Do You Like You?

No one likes procrastinators, or who complaints about every single thing, or who thinks they know every thing. No one likes people who cuts off people in the middle of conversation, or the opposite, not responding to conversation the way normal people does. No one likes people who disagree all the time, who doesn’t want help and doesn’t offer help, or who only does what they want.

I don’t like me. I haven’t liked the kind of person I have become. I don’t even know since when I changed from someone I like to someone I despise. 

Here’s the thing, though. No one is perfect. We don’t have to convince anyone that we are perfect or have any resemblance of a perfect life. Simply because life is not perfect, as life is also not fair at times. The most important thing is that we like ourselves.

I learn to accept who I’ve become, because I know why I changed. I’ve let my past dictate my future. I have let my emotions cloud my judgment, limiting my actions and the urge to be proactive. 

How can we love others when we cannot even love ourselves. In light of Easter, I hope we can look within and see what kind of person we are, what kind of person we aspire to be, and what possible ways we can start doing today to be the person we are meant to be.

I started reading Marie Kondo’s book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Not because I hate declutter but because I feel weighted down by how much items we’ve accumulated the past few years. I am done being dragged down by my past. How about you?
