How to Be Happy Being Yourself

Being yourself is the easy bit, but being happy is difficult. They are similar but the results are massively different.


Be yourself! This means doing what you want, achieving your goals not living up to others expectations because this is your life. It's just tuning out the little voice that says "What will so-and-so think."

Accept and forget. Write down all your flaws everything you don't like about yourself. Divide them into three columns: worth worrying about, who cares? and why is it even on this list? Rip them all up. This is not about changing yourself. This is being yourself and loving yourself for it.

Eliminate! Identify places or people or things that make you feel uncomfortable with yourself. Eliminate this stuff from your schedule. You have no time for people who don't accept you.

Forget others' opinions. If you feel fat because someone said you were they were probably covering up for their own insecurity problem. Feel superior, take the high road and forget.

Learn to forgive. Once your self-esteem is booming and confidence glowing I bet at least one person will be sorry. Forgive and forget. Everyone makes mistakes. You did by listening to them.


Listen to Christina Aguilera's 'Beautiful' and other mood boosting songs.

If you're forgiving someone make sure their apology is sincere. Mistakes happen but people should learn from them. Forgive once but never twice.

Try helping others. There is nothing like helping someone else to help improve your self confidence.

Do something that you want to do, or like, every day. Whether it be listening to the song that you love, or dancing in your underwear in your bedroom, it doesn't matter. Just do it and forget about other people. Enjoy the moment of being free, and carry that with you for the rest of the

It's your life; so live it how you want to! But be aware of what you are doing.


Could result in excessive happiness.
