As I am finishing up my first year of college I really am noticing a change in the way I feel about myself.
I feel like now, I can post whatever I want whenever I want and wear the things I like and say the things I believe in without fear of judgment.
I think it comes from a lot of things from my growth as a person to finding out more about myself this year and finding myself through Christ and cultivating that relationship, but I think a lot of it came from leaving high school.
I have always been an insecure person, honestly. I cared about what people thought of me all through middle school and for most of high school. I found myself and did my own thing in high school, but I still longed to be accepted.
Since starting college I have become myself. I feel like I’ve blossomed into who I want to be rather than who I think everyone will like.
In high school, I felt like I could say what I wanted and do what I wanted, but the things I wanted to do and say surrounded around acceptance.
College is a time of self-discovery, but I think it is more of a time of self-acceptance. At least, I have learned to love myself more and to do the things I want to do and stand for the things I want to stand for no matter the cost.
High school was hard, they say it’s the best time of your life, but for me, college has been so worth wild!

Self acceptance is so important! I think it’s great that you have really found who you are and are embracing that 🙂
This is so refreshing and inspiring! I love hearing stories of self acceptance like this. High school and college both have their own set of challenges, I’m happy to hear you overcoming some of them!! Xo Dimitra
