I am extremely lucky that I have a close network of wonderful friends who have always got my back. Whether in Hong Kong or in UK, I know that these people will drop everything and help me when I need them. These people are the people I choose to have around me and just in… Continue reading Toxic Friends, Toxic People – Keep them out of your life!
To grow as a person, we must question the way we do things, we must question the things other people ask of us and we must live outside of the comfort zone. We must make mistakes and learn from them, in order to be able to understand how to improve the way we do things, just like in research.
It’s easy to get into the habit of comparing yourself to others. I do it, you do it, everyone does it. It doesn’t matter what you’re comparing, but whatever it is, you will never win. Someone will always be better than you in something, perhaps they are prettier, smarter, more popular, more intelligent, more successful,… Continue reading You’ll never win if you just compare
That’s what I tell myself I have to be everyday. Why? Well, why not? Sometimes life throws you curve balls, you could be smiling and happy one day, then confused and frustrated the next. I’ve been like this recently- there have been things on my mind, uni stuff, research stuff, personal stuff, relationship stuff. I’m… Continue reading Positive Positive Positive
So, I’m one of those people that always focuses on the things I don’t like about myself and I let those negative thoughts overwhelm me.
I look in the mirror and I don’t like what I see. Big shoulders, small chest, no shape, big thighs, bulky calves, short stumpy legs, the list goes on and on.
I let my life be dominated by all the things I hate about myself and forget that for everything I hate about myself, there is something that is good about me too.
The more I look at the bad, the less I think of the good and this obviously isn’t good for my confidence. If I can’t learn to love me for who I am, how can I hold my head up high and let others see me for me?
I am trying to forget those flaws now, and just focus on the things I do like about myself.
I like my eyes, I used to wear circle lenses, but I’ve noticed that I get more compliments when I don’t wear circle lenses than when I do.
I’m quite slim too, I always want to be slimmer and skinnier, but I’m actually already pretty slim. If I did try to lose any more weight I would actually be underweight.
So heres to me being positive about myself and not dwelling on the things that I can’t change. This is me and it’s not so bad.
I encourage you to start looking positive too! 🙂 This is what god/our family gave us so let’s start appreciating what we’ve got and be more confident with ourselves! 🙂
As it is my 22nd birthday today, I did a video this weekend to talk about some of the things I have learnt since I turned 20.. It’s OK to say No! – As someone that tries to be a ‘people pleaser’, I rarely say no. I always want to seem as if I’m keen… Continue reading Things I learnt in my 20s!
