You are you, and what a beautiful #creationyou are! What a #magnificent #mindyou've been given, and what #awesomeabilities to think and reach conclusions and define yourself and your own life. You are you, and no one else can be you. No one else can tell you what or how you should be. No one else can tell you how to #actor how to #treatother people or how to #liveyour life.
That is, unless you let them do so.
You can allow other #peopleto #controlyou if you wish to allow such a thing. And there are plenty of insecure people out there who would love to take you up on that possibility if you show it to them by the way you act, the things you say. But once you allow someone else to have that much #influenceover you, you no longer are living as your #authenticself, but as something else, something less beautiful because the beauty has been stifled by the controlling tendencies of some other person.
We often see people try to control other people, to intimidate them and control them and victimize them. The results of such actions never are very pretty. Let your #beautyand your self #shinebrightly, and you'll be a #beaconthat other people can look to, an inspiration to anyone who needs a role #modelas #inspirationto help them to #shinebrightly themselves. Don't allow others to put out your #beautiful #flame--define your self and define your life, and live it as fully as you possibly can.
For further thought:
Coming to #appreciateyour #worthcan, in some cases, dramatically #improveyour circumstances by changing the #choicesyou make and the actions you take. And as you begin to treat yourself with more respect, other people begin to do the same, since we subconsciously "train" others how to treat us through #messageswe send through #body #language, tone of voice, and other subtle cues and behaviors. Discovering your innate worth and living from that place allows you to make more #constructive choices--to choose the #higher #roadsof life.
