The last two days I was busy with finding inspiration for my photo shoot tomorrow. (This photo shoot is only for my blog.) But I still haven’t find anything helpful.. So i started thinking: “why do I see so many beautiful photo’s all over the internet from other bloggers, magazines, brands but not one of the photo’s I want to use as a inspiration for my photo’s?”
I came to this conclusion.. “It is not who I am..”
The models are so beautiful but they look so serious, I am far away from serious.. I always laugh (on pictures), I can’t help it. People who know me always say “you are such a happy person, always happy”. And yes I am, I can laugh about nothing and that is who I am. So i choose to not use inspiration from some one else, just go with the flow and be 100% ME.
Be honest, why does everyone like the Victoria’s Secret show so much? Of course because of the models, they are so beautiful and the whole show is amazing. But look at those girls, walking / dancing / enjoying the show, they are confident. And I’m sure that’s what make this show so special. You can see that they having fun, they enjoy every step on the catwalk.
You can not change into some one that your not.. And you shouldn’t want to.
I can make beautiful serious pictures tomorrow but why? -A: I don’t feel comfortable with it and -B: I see someone else on it and I want to show the beauty of the real you. I do understand that a lot of people feel insecure about who they are and thinking: Do people like me? Am I good enough? Do they think I am fat? blabla.. I’m sure everybody has that sometimes.. But you can choose to let it come close to you and feel horrible about it, or you just let it go and listen to yourself. You can not change your personality for somebody else, if you do that it will make you unhappy, uncomfortable, insecure and that is nothing like you! It is what you let others do to you and change you.
You can make your good things better though. If you are funny or loyal to your friends or anything you really like about yourself, show that! And focus on that! Accept who you are and be happy with the things you DO have. That will make you so much more happier, just be you! And other people will see the beauty in you too, they will like you for who YOU are, and not for who you trying to be.
I was struggling with this issue for a very long time, I didn’t know who i was.. Me and my friends were always laughing, but if some one else was complaining about it I stopped and try to be serious. I felt really bad and thought that they didn’t like me. But the next day they didn’t even remember and i felt bad? Bit strange right? But hey! Why do I worry about it? They could also come to us and laugh too, but now I know that they felt bad. They hated school and I think it is being jealous in a kind of way that we had fun with everything we did. So changing who you are isn’t always good, you don’t need to change for somebody else, you can not make everybody happy and how good you are there are ALWAYS people who talk negative about you. But don’t let that come close to you and let that changing who you are.
I hope this will help you, it will be such a relief. Stop thinking for others, be real with yourself. You are the one who has to live with it for the rest of your life and there are many people who like you for who you are.
