Hug a teddy

Dear Optimists,
Every day we struggle to find happiness and boost our self-esteem. We build optimism gradually, with willpower and, of course, smiles.
But years of work can be destroyed in a single night. A single phrase, commen or facial expression can shatter every self-confidence we have and drown our good mood into a storm of negativity.
Yes, it’s hard to stay optimistic. But it doesn’t mean we should give up. We should start to build everything again… but not without support and affection, which can effectively come from a hug – with a huge fluffy teddy bear!!!
So who said that lonely people could not have a hug as well?
In hard times, teddy bears (or whatever teddy animal you love) can really help. Believe a 16-year-old teenage girl. Haha.
So next time you’re sad, hug a teddy bear. It’s the next best thing to a hug from a loved one!
Love,
An Evil Nymph.

Guest Post Wednesday: Stereotyping

Dear Optimists,

The thing that drives me crazy is that sometimes, I cannot stand judgmental people! I have been judged many times throughout my life. Here are some rather funny examples:

Distant-Relative-I-Have-Never-Met: So, you are metro, right?
Me: Why would you say that? *confused*

Kid-Of-Family-Friends: Are you emo?
Me: No… LOL, are you? *confused*


Me: My sister says I lack common sense.
A-New-Friend: She is right, you do…
Me: Huh? *confused*

Stranger: You are probably always studying since you are brown.
Me: Actually, I wish I was the stereotypical smart brownie. Instead I spend most of my time blogging.
Stranger: *Confused*
Me: *Confused even more*

These are only a few of the incidences I can think of right now. But at the end, there is always something to laugh about.

Stay positive, people!
Love,
