Always be you

Promise Chipeta
Posted November 26, 2018 from Malawi

My name is Promise Chipeta and I am from Malawi. I am 16 years old and I believe that no matter how young you might be, one can still be able to change the world. Faith and determination can pull you through.

Everybody needs to find the greatness in them. By this I mean finding what you are good at. Nobody must tell you that you are a failure or a loser because you reached were you are right now because of your hard work and faith. Believe in yourself at all times no matter what has gone wrong in your life.

Your worries might not be another person's worries. What you say are your insecurities might not be the same for others. No matter what people will say about you, never stop believing in yourself. Always be true to yourself. 

The world needs more people with confidence. I am saying this because my generation is full of peer pressure. Everybody wants to be somebody else. I've fallen in that pit before but I got out. I want to inspire everyone to never change for anybody apart from yourself. If you change for others, you'll always nbe filled with regret. You won't even be able to define yourself.

Girls around the world need to start believing in themselves and not changing for other.

Hi Promise:-)

Welcome to World Pulse, dear! Thanks for sharing your post. I totally agree that you're never to young to make positive change in the world. You sound like a very wise and confident young lady. I love your goal to inspire everyone to always be authentic, and true to themselves. I'm always saying this and totally agree with you! It's a great thing to have realized so early in life and a great intention/core belief to go through life with; and to inspire others to do the same.

I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you. You actually may want to consider writing a story/post for the current call for stories on "What Gives You Hope?" I think you might find it interesting and inspiring to not only yourself but your peers.

Hope you're having a great day!
