Have you ever met someone that is so captivating, charming, funny, and intelligent? This does not have to be romantic, but you surely have encountered someone so interesting that you slightly wish you could be like them.
It’s a secret wish that a lot of people have — to become more interesting. However, some end up trying hard, which should not be the case! You may have this impression that being interesting can be quite challenging, but it is not!
If there’s one thing that you need to understand, it goes beyond using a round brush hair straightener, wearing trendy clothes, and being physically appealing. Here are some of the things you may want to keep in mind:
Acknowledge this truth first
Before anything else, you have to acknowledge this truth first: you are already interesting. There are already incredible facts about you. But these are just overshadowed by your low self-esteem or insecurities, which is just normal. So, believe that you are interesting and that you are worthy of love and admiration. You have your weaknesses — so what? You are doing your best to be a better person than yesterday, a fact that already makes you interesting. Remember this: you are the only person who can place a value on yourself.
Just be free
One of the biggest barriers to showing your great self is fear. You are afraid of what people will say about you. You are afraid that they may comment on your unusual sense of style. You are afraid that you will not be able to please those you like. You know what? Ditch that fear! That fear prevents you from exploring things — from meeting other interesting people who may help your inner self shine. Don’t hide behind your insecurities. More importantly, don’t shut people out; some may have already found interesting, but you have chosen to build walls around you just because you have thought that people are not interested in you.
Get new skills
If you want to be interesting and still desire to bring some value to the table, learn new skills! This can be helpful, especially if you are building your career. Useful skills, ranging from graphic design to survival tactics, can make you helpful in situations where you might be needed. Moreover, having such skills and interests will help you find like-minded people.
Know the art of storytelling
Charismatic people have one thing in common: they know how to tell a story. Their humor is based on real-life anecdotes, which are told in a simple yet appealing manner. Thankfully, this is something that you can learn. However, do not make the mistake that storytelling is all about you. You also need to learn how to listen and take an interest in what others are saying.
You got this!
This article wants you to know that you have always been an interesting person to wrap it up. You may not be aware of it because you are insecure and unconfident. But take some baby steps so that you will be able to come out of your shell eventually. People will love you!
