The Best of You

The Best of You

Who is ‘The Best of You’?

Have you taken a minute out of your busy life just to ponder on this question? Many times, we just rush through life that we do not pause to look at everything around us. How many of us actually think we are the best? So often we can be clouded with doubt, uncertainty and judgement; not only on ourselves but also towards others. Many of us tend to look at this world with judgmental eyes; making judgement on others based on how they look, dressed or behave. The same as how many of us would feel the world is judging us but let me tell you that all of this doesn’t matter.

How the world judge you is not as important as how you look at yourself. So what if the person next to you think that they are much better than you or what if you might not be as accomplished in life compared to them? What is the rationale for them to judge you and on what basis are they to think you are not as good as they are? No matter what decisions you make in your life, never allow anyone to belittle you or even make you feel unworthy because it is your life to live. The most important thing is to remember to always be the best of you at all times. Live each and every day with the best version of yourself no matter what life throws at you.

It’s ok to feel depressed or emotionally weak, it’s ok to be dependent on others at time, it’s ok to feel weak and vulnerable because everyone experience this at least once in their life. But, this does not mean that you are worthless or you are not good enough.
Being weak just means you are human. I had an inspirational weekend at ‘The Best of You’ movement exhibition held at AEON Bandaraya Melaka last weekend hosted by Julie’s Biscuits. It was such a meaningful event that deserves every support from everyone.
The Best of You movement aims to be a platform inspiring everyone with stories shared by every walk of life; stories that tug at your heartstrings and make you realize you are not alone. The exhibition was filled with art pieces as well with their own emotional stories behind them.
That there are so many of us out there who may be experiencing the same situation you are in, motivational testimonies which keeps driving you forward, and most importantly for this year’s theme; To not be judgmental. To look at others with clear eyes and mind; not judging them on their appearance, race, religion, beliefs and to accept them for who they are.
Because everyone is special in their own way; no one is the same and that is what makes us all unique. Once we learn to accept each other for who we truly are, that’s when we can learn to grow together and united.
No condemnation but instead acceptance; if we want others to accept us for who we are, we should first learn to accept others for who they are. No longer needing to live and conform to the ways of the society just to fit in, but for each individual to be able to live their lives according to their own character, personalities, and beliefs without worrying about getting rejected. Look for the best in others as others see the best in you.
