HEYYY GIRLIES :)
Self confidence is such an important subject to me because throughout my past- and still now- I've been working at building my own self confidence. At some time in your life you will feel down on yourself. Some times more than others. Us girls are so focused on other peoples' opinions on things, that we start to base ourselves on what other people think. And then we just want to please them, but in the end we always turn out to be “not good enough”. This turns out into a negative cycle.
1. Try to please others
2. Still don't get the reaction you want
3. Get down on yourself - feel not good enough for others
4. Repeat :(
This can feel never ending and we might feel like we have no control. But what you need to realize is you do have control. We get so caught up in our overwhelming emotions that we forget what's important- loving yourself for who you are! We forget to do this all the time! To often we bring ourselves down, when we should be focusing on the good in us. If we spend all our time picking at ourselves and our so-called flaws, then of course we're going to feel bad about ourselves and we're never going to get anywhere. Every day you should pick out one thing that you like about yourself. Write it on a post it note and stick it on your wall. In no time you will have a wall full of things you love about yourself. This will help you so much when you feeling down because you can sit in your room and look at everything you have to be proud of who you are.
Don't get me wrong, loving yourself is not an easy thing to do, but there are people who love you for who you are. And if you be yourself, you will attract the right friends with the common interests. Yes, it is hard sometimes to see the good things others see in you. Sometimes, I find myself down and I have to remind myself to take a step back and think. The hard days? They pass. The sad days? They pass too. Just remember to find one thing you love about yourself and you will be a much happier person.
