Six~Word Story

I will not change for you!

My six words are dedicated to anyone who wanted me to conform to what they thought I should be.

Own who you are and fall in love with yourself. 

If change occurs let it be for you and not anyone else. Changing for others is inauthentic behavior and will never make you happy. You might satisfy others, but to hell with them, this is your life, and It’s time to live it!

Daily Affirmation:

I am who I am because that is who I was meant to be

I am stepping into my new life because I am strong enough to fail and determined enough to win

I am who I am because that is who I want to be

I would love to hear your words regarding something you are doing for yourself, regardless of the length.

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. Great message! I do agree that there’s a lot of people out there that want us to constantly change and do things their way. But luckily, it’s a creator’s world. A creator’s world allows us to be ourselves, even better, we’re allowed to be ourselves without having a set way for how to express ourselves. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am who I am, period. I am resonating with your six words, in that I spent many years changing who I am to appease others. Though it’s been years since I stopped this practice, it’s important to stand in the truth of this former reality, while I create and claim my six word current reality. 💜💜

  4. This is amazing, Bella. Thanks for this boost of encouragement for my morning. I’m fighting myself to achieve self-love and it’s been tough for me. However, I’m confident I’ll be able to change for myself and be happy. Someday, what people say I should be would never matter anymore.

  5. “Always striving to be even better!” We have the ability to be better contributors to life, love, and humanity. We have the ability to look our best, be our best, and do our best. We cannot conform to the “itching ears” syndrome. As Des’ree sang, “You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta wiser, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger…” 🥰🤜🏼🤛🏼😍💪🏼🤗

  6. Social media is much to blame for this unfortunately! Young people are being taught that they are not good enough everyday, and are shown a warped vision on how they should act and look?

    I’m so glad I was an 80s child; there was no internet to influence me, just memorable days out with friends; when we actually playing out, and enjoyed one another’s company!

    If I was a young person now, I would delete my TikTok, Twitter, Instagram etc, as they’re all very damaging to your mental health, and live how you want to be, and rediscover yourselves!

    My only preference now in the online world is WordPress; which is a joy to me as it gives me my own voice; it’s a great new hobby too!

    Thank you for the great post, and always ‘be you!’.

    1. This comment is exactly what all kids need to read and hear! You hit every positive and negative point about living with and living without social media. My daughter deleted her account so she could figure out who she truly was and not what society thought she should be. Loving herself for who she is has been a struggle but now she’s got it!!! And I am so grateful for it.
      Thank you son much for dropping by and blessing the post with this comment. I hope you have a wonderful Friday 😊

      Overthinking is a tough one and something I always tell my kids to stop doing, especially when it comes to sports We have to get out of our own head and just go!!!! Win or lose it’s all good!
