Life has always been about reinventing yourself...and love. But for now I am going to focus on reinvention. Trying to find out how to become a better, more happy version of myself is the way I want to change. Within my first week of trying to become the woman I want to be, I have already been struggling and feeling uncomfortable- with myself and others. Trying to change it is really hard and involves loving myself first. That is how to be happy; because you will be spending your whole life with yourself, it is worth it to get to really know who you are. But how? I have talked to a few people about how to become your own best friend and they said it is about loving yourself. As we all may probably know, we are our own harshest critics. In order to help combat this, we can start by giving ourselves and others one compliment per day. You can also read self help books (if any of you know some really good ones I would love to read them), and say one thing you are proud of- whether it be acing a test, spending time with family, or becoming the best version of yourself. That is, what I think, the first step to reinvention. Because I just learned about this yesterday, I haven't really had any time to put these practices into place, but next week I will share my progress on that with you.
Random thought- would you regret not having a date to your last formal dance when almost everyone else has a date? Would that make you feel insecure or uncomfortable or strong and independent. I am not sure how I feel about this so I would love to know your thoughts on this as well. The dance is next week and I am debating if I should ask anyone because that means I have to be with them the whole time and cant actually dance (I love to dance). But will I feel left out if I do not bring someone? I really have no idea what to do so knowing what you would do in this type of situation would really be helpful!
Thank you so much for reading!
