All About You
Done with dating drama? Be your own crush!
Tired of constantly working up the nerve to talk to your crush, only to find out he or she is a bit of a...dud? Or maybe you're just sick of the nonstop guy gossip in your group of friends. Whatever the motivation, it's time to step back and focus on what's really important: Y-O-U.
Why not be your own crush? All the good things you might try to do to catch your crush's eye (like dressing well, working extra hard on the stage or the court and being generally open and friendly) are just as important when you're trying to impress yourself. Check out some of our fave self-love moves below...
If you want to shake things up, try new things that you haven’t done. You’ll find that there are certain things you’ll love doing...and there will be other things that you completely hate. Either way, you're walking away with tons of new experiences.
Conquer your fears.
We all have those small things that we are terribly afraid of, like spiders or public speaking or even just talking to cute guys and girls, but it can be fun and exciting to work to overcome those fears. Try doing one (safe!) thing that scares you every day. You'll feel stronger and more confident than ever.
Follow your dreams.
Every girl has a dream, a goal, a vision, a fantasy or an amazing idea. Start taking the necessary steps to make it a reality. Being successful and going after you want is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Even if it seems overwhelming, take small strides. You've got this!
Have some by-yourself fun.
Go to the movies solo, treat yourself to a nice mani/pedi, get some ice cream... Whatever makes you smile or feel that little tingle of happiness, you should do more often. If you can make yourself happy, you're the luckiest girl in the world.
