Better, better, better. We always strive for “better”. We want to feel better, we want to look better, we want to be better. We also want the people around us to be better. But what is “better”? How can we achieve “better”? If you keep telling yourself “I have to be better”, this is an article for you. First, it is important to understand that “better” is a relative concept. Meaning, yes – you can always be better than what you are or better than how you behave, but, and this is the secret – you can also always be worse – so keeping a balance of how you criticize yourself and those who surrounds you and how you appreciate yourself and those who surrounds you, will actually help you be better, and even look better! Here’s how.
Bitterness Is Repulsive
When you’re too hard on yourself and on those in your life, you’re risking turning bitter and this is a repulsive character. If you’re bitter you won’t be able to see the good things in you and you know what? Others won’t be able to see it too. Same goes with the way you see your family members and friends – if you’re constantly hang on to the bad things, how could you ever pay attention to the beauty in the people in your life?
Positivity Is Attractive
Try to imagine the last time you’ve met with someone who were positive about themselves and about you. Didn’t you find them attractive? And by attractive we don’t necessarily mean sexually, but more as someone you wanted to spend more time with, talk with and be inspired by. Sure if the circumstances are right, you will find that positivity is also defiantly a turn-on.
Growing a healthy self-esteem
Striving to be better is good. You only have to make sure you don’t get yourself down in the process of becoming a better person. Be more confident, allow yourself to be proud when you do something good, and you know what? When you look in the mirror, you don’t always must focus your attention on the things you like less about yourself – instead, try to pay more attention to the things you do love about yourself. The more you’ll be confident with your own skin, the more you’ll be able to see the good things about others (because you’ll be less focused on trying to compare yourself with them). Soon enough, you’ll find that more and more people want to be around you and spend more time with you.
Embrace positivity – embrace life.
