I will step out of my comfort zone.

Collage 2017-06-26 23_53_27

Today is a little different from my usual post because I just want to write out my mind. I also feel like I am level up so I want to share with you about where and how I gain those experience. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I always lack confidence and so caution about other people’s thoughts about me. I remember Iย used to hate myself when I back in elementary since I was the tallest and had a mad looking face. I am shy and no one approached me. I am a geek, and it was so hard for me to get in “group” too. I tried to fit in others and act like others. I was not happy. I never thought I am pretty and never got a compliment for my physical appearance before I meet my best friends from college. I never wear skirt or dress. I didn’t set up my hair or do makeup. I was scaredย to be special.ย I was too scared and kept thinking people talk bad about me. I know how people can be mean and rude since I heard the conversation in the restroom stall. (Joke) XD

Since I start blogging and receive a lot of nice words from my lovely readers, I decide to step out of my comfort zone. I start to dress up nicer and tie my hair more often. I start wearing accessories and lip balm. Today, I wear makeup to work. I was nervous and keep thinking what should I say if someone talksย about my makeup. And you already know, nothing happens. No one asksย me anything or looks at me differently. I just have a normal work day, and this makesย me realize that: No one gives a sh*t about my look except me!

I notice. Sometimes I just overthinking that I am so important and everyone cares about me. It sounds depressing, but it is true that I am not as important as I thought. Since I am not that important to other people, I decide I won’t care about them anymore. I will wear whatever I want and wear makeup whenever I like. Why do I have to care other people thoughts about my look? Especially, I just imagine things that don’t happen.

This is also my message to people who areย same as me. If you also care about what other people think about your look, say f*ck it. We needย to stop overthinking and just do what we want to do. We only have one life and time goes by fast. We shouldn’t do something that we will regret later. I will regret if I waste my youth and live under my imagination or others thought for rest of my life. Next time, I will do becauseย I want to not because I think people would want me to.

A lesson I learned: Do whatever your heart tells you to, let others eat sh*t.

    It’s not that you’re not important, it’s just that many people don’t place superficial things in high regard. My boyfriend always claims that I look the same with or without makeup… which is probably true. But I just sometimes feel like people won’t even recognize me without makeup but that’s just silly. I’m me! Remember that above all, don’t focus on pleasing others, it won’t bring true happiness.

      Thank you very much! I think I look the same with or without makeup. Of course, I like my makeup look better since I like flawless skin and colors. It is funny that how I care so much about how other people think about me instead of how I think about myself.

    Hi Maggie!
    I love how much confidence and sass you are exuding in this post! I can relate to you in a lot of ways. I do worry about what people think about the way I dress, my makeup and the way I wear my hair, but life really is too short to worry about what others think.
    It is up to us to live out loud and find joy in life. I am so happy that blogging has helped you build your confidence.
    Be Real. Be True. Be You!!!

    Wow! I love your post! It reinforces the feeling in me that all of us can be self-conscious about our appearances. I remember when I used to care when I wore makeup to school. Now I can wear it whenever I desire. Although, I still feel self-conscious about wearing cute and feminine fashion to school because it’s not exactly trendy.

      I felt the same. Now I just wear any cute and feminine fashion whenever I want to.
      I think even it is not on trend, it still so cute and bright my day. You may meet people who has same fashion interest too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think you look good with cute feminine fashion.

    This is truly a good lesson to learn ๐Ÿ™‚ Anything you do you should do for yourself, as long as it doesn’t affect others in a negative way!
