Fight the Inner Voices of Doubt and #StopTheBulong

Today on the blog, I take a little break from the usual fashion posts to share something personal and close to my heart.

My journey as a blogger hasn't always been easy and smooth sailing. I remember when I started out I wasn't even sure what I was doing. I just had a lot of ideas I wanted to share to others and someone had suggested, "Why not start a blog?" And so I did! But when you're unsure and uncertain about what you're doing, that's when the inner voices of self-doubt, fears, and insecurities are loudest and begin to work on you. 

I began to ask myself, "Why am I wasting my time blogging? What could I possibly gain from blogging in the future?" These questions haunted me and it didn't help that there were people who made it their mission to put me down, question my abilities, and say mean things about me.

You know what helped me get through all that? 

A strong support system and the realization that this was truly my passion! Once I was sure this was what I really wanted to do, I worked hard at getting better at it, making every experience an opportunity to learn, grow, and improve. And the more I learned, the easier it got to shut off those inner voices of doubt and insecurities! It also helped a lot that I surrounded myself with people who believe in me and who are there to support me!  A big NO to negative vibes! 

Now, I am nothing but grateful and blessed to have all these opportunities that are coming my way and it is all because I decided to #StopTheBulong and to continue to pursue and work on achieving my dreams!

How about you? Are there any inner voices of doubt that are stopping you from pursuing your dreams? Or have you already conquered those inner voices? Share your story, inspire others to #StopTheBulong, and you might just be one of the lucky 10 to win P25,000 worth of Topshop GCs for yourself and another P25,000 for someone you think deserves it!

  9. I think I talk about self-empowerment too much on my blog because I've experienced so much of these negative energy from people. Yes, I've been bullied and it's not the best thing but you can always make something beautiful out of all the hardships you've been through ♥
