I was tagged to do the 6 selfies thing (gonna delete later…) by none other than my twin ourconsciences and the sweet gehirnwellen ❤️
I always have this “idc” poker face on BUT only when I’m alone 😏 look at my face when I’m with someone. Smiling is sunnah ☺️ when I’m with people even though I’m not in the mood I try to smile just to be polite 😁. Oh and yeah I only wear black 🌝 (unless those days when my mom begs me not to, which I will never understand but yeah)
So that’s my face. Those close to me already know it though. Anyways. 👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼
For those of you who would like to have less confidence, one way is to constantly read about how people think you suck. Or to hear people say stuff like “She’s just not a star.” And I hear that all the time. It’s especially hard, when you hear these things every day, to want to keep putting yourself out there. People’s reaction to me is sometimes “Uch, I just don’t like her. I hate how she thinks she is so great.” But it’s not that I think I’m so great. I just don’t hate myself. I do idiotic things all the time and I say crazy stuff I regret, but I don’t let everything traumatize me. And the scary thing I have noticed is that some people really feel uncomfortable around women who don’t hate themselves. So that’s why you need to be a little bit brave. | Mindy Kaling’s Guide to Killer Confidence
