Don't Judge me, THIS IS ME



If you know me personally or if you are following me via my personal FB, you would know that I’m a typical crazy-“walang ka-arte –arte” lady. (walang ka-arte-arte eh ang a-arte ng pictures mo! Wala ka pang ginawa kung di magpalit ng kulay ng buhok!)  I am the “what you see is what you get” type of girl. (Really now, eh ang plastic ng itchura mo!)

Don’t want to believe it? It’s okay, I don't blame you.

I know and expect that already because I am one of those girls who are often times judged by many.  

This was almost the same time last year when I took the courage to color my hair with a bold color.

"This is the color that I like and so I took the chance."

Does it hurt to be judged? Ofcourse yes! (OO naman! Pero Namanhid na ako.)
Although sometimes, being judged still affects me. That’s why I used to be so conscious about what others would say and think of me. There came a time that I felt my every move has to have a certain standard so as to appear perfect to everyone.



But I got exhausted. I got tired. I hibernated.


I think I have already encountered people from all walks of life ~ (from young to old, negosyante, employedo, kapos sa buhay, mayaman, owner ng company, taong rumaraket-raket lang, user-friendly, out of school youth, politiko, artista, sugarol, driver, tindera, tambay, oportunista) you name it! Bottomline is it’s so tiring to please everyone because believe me, one way or another, they would still see and have something to throw on you (meron at meron pa din masasabi sayo) no matter how hard you try to be so kind and appear to be perfect (‘cause ang daming echosera sa mundo).


When I started my journey in blogging, that’s when I get to further realize and started to tell myself that I am not suppose to live with a lie just to please someone. (sarili mo lang naman ang niloloko mo pag ginawa mo yan) I know, all the more I should be extra conscious now because I’m in this industry, but still I chose to do what is right. I chose to do the right thing for my own good because trust me, ITO YUNG DAPAT. 



"ONE OF THE BEST DAYS IN YOUR LIFE IS WHEN YOU STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT EVERYONE THINKS OF YOU AND START CARING ABOUT BEING YOURSELF"




Right now, I surround myself with positive people and try to stay away with the negative ones. I am proud to say that I already learn the art of not caring about what others think of me. That, it is the GREATEST way to move ahead and go on with my life. 


How about you? Do you live a life full of lies just to please everyone?

  3. Way to go girl! We can never please everyone and it's tiring and exhausting to try. As long as we are not hurting anybody, I think it's best to be ourselves. We can't truly find happiness unless we are at peace with ourselves.

    ps. Love the hair color! I got the lie locks (purple) from manic panic but too sissy to actually use it! LOL

  13. Great post, girlie! It's been noted that 10% people we will ever meet will not like us for no reason at all. They just won't. With that, we can't focus on being everything to everyone or focusing on what others think about us because at the end of the day, they don't live our lives for us, we do!

    You look fabulous sporting that ombre turquoise hair, btw; love it! I hope you have a great day, beauty!
