Have you ever have this thought "I wish I was somebody else." Many times at the back of our mind, we think and believe that someone or rather, most people are far superior to us. - When in actual fact, most people are thinking the same thing and they are more scared than us.
Isn't it laughable? We look at other people, envy them for looking so outrageously perfect and wish we are them, while they look at us and think of the exact same thing. We are insecure of other people who themselves are insecure of us. We suffer from low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence and lose hope in self improvement because we are cloak in quiet desperation.
That's why it's imperative that we always strive for self improvement. By making ourselves better people, we can then inspire other people, and then the rest of the world will follow.
Stop thinking of yourselves as second-rate beings. Forget the repetitive thought of "If only I was richer, if only I was thinner" and so on. Accepting your true self is the first step to self improvement. We need to stop comparing ourselves to others. Not only is that counter productive to your self development, it also make you feeling far less happy in your life.
We all have our insecurities. No one is perfect. We always wish we had better things, better features, better body parts, etc. But life needs not to be perfect for people to be happy about themselves. Self improvement and loving yourself is not a matter letting the whole world know that you are perfect and you are the best. It's the virtue of acceptance and contentment. Only when we begin to make an effort to improve ourselves, we then begin to feel contented and happy.
