Motivational Monday? ♥ Being Self Confident

Hello my beauties! I felt like doing a kind of motivational Monday post today, I dunno--and I know for most of you that follow this blog who live in the UK, its technically Tuesday, but for me its still Monday haha. I wanna talk about confidence, because in today's society so many people aren't confident in themselves. I feel like many girls lack the confidence they need to live to their fullest potential, and its sad to see so many girls down on themselves.

Let me just start of by saying, you are all beautiful, no matter what anyone else says. There is a quote that says "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and right now that 'beholder' is you. Before anyone else can truly love you, you must love yourself--or so they say. But many girls almost refuse to love themselves, because they have imperfections. But nobody's perfect, so why stress yourself out trying to be?

I am a very brutally honest person, and I don't believe in wasting my breath trying to sugar-coat things, so I'm just going to tell you how I am. I am a very confident person. I don't know why honestly, because if I sit myself down I have an endless list of things I find wrong with my face, my body and my personality. But thats not what being confident is about. The reason I'm so confident in myself is because I stopped caring about what other people thought of me. I know its hard for many people to do, but sometimes you have to step back and ask yourself these questions about a situation:

"Is this moment right now going to affect my life in the long run?"

"Is this person going to matter to me 5 years from now?"

"Is this person's opinion more important than my own?"

I often ask myself these questions when I'm thrown into an uncomfortable situation or when someone else's opinion of me is thrown out. What you have to realize though is that other people's opinions of who you are don't really matter. These other people who are bringing you down, that you are forced to be with in work or at school don't care about you or your well being, so you shouldn't care abut their opinions. 

Your flaws don't define you and you shouldn't let them. You are all amazing and beautiful people! Walk around with the confidence that you know who you are and where you're going (even if you don't). And here I go again being honest, but if need be, fake it til you make it. Seriously. Act like you are the hottest, smartest, most sought out girl there is and people will start to believe it. And you will start to believe it. 

Thank you for reading! Have a lovely day xx
