I Don’t Need to Impress Anyone

I’m at a point in my life where I don’t need to impress anyone anymore. 
I am who I am without caring what others think of me.

I don’t need costumes, I don’t need to trick anyone or pretend.
Because I can be who I really am.

I don’t need to laugh and make people believe I never cry. 
I don’t always need to be strong or always be pleasant.

I don’t need to be the same as anyone, and, above all, I accept myself as I am.
With my virtues, but also with my shortcomings.

Because I cannot be perfect, but I’m always me.

I accept and love who I am and who I can be.

We do not exist to impress the world, but to be happy and to fulfill ourselves.

There are times when we want to grab all of the attention and be the life of the party. However, what really becomes important is for us to live our lives without always having to stand out to others.

Someone once said it’s nice to have money to buy things we want, but it’s nicer to have things that money can’t buy.

Some people spend life doing things they hate, to get money they don’t need, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.

We have already been disappointed many times, we have placed our trust in hundreds of situations and, well, the truth is that we have not always obtained is the result we expected. Thus, in the same way you stop expecting something from others, you begin to realize that you should stop worrying about what others expect of you.

Why don’t we need to impress anyone but ourselves?

The most unhappy people in this world are the people who care too much about what others think. We do not need to please anyone but ourselves. And this follows a simple rule that everyone can understand: if we try to impress at any cost, we are disguising ourselves. And if we disguise ourselves, our essence dies.

Each person is unique and exceptional. Nothing and no one deserves to hide their true self, emotions or thoughts. Now, it is true that everything has a limit, you cannot say or do whatever comes to mind and you have to be careful not to hurt others.

Be yourself and love yourself.

We were taught to be selfless, to put others’ needs before our own. Being selfish is a crime, a sin.

It is not wrong. But it is not entirely right either.

Here is a simple analogy. Your family shares a television. Everyone would watch it at the same time. Therefore, to be fair, one person gets to decide what the family watches for the day, and the next person will decide the next day. Would you give up your right to decide what to watch to make your family happier? 

There is no right or wrong answer. But remember: it’s okay to say no. It’s okay to root for yourself sometimes. Because how are you going to love someone if you don’t love yourself?

There is no one as important as yourself.

Yes, humans are social creatures. There is no denying that. But don’t get sucked into the never-ending loop of satisfying and impressing others and ignoring yourself. Gently, gradually, let yourself remind you that there is no one as important as yourself. You don’t need to impress anyone!
