I am not that much of a confident person. If you were to ask people to describe me, confidence would not be a word that would come out of their mouth.
I have struggled with this word my whole life. I have always been a shy little boy. Even when I think I have the power to be that loud person that has the attention of every one in the room, it still makes me want to crawl into a whole.
There have been times when I have had to take center stage in everyone’s presence. I survived. But, I remember the feeling of burning liquid fire on my face, the feeling of being scared to move because my legs have ran away from my body, what was I standing with? Who knows, maybe faith?
Anyways, I have made it a goal for me to work on this.
What has helped me is the fact that I tell myself that people really don’t care about you. I don’t mean that in a bad way. I refer to, if you are thinking that your hair looks bad, some people haven’t even noticed. Or other minor things like that.
As an over thinker I always think of what others are thinking about me. I am putting thoughts in their head that they aren’t even thinking. That only hurts me.
Another way I have tried to better my confidence is my loving my body. I know I am not a Calvin Klein model, but hey, I’m not too shabby you know? Some times we don’t see how great we look and we hate everything about ourselves even when its not true.
I am still working on this little thing called confidence, there are so many other things involved too. Sometimes it just might not be your day, you feel gloomy, its just not in you. And that’s totally fine, shit happens. But we have to pick ourselves up and move on.
Because you are worth it, you are great, I believe in you.
We are great, we are Confident.
