M’sian Actress & Singer Fazura Shares Her Tips On Self Love
Nur Fazura binti Sharifuddin, better known as Fazura is one of Malaysia’s most iconic celebrities. She’s an actress, singer, host, entrepreneur and she has gorgeous, glowing skin to boot!
Earlier this year, she won the Platinum Award by Universal Music Malaysia for her single, Can’t Forget Me – which also shot to no.1 on iTunes Malaysia just after 7 hours of it’s release.
Recently, Fazura shared her tips on self-love to her fans on Instagram, and we’re excited to try them out, especially tip no. 5!
1. “Everything happens for a reason.”
Whether it’s heartbreak, or a shift in your career, everything happens for a reason. You just don’t know it yet. As Fazura shared:
“It takes a lot of faith so always just listen to YOUR instincts.”
Sometimes, we can’t see the future unfold in front of us, but that doesn’t mean we’re lost or inadequate. You just need time to figure it out, and perhaps the future will figure itself out.
2. “Sit, breathe and take time to write down everything amazing you know about yourself.”
In a world where we’re busy trying to be productive, we may forget to be positive in the process. Plus, cancel culture makes us quite prone to hatred, even towards ourselves. The singer advises:
“If you have a lot of hate for others, it only means you have a lot of hate for yourself.. replace it with love immediately.”
Love doesn’t solve every problem, but it sure makes our world a better place.
3. “Smile and remember your worth.”
When you get betrayed by the people you love most, it shatters your self-esteem and it can be difficult to rebuild your trust again, but sometimes, we need to let go of the past.
“You will never feel like a victim again. Because you never were in the first place. Chin up!”
Take those negative experiences and shape them into life lessons, but never let the negativity get the better of you.
4. “Take no BS.”
Even as adults, it can be difficult to say no to favours or toxic people because it’s human nature to want to please. It makes us happy to see others glad, but even so, there are days when you need to put yourself first.
“If you feel like saying no out of self-love, respect and for following your intuition.”
Remember, prioritize your well-being before you’re ready to take on any extra responsibility. At the end of the day, the only person you can take care of is yourself.
5. “You don’t need a companion or relationships to be happy.”
Fazura is right here! At least more of us are realizing that we don’t need a man to be happy. We can be happy by ourselves, and that’s the greatest gift we can give ourselves, really.
“Eat alone, watch a movie alone, laugh out loud! Because who cares?”
And according to the actress, this kind of self-love and assurance will make us feel really powerful.
6. “Forgive yourself and forgive others.”
People hurt us, and we hurt others. Sh*t happens – it’s part of life. Forgiveness is pretty liberating. No matter what happened in the past, time heals wounds of all kinds, physical and emotional.
“Even when they don’t seek for your forgiveness, send them light and love.”
Even though holding a grudge can be good for you, you’ll need time to process things. Forgive yourselves and others, but always stand your ground.
7. “You are your own magic!”
We’ll be the first to admit that we’re guilty of comparing ourselves to others. This “comparison” trait has been instilled in us since kindergarten, we can’t help it. Even so, the Fazbulous entrepreneur lets us know:
“Never compare yourself to another person. Find your inner-awesomeness, crown on and slay anything you put your mind to. Nobody can take this away from you.”
There’s always something you’re awesome at, even if it’s just being yourself! Find your strengths and let yourself bloom with grace and love. Check out Fazura’s original Instagram post below for more self-loving tips:
