Because brave Candy Girls are not afraid to speak their mind.

Being a Candy Girl is being a lot of things–smart, confident, beautiful, and more importantly, brave. But what if your bravery is only limited to doing things out of your comfort zone and stops when you need to speak and stand for yourself? Our girl Sara Bareilles said it best, "say what you want to say, and let the words fall out." We list down some words and phrases that you can practice on your way to becoming the bravest versions of yourselves. 

 1  No

This is for the girl who's always rushing off from one project to the next, to the point that the things she's doing lose their meaning. Sure, at first, being busy may feel like being productive, but a Candy Girl knows the difference between being hard working and being overworked. A brave Candy Girl also knows her limits and is not afraid to say no when she already has too much on her plate.

 2  Sorry

This is for the girl who knows she has hurt someone. A brave Candy Girl owns up to her mistakes and is willing to swallow her pride and apologize, especially if she is at fault. More than saying sorry, she knows that the best way to make up for the mistakes done is to never do them again.

 3  Stop

This is for the girl who is asked to do what she's uncomfortable with. A brave Candy Girl does not let herself become a pushover by complying with whatever everyone else is telling her. She knows that she deserves better company, and is not afraid to call out other people when they start making her feel uncomfortable.  

 4  I can help

This is for the girl who is always too busy to lend out a helping hand, or the one who always reasons that "other people are helping anyway." A brave Candy Girl knows that everyone can make time to help out other people, either through her hands or through her words. 

 5  I can do this

This is for the girl who thinks that she’s not good enough. A brave Candy Girl knows what she's capable of and is not afraid of showing the world what she can offer. While other people choose to live the comfortable life, she challenges herself to continuously improve, follow her passion, and exceed people's expectations of her.

I'm a Candy Girl because I am a modern day Elle Woods, refusing to be boxed by stereotypes. Liking pink and other girly things does not mean I can’t do things society does not expect of me. I am a Candy girl because having flaws do not limit me from chasing my dreams and standing up for what I believe in. I can showcase my smarts and skills, all while looking my best.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
