I’m learning to become the best version of myself

I’m learning to accept that everyone makes mistakes and I’m learning to stop punishing myself for doing things wrong. I guess nobody is perfect. I’m learning that mistakes serve as a learning method. I’m slowly learning to encourage myself to take advantages of those mistakes, use them to gain strength and knowledge.

I’m learning to take care of mental health. I’m slowly learning that sometimes it’s okay to not be okay. I’m slowly learning that my thoughts matter. I’m learning that it’s okay to ask for help.  I’m slowly learning to love myself and those around me. I’m reaching out to my friends a lot more. I’m using ‘the words ‘I love you’ and ‘I miss you’ everyday, because the people I love deserve to feel valued.

I’m learning to love myself the way I love others. I’m slowly learning to stop comparing myself to others that are my age. I’m beginning to surround myself with people who encourage me, those who motivate me. Those that are happy for me, those who celebrate with me and those that are there to bring me back up when I stop believing in myself.

I’m learning to accept criticism. I’m slowly learning to turn every negative into a positive. I’m learning that change is a good thing. Instead of running away from it, I’m slowly learning to accept and embrace it. I’m learning that whatever I want in life, I have to push myself out of my comfort zone and things have to change. And that’s okay.

I’m slowly learning to voice my opinion, instead of staying silent. And to take a stand for what I believe in. I’m slowly learning to constantly challenge myself, to learn and grow every single day. I’m constantly learning not just from books, lectures and the internet. But, from people, from observing and from everyday ordinary life.

I’m slowly learning that it’s better to be kind, the basic virtues of humanity. I’m slowly learning to be honest, and not fake smiles when I’m not happy. I’m slowly learning that it’s okay to show my genuine and true feelings. I’m learning to pay attention. I’m learning to be self-aware and I’m trying my best to understand those around me because, only then I will gain a better understanding of myself.

I’m learning and becoming the best version of myself. I’m slowly learning to become confident in myself. I’m learning to love and appreciate the tiny things in life. Instead of counting down to Friday, I’m learning to enjoy my weekdays. I’m learning to get excited over the little things in life. I’m learning to celebrate every little success. But, most of all, I’m learning to become a happy version of myself.
