I see so many people often imitate others. Everything from altering their physical features to copying their every move. I often wonder what is the issue. Is it for attention or popularity? The answer is yes and only because there is a lack of self esteem and or self confidence. See, if an person doesn’t feel that they are pretty enough, good enough or have enough going for themselves, then they will adopt the identity of another person with the hopes of being recognized as one who looks, acts or sound like another that’s not them. All of which sounds so draining. I mean think about it, the price of being popular nowadays isn’t cheap. Plastic surgery is ranging in the $$$$. Hair and makeup that use be inexpensive are now rising like stocks, the price of clothes and accessories $$$.The physical upkeep is expensive not to mention the other luxuries like houses, cars and etc.
You’ll go broke trying to maintain a lifestyle that isn’t yours, it’s probably difficult maintaining the one you have now for yourself. Then you find yourself in debt all because of it. You might look good to you and people around you on the outside but the way you feel on the inside is nowhere near that. We love to compare ourselves to other people instead of being us. What’s wrong with being you? Is it the feeling of being rejected because of it. Rejection is apart of life and some of the most popular people has, is and will be rejected by people. Regardless of who you choose to be, there are people that are not going to like you but choose to not be liked because of who you are not someone you pretend to be. Do some searching within yourself to find out what is the issue.
If it’s anything physical, like weight, change your diet. Eliminate some foods and add healthier ones, watch your intake on how much you eat and exercise. You can accomplish it if you discipline yourself and work at it. If it’s any other physical feature, there are plenty of ways to do something about them without the cost of plastic surgery.
Besides, the way God created you was so satisfying to Him that He only made one like you!! And no one will ever be able to be you except for you and you will never be anybody else, no matter how hard you try. Sometimes how we view ourselves has given people permission to view us the same way, whether good or bad and you really can’t control how they view you but you can help them out. Deal with issues within so that the freedom from it radiates on the outside. Free yourself from your own negative opinions of yourself and what others may think. Make the decision to be the original that you were created to be. So go ahead and be free to love you, embrace you, strengthen you and be the best you that you can. Be you so much that it encourages others to be themselves. Be that match that sparks the fire in someone else’s life. After all what choice do you really have in being yourself, everyone else is taken!!!
