Hey bloggers 🙂 Apologies for not posting a blog in a Long time ! . Hope you’re all well 🙂
I recently bought a book ( Not an e-book but an actual book with pages !!) from Demi Lovato , anyone heard of her ? I’m sure you have. The book is called Staying Strong 365 days a year and basically it has famous quotes then Demi’s reflection on that quote for that day and she adds a little goal for you for the day. It truly is an inspirational book filled with some amazing quotes and goals !. I will add a link to her book here Demi Lovato – Staying Strong 365 Days A Year I think it gives you a page or 2 of the book for you to read :)!
Every night I always read the next days page right before going to bed and here is tomorrow’s page ( December 9th)
The quote is from her song Warrior from her latest album Demi. It’s said to be a follow up song from her hit single Skyscraper and the lyrics in both songs are so inspirational!. Getting back to tomorrow’s page, She wrote the song to help so many people who are going through a bad time and just to remind them
That it does get better . Many of us ,everyday, walk down town or even read and see pictures on Facebook or Twitter and make fun of what we see … Not knowing how that person feels ,or what that person is going through. I always try and think twice before making a prejudgement of what I see and hear and consider what that other person must be going through, for example, if you see a picture of a guy/girl who may be over weight most of us will make fun and insult right ? Well maybe that person has a medical reason as to why he/she cannot lose weight and gets picked on everyday for something she can’t change!. So what I ask from
You today is to think before you judge and consider the other persons feeling and situation.
Oh and check out Demi’s album because it is amazing !! If you need to contact me for whatever reason feel free so by sending me an e-mail via my contact page located on the tab above or just click HERE.
🙂 Goodnight bloggers x

So I know I’ve written about stereotypes before in my blog. I think “Social Labels” is a topic I feel strongly about because it deals so much damage to a person’s mind and self-esteem,however we are all to blame for this because one way or another we all contribute into giving others labels. How you ask ? – Not me ! you say. Most of us do it unknowingly maybe some sort of natural reaction in our minds?.
How many of you walk down town alone with your music on whilst day dreaming ?. Many of you I imagine, but all of a sudden you see this guy with the tightest pair of pants, make-up on and a fur coat . Most of you, in your head will say “Omg,he’s gay” or the erm “not so nice” people would think ” What a Fa**t”,sadly it does happen. How many of you see a person in McDonald’s having a large meal and that person just happens to look over weight. How many of you think to yourself ” She needs a diet” or any nasty comments you may share with friends or keep to yourself without knowing whether or not this person as an underlining health condition that will not allow her to lose weight. I am also guilty of this from time to time but then I complain when I hear others giving people a label. It infuriates me but am I no better ? Do I not have those thoughts ?. Sure I don’t act on them and I will NEVER laugh at someone’s expense but I think those things at times. Is it normal ? At the end of the day we should control our thoughts. Maybe we label others in order to feel better about ourselves,boost ourself esteem and confidence.
I Am single, so I am labelled as being Single fair enough, does it stop there ? NO! as most people will carry on as to why they THINK I am still single. Well bloggers here is a little secret of my own that I will share with you on why I am single. I love being single, I do not desire being in a relationship. Why force something when my mind and heart are not asking for it ?. I let everything take its course, I dislike it when you hear people who are “looking” and by looking I mean desperately looking for another half. Sure being interested in someone is nothing wrong ,by far! What I mean here is those who jump from relationship to relationship just for the sake of it. I like my “freedom” and my space. Besides if I were to get into a relationship most of my blog posts would be less interesting (assuming you all find this interesting :)).
The worse label at the moment in today’s society is being called “GAY”. Let me just express how much that kills me inside that in the year we are in people are still being bullied over their sexual orientation . Something that is beyond their control and at the end of the day its a part of who they are. How many teens commit suicide because they can no longer handle the pressure of keeping the secret or because they are being bullied and they suffer in silence. For those of you in this current situation there is a project called the “It Gets Better Project” that I will link at the end of this post. Apart from that if you need anyone to talk to remember my contact page is at the top and feel free to use it!.
My conclusion is – We all hate being labelled! but how many times a day do we label someone without knowing we are doing so ?. Can we try to change this in our lives ? I think so. Keeping those thoughts to yourself and not acting on them will better you as a person and may help others to.
