Why Does What I Do With My Life Concern You So Much?

1.7.18


My life is my life, no one else's.

The things I do have an impact on me, and those closest to me, only.

So, I guess I just find it baffling when people find it appropriate to preach to me what I should and shouldn't do.

"Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence."





This has been something that seems to have increased in the last year for me.

You see, when I started this blogging/Instagram/YouTube malarkey, I was a very different person. I was younger, less comfortable within myself, and wayyyy too concerned with what people thought of me.

Now, not so much.

I'm 4 years older, learning more and more about how to handle my mental health as the days go by, and I'm not that concerned about whether people love or loath me or not.

If you don't like me, you don't like me. As long as you aren't direct and nasty with me about it, I really don't mind.




"Acceptance of yourself is far more important than acceptance from others"

I think this is basically what people don't like, isn't it? People really don't like it when someone cares less sometimes. People want you to have some squeaky clean, pristine persona all the time, and, well, I'm sorry, but that wouldn't be showing you the 'real' me.

The real me swears, the real me likes to drink with her friends, the real me wants to look and feel hot in her underwear, and that's just it. I just want to be myself, do my own thing, and enjoy it.





If anything you do with your life affects someone purely only because you're not living up to their expectations of you, SO WHAT?!

All that matters is that you are happy with your choices, you're not hurting anyone by doing anything and you're enjoying your life.

Life's too short to worry about if 'Debra from Instagram' thought I was a 'nice girl', and now she's 'disappointed' because I'm posing in my underwear and drinking gin.

Like, f*ck you Debra.

"You've changed." - Yeah, I bloody well have, and I love it!

  2. holy molyyyy hol, these photos...especially the portraits, i'm in love with them!! not caring what people think and living life for ourselves, has been the hardest but biggest thing i've gotten stronger and better at over the years. it's so freeing and the most needed thing you can give yourself, is to let go and not give a damn what they think of you! xxxx
