How can you as a person write so religiously about something but not really practise it?
I have a self-love series on my blog because I am a huge advocate for it and I believe it is something that one will never stop working on because self-love comes with choosing yourself. How can you love yourself if you don’t choose yourself?
I wont lie I am not the type of writer to write just for the sake of writing. I have to stay true and love my work because that is when I am my truest and I am myself. The beautiful part I have discovered about blogging is that there is no manual on how to do it and how to make the perfect blog posts. Instead I need to experience something and truly feel it. Because I am truly growing into this identity of becoming a writer.
I have also learnt the art of not pressurising myself. As a university student, I am trying to navigate my academics, future side hustle opportunities, learning, finding myself and also trying to navigate such a saturated world like the one we live in. I have learnt that it is not about how I look. Its about my intent, value, passion and love. Sounds easy right? But at times it seems like the most difficult thing ever because I hate forcing myself to do things I don’t want to just because I see the world going in a certain direction and now I need to take that route.
My outlook is simple, there is room and space for all of us to prosper. Let me repeat it again: “There is room and space for all of us to prosper” and that is my tagline, motto, mantra, whatever it is called. Because I believe we are truly living In the best times as content creators and all our niches are still existing and I also believe there will be more new niches to discover hence I realised that patience is very important in this journey.
In this journey of loving myself , I have learnt to say no. Yes, saying no is not easy but its worth it and rewarding because you end up realising that you have gained more discipline and self respect for yourself. Friends, family and people around you don’t ever need to understand you, choosing yourself is okay. You don’t even have to explain why. If people don’t accept your nos or they act funny towards you then you already can see and know who will support you and be there for you.
In the journey of self love, you will confuse many, surprise many and even make your close friends feel uncomfortable but do it anyway because you are valid and you matter. You come first in everything. The right ones will appreciate you and respect you for choosing yourself.
So to my 20 year old creators out there, learning the ropes and tides of this blogging content creation world, hang in there and stick to your dream because I am definitely sticking to mine.Study hard and study excellent because that degree will surely come in handy, it must.
So from me to you: Thank you for reading my post
