The Things That Do and Don’t Define You as a Person

I am forever needing to remind myself that although I didn’t finish school or get a university degree, this does not therefore automatically make me inferior to my peers who did. Nor should I ever compare myself to their list of physical achievements. There are far more important qualities and better ways to define yourself by. So, a gentle reminder for those who need it…
Things that don’t define you as a person:
– Your qualifications
– Your health or illness
– Numbers in a bank account
– Your relationship status
– Your exam results
– Your list of physical achievements 📝
– Your gender, race, sexuality, or physical appearance
– External circumstances that are not within your control


The things that do:
– How you treat your friends and family
– How you treat strangers
– How you treat yourself
– The energy you put out in the universe
-👭How you make other people feel
– Your attitude in life
– How kind you are
– Your morals and beliefs
– The care you show for the planet
– Who you are as an individual 🌟💛
