Spread the Love: Andrea’s Choice
Andrea is CLEARLY the people Choice! Did you like that play on words? *LOL* If you don’t know who Andrea’s Choice is you are either (a) New to the internet or (b)… shoot I can’t even give you a “B” because there isn’t a reason why you shouldn’t know Andrea. She is a fantastic Beauty Guru on YouTube. Yes, as your guys know, I don’t wear makeup… but I am subscribed to her because I love her voice, quality of filming, and her personality (and it doesn’t hurt that she’s super hot with or without make-up).
Andrea has the same “I don’t’ give a Fuck what you think about me attitude” as I do. Having this type of mentality, but still being able to produce unconditional love is a trait that is learned, not born with. What I really love about the feature video is the fact that Andrea is both honest and candid about her high school years. I believe that anyone starting high school should definitely listen to this video 100 times over because it discusses the ever growing issue of bullying.
Bullying is not going away anytime soon. It’s just the nature of the beast, especially when you’re in high school. Andrea discusses with us how the bullying affected her and how she effectively choose how to handle it. She explains,
“… you are not the problem… there are no levels of worth… no human is worth more than others.”
This statement is more than true. We are all equals. We are all born, eat, shit, bath, and pass. You are no different than the next. The next person is not different than you. Once you understand your self-worth, you will be unstoppable. Don’t let anyone place a value on your worth. At the end of the day, we are all priceless.
“For people to talk about you they have to notice you” says Andrea. For anyone to notice you, there is a value on you. When bullies harass you they recognize something in them they don’t have and want to extract it out of you. That, my friends, is called jealousy. “They can be doing anything in the world, but they are obsessing over you.” If you were really worthless… why would they give you the time of day to say anything negative to you? That’s because you’re not worthless.
“Some people are negative because they have a lot going on in their life… some people like to transfer negative feelings on to others, and that makes them feel better.”
Sucking the life and your energy out makes bullies feel better because they now feel they are more powerful than you. NEVER LET ANYONE TAKE YOUR POWER. NEVER BECOME INFERIOR TO OTHERS. If this person is focused on you. Ask yourself why. I will guarantee you that is has NOTHING to do with you. They need an outlet and they picked you for whatever quality that you posses they don’t have.
- Are you “nerdy” and get bullied?
- Do you dress different and get bullied?
- Are you a guy in drama and you get bullied?
- If people are bullying you because you’re a “nerd”, they see and recognize your potential and ever growing success. If you’re intelligent OWN IT. ROCK IT. RUN WITH IT. People love that.
- If you dress different, they see that you are strong and play the rules according to how you see fit. You don’t follow the status quo. Some people just hate that you aren’t scared of that. Since you’re not and they are, they want to bully you out of it.
- If your a man doing something different, they are again scared of your courage to step out and be who you want to be. This isn’t the wizard of OZ and it’s not your fault they want to play the Cowardly Lion in your play.
Instead of crying about being bullied really analyze what is it that they are trying to bully out of you. Once this bully sees you deteriorating from their harassment they aren’t going to stop. You will need to stand up to it and conquer this tyrant.
But if you take any one thing from this video just , “Be positive.”
Have a great weekend, and remember to Spread the Love,
