Change is good, but only if it is initiated by you, for you. If you are going to alter yourself for someone or something else, well, it is just not worth it. You are who you are and you should let the world accept you for your traits. Here are 10 things a girl must never change about herself!
1. When you like that movie that everyone hates
Be it music, food, or movies - your personal taste makes you who you are. You can’t let your friends or anybody else force you to think their choice is better than yours.
2. If your boyfriend doesn’t like your bestie... Too bad!
Just because your parents or your partner dislikes one of your friends, doesn’t mean you need to consider parting ways with them. Good friends are hard to find and harder to keep!
3. Also, when your bestie doesn’t like your boyfriend
Ditto with your love. Unless your best friend has a genuine reason to dislike him, no one should dictate your choice of who you want to be with. She might think he isn’t good enough for you – but if you love him, nothing else should matter.
4. You life goals are your own, don’t change them for anyone
Don’t let anyone try to convince you to quit your dreams. Don’t let others judge you based on what you see for yourself in the future.
5. The never-ending chase to look like a model
No one looks like that person in the fashion magazine, not even the person in the magazine! It’s the magic of Photoshop. So stop obsessing about becoming size zero or getting some Kardashian curves. All you need to do is make sure you’re healthy! It’s your body, and you’re in charge of it.
6. Your morality is your own
Everyone has a different set of morals. Yours may be drastically different from your friend’s, partner’s or even your family’s. Respect your own and don’t forget to extend that courtesy to others.
7. Your hobbies are a personal choice
What you love doing in your ‘me’ time is your business. Just because everyone is obsessed with reading a certain book, doesn’t mean you should too. If you love knitting – do it!
8. Your style is your own!
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again - the first rule of fashion is that there are no rules. Whether you’re a sneakers-and-jeans kinda girl or simply love dressing up - you get to create your own style rules.
9. Stick to your priorities
Boyfriend, family, work, friends - everyone has their own way of prioritizing different aspects of their life. You may want to spend more hours working up the career ladder, which is absolutely fine! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
10. Finally, don’t attempt to change the people around you
Every person comes with a unique set of habits. You will never have a good reason to judge someone for the choices they make in their life. Let them be and let them let you be.
