Hey ya'll!! Here is my day 9 and 10 of my 30 day blogging challenge!!
Day 9: What do most people think about you that is absolutely not true?
I think this is a wonderful question, growing up wanting to be a singer was so difficult. Not only because of the nature of the business but because of the people who support you, act like they do, or the ones that are against you. That being said, in high school many people, some who didn't even know me, assumed that because I wanted to be a singer I thought I was better than everyone, and that I was conceited. This always bothered me so much for a couple of reasons, one being I was and still am extremely self conscious and struggle with being confident in myself, so people calling me self centered and conceited hurt me tremendously because they didn't understand my true struggle. Another reason this bothered me so much was because I always made it my goal and mission in life to make someone smile, feel good about themselves and to have confidence, so when people tried to say that I thought I was better than everyone else, that hurt me the most. If I ever made anyone feel that way, I will apologize until I can't speak anymore, but don't EVER let someone tell you that you're selfish, conceited or that you don't care about others feelings simply because you want to follow your dreams. Most people are intimidated by those who have the courage and strength to go after what they want so instead of encouraging these people, they try to knock them down. I try to practice what I preach by always supporting others dreams, and always taking the time to make someone else feel special, because they are.
Day 10: What should they teach you in high school that they don't?
I always thought that they should teach more relevant life skills, such as, different types of bank accounts, how to pump gas, how to deal with real life situations, etc..
Take some time to ask yourself, or maybe someone else these questions!!
