Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends or alone.
I decided to share 5 of my personal goals that I would like to aim during 2022 cause I want to be at my best.
1, Be confident (building my self-esteem)
Being confident can be easy right? Definitely not! It can be easy for some people but for others like myself, it’s extremely hard. As a person who was bullied/targeted for years due to my differences, it’s difficult to be confident. To build that confidence, I have to practice self love and block those negative voices in my head and comments made from others.
2. I better find an internship/job
Since I recently graduated with BA (Hons), it’s been difficult to find an internship or a job in general; however, I have an interview next month which I am nervous about!
I’m currently studying a masters in digital marketing and analytics with at least a month or two in the industry, working at an agency or company.
Hopefully, I’ll have the motivation to search and apply for grad jobs and internships and actually get a job by summer 2022.
3. ignore what people say
When I was younger, I used to listen and believe what people used to say about me in terms of what music I listened to, how I dressed or even how I sat; but now, I try to not focus on what others say but instead, focus on what I am comfortable. I’ve learnt that the more I listen to what others say, the more I become self conscious, insecure and become mean to others.
4. Stop comparing and competing with others
I used to compare myself to other people when it came to grades, looks etc.
But as I got older, I realised that doing it can not only affect yourself but, others around you. It can ruin relationships with the people you love dearly and it can happen in either professional and personal environments .
I believe (in my opinion) happens between women that are in the same environment that are competing to see which one is the best due to many factors which is another topic to discuss.
To dismantle it, we need to uplift each other.
5. Remove negative people
When I realised that I had toxic friends or surrounded myself with terrible people, I had no choice but to remove myself to better my mental health.
These people that I call friends, didn’t really care about me, they only knew to talk behind my back and only used me when asking something that benefits them.
I realised that I didn’t have real friends until university and throughout my new friendships, I learned that friendships is based on the quality and treatment but not based on numbers and being one-sided.
Thanks for reading and unfortunately, this is my last blog post for the year but next year, I’ll post more content that is better than ever!
I feel like some of my blog posts for this year have been lacking in terms of the quality compared to last year and it’s because a lot has happened in my personal life, I hope you understand.
I hope this post inspires you to be a better version of yourself!
