While life moves in mysterious and confusing ways, sometimes stepping back and appreciating yourself as a person, the security you derive from your integrity and identity, can be a joyful and self-assuring experience. Not enough time is spent on this reinforcing introspection: people are often predisposed to criticise their actions and personality without highlighting their good aspects. Spotting little clues in your own behaviour that you are comfortable with who you are and what you stand for should be a routine part of existence. What follows are some tell-tale signs that you’re winning at life, perhaps without even knowing it!

Style

From hair through to clothes, shoes and accessories, a person’s outward appearance is the cover by which the book is judged. On the whole, feeling judged is an uncomfortable ordeal, and so our clothes reflect the parts of our personality that we are most comfortable and at peace with sharing. Take a look at your wardrobe and consider what each outfit communicates. You’ll find that you’re dressing to show off your personality with pride, and that’s a wholesome feeling!

Friends

Whether you’re introverted or extroverted, you’ll have friends and groups in the presence of which your personality will soar! Having a mix of people you love around you and feeling comfortable enough to be gross or silly with them means that you’re enjoying an inner contentedness that goes far beyond any self-conscious anxiety. After all, hanging out with pals is all about the freedom to express yourself. When you can do this, that freedom plays directly into your feelings of contentedness!

Self-Care

Respecting yourself and being constructively critical of your behaviour often goes hand-in-hand with self-confidence and inner peace. Accepting flaws, or challenging them, is a healthy part of personal development. If you’re a man, feeling comfortable heading over to Bathmate Direct for special products might show your ability to take the initiative for self-improvement. If you’re of the fairer sex, then heading to a beauty salon or a spa will likewise show an admirable effort to pamper and treat yourself to something that will do good in all areas of your life.

Alone Time

While the company of friends can bring out a gregarious and fun-loving side that is extremely enriching, time enjoyed in one’s own company has its own benefits for feeling comfortable in yourself. There are multiple benefits to spending time alone, and they all lead to a sense of deep trust in yourself and your actions, and a deeper understanding of what makes you tick. This knowledge is invaluable when life throws a curveball your way, and you need to trust in your deep-seated morals, feelings, thoughts and fantasies to guide you through it!Of course there are dozens of more signs of a self-contented person, and naturally, everyone is different. However, hopefully, after consulting this list, you’ll be able to reflect on areas of your life with an entirely new mindset: that of pride and happiness in who you are and what you stand for!
