Finding yourself is a journey everyone wants to begin but no one know really where to start. Now before I go into how I personally have begun to find myself I just want you all to know that often this journey doesn’t end. You will always find yourself in new experiences and as you grow older. People often get angry when they struggle to find themselves but that’s because they’re overthinking it. It’s a wonderful journey and is pretty much the journey of life. Don’t get disheartened if you find it difficult.
What I would begin with is making a list of everything that makes you happy. This could be little pleasures or materialistic things. It could also be future dreams or goals you may have. If they make you happy, if the thought of them makes you happy then write them down.
Once you’ve done that make sure this list is always available to you. Try implement items from the list in your everyday life. It may sound weird but trust me it works!
Finding yourself is often also about finding your style. Now there’s many ways you can do this such as looking through the instagram account of someone who’s style you like, however for me finding my style was about accepting that other people’s opinions don’t matter. If you are comfortable in what you’re wearing then who cares what others think. The confidence within you will shine once you accept this and trust me it’ll feel good!
Now finding yourself is often about getting rid of the negatives. It’s about accepting life’s difficulties and facing them head on. See where your strengths lie.
If you have a passion then make sure you do whatever is involved in that passion every single day. If you love to listen to music and learn about it then listen and learn every day. If you love animals then go out of your way to see or spend time with an animal every day.
Finding yourself is about learning new things, exploring, seeing what you don’t like and seeing what you do like. It’s about remembering to look after yourself. It’s about knowing that your life is your own and you have full control over it, go in the direction you want to go in!
