Know your limits, boundaries and what you’re comfortable with surrounding COVID-19.
If you don’t feel comfortable going to family gatherings or getting together with friends, that is completely okay. Try your best to communicate this with your loved ones. The last thing you want, is to go somewhere because you feel pressured to, and then have anxiety about it afterwards when you begin to wonder if you were exposed to / exposed someone else to the virus unknowingly. Your true friends, and those who truly love you, will support your decision in this difficult time and want the best for you.
Talking about how I became a fashion designer, and ultimately, came to know Jesus along the way. I detail what it was like showing my collections on runways such as New York Fashion Week, and the advice I would’ve given myself earlier. When it comes to doing what you love, I share that you can love God and love people, no matter your vocation, your back story or what industry you decide to go into.
This doesn’t have to mean only using certain presets or only posting photos with certain colors in it. It just simple means that before you can use Instagram to leverage your personal brand, you have to identify what your personal brand is. And here’s a hint, you don’t have to be a business owner to have a personal brand….in fact, I believe we’re all our own personal brands every single day. Think about what colors, images, values, beliefs, fonts, places, food, objects, THINGS you want people to associate with you.
All in all, people pleasing is harmful because it will hold you back from doing what you truly want to do in life. It is not a sustainable way to live, and you will burn out. It will give you absolutely no benefits, because you can never please everybody.
