There can be pressure at times to change who you are just to fit in. Whether it is for your family, friends, work or due to social media. Each day is an opportunity to learn and grow. Sometimes we change for ourselves, other times we may not be aware and start to do something that most other people are doing ❤
No matter where you go, you can be influenced. Going into a store to purchase items, the sales person may suggest trending items for you to buy. Of course, the choice comes down to you to decide, yet other people can be convincing that we need something or should be a certain way, that we may believe it. I am sure that you can remember situations where another person has influenced you in some way.
Not all influence is bad. We can come across a person who is motivating and sends a positive message that can resonate with us. Their message could be inspiring and push you in a direction that you were finding hard to pursue before. Bad influences can be when a person portrays themselves with foul language that may seem edgy and cool but in reality is revolting.
This is why it is important to understand who you are and stay true to yourself. You need to stand strong by your values, as when you do no one will be able to influence you to go against what you believe in. Values can vary from person to person. You may believe swearing is bad, yet one of your friends sees it as fine to do so. It is good to review your values every now and then.
Even though your values are strong. There is one person who can get you to change them and that person is you. When you look at what your values are, you may realise that they are not good or that you do not have any at all. The great thing is that you can change for the better and choose positive values for yourself. Think of love, kindness and generosity, and go from there 😀
Looking at love as a value. You can look into it and realise that all people need love. Love is a beautiful feeling that many seek. The love from our partner, parents, siblings, friends and the world can be different but each is a form of love. One of your values could be that you believe it is important to be nice to others, as doing so you are spreading more love into our lovely planet 🙂
With kindness, you can believe that being kind to others will help them to be kind to those who they interact with. Generosity is a loving act of kindness. You may believe that donating monthly to a local charity is good to help those in need. Each of these values are positive. Having values is needed as the values you choose are a reflection of yourself and can guide you through your journey in life ❤
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a glowing butterfly on nightlight mushroom acrylic painting. Butterflies are elegant and beautiful to see out in nature. I love going outside at night and gazing up at the stars. It is always so magical and dreamy ❤
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Learn what your values are and stand by them. Do your best to not be so influenced by those who are not showing good values. Stay true to who you are and love yourself. Have a magical day!
