Dear Auntie Carol…
What do you think is a good way to boost self-confidence?
Auntie Carol says…
You might be surprised to hear this but Auntie Carol wasn’t always this confident! Once I was a very quiet, very SHY girl. I was!
My main problem was overthinking – I’d make certain situations seem SO big in my head until I was just a bag of nerves. The only solution I found was to stop thinking! Poppers don’t work!
Turn your brain OFF, put your headphones IN, turn your music ON! Just get on with it!
Here’s the songs that I listen to when I need to stop overthinking and be THAT bitch:
1. ‘no tears left to cry’ – Ariana Grande
Let’s be real, you probably do still have some tears left to cry! That’s why you’re here! Just listen to Ari – it makes everything better.
2. ‘Get Outta My Way’ – Kylie
The Australian princess of pop urges us girls not to settle for men who aren’t worth their time.
3. ‘Immaterial’ – SOPHIE
Trans producer SOPHIE’s song is a message of reclaiming your identity: “I could be anything I want… Anyhow, anywhere, any place, anyone that I want”.
4. ‘When I Rule the World’ – LIZ
It is IMPOSSIBLE to listen to this SOPHIE-produced song without feeling a little spunky.
5. ‘Girl Gone Wild’ – Madonna
This song isn’t about Madge’s fall at the Brits – it’s a BOP of female empowerment and sexual liberation.
6. ‘Hands on Me’ – Ariana Grande
Can you tell I like Ariana Grande? She can do no wrong. ESPECIALLY with this sexy, sexy song.
7. ‘Sissy That Walk’ – RuPaul
“Pick myself up, turn the world on its head”. IF I ever die, play this song at my funeral so I can sissy into the afterlife.
8. ‘Don’t Panic’ – Years and Years
We should ALL look up to Olly Alexander – SUCH a lovely young man, with a lovely smile and a lovely message.
9. ‘Good as Hell’ – Lizzo
Toss your hair, check your nails, and give yourself that self-love you deserve.
10. ‘Woman’s World’ – Cher
Cher’s newspaper wig in this music video is a lesson in self-confidence to us all.
11. ‘BOOMBAHYAH’ – BLACKPINK
You might not understand the lyrics to this K-Pop song but TRUST me it’ll get you doing the bass face (you know what I’m talking about).
12. ‘I Don’t Need A Man’ – The Pussycat Dolls
Remember – you don’t! Nobody does!
