The Valiant Blogger Award

I got nominated for an award yesterday, which is something I haven’t been in a while, and funny enough I actually got nominated for another award later that day. What a weird coincidence.
I’ll probably post about the other award later this week. (I thought about making just one post presenting both awards, but then it got complicated and I had to think too much, so I decided to do it the usual way).

I guess we should do the normal thing now then.

The award is called the Valiant Blogger Award and I was nominated by the lovely Riya, who, I might add, is the only stranger I’m friends with on Snapchat. So yeah, there’s that ;P
Thank you for the nomination, it was an awesome surprise!

These are the rules:

  1. Post the award on your blog.
  2. Provide a link to the Hall of Valor.
  3. In 200 words or less, share about the greatest challenge in your life and how you got though it
  4. Give one piece of advice to people who are struggling with something in their life.
  5. Than the person who nominated you and nominate a new blogger for the award.

Now, following rule number 2, I will provide you with a link to the Hall of Valor. Check it out!

I’m having a hard time figuring out the “greatest challenge and how I got through it” part, ’cause what if I don’t really think I’m through it yet?
I’m probably gonna have to cheat then. So much for doing it the normal way *sigh*

I think my greatest challenge in my life is myself. I’m my own worst enemy, critic and heartbreaker and that has and still causes me a lot of grief and stress. I have a hard time letting go and just letting myself be. As you probably can imagine, that can be quite stressful and taxing.
I’m definitely still figuring out who I am and trying to find my voice and it’s like one side of me accepts that, but another part me can’t come to terms with the fact that I don’t have everything figured out. Does that make sense to you?
Other people don’t demand much of me, I’m the one setting the bar too high for myself. (And I’m already only 159 cm tall)
I’m so grateful for my parents, especially my mom, who’s not afraid to scold me when I’m being too hard on myself.
But yeah, I hope to one day win over myself.

My advice to other people struggling would probably be, to not be afraid of it. Don’t be afraid to be at rock bottom, maybe even try staying there and cultivate that darkness. Listen to some sad or angry music, be sad and/or angry and realise it won’t kill you. Another advice is to talk about it. The second you let it out it’ll be like the burden is already much smaller.

And now, let’s move onto my nominees, (the exciting part of this):

Full Of Life

Scattered Sentences

The Busy Bookworm

The Mint Thief

Haylsaway

I really like all of these blogs so I hope you’ll enjoy them as well πŸ™‚

Until next time x

  1. Congratulations on being nominated for this. I think you picked a good challenge to talk about. It’s a daily battle, isn’t it? I can most especially relate to what you said here that “Other people don’t demand much of me, I’m the one setting the bar too high for myself.”

    Some of us are too hard on ourselves, and I’m also one of those. I try to think of the nice things about me sometimes… I dont know why it gets so difficult. Anyway, this is becoming such a long comment. Haha!

    Good post! I’ll have it included in the Hall of Valor as soon as I finish talking here. (Sorry, my hands keep typing.)

    1. It really is. I try to do that too:) I’m glad I’m not the only one though, (purely for selfish reasons, since I’m of course sad that others have to feel like that too).
      Heh, I’m the master of long comments so don’t you worry about it πŸ˜€ That’s awesome!

      1. By the way, I’m looking for guest posters on my blog. Not sure if you’d be interested. I posted about it yesterday and I still have room! 😊
