Do you find yourself putting yourself down constantly? Saying "I look fat today","Why am I not as pretty as her"/"as handsome as him", "why does he/she always have people around them?", "why are they more fortunate than me?" Well time and time again you may have come across the same answer "I'm not confident enough..."
How to be more confident? I must admit being confident is difficult; cracking out of your shell and doing things your not comfortable doing is not entirely easy. But everyone has felt insecure at some point almost like their not "good enough" either. But I've heard a lot of "ugly talk" lately, and it makes me crazy because you guys are naturally beautiful and sometimes you can't see that because your so focused on your hate. I get it! Appreaciating your looks can be hard, especially if you've been hit by insults in the past or you can't see past the " tv standard of beauty"
But I want you to start by writing down your insecurities; identify the things that are making you feel this way. Are they regrets? Unmanagable hair? Acne? Whatever it may be write it down with everything you've ever felt/ thought about yourself/ your insecurities; it may take you a while but when your done make sure you rip up the pieces of paper you have written your insecurities on, so that you end up feeling free of your insecurities! Afterwards maybe talk to your friends/ family, people that understand you and how you feel and people that care about you; make sure to try to get rid of any bad feelings with the people around you. And if you've ever made any mistakes make a comeback (almost like Britney Spears just make sure you don't make a Circus!) everyone has insecurities and no one is absolutely perfect.
If there is anything in your life right now that is making you feel bad get rid of it. Because life is full of so much happiness! And if something is making you unhappy just get rid of it! It might take the bad vibe out of your life and help create a better you!
Next I want you to identify what you have succeeded in! Don't be a victim of yourself! I want you to sit yourself down and list the good things about yourself! Don't underestimate yourself! Are you a good artist? Are you good at cooking? Baking? Do you have a good sense of humor? Are you intelligent (even if you don't show it)? Give yourself credit for these things because I know your amazing! The next step is being thankful for what you have! Sure you don't have those shoes, those clothes, and the popularity he/she has but you do have your attitude towards your own life. Don't give yourself a hard time because you want to be like "them". Be positive even if you don't feel positive, if you act positive you'll eventually feel like its true! Accept compliments well, when you get a compliment take it and don't question it! Don't dwell on the contrary! And do me a favor, when you look in the mirror smile at yourself; trust me it helps after a while!
If your not naturally confident you can totally fake it! After a while if you keep acting a certain way you'll start to believe that life is just a little better being confident. And rememeber to stick to your own values and make sure to never lose you ideals in whats wrong and whats right!
Your unique and you make yourself what you are! You never have to follow what others think or do but if you like something genuinely (for example a certain style of clothing) you can follow the trend because you want to not because you think you have to! Remember confidence is beautiful! Make happines and confidence a habit!
