Five years ago if you were to ask us what our goal in life was, in all honesty we’d probably shrug our shoulders and say “I don’t know” (in unison of course). It wasn’t until recently that we finally came up with a response that we truly meant and believed in.
Our biggest goal in life is to be HAPPY. Not content, not alright with life. But happy. 100% happy. We don’t want a big fancy car or huge house or a million dollars (although let’s be honest that would be kinda awesome). We just want the chance to live our lives in complete and utter joy.
Until recently, we weren’t really sure how to be happy. We knew we wanted to be happy but weren’t sure how to accomplish it. For us, being happy means fully accepting everything about ourselves, including the things we don’t particularly like or can’t change.
There’s no doubt that we’re socially awkward. Always have been, always will be. Being awkward is not something that you can just grow out of. Some people judge, some people laugh. We like to accept it. It is what it is.
The thing is we didn’t really know how to accept this apart about ourselves until recently and we realized we would hate it if other people had to figure out how to accept awkwardness on their own. So loves, here is a little list we came up with to help you accept the awkward!
Come To Terms With Your Awkwardness
Awkwardness is not taught or learned, it just is. And if you are fortunate enough to be chosen for this very distinct group of awkward people, then embrace it. Tbh, no matter what you do (at least for us anyway 🙂 ) your awkwardness will never really go away.
Accept Yourself For Who You Are
Now loves, we know you guys may think coming to terms with the awkwardness and accepting yourself is the same thing, but we are here to tell you my friends it is not. Acceptance is all about learning to love that awkwardness. It’s about cherishing something that makes you distinctly you.
Realize People Will Love You For You
The people who matter in your life aren’t the ones who will laugh at you for falling up the stairs or make fun of that time no one laughed when you made that bad joke. No, the one’s who matter are the people who think it’s cute the way snort when you laugh or like that weird picture you shared. Theses are the people who matter. These are the people who will love you for you.
Awkwardness is a way of life. Love it, embrace it, and cherish it, because it’s what makes you (an already pretty awesome person) YOU!
