Celebrate brilliant minds
GIRL, don't let the thoughts and opinions of others become your own. Worst line ever? We have always done it like this. Lover what could be impossible to another could be very possible for you. People hate change, seeing growth in others can remind them of the action they're not taking. Don't let this take away your focus, stay in your own lane, others may try to drag you over to their's but being a badass means staying head strong and true to your own values and beliefs. Be bold and brave enough to stand alone.
My sassy honeypot conforming is failure, you were born with your own unique views, talents and ideas. Use them. Conforming to other people's views and values is a life spent in misery, sometimes this can involve stepping away from friends, family and lovers, babe always choose you first. You can never give back if you haven't learnt the art of being so self-aware that opinions of others are just white noise. I'm always hearing and seeing views and opinions I don't agree with, I don't change to fit in with someone else, I don't kick off because I hear something I don't like. I focus on my own shit, energy focused on disagreeing with someone is energy wasted. It's incredibly easy to fall in line, we are continually told how we should act even how we should feel. The pressures we are all under is pretty immense but remember you have the choice... you can still listen to others but live by your own rules. Aren't we only under pressure if we choose to take it on? We can see the pressure as unfair on us, the images of the "perfect" body, the "perfect" mother, job, wardrobe, relationships. Or ignore it, don't succumb to a diet culture, a world where we go on forums for advice then end up feeling worse. How about we listen to ourselves more? We are well equipped to know what we need and want in life but this vision can get very blurred in the society we live in. Some people don't only step out of the box they build a fucking castle, you can build whatever you want babe. Trust your own emotions, know one knows you better than you. You don't need to ask for permission, stop asking to have your opinions validated, if it matters to you then that's your answer.
Brilliant minds can be found everywhere, everyone has the ability to master a skill they feel passionate about. The only differences between the babes you view as successful is they didn't give up. Don't you give up. I've been told my ideas are unrealistic, unachievable, I believed this for many years and this ultimately held me back and made me resent others. For me to grow I needed to drop needing my ideas to be told they were good, I was looking for a thumbs up from everyone I met. I now stick my own fingers up to anyone that tries to de value my feelings and ideas. So how about we make our own line? There's always others in the world that will share your visions and passion, even your dreams. Find them and surround yourself with these kind of people.
