Embrace Your Inner Weirdo And Develop Confidence

Your “inner weirdo” is the part of yourself that you try to hide or change; the part of you that you’ve been told is unacceptable; the part of you that you think people judge negatively. It’s what makes you feel different, awkward, and unlovable.

Your inner weirdo is actually what makes you unique and special!  It’s where your power and strengths come from.

Being different means you have something to offer this world that no one else has! This is very special. Your inner weirdo is your power, not your weakness. Each time you are authentic in your interactions, you offer the world something new. No one else has your perceptions. No one else can say things the way you do. No one else can do things the way you do. You have a unique voice and presence. Each part of you is different and perfect: the way you approach things, how you interpret things, how you relate to people, what you like, don’t like, what you want, what you need, what you’re good at, and what’s hard for you. Your personality, which at different times may be over-the-top, depressed, impulsive, rigid, anxious, etc., is special and important. When you embrace yourself and share who you are with the world, you offer an incredible gift that only you can give. The world needs you!

Sometimes, people try to plan how they will speak, how they will act, and what they will do or not do in a particular situation. This increases anxiety because planning to act like you’re someone else puts a lot of pressure on yourself. And, when you aren’t genuine, you leave people perceiving you as uncomfortable. If you embrace your inner weirdo and let yourself shine, you appear confident, even in your oddness.

People would feel the same way about me if I were trying to behave according to a plan, rather than being with people, in the moment, unafraid to be myself. When you enter a situation knowing it doesn’t matter what you say or do because you’re awesome no matter what, you can be your authentic self. Only then will you come across as confident in who you are. When you accept yourself and aren’t afraid to just be, other people will accept you too. Of course, not everyone will like you, but some people will. And those who don’t won’t matter. What’s most important is that you like yourself, accept yourself, forgive yourself for any mistakes you make, and that you define yourself by who you are, not what you do.

Why try to be ordinary when your true self is extraordinary?
