Do you truly like what you see in the mirror? I sometimes wonder if the person we are seeing through the mirror is the same person as what others view us as. Confidence is a critical aspect of our life, it affect us in so many ways. It can be wreck and build in so many different ways.
How many girls look into the mirror everyday and not like what they see? I used to be a victim of that as well, I see the slightest thing like the blackhead on my face, the fats on my tights and I can even find fault with my hair. This break me down, my confidence become lesser and lesser over the days as I compared myself with everyone else out there who I think are better than me.
Having low or no confidence will be the worst thing ever, it affected me in so many ways. There's this period of time where I don't attend events or try out anything new because I'm afraid of the what ifs. It also make me feel insecure about myself in so many ways.
But then one day I realised that I'm worth more than what's on the outlook, I stopped comparing myself with people out there and focus on myself. It's alright to acknowledge our own flaws but at the same time we have to focus on the good as well. This balance everything out, balance out the possibility of being too vain and over-confidence and still have the chance to improve ourself.
I slowly ease back into trying out new things, attending all the events I am invited to and start being more open to people and share my concerns with my closest friends and boyfriend. There are truly my pillar of support throughout the tough time of me trying to discover myself, it's tough but I learned so much about what's important in life. This let me build my confidence and now I feel much better about everything.
My advice here to all the girls and guys out there who feel like they are not good enough, is that you're worth more than what others think about you. You're better than you thought, you're an amazingly beautiful human that's created uniquely and do embrace that and love every part about yourself. Even if you have flaws, do know that it's only human since no one is truly perfect.
Change that little voice in your head telling you that you're not good enough into something positive. Because you truly are amazing, live beautiful and stay happy.
If you don't love yourself, who else will?
Have a lovely day everyone.
