Stop impressing…

Lately. . . .

After reflecting on my day and reading this quote, I realized that when I interact with certain individuals in particular settings I attempt to impress them. 

Now I’m questioning why do I do that? Why don’t I realize it at that given moment? Was I attention seeking ? Was this apart of my insecurities? 

Why am I attempting to impress? 

Trying to impress others does nothing but hurt the individual trying to hard. I’m realizing that I don’t surround myself around individuals who think highly of me, so I try to change people perception of me. I tend to feel like I don’t fit in or I can’t be myself around others. Sadly when I’m around people you might think I should be comfortable around I feel the same. I feel like I’m not loved, unappreciated, unnoticed, etc…

How I would address the issue moving forward

My actions stem from a lack of confidence and an abundance of insecurities. I have to try focusing on how to build up my self-confidence, becoming more open minded, accepting things for what they are, and increasing self-awareness. 

For those who can relate keep in mind that you are perfect no matter what emotions you’re feeling. No need to impress when you’re already impressive!
