The word unique which is used to say that something or someone is unlike anything or anyone else, commonly used to describe something very Special, rare and unusual.
Sadly, a good number of us have lost our sense of uniqueness while comparing ourselves as well as our lives with the lives of others, especially in this generation where social media has become a platform for people to seem all perfect. This makes us forget that no one is perfect and perfection is nothing but a mirage created from expectation.
We see what people want us to see. No one is posting their failures and shortcomings but here we are sitting, going through Instagram and questioning our uniqueness and self-worth, why?
We pay so much attention to the life and opinion of others that we forget how to live ours. Now Listen!!!
You are unique in every way.
Just like every organ of your body which makes up your whole system are all serving its various functions and can barely do without the other, also, just like every fibre of your bone that joins together consisting of your whole body makeup, that’s exactly how important, special and unique you are in this world filled with a whole bunch of carbon copies.
Majority of people these days have forgotten who they are while trying so hard to become who they are not. I guess you probably don’t know that the beauty of being you lies in the fact that you excel at it effortlessly.
We are in a generation filled with lost beings living the lives of others for acceptance and to belong. Therefore giving room for their every move to be dictated by someone else’s opinion while being enveloped with thoughts of;
What would they think? What would they say? Wouldn’t I be odd? No one is doing it? Am I good enough?
Now pause for a second there and listen to yourself. No, better put, listen to the sound of the voices of people helping you live your life. Listen to the sound of people dictating and influencing your every move. Listen to the sound of people putting doubts in you, instilling low self-esteem and making you not try because not for once have you believed in what you are or who you are. Not for once have you stood your ground to listen to your voice.
we’ve paid so much attention to these words of what would people say and what would they think of me without even considering what you think and feel about yourselves and this has made a good number of us lose out in a whole lot of things in life without even realizing it.
We’ve lost out on so much listening to the voices of others that we’ve lost ours. Where is Your voice? Where are your opinions? Why do you try to fit in when you were born to stand out?
You’ve got to realize that you matter too. Forget what people think, forget what people say and ask yourself what you think or what you want to do, then Find Your voice, Find yourself, Do You, Be You and Stand Out! because you are all shades of Uniqueness!
