditions, loving family and clothes for many occasions, be content. Everyone can never have everything. Love who you are, you are special and needed by many. Who you are NOT is the person you are wanting to be. However, the person you are looking at, I am sure has their own issues to contend with. Simple lives are much less complicated. Everyday look at you and say one positive thing about yourself. I can start you off…

“I woke up today.” That should put the first smile of the day on your face. Then either you are going to work or have ones that depend on you at home. So you should also say, “I am needed.” Even if you run a household, hold your head high because that is indeed rewarding work. Love who you are, not who you are not because you are unique at being you and no one else can be you.


When you look at others and say you want what they have, you have no idea what trials they may deal with each day. Find ways to enhance or make yourself content and happy with what you have and who you are. There are always those out there with much less. Find your strengths and work on those, why not make the best of what you have. No one can solve all of their problems some things are always going to be and there is nothing that can be done about it. So why not let it be, don’t hold it against you. Remember the grass is not always greener on the other side. Love who you are, not who you are not. That person you want to be like; you have no idea who they are deep down. Be proud of you, you earned it, you deserve it.
