Give Yourself Permission

      Image Source:Google

We often hide our true-self behind the daily highlighted presentations of ourselves.

Why cannot we give our self permission to be who we are?
When people and circumstances take a toll on us; we should slow down and breathe life. We should give ourselves permission to take life in a easy way- more relaxed way. Do not rush through life. Accept changes-that come along, and flip through each chapters (of life) slowly. 
We all face our own battles in life. And dealing with them our way; will create confidence and the courage to face any such problems in future. Not giving-up is the key!

Allow yourself to laugh out loud, to cry when you need to, to fail, to fall apart, breakdown, and get back up again, permission to be different and unique your way, permission to go too far and reach your dreams.

When you have a positive outlook in life; more positive and amazing things happen! Allow yourself to make mistakes, be the 'imperfect you', fail to succeed and make mistakes (again and again) to learn and grow. "Your life is your deal." How you want your life to be- should be completely your decision. No one will ever be successful in scoring from your life. A low score in studies; or in life will not show you as a loser; rather a fighter. A fighter who is more concerned about reaching her dreams; rather than sitting and counting her wins and losses! As rightly said by Brandon Steiner, "play the game, not the score."

"I feel suffocated when I have to hide my true self and portray a different me." Sometimes we just have to be calm and let the storm inside us (that make us act in a weird way many times) settle down-without affecting our identity and attitude. Let the changes and challenges around us happen unaffectedly! Give yourself permission to react to them; and sometimes go without any reactions.

"I have found some beautiful practices to breathe life"- 

1. Give Yourself Permission to be Imperfect.

Feel your negative feelings and heal them first. Do not run away from negative comments and remarks. Face them with courage! because you are soon going to add them to your experiences/learning towards success. Care less about other's opinions. Care for who you are today; and what you want to become tomorrow. Yes! "I give myself permission to be called anything, but not a perfectionist- even if it paralyzes my thoughts and actions of accepting 'me' in a more positive way. Allow yourself to accept-"I don't know." It is absolutely okay to not know everything and or be "perfect."

2. Give Yourself Permission to Not Feel Beautiful. 

Let your skin under your make-up show-up sometimes! Feel the real you amidst crowd. Give yourself permission to feel under the weather sometimes. It is okay to not feel yourself-all-the-time! Just relax and take it slow!

3. Give Yourself Permission to Not Follow and Go On A Detour.

Choose your own path. You may be wrong one-time; but not every time. Listen to your mind and body. Do what you think is right for you. Do not follow rules. Create yours' for yourself!

4. Give Yourself Permission to Be Available For Yourself. 

Be present  for your needs. Avoid places, people and events-that does not make you feel good and happy. Stop forcing yourself to be present everywhere, or do everything. Choose your actions.


  1. Epsita, I think we need to give ourselves permission to totally be ourselves and be good with it... I think many of us learn this with age ♡ xox

    1. Yeah! Launna..agree with you.....Thank you dear!

  2. I love this! Thanks so much for sharing this post. Sometimes we just need a little reminder and it's ok xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for the wonderful words, Elizabeth!
      I love your fashion blog and following you now.
      Stay in touch

  3. you are so right! we need to give ourselves permission to do things...and act on our own because only in this way can we truly learn.

  4. Great post! Your right, I usually tend to be really reserved but I do need to open myself up more. Everyone has imperfections and we just can't be afraid of showing them. :D

  5. Wonderful. I'm one of those people trying to be perfect but it's just exhausting. Doing what you want, how you want and when you want is entirely your choice :) There's no choosing wrong because every step brings you a new experience and learning on mistakes and success is both great and scary, but always learning :) xx Maja

    1. Rightly said,Maja! Thank you so much for leaving me a comment and sharing your thoughts!

  6. I've been doing number 2 a lot lately: Give Yourself Permission to Not Feel Beautiful.
    It's been lovely and refreshing to give my skin a break - but if I'm having a really awful day sometimes a bit of makeup really perks me up.... I know it sounds so so silly but it boosts my confidence and makes me feel like i don't need to hide away behind ginormous sunglasses and tatty hair.
    This post really was special and inspirational! Thank you!!

  7. This was such a wonderful post :)
