What is the difference between being annoying and charming?
I had a discussion with a friend the other day about the concept of Creepy vs Romantic.
The idea is that there is a very thin line between the two. The only thing that separates whether or not you see someone’s actions as “creepy” or “romantic” is whether or not you like that person back.
The same concept applies to “annoying” and “charming” in my opinion.
Just to add on to what I say in the video, I think this self-awareness could also help when you come across to other people. Its good to know whether or not you’re coming across as charming or annoying to the people around you.
This is easy if you know whether or not they like you, haha.

We all know that this can be one of the most emotionally exhausting parts of our life so it’s good to get some insights from people who may have way more expertise than us in these areas.
“From Internet sensation Anna Akana comes a candid and poignant collection of essays about love, loss, and chasing adulthood.
In 2007, Anna Akana lost her teen sister, Kristina, to suicide. In the months that followed, she realized that the one thing helping her process her grief and begin to heal was comedy. So she began making YouTube videos as a form of creative expression and as a way to connect with others. Ten years later, Anna has more than a million subscribers who watch her smart, honest vlogs on her YouTube channel. Her most popular videos, including “How to Put On Your Face” and “Why Girls Should Ask Guys Out”, are comical and provocative, but they all share a deeper message: Your worth is determined by you and you alone. You must learn to love yourself.
