Hey, lovelies! I know it has been a while since I've posted an advice article. So if you want to gain confidence and not care about what people think, continue reading xx

➳ one life and that’s it

We all saw this coming. But yes, are we really going to waste time overthinking and worrying about what other people think of us? At the end of the day, is it even worth it? ( Of course not! )

I want you to ask yourself a couple of questions right now: So what if several people don’t like me? So what if several people don’t agree with me on my actions or words? So what if several people in my past left me?

We. Need. To. Move. On. Sadly, both time and life don't wait for us. So just be who you want to be, screw what others think and just use the rest of your time on Earth to your full potential.

➳ fake it till you make it

I’m sure all of us knows this saying. Always start with yourself. Force yourself to think more positively and feel free to even pretend to be a confident person. Because even if you don’t believe it, trust me. You will soon.

If you’re trying to change or make a change in your life, don’t prioritize thinking about how others might think or react to it. Prioritise thinking about how YOU think or react to it. As long as you know that you want to do or say something, go at it with this kind of fake confidence. Because after you get the ball rolling, you’re going to feel so much better because the first step is always the toughest.

You’ll eventually attract more of that confidence to you. What you think - you’ll soon become.

➳ it’s not you, it’s them

You should always respect and understand others because all of us have our differences and things that we might not agree on. But if some people aren’t giving you back the same respect and understanding, that just reflects on what type of person they are. Simple as that.

As long as you’re not hurting or affecting others in any negative way, then it’s really their problem that they can’t accept you for who you are. Always, always, always be you and stay true to yourself.

I know people always say this: others that judge, bully, hurt or make fun of you are just jealous of you or are insecure about themselves. You just gotta keep reminding yourself of this. If someone is trying to pull you down, that’s because you’re ALREADY on top of them. Don’t let them succeed in pulling you down - remember to never stoop to a level as low as them. It’s the truth.

➳ not everyone will like you - and that’s okay

Even if you try to please and satisfy the people in your life, it is inevitable that there will still be people that wouldn’t like you.

" Don’t lose yourself in the process of trying to please everybody else. "

Why not learn to like yourself instead? Get rid of the people who don’t accept you for who you are. There’s no space for toxic people and negativity here. Like I’ve said, it’s them, not you.

Then, spend the time learning to love yourself instead. You won’t regret it.

➳ set yourself free

Be real, honest and authentic to yourself. Keep your love and trusted ones close. put yourself out there - I challenge you to go out into the world and do what you want to do and be who you want to be. Stop living in fear and start living your life to the fullest by learning how to step out of your comfort zone in order to achieve your dreams.

" I used to walk into a room full of people and wonder if they liked me, but now I look and wonder if I like them. "

^ This isn't about judging people, by the way. It means to know how to differentiate out the toxic people and to know that you no longer need them in your life.
