The older I get the more I realize that I am a total people pleaser. And that’s all good and all but it becomes a problem when the person, or group, you are trying to please is not aligned with what you’re trying to do in life—meaning, that person is not suppose to shape your life based on HIS/HER opinion on what is “right” or what makes sense to them. And I’ve come to realize—and it’s been a tough realization—that a lot of the things in life I’ve missed out on, opportunities or what have you, have been in large due to others opinions about those missed opportunities. What will they say? What will they think? My family, will they support me? Will my “friends” still like me? What if they don’t get me? What if I’m not good enough? And the list goes on. So all this time the world has missed out on ME—the authentic ME—simply due to the fear of not pleasing others and in turn doing what they think I should do instead of following my gut. Afraid of being rejected or “denied” acceptance because I didn’t do the thing that is the social norm. 💡
I guess in retrospect I stopped caring a bit ago but part of me still has the “please everyone syndrome” from time to time and that’s when I become the most unauthentic version of ME, hence, the most unhappy. And that is the saddest thing EVER! To lose the true essence of who YOU are in exchange for a like, in exchange to be told “you’re doing the right thing” even though deep down inside you know it’s not right for you!! 📝
It’s really time to proclaim the TRUE, the RAW essence of YOU! 🦋What drives you? What makes your heart & soul SING? Grab on to that, have faith, do the work, and go!!!! 🙏🏼👣
And you don’t need to apologize to ANYONE! Those that truly love you will get over you not doing the thing they feel you should do and they’ll eventually support you! ✨

In life, there is no better policy than being true to who you are, because you are fearfully and wonderfully made! You have So much to offer this wonderful world. .
👩🏽🎤 It’s no secret I love wearing things that are out of the ordinary.... and every day I get more courageous and explore more and more who I am through my wardrobe!
😘 Always, always be you, don’t worry about what others will say, life is too short #beyou #wearwhatyoulove #bebrave #becourageous #lafashion #streetstyle #stylerisks #upcycledclothing #girlyfashion
Defeitos, aquilo que muitos receiam falar... Mas faz parte de nós
São muitos os meus defeitos eu admito. A minha frontalidade prevalece sobre mim eu digo aquilo que penso sobre algo ou alguém sem medos, se não querem ouvir o que eu tenho a dizer não perguntem.
Quanto ao meu temperamente, não respondo por ele, é um pouco ríspido.. para a conveniência das pessoas. Não esqueço com facilidade o que as pessoas me fazem,não esqueço os insultos, as injúrias, os disparates e o mal que fizeram contra mim, uma vez marcados acabou. Sou calculista e frio, meus sentimentos não se manisfestam facilmente por alguém.Sou muito vingativo e filho da puta para quem o merece.
Mas quem me perde uma vez, perde me para sempre.

I would never let y’all drink bad coffee...cuz I love ya so much!!! Hope y’all are having a great day!
So I've been seeing this a lot lately. And I know social media is the queen of edited photos and sometimes can seem a little intimidating. I get it. Bc of this, everyone wants to let the world know that they use no filter. I've seen about 5 girls these past two weeks letting her social media followers know that she does not need such thing. Which is completely fine. Most of your favorite celebrities have used a filter in some way shape or form in their lifetime. Most makeup artist use a smoothing tool to make their makeup looks appear cleaner. Even if they tell you they don't.. yes I use filter. Most of my photos are smoothed. But I am in no way shape or form scared to say it. I get you not having a filter is your way of showing the world that you're secure within yourself. But are you really? Is you telling everyone that you're not using a filter proving anything? Or just to make yourself feel better? Bc I'm sure no one cares if you were going to use a filter or not. & I'm sure using a filter or not using a filter doesn't make you any better than anyone else. How weird would it be if I hash tagged all of my photos #FILTERED
.. weird. That's why I only show non filtered photos on my snap story of my work. So y'all don't get the wrong idea. My work still slaps. 😁 Half the time some of you guys can use it. It's not always a bad thing. humble yourself. And stop worrying about what everyone else says.. and post your picture for you. Not bc Sandy has extremely edited photos and you're trying to prove a point. With that being said.. enjoy this non filtered photo of me. I'm just as normal as you guys. My face isn't perfect. No ones is. Even w that lil snap filter that you aint claiming sis. Sorry to break it to you... but I'm not half bad without a filter. I know some of yous were hoping for the worst. 😉 if there's one thing I'm for.. it's allowing y'all to be whoever it is you want.

Be kinder to yourself. Be kinder to others.
We have so many addictions in society right now. We are addicted to drama, especially in politics. We are addicted to technology. We are addicted to being right. We are addicted to being busy. We are addicted to status. We are addicted to winning.
Through all of this addiction, we are simply seeking validation. We are seeking something to align with to feel important.
But in reality, each one of us is important and valuable on this earth. We don’t need to do or be anything extraordinary.
A smile, a thank you, a hug. It’s simple and priceless. It brings joy to everyone.
Lately I’ve been wracking my brain to come up with some huge thing that would have this amazing positive impact on people’s lives. Since I was little I’ve had this huge desire to help others, to change the world. I haven’t thought of anything brilliant yet. Maybe someday I will, but for now I send out peace to you, no strings attached. 🕊

Feeling lonely can hurt SO much. You are not alone, you are the Universe! What we can do to help ourselves when feeling lonely is to remind us that we are enough, loved and appreciated! Keep doing your best, you are doing very well!
Be yourself, everyone else is taken friend!
Some of us suffer from anxiety or panic attacks. Food with tryptophan like bananas can help. Putting our focus on our breathing can help. Learning to let go and not identify with our thoughts also! Have a wonderful day, Instagram!
