Hi friends! Today I’m going to switch it up & get a little vulnerable with you all. I had no intentions of writing this blog nor was it on my blog calendar. But after having a bit of a rough night last night I figured why not share my feelings with the world? I can’t be the only one who has these feelings after all.
I’ve never considered myself to ever really be self-conscious nor have I considered myself super confident. There are days where I wake up and think “hell yeah, you’re the best” & other days where I feel like a sack of potatoes. And yet there are people out there who exude self-confidence. They’re the ones that can talk to anyone and everyone. The ones who are unapologetically themselves. And I can’t tell you how many times I wished that was me.
We don’t come to this Earth with any preconceived notions about how it’s going to go or how we’re going to feel. The experiences that we go through shape our perception of ourselves & others. Social media has taken the world by storm these days and it can be extremely easy to compare yourself to the people that we see on Instagram. I’ve also been through my fair share of heartbreaks both with friends and significant others and it can leave you feeling like you’re not worthy. And yet we hide these feelings because confidence is sexy. Self-esteem issues are not. But how can we help ourselves when it feels like there’s so much pressure to look or act a certain way?
But humans are like flowers. We can’t expect to grow into a beautiful flower overnight. We have to bloom into who we want to be as an individual. And yes, some of this is based on our experiences. But how we view ourselves & how we let others treat us is solely up to us. If you love yourself enough, you know when to walk away when a friendship or relationship isn’t right. You know who’s worthy of your time and your efforts. And you know that the most important aspect of life is that you have yourself. Because no one understands you the way you do.
But that’s easier said than done, right? I can talk about confidence all damn day and still be the most self-conscious person out there. Which is why I’ve put together a little challenge. Confidence is like a muscle. You have to work on it day by day in order to get stronger.
This challenge is one activity a day to help you realize your true potential and help you love you for who you are. I will be doing it as well & will be tracking my progress on Instagram! Follow me here to follow along!
So what do you say? Ready to love yourself? I know I am!
