Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights! I hope everyone is doing well. I’m doing pretty good myself despite the threat of a volcano erupting here in the Philippines.
You’re walking down the street one day and you saw a deranged man holding a knife, what would be your first reaction? Now, what do you think other people’s reaction would be when they saw you looking deranged and holding a knife?
I remember going to a work interview once. The people who interviewed me were nice, though something threw me off. It’s the fact that they started saying that they don’t judge and it is a “judgment-free” workplace. Can you guess what happened next?
Yep, I never got a call again but that’s all right; I can understand why. What threw me off is the fact that they claim they don’t discriminate when such things don’t exist. If they don’t discriminate, they’d hire me right there and then regardless of my qualifications. Yet, they didn’t and that’s okay because that is how the world works.
What am I getting at, you ask? Before we get to it, I’d like to ask your help in reaching 3k subscribers. Please like, comment, re-blog, share this blog on social media, tell your friends about it.

The plain and simple truth, people will judge things based on what is in front of them. Turns out, “not judging a book by its cover” is a piece of lame advice to give someone, especially if you are buying the book. Because if that’s the case, books should only have titles and nothing more. Why do you think companies pay good money for advertising?
Don’t tell me you don’t judge because that would be a flat out lie. You judged what brand of milk to buy based on your preferences. Nothing wrong with it, it’s human nature. Don’t tell me that you don’t care either because from what I’ve experienced, not caring is like saying you don’t what to grow. The thing is, how you present yourself matters. Don’t be mad if people don’t take you seriously when you go out and about dressed like a child. Stop thinking like you can’t change it because you could. You just won’t accept the fact that you are wrong and have been dismissing the truth all along.
Keep in mind that style doesn’t even have to be expensive. Even as simple as ironing your shirts or wearing a good fit could set you apart. You don’t even have to adopt a style, you have a favorite sneaker? Clean it once a week. Personal style is not about the clothes you wear but the effort you give in presenting yourself. Your style is not a way for you to impress people but a way to respect yourself. A lot of people demand respect but they can’t give enough respect to themselves.
Confidence is not something you wear, but what you wear enhances the perception of you. One can’t help but feel confident when looking at their best. Who wouldn’t like being the best version of themselves?
Our better judgment helps us make sound decisions. Placing importance on how you present yourself opens up opportunities. Step your best foot forward and bring out the best you.
To courage and freedom, and your style.
