I've definitely been on a kick about improving my confidence. To be honest, it's making me super happy and I'm done worrying about anything else. I've learned that no one can take advantage of me if I don't want them to. I am in complete control of my beautiful self. Don't hate on me because I'm pretty, nicer than you, or more successful than you. Get over it, sorry. Be happy for me. This song is purely amazing because it basically tells the world that you are who you are, and not to be envious.
I'm begging everyone who reads this article to take a step back, no matter what you are doing at this moment, and smile. Please be proud to be you and do not let anyone who is mean or intelligent ruin you. Because of my open and accepting personality, I've experienced issues with setting boundaries or allowing people to be rude to me. People can be extremely toxic. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and I'm going to keep growing.
Hard times do not last forever, even if it might feel that way. Yes, confidence is something that is sometimes really hard to achieve, but you can do it. Just within this past week, I've probably listened to this song on repeat about ten times a day. I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm doing what I need to do and no one can stop that. It's fun-loving yourself.
There is a lot of hate in this world, but what counteracts hate is confidence and pride in oneself. Listen to songs that pump you up and bring that exciting rush of good feelings into your veins. Do what you want to do. As Keri says in the song, "Jealousy is the ugliest trait". She's so right on so many levels. Be happy for everyone and keep blooming!
