finding your confidence


I didn’t find my confidence overnight, it took years to develop and to feel comfortable in my own skin. Being someone who has always been the odd girl out, and overweight, I never felt good enough or pretty enough. But the truth is was I good enough and I am beautiful, I just did not let myself believe that.

What helped me find my confidence was doing things that I wanted to do to better myself. I started to surround myself with people who support, love and encouraged me. I started reading more books, drinking more tea and spent more time outside.

In times when I felt low, I would remind myself of the following:

  1. I am beautiful.
  2. I am worthy.
  3. I can offer love.
  4. I can make a difference.
  5. I am talented.
  6. I am creative.
  7. I am smart.
  8. I care about others.
  9. I am important.
  10. I love myself.

Having confidence in yourself, and finding your self-love, is not selfish. I can not love others and care for others if I don’t love myself, and I don’t take care of myself.

Find your confidence, and don’t be afraid to show it.
