Everyone has a different life and is at different places in the world. There isn’t anyone in this world that will look the same as ourselves. You’ll have different personalities, different ways of talking, and different ways of doing things. However, there are probably plenty of people who, in this world, don’t like who you are as a person. It could be for any reason. Like if you do something different, if you acted a certain way, or if you tried to make a new way of doing something. And we’re all very afraid of having someone disliking you because it brings you down and makes you feel like you’re not good enough for everyone. So we end up just being completely different from what we are so that we make sure that everyone likes you. But this is just hurting us, forcing ourselves to be someone who we don’t feel comfortable being to please others. We can fix this by knowing ourselves to improve our life overall.
Over the past years, we change ourselves every year and we can also see other people following the same path. Following the same path of changing ourselves to show everyone else. They are trying out new things to improve their impression of others. Don’t get me wrong, this could be a good thing for us if you believe that, that one trait of yours is pulling you down, but most of the time we want to change ourselves so that we can make sure that we aren’t different. Being different nowadays is being put as being weird. If something that you do is something new and different to someone else, they might think it’s weird. For example, everyone has their way of playing a sport. No one will have the same form and same play style. If someone’s playstyle is good for them but is bad to someone else, then it might be weird for them. It’s all about knowing what it is and knowing how it is. That’s why people in the back of their minds tell themselves, “I’m afraid of being different”, or “If I start doing this differently I’ll be outcasted as weird”, etc. Everyone has that little thought and that’s why people are so afraid of themselves to do something that they might enjoy or something that they might love about themselves.
The reason why people are so afraid of themselves is that they feel like they’ll be judged by others. Others judging others plays a crucial role in why people don’t break out of their shells. They feel too obligated to try to be different and to try something new that no one has ever done. People should stop judging others and focus on what they should improve themselves on before trying to “improve” other people first. That is the reason why you should surround yourself with people who have the same interests as you. It isn’t hard to find someone who has the same interests as you. Your friends are a good example of this. Your friends picked you because they also like your ideas and your traits of yours. Friends will be there when you need support on trying something new because if it branches off of what you all like, then it’ll make it easy for them to join you in the journey too. And if it is hard to stop being the same as everyone else, then you can ask your friends if they have any advice for you to transition.
Transitioning can be difficult because some can be hard and some can be easy. You can’t know unless you try it and see how long it takes to achieve it. If it takes too long or takes too much work put in then you can try something else then. There are many things that you can try since this world is filled with exploration for everyone.
Self-improvement will not be just from doing something new, but it’s believing in yourself that you can do it and push through the hard times. It’s not because you want to do it because you’re peers are going to judge you. However, it’s just so that you can do it for yourself. It’s not about transitioning from one thing to another, but it’s about the little steps you take to transition yourself to what you know is right for you. You must make your own decisions so that you can make the route of your life the right trail. Remember, Friends are there when you need assistance during this trial, they’ll be there for you if you need it. Just make sure that you improve yourself in the future with whatever you’re doing with your life. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as you know it’s improving who you are as a person and your life.
