Reasons to be proud of yourself

Life can be really difficult sometimes, right? Do you ever sit back and congratulate yourself for actually getting up today? As humans we don't seem to give ourselves credit for every-day things, yes they are the norm and seem like the littlest things ever but we need to pat ourselves on the back once in a while. Today's post is about reasons why you should be proud of yourself! 

FOR GETTING UP AND GOING
Life can throw all sorts of things at us when least expect. I admire those who still have the strength no matter what they are going through to get out of bed and do their daily routine. 

FOR BEING A GOOD PERSON
You are probably more than aware of the kind of people that exist around you, those who make you feel small, intimidate you or even bully you. Be proud for rising above their immaturity and being the person they so desperately want to be like. Set the example and kill them with kindness.

FOR DEALING WITH HEARTBREAK AND GRIEF
Two very strong, overwhelming emotions that impact on your life deeply but we've all been through them and hopefully it's made you a stronger person. First heartbreaks seem like the end of the world but it gets better I promise. Greif on the other hand never really leaves you but you find coping mechanisms. So be proud of yourself for not giving in. 

FOR GETTING THROUGH THE EDUCATION SYSTEM
Whether you pass or not, school is some of the hardest years of your life and you should be more than proud of coming out the other side. Don't fret about a grade, it's a letter that doesn't have to determine your life. Continue being you.

FOR HELPING SOMEONE IN NEED
Whether this is comforting a friend or giving money to the homeless. The littlest things in life can mean SO MUCH. 

FOR SAYING NO
You should be proud for having the strength to tell someone no, to stand up to someone and to not give in to peer pressure.Be proud for being you. 

FOR HAVING GOALS AND AMBITIONS
Be proud of yourself for knowing what direction you would like your life to take and even if you still don't know THAT IS OK! Explore different options and opportunties to end up in an ideal place you would like to be. You should be proud that you have the courage and motivation to get to those places.
