After setting up a Mental Health group and seeing other people’s situation throughout social media I’ve come to the realisation that nobody is perfect and that’s ok.
Every single person is different in so many ways and I think we are to focused on changing not only other people to suit our needs but we are so quick to change ourselves to please other people that we don’t even know.
Every day we see on the TV and in magazine of people who look almost flawless and we are made to believe that this is how we should be, this is how we should look and this is how we should act.
But in real life that is not how they are at all, their life isn’t the perfect dream and it has taken them hours of make up to just take that photo, I guarantee when you wake up next to them in the morning they don’t look like that.
Nobody is perfect in any way, even the most famous people in history have their flaws for instance did you know that these people suffered with Mental Health but still made history.
- Abraham Lincoln – Suffered with Anxiety and Depression
- Charles Darwin – Suffered from Panic Attacks and Agroaphobia
- Charles Dickens – Suffered Severe Depression and Bipolar
- Beethoven – Suffered with Bipolar
- Winston Churchill – Suffered with Bipolar and Manic Depression
- Virginia Woolf – Suffered Depression and Psychosis
It’s not all about the mental side either, you should be comfortable in the skin that you’re in and if you’re not then change yourself but on your terms and the reason is you’re doing it for yourself.
I have put on a little bit of weight, since having kids and giving up sports im not up to 13 stone but im comfortable with the way I look and the size I am.
The way I see it is there is more of me to cuddle into.
Get to know and love yourselves, that is the way to true happiness, live and love life whatever you’re doing.
Weather it’s watching your kids grow, building a successful career, singing or even just enjoying going out and laughing with friends.
For all we know we only get one life so why not fill it with things like love, excitement, helping people and trying new things.
Except who you are and the emotions you have because nobody is better than you are, you just need to figure that out.
