“She’s up herself” and “Fake” are words that I have heard about myself probably a little too often. I’m not a nasty person, nor am I someone who likes to kick over the beehive. I am however, someone who is very happy to speak their mind.
I hate to break it to you but I’m confident in my own skin and genuinely couldn’t give a f**k about what you think of me.
Unless you’re my partner, a friend or a family member – I couldn’t care less about your thoughts. After all everyone is entitled to their own opinion and what you say about me, is none of my business.
In fact, the last thing I want to do is care about what people think of me, because nine times out of ten, I don’t even think about them at all! Of course, constructive criticism is something I will always be happy to listen to. But if you’re a troll or someone I barely know, I’m afraid your opinions are going to have to jog on!
Despite my ability to just not give a f**k I am always shocked to watch people walk themselves down the path of failure, all because they don’t want to be hated or jeopardise their reputation. People who care about what other people think of them are just wasting their own time. Why live your life bothered by what society thinks?
Of course, there is no hiding from the fact that Society will always want us to conform and people will always be quick to squash someone’s self-satisfaction. Think about it – how many times have you witnessed people shoot down someone’s success? I know I have. It’s like people choose to believe confidence is the same as arrogance. When in reality, there is a huge difference between the two!
Confident people embrace others.
An arrogant person believes that they are better than most people and are quick to tear others down. A confident person embraces others and wants people to succeed. They like to surround themselves with similar and open-minded people who also enjoy celebrating someone’s success.
Confident people have respect for others.
An arrogant person loves to be negative and preach to anyone who wishes to listen. A confident person has respect for others and believes that everyone is on the same level.
Confident people laugh at their own weaknesses.
Arrogant people often fight their corner with fire and refuse to own up to their mistakes. Confident people are almost impossible to break because they are satisfied with their failures, as they see it as a part of growing.
Confident people believe in themselves.
Arrogant people will tell you how good they are, whereas confident people will let their success speak for themselves.
Cofident people don’t give a f**k about society rules.
Just imagine if Emmeline Pankhurst had given a f**k – she definitely wouldn’t have led the suffragette movement and us ladies wouldn’t have the entitlement that we have today. So if you are a fierce female – keep doing your thing and continue to not give a f**k.
However if you are a person who does give a f**k about what others think, here’s some advice that you should definitely consider…
Don’t give a f**k about being different.
Be comfortable with being indifferent. Why be a sheep when you can be a ram?
Those f**kers have nothing better to do.
“A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people’s business.” – Eric Hoffer.
At the end of the day you’re going to win some and lose many.
This is my everyday mantra. You’re not always going to be every one’s cup of tea but as long as you stay true to yourself, you will fly. Trust me.
If people are giving a f**k about you, then you must be doing something right!
