MAK­ING THE MOST OUT OF THE SUM­MER

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - You, You, You -

From my fam­ily’s yearly trip to San Fran­cisco to hit­ting the beach, sum­mer is pretty much my fa­vorite sea­son. Ev­ery girl needs a bit of R&R, and trav­el­ing al­ways fills me up with joy. Es­pe­cially when it’s a place I’ve never been to be­fore. Walk­ing around dif­fer­ent cities is some­thing I love do­ing.

STAND­ING UP FOR YOUR­SELF/LEARN­ING FROM YOUR EX­PE­RI­ENCES

I know they say “for­give and for­get,” but that means al­low­ing your­self to let go of what hap­pens. I’m not say­ing that hold­ing grudges is a good idea, ’cause it’s not! Just don’t al­low your­self to be a vic­tim of the same situation or per­son twice or thrice. So I say, “For­give…but maybe it’s also good not to for­get.” Stand up for your­self! Don’t bot­tle things in.

HAV­ING REAL FE­MALE FRIEND­SHIPS

An­other thing I love and am most thank­ful about is meet­ing my Blog­ger Besties. It’s amaz­ing build­ing such an awe­some bond with such great girls! We’ve be­come such a tightly knit group that I don’t know what I’d do with­out them. We al­ways make it a point to be there for each other. Aside from that, when we give ad­vice, it’s real ad­vice. It’s only right!

HAV­ING A STRONG SENSE OF SELF

You can’t please ev­ery­one, and your past doesn’t de­fine who you are now. Over the years, I’ve learned that I should worry less about what peo­ple think or say about me. Don’t let the opin­ions of oth­ers con­sume you—peo­ple who talk bad about you just aren’t worth your time. So keep walk­ing. You do you—don’t look at your­self through the eyes of oth­ers. Be your­self.
