Self love would be a better title for this.
This is a huge topic for me because I hate when people dump on themselves.
“I get crazy sometime, so people don’t like me.”
Like damn ma, you’re very gorgeous to me
Don’t want to seem like I’m targeting ladies here but, I hardly hear any males bag on themselves. So ladies, love yourself, because there’s someone out there that doesn’t see those flaws as flaws. That’s where the saying, “There’s so many fish in the sea.” comes into play. Because to them, those special characteristics are going to be the thing that makes you attractive. To a point that those flaws becomes gains. Poor word choice there but you know what I’m getting at.
I’m pretty sure people thought I was a mute in the majority of my classes. Ya boy didn’t talk, at all. The main reason behind me not talking is that I was dumb. I didn’t know the material so I didn’t want to say anything and “expose” myself for being dumb. On a side note, when I got kicked out of school the first time, I actually had documents saying I had a learning deficiency. Milked that one in my appeal essay.
Anyways, I would come into class, especially if it was a class I didn’t know anybody in. I’d come in, sit down, and try my absolute hardest to try to understand the material the teacher was going over. I’m what you call a hands on learner, like I have to see the shit we’re going over. That would include examples and figures and all that good stuff. Like show me some interesting shit so I can actually learn what we’re talking about. But if you slap a 100 slide presentation on the computer and go over that in a 50 min class, I promise you, I’m retaining none of that information. But other dweebs would hit that shit in stride.
Then, oh man, when we would split up into groups to go over the information the professor just butchered in power-point. I’m sorry why is that a thing? Am I paying Tiffany and Aaron to teach me about Ethnic relations? Should I make the tuition check out to the local bar? Cause I watched Tiffany pound 12 shots of fireball last night and throw up in a urinal two hours later.
But group projects and all that were my worse nightmare. Until I realized that confidence is key. My last couple years in school I rocked those group projects, speeches, presentations, you name it bud. If you just go up there with confidence you’re golden. President Jackson would’ve gave me my degree right then and there if he would’ve sat in on one of my speeches. Cause you can be up there spouting out absolute horse shit. Like the earth is flat type of shit. If you get up there with confidence, people will actually start believing you. It got to a point where I was doing speeches for my brother. (Perks of being an Identical twin) Talk with confidence, get people laughing, and they won’t call you out on your bullshit.
The point I’m trying to get at is, Confidence is key. Not just in classes, I’m sure you guys will make it through school just fine. With all these creative ways to cheat. But with everything you do, be confident. I can’t stress that enough. Don’t flood your head with doubts and your own perception about your flaws. Wear your confidence on your shoulder.
That’s all I had for this post.
Stay Woke Y’all.
