Don't Hide Who You Are In Fear Of Other's Opinions



Why is it that we care so much about what other people think?

Why is it so hard to not care?

This is something I struggle with.  Sure, I have my moments where I say to myself, "Why do their opinions matter?" but that only lasts for a minute. I wish that moment could last forever because I have to realize that opinions that do not belong to me DO NOT matter. The only one that matters is our own!

With social media, I think it's worse because we seek validation. Our self worth is based on likes and comments. When our friends have more likes on a photo than we do, it's disappointing because, of course, we are worthy of having those same amount of likes, if not more. So, why aren't we getting the same attention? No matter if you have 0 likes or a million likes, you're still the same person. You're still YOU. Try not to let it get to you. Easier said than done, but the least you can do is try.

I find myself posting things online and I'll think that it will make me look weird or that people will be annoyed of me, but at the end of the day, I'm just being authentically me. I shouldn't have to hide who I am to please others.

Take my advice:

-If you want to post pictures of yourself online because you feel good, do it.
- If you want to post a silly video or picture of you and your friends, but fear judgement, do it.

Sure, people are going to make their remarks or think negatively, but that's on them, not you.

Royal Caribbean: Allure of the Seas experience

I just came back from my week long cruise on the Allure of the Seas and let me tell you, this was such an amazing cruise ship! If I could bring every single person on this planet on this cruise ship, I would. I had such a fun time with my family and created new friendships and that's the beauty of cruises, they bring everyone together.

Central Park:  So, they had a "central park" on the ship and that was probably one of my favorite parts of the ship. (The photo above is me in front of the entrance). It had restaurants, stores, string lights, a Rising Tide bar, and picturesque plants and statues.

Cruise Activities:  There were so many things to do on this ship that you could never be bored. Clubs, zip lining, FlowRider, carousel, ping pong, mini golf, basketball, pool, karaoke, zumba, spa, musicals,  comedy shows, shopping, the casino and more! Seriously, you have something to do at all times, including eating copious amounts of food.

Dining:  Ok, so I wasn't thoroughly…

10 Questions From Pretty Little Liars We Still Want Answers To

The series finale of Pretty Little Liars left everyone with mixed reactions, but mostly I've seen some angry comments and many were disappointed with how it ended. Still so many plot holes and after 7 years, you would think we have all of our questions answered. Here are 10 questions we still want answers to:



1. What happened to Aria's brother?

2. Why wasn't he at the wedding?

3. Why did the horse figure out it wasn't Spencer before her own friends?

4. When Ezra first met Aria at the bar, he knew she was Ali's friend. Did he know Aria's true age then or did he not find out that Ali was a teenager?

5. What happened to Melissa?

6. How did Spencer kill Wren?

7. Did Alison and Emily find out that Wren is the father of their children?

8. Who was Bethany Young?

9. Who was "he" when the girls came running into Ali's classroom saying "he's coming".

10. Who kidnapped the girls during the Dollhouse episode?



I'm really upset about the endi…

Ryan Seacrest Spotted With An Old Flame

Credit: WENN

Ryan Seacrest was spotted with his ex-girlfriend Shayna Taylor in Venice going for a bike ride. Shayna is a model and personal chef, so she's not only beautiful, but very successful. The possible couple broke up 2 years ago, but it looks like things may be back on. They were all smiles while out on the town with their bikes and even stopped for a bite to eat. It's reported that Shayna was his date to a friend's wedding over Thanksgiving weekend.
