TOTD: Are you annoying or charming?

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.

TOTD: How to be “cool” as an adult

What I learned about being cool.

When I was younger, I thought people could only be “cool” or “smart”.

But then I wanted to bridge that gap and be both at the same time.

Now, I realize that cool isn’t about not caring or about being smart. It’s about being self-confident in who you are, knowing yourself, and being unapologetically you.
