Why You Need To Be Self-Conscious
Being self-conscious is both a good and bad thing — we must be aware of our physical form because we need to keep it healthy and able so that we can experience the full range of what this existence has to offer. However we cannot take the physical body’s appearance too seriously because we are not our bodies.
We are the consciousness that inhabits the flesh — therefore we cannot be fat and we cannot be ugly because these are terms associated with the flesh. Your actions determine how beautiful or ugly you are and your ability to experience life determines how healthy or unhealthy you are.
If you want to lose weight — do it for yourself and not so that you can be compared with photoshopped images. Do it so that you can have a healthier body that can give you the most out of this human experience. If you’re trying to gain the affection of someone else, first ask yourself — would you date you?
Indeed, you could buy the cosmetic products, the surgeries and the validation that comes with that — but it will never fulfil you from the inside. True confidence comes from the ability to be happy with who you are — working on the relationship you have with yourself is a great way to achieve this.
Spend time with yourself doing things that make you happy and gain an understanding of what you want from the time you have left on the planet. When you understand that life is too short to waste time on trying to be like everyone else — you will gain perspective of what is truly important to you.
If you are feeling self-conscious about the way you look understand that this is because you are comparing yourself to others and/or do not love yourself 100%. With this in mind it’s time to start showing yourself some love and embrace the way you are instead of trying to be something you’re not.
Be conscious of how you act rather than how you look.
