Growing up is harder than imagined. But not necessarily for the reasons they tell you. Let's talk about the most confronting lesson of so-called "adulthood": changing in the eyes of the people who don't wish to see it.
I'm renowned by those close to me for being confident, but I haven't always been this way. It's been a mindset and an attitude I've developed over time with thanks to these three steps. Because life is better when you stop caring for people's judgements, as of today, I'm sharing my secrets.
