Embrace your quirks

November 23, 2016


I don’t know. Has anyone else felt as though you constantly live in someone else’s shadows? Like you are not your own ‘wonderful’ human being while you’re around them, but simply there for their own self rather than considering you?

There was a time when I lived every day of my life like this. Like I felt as though I wasn’t worthy of being my own human being because I figured everyone saw as little in me as I viewed in myself. Now, this isn’t going to be a soppy and depressing blog post, but rather something that triggered in my mind while I was awake in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The fact is, we all have are own space in this world whether we realise it or not. I’m a strong believer in the idea that we were all put on this earth for a reason, and we are all worthy of living. I find it upsetting how many people view themselves as worthless when they could simply be some of the most amazing people that this world has to offer.

I have recently had a glimpse of what it felt like to feel like I was living in someone else’s shadow again. Like they are in the centre of the universe while everyone else is kinda just… there. It’s upsetting, and it’s certainly toxic to my own mind to get feelings of such worthlessness.

I think the whole point of this blog post is to simply remind people to be kind and considerate of others. To acknowledge the fact that everyone is quirky in their own way and that no one should deserve to be mocked or ridiculed for how they are. Sure, there are some people that you simply aren’t going to like in this world, and there’s most probably a bunch of people who dislike me.

But the fact of the matter is that no one is worthless, and no one should be made to feel that way. We are all equals whether we like it or not. Whether that is based on race, gender, religion etc or even our personalities. Someone who makes crappy jokes and dances for no reason is just as worthy as someone who chooses a different sort of lifestyle.

Remind yourself, and especially remind others, that it’s each others quirkiness that make us human. We all seem to say this a lot, but it really would be boring if we were all the same. Embrace it and flaunt it. As much as I am trying to embrace my quirky moments, there are times where I feel like I’m being mocked and ridiculed for them. Judgement can really be a painful thing, don’t be the person who is the main contributor to that pain.

Love and happiness always,
xo, Becca

  1. I love the message of this post so much! ‘we were all put on this earth for a reason’ – so true, that’s exactly what I believe in as well 🙂 I think the fact that we’re all unique individuals is one of the most wonderful things ever because we all have to offer something, we all have strenghts as well as weaknesses. I wish we could just all accept each other for who we are x

  2. Beautiful post. It’s so important to remember we’re all different! Often on social media you see many people trying to be like other people and it’s easy to feel the pressure. Every so often it’s good to be reminded that we should embrace our individuality!

  3. This is an important message that I think all children should grow up with. When I was growing up and way through adulthood I struggled with “why am I not worthy to live just as I am?” I always felt like I had to preform and try but was constantly missing the elusive prize of worthiness.
    Again… Thank you for the message and for getting it out there.

  4. LOVE this post SO much! It’s kind of tiring to realize that we live in a society where everyone tries to hide their flaws, judging people who don’t try to conceal theirs as if it was wrong to be natural, with all our raw emotions and quirks. Thanks for spreading positivity. x
