Do you ever feel as if you don’t fit in? I’m sure you can think of at least one occasion (if you’re lucky) when you felt that you had to change yourself - your style, your behavior, your interests - just to feel accepted.
Our social programing has a lot to do with how we present ourselves. And you cannot be self-aware enough to avoid being influenced by the people and circumstance you’re surrounded with! The expectations of your family, your friends and your macro environment puts a huge pressure on you and this often results in blocking yourself from being authentic.
As a child, when your family is supportive of your style choices you feel free to experiment. You’re naturally creating your personal style and expressing who you are through your image. However, when you feel that being yourself isn’t safe cause you’ll be judged or made fun of, you’re likely to develop a distorted self-image. The stories that your loved ones tell you become your reality and your confidence to be yourself slowly dissolves
Personal style goes way beyond fashion and trends. It’s a powerful tool to tell the world who you are and what you believe in without having to explain yourself. It helps you to express yourself truly and authentically and share your true essence with the world.
The way you dress, talk and move, your lifestyle and your emotions and especially your self-image are all important part of your presence. You cannot fake confidence, when deep inside you’re feeling that you’re not enough!
Everything on the outside is a reflection of how you feel on the inside. Your insecurities, your hopes, your desires and your fears are all showcased through your style, and there’s no way to hide from it. The more you try to deny it, the more it will show in your vibe.
Self-expression is an art. When unlock your soul-aligned style and tap into your true essence, your presence becomes magnetic. Your style choices naturally start mirroring your confidence and your inner beauty just shines from within.
It’s not always easy to see the beauty in yourself, though. In a world, where we are constantly bombarded with how we should look, feel and live our lives, it takes courage to commit to yourself. It requires you to let go of who you think you should be and allow yourself to feel into who you actually want to be. And that’s when true freedom begins.
Being yourself is liberating, exhilarating and calming at the same time.
Imagine being loved for who you are. Imagine putting on those heels without feeling that you’ll look “too sexy”. Imagine having a luxurious facial just for the sake of pampering yourself. Imagine buying the clothes you really want without feeling guilty about it. Imagine opening your wardrobe and having the clothes that tell your real story and reveal your inner beauty to the world.
How would your life change?
You could spend your entire life conforming to other people’s beliefs and still be unhappy. Or you just could start focusing on what you actually want, embrace the real you and allow yourself to feel beautiful, confident and stylish from within.
The choice is yours.
