How will you be able to fight for something that you can't even distinguish? Finding yourself, your voice, is not an easy task. In fact, it's the most difficult step. As they say, the beginning is always the hardest. A lot of people get stuck here. It's ironic really, you lose yourself in the process of trying to find yourself. The reason behind this is that people complicate things. You really don't need a worldwide adventure to recognize who you are. You already know what kind of person you are. You've been building this person all your life. It's in your subconscious. It's in all the decisions you have made. Finding yourself is just a matter of recognizing what you believe in, what you want to do, what your favorite color is. That mix of everything you do, everything you say, everything you see, all of that makes up you. There's really no definite word to describe who you are because that person is worth much more than words.
Often times, people are put down because they do not have self-confidence. They don't believe in themselves, in their own voice. So society says, why should I believe in you? Having faith and respect for yourself is so essential in life. Without it, you are just an empty shell, going through life. You let other people, the voices, tell you who you're supposed to be because you have no respect for yourself. Which is why I'm telling you now, love who you are. Love everything about you. Let them call you every name they can because once you've believed in yourself, those voices don't matter anymore. You've been hearing this same advice all your life. Don't let it reach to the point where you have too many regrets already. Have love and respect for yourself and the rest will follow.
There has been so many times where we have been put down by so many people; it becomes countless and tiring. You lose faith really. Do not let yourself succumb to those thoughts of giving up. Fight back. Tell everyone who has ever thought that you were nothing, that you could not reach the goal, that you were beneath them, to just stop because you know you're not, and no amount of taunting could ever put you down. Fight because you, yes, you who is reading this, is worth fighting for.
After finding, believing, and fighting for yourself, this is the easiest step. You'll realize that all those voices in your head, all those voices that have destroyed you so many times, mean nothing anymore. You realize they're just voices and their effect on you was purely by choice. Letting go of them, is not even needed anymore by this time because you've already let go. You'll look in the mirror and see a happier person. A person who smiles a bit more, stands up a little straighter, and just glows with self-confidence.
Now, after you've pushed all those voices out, slowly hand pick a few and let them in. Let in the voices that matter. Find the voices which will help to continuously make a better you. After reading steps 1-4, you might think that it's pretty crazy for you to do that. Well it's not. Think back to all those times where you felt like nothing because no one would listen to your concrete and sound advice. Don't be that person who you loathed before for not listening to you. Be a person who knows how to distinguish the good from the bad voices, and be an inspiration for others to do the same.
