Confidence is different from cockiness. Confidence is something I wish more people had because it relieves so much stress from the world and truly makes you happier. Cockiness is something I wish some people had less of…it’s when you compare yourself to others (red flag already) and you proceed to think you are better than them.
1) Keep your head held high (fake it till you make it). No one knows how you feel on the inside but you unless you share it with them by NOT being confident. Once you start acting like you’re confident on the outside, you will become confident on the inside.
2) Be Yourself! Sit down right now and list your best qualities. Make it a goal to let them shine, they make you you!!
3) Practice self care: get a hair cut, buy yourself new clothes, take a long bath. Embrace and love your body, it has given you the world.
Think about it. In the end, do you really care about what the stranger walking down the street will think of you? Do you care about YOUR happiness or do you care about what others think about your happiness? Anyone who doesn’t care about your happiness doesn’t deserve to be in your life. Love yourself and surround yourself with people who make you better.
You are the same person on the inside no matter how you look on the outside. Let your inner self show no matter what your outer self looks like today.
Love yourself today, tomorrow, and the next day. Confidence will change a lot more than changing your shape will.
JUST DO YOU, BE YOU!
