How To Stop Caring What Others Think Of You!

Are they going to like me? Am I good enough? What if I mess up? You MISSY and MR need to stop giving a flying damn what others think of you and here's your guide on how to do exactly that!

Caring what other people think of you keeps you in a constant state of seeking approval and acceptance from others which makes you extremely unhappy and leads to you just not being who you are and doing what you love. People are going to judge, take the piss and say mean comments but you just got to laugh at yourself and say "Fuck it, I love who I am, what I do and what I wear!" You can't please everyone and why should you? It's YOUR life and the true people in your life will love you for who you are and you'll feel a lot happier being you. You don't need the approval of others, you just need to approve of yourself.

My Top 5 Tips On How To Stop Caring What Others Think Of You!

  1. Be and do what you love: Connect who you are and what you do and wear with reason, love, passion and emotion and the thought of what others think will die down because you just love what you do so much.
  2. Embrace you to the fullest: There's only one of you and your talents so embrace it and share it to the fullest.
  3. Be happy:  Be happy, don't worry... do do da da (Hehe I wrote do do ;D) You have one life, your life so don't let it be a miserable one based on what others may think. Be happy with your life!
  4. Laugh at yourself: I think laughing at yourself is such an important thing to do as it makes you more comfortable with who you are by realising you don't take yourself so seriously and you can have fun with yourself (haha get it ;D)
  5. Put a middle finger in the air:  You just have to be like "Fuck it, if people don't like me, what I do or wear, it's their problem not mine" You can't control others opinions, attitudes and judgements so just own all of yourself and be and do you.
Not caring what others think of you is a daily practise of choices to be you and is empowering, freeing and full of love, positivity and happiness. Be empowered by being you.

How To Cut Toxic People Out Of Your Life!

Sick of someone disrespecting you? Being hurt over and over again by that same person? Here is your guide on how to cut toxic people out of your life!

At some point in your life you will come across toxic people whether in friendships, relationships, family, work colleagues or flatmates, people who drag you down, point out your flaws and openly hurt you. Sometimes it's easy to cut these people out of your life and well sometimes it's not. I believe keeping toxic people in your life or the " toxic fire burning" comes from your own self hatred, insecurities and fear which becomes a vicious cycle if not broken in which it destroys your mind, body and soul in every way.

Toxic people themselves are stuck in self hatred which reflects by their actions, words, mind games and manipulation. It's not your fault or responsibility for them acting, saying and doing the things they do, it is their responsibility. However you do have the responsibility to respect yourself, unless you respect yourself no one else will and by letting someone treat you like sh!t you are giving them permission to continue treating you that way. You have a choice to say "I am worth more and deserve better than this" "I'm better off alone than letting someone treat me like this" "I know that there are people out there that will treat me with respect". You have the choice and power to create your own respect and worth by taking action and walking.

Just as you have to make that choice they too have a choice to seek help for their issues and no one can do that but them. You can't help someone until they choose to help themselves. I don't believe toxic people are bad people but people that need help but as I said a choice they have to make which will be whenever they are ready however you should by no means stick around and let yourself be disrespected and hurt time and time again. Stand up and be your own hero of self love, respect, worthiness and freedom!

My Top 5 Tips To Cut Toxic People Out Of Your Life!

  1. Tell the person: Be open, honest and non aggressive with them and tell them why you no longer wish to be in their lives, for some people you can do this in person for others you may need to do it in text. *There however maybe certain situations where you do not wish to contact the person but instead just cut them out and move on, your gut instinct will let you know.  
  2. Delete any contacts: Delete phone numbers, email address etc. If needed change your number and email address.
  3. Delete and block them off social media: Delete and block the person from any social media, this also helps stop any snooping or obsessing on either sides which yes we are all prone to at some point but is unhealthy and doesn't let you move on.
  4. Do not make contact: I know it can be hard but do not make any further contact with the person as this is just letting them walk right back in again. If they contact you ignore them, do not try and seek revenge or hurt them in any way as this will just snowball into a massive mess that you really don't want. Just ignore and walk away...fully trying to make a spray and walk away joke ;D. *If someone is harassing you please seek legal help.
  5. Move on: Well done you have just respected yourself! Remember every thing happens for a reason and growth and knowledge comes from it. It's now time to move on, meet new people, spend time alone, pick up new hobbies and love yourself with every part of your soul.
You have the power and choice to respect yourself and to create your worth, it can be a hard choice but a worth it one and you deserve to be surrounded by people who love and care for you just as much as you love and care for them.

How To Forgive Yourself!

Holding on to past mistakes? Still blaming yourself over something you had no control over? Here is your guide on how to forgive yourself!

Forgiving yourself is such an important thing to do to let go of any hate, hurt, blame, mistakes and to learn, grow and move forward. By holding on to past mistakes and blame you strengthen your negative belief system and inner critic so the next time something happens your inner critic comes in and all you can hear is "I'm not good enough" "I'm worthless" "I'll never get anything right" "I'm just so stupid".

By forgiving yourself you learn to understand that you do make mistakes and that's ok and you also learn that making mistakes is knowledge and you know that you can approach a situation differently if something similar comes up again, over time you blame your self less for things that are out of your control and you grow a little more from each situation.

I personally blamed myself for getting sick with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome when I was a child and that my Mum had to give up her job to look after me. I felt like it was my fault for getting sick and if I hadn't gotten sick my parents wouldn't of had to give up what they did to look after me.

After writing a letter to myself as a child when I was in recovery I realised for the first time that there was nothing I could of done to stop myself from getting sick. This was a huge revelation and helped to heal a part of my pain but I still felt this hurt that my parents sacrificed a lot for me and that I would never be able to repay them.

One day I bought it up with my counsellor and she said "Ask yourself what are the good things that came out of it? We will always look at the bad in the situation but not the good" "For starters you wouldn't have the strong, loving and supportive bond with your parents that you do now". This was another huge revelation for me and one that I never truly thought of like that before but was also very true. She also told me we forget the beauty and simplicity of saying I love you and that it is one of the greatest gifts we can give to others. She also bought up that eventually my turn to help my parents will come around and that giving my knowledge and helping others is also a way to pay them back for the way they have helped me.

By now you'll properly thinking who is this wise and angel of a woman?!?! and yes she is truly that! I have taken what she said on board and every time I see, speak or text my parents I tell them "Love you! :) xoxo" for the amazing and blessed relationship we share and when the time comes when they need help I will do my very best to do so. I also like to pass my knowledge on through this blog and when people speak to me when their in a dark place or need help. All of this helped to me to forgive myself for a very big and long time of blaming myself and many beautiful flowers have come to flourish from it.

My Top 5 Tips On How To Forgive Yourself!

  1.  I deeply and completely love, forgive and accept myself: Tell yourself, say it out loud, write it down... even if you don't believe it, say it... you need to hear it!
  2. What have you learnt? Write down or think about what have you learnt from your mistake or the situation. What would you do differently if a similar situation came up again?
  3. The good things: What good things have come out of it? Could be you know what NOT to do next time or what you should do next time, a stronger bond with someone, something you need to change in your life? etc.
  4. Apologies: If other people are involved make the appropriate apologies to the people you need to. Do it in person.
  5. I deeply and completely love, forgive and accept myself: Tell yourself again, say it out loud again, write it out again because you need to hear again!

Forgiving yourself is important to learn, grow and move forwards it will help you to heal and bring flourish to beautiful flowers!
