Know your worth
People, we can never stop them from criticising and judging. Let it be strangers, acquaintances, friends, frenemies and even family.
I can’t measure the level of severity I’ve been judged, but I’m very sure it will never go away no matter what I’ll do.
‘Da, sexy jua..
I covered myself up
‘Da, nda ngam usul mu catu
’ (does’t suit you)
I change my style
‘Da, over jua
’ (being too much)
Eventually, it got me thinking, who am I trying to please?
The sad truth is that I am trying to please others. For better or worse, fulfilling the expectations of others is now a prerequisite for my own 'happiness'.
This is the toxic cycle that we all are facing. Not knowing our self-worth that we let others to be the jury to our own identity.
We all have been there. Maturity will give you the strength to place your self worth and happiness above and beyond others.
As cliché as it sounds, just be yourself.
Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, and magical person that you are.
