    Wonderful motivating post, every woman must read this.
    I think I usually hesitate to take risks and I need to work on that.

      Thank you Megala! For a while now I’ve been trying to take more risks, but I could probably always take more. There’s still things I shy away from but I guess one step at a time 🙂

    I love this post! Us girls really need to learn to support each other more often and to believe in ourselves. I know it’s easier said than done and I personally struggle a lot with being confident in myself. I’m often pessimistic and see things a lot worse than they really are. That’s why I sometimes shy away from standing up for myself. I hope your tips can help me improve 🙂

    One of my uni professors said that the pay gap exists because girls are not confident enough to ask for a higher pay whereas men like to take a risk and suggest a number that is probably too high. It made me really angry to hear that but I think he might be right.
    Thanks for sharing this Laura xx

      Thank you! I think it’s a habit to naturally be pessimistic towards yourself. It probably sounds weird, but sometimes it helps to look at a situation pretending it’s someone else.
      I’ve read that about the pay gap as well. Women are less likely to ask. It must be something to do with how we’re raised in society because it’s a global issue. It’s a shame to think two people can be doing the same job but one can be earning more.
      Thank you for reading. xx

    Great tips girl! Yes, women need to start supporting and uplifting each other instead of competing with one another and I really hope that changes. Awesome post ❤️

    I seriously struggle with my self-confidence, and so this post was absolutely perfect for me! A great reminder for me to stay strong and believe in myself. Not only that, but to try to look more at the positives vs the negatives. Great post xxx

      Thank you Melina! I think looking at negatives is such an easy habit but it’s so destructive. It’s something I’m always working on. xxx

    I love that in all of your posts, instead of just claiming some random thoughts or opinions, you actually back them up with research. I feel like ones background research is often so underrated and I can really tell that you put a lot of time and effort into your posts. Thought I’d just let you know that I really appreciate it, I’ve definitely taken a lot of inspiration from you in that regard. xx

      Thank you!!!I’m glad you appreciate that. Unless I’m writing a personal post, I feel I have to research otherwise I’m out of my depth. Especially with some of the topics I discuss. xx
