Positive post and FOTD

I found an amazing blog and with it a beautiful writing thats says:

"Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I wanted to be wanted. So for years, I sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy. And for years, I suffered. But I’m tired of suffering, and I’m done shrinking. It’s not my job to change who I am in order to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. I am worthwhile. Not because other people think I am, but because I exist, and therefore I matter. My thoughts matter. My feelings matter. My voice matters. And with or without anyone’s permission or approval, I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth. Even if it makes people angry. Even if it makes them uncomfortable. Even if they choose to leave. I refuse to shrink. I choose to take up space. I choose to honor my feelings. I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met. I choose to make self-care a priority. I choose me."

I'm so happy to find it and Goddd how accurate this is.

Five years ago I took the best decision of my life, the one that changed me and changed my perspective of everything that surrounded me, FOREVER. It's not news for me that I have never fit in, I was always the weirdo in every school I went to or have never fit into any group.



And because of that, I started to adjust myself to others. I was afraid that people didn't like me, I could say I became something I wasn't. I was always trying to make everyone around me happy. I wanted so bad to be "wanted", accepted or find someone who fill up the holes, the emptiness. All I ever wanted was to be accepted for who I was, with all my flaws and insecurities.


But NONE of that would ever happen If I didn't accept myself first. Until I finished the war I had inside, until I looked at me and loved each inch of my body, all my imperfection; I needed to find things by myself first. I needed to realize it was ok to be selfish once in a while, it's healthy and necessary. And most importantly it's impossible to make everyone happy.

I was done and made my decision, I started to accept and love myself. I didn't want people to use me anymore, I didn't want to be betrayed, I didn't want to suffer anymore, I didn't want to adapt myself, I wanted to be happy.

It was a very long Journey (I'm still on it) and I learnt a lot along the way. I set myself free, I cut negative things and people out of my life, I became more positive looking always at the bright side of things. I still don't fit in much, but I'm happy and comfortable with it, who said everyone has to like you?

For me the key to my happiness is to know my worth, to accept myself and to stay positive. Even when I don't have hope.

When you distance yourself from negativity, good things start to happen to you. And for every life you touch, even if you hurt them, leave something positive in their lives.

Encontré un blog y en el una frase hermosa. Estoy tan feliz de haberlo encontrarlo y Dios mioooo todo como que encaja.

Hace cinco años tomé la mejor decisión de mi vida, la que me cambió a mi y a mi perspectiva de todo lo que me rodeaba, para SIEMPRE. No es noticia nueva para mí que nunca he encajado, siempre fui el bicho raro en cada colegio que estuve o nunca encajé en ningún grupo.

Debido a eso, comencé a adaptarme a los demás. Tenía miedo de no gustarle a la gente, podría decir que me convertí en algo que no era. Siempre estaba tratando de hacer feliz a todos a mi alrededor. Deseaba tanto ser "querida", aceptada o encontrar a alguien que llenara el vacío. Todo lo que quería era ser aceptada por quién era, con todos mis defectos e inseguridades. Estaba prácticamente desesperada.

Pero NADA de eso iba a suceder si no me aceptaba primero a mí misma. Hasta que terminé con la guerra interna, hasta que me miré y amé cada centímetro de mi cuerpo incluyendo todas mis imperfecciones; primero necesitaba encontrarme a mí. Necesitaba darme cuenta que estaba bien ser egoísta de vez en cuando, es saludable y necesario. Y lo más importante que es imposible hacer feliz a todo el mundo.



Yo toqué fondo y tomé mi decisión, empecé a aceptarme y amarme. No quería que la gente me utilizara más, no quería ser traicionada, no quería sufrir más, no quería adaptarme, quería ser feliz.

Fue un viaje muy largo (todavía estoy en él) y he aprendido mucho en el camino. Me acepté, corté las personas y cosas negativas de mi vida, me volví más positiva buscando siempre el lado bueno de las cosas. Todavía no encajo mucho, pero me siento cómoda y feliz con eso ¿Quién dijo que le tienes que gustar a todo el mundo?

Para mí la clave de mi felicidad es saber lo que valgo, aceptarme y mantenerme positiva. Incluso cuando no tengo esperanza.

Tengo una filosofía de vida: Cuando te distancias de la negatividad, cosas buenas empiezan a pasar. Y por cada vida que toques, incluso si los has herido, deja algo positivo en sus vidas.

OOTD: Comfy look

These pictures were taken with my cellphone last Saturday while I was walking with my sister after class. Saturdays are for comfy looks because I spend 7 hrs at Uni (yes, I'm not always happy on Saturdays). But anyway, I found this beautiful wall and automatically asked my sis to take some pictures for the blog.

Hope you guys like it :)
