Self Love

Hi Beauties,
I hope you are all having a wonderful week.
I was listening to one of my favourite Podcasts yesterday morning (let me know if you want me to do a podcast review!) by Emma Gannon called, Ctrl, Alt; Delete and her guest, Sheri Scott, said something that has stuck with me ever since, "I'm like marmite, and I am okay with that." By Marmite, she meant that some people will like her and some people won't. 

This is something I struggled with all my life until I reached my late twenties. I always wanted people to like me and felt really upset if they didn't. I would even hold back my true thoughts and feelings if it meant someone not liking me. I soon discovered I wasn't going to get anywhere in life living like that, so I started doing and saying what I wanted and it was amazing.
I know I am a cool chick, but, I also know I can be incredibly loud and annoying and that doesn't gel well with some people. I have come to realise that no matter what you do, there will ALWAYS be people that just don't like you and sometimes there is nothing you can do about it.
You know what I say to those people? "Your loss!" I may be loud and annoying but I love those around me like family and will genuinely go out of my way to help people. I know this and those around me knows this.
I felt inspired to write about this today because I've noticed a couple of my extraordinary friends are too scared to speak up because they are concerned about what other people might think. I want to take this moment to say, you are amazing, you are enough and it's okay to be yourself. There is no one else like you in this world. Own it.
