Self Confidence is believing in yourself. Of course this isn’t the only defining quality of self confidence, but it’s such an important one. When I watch the Ted X talks they inspire me and reflect aspects of my everyday life on what really matters and what doesn’t. My journey with self confidence is something I still journey through everyday. One thing I always strongly believe in is something my Father use to tell me all the time, and that is to just be yourself and stay true to yourself. You must love yourself before you can love those around you. Surround yourself with people that make you feel like you matter. Nothing is worse than being constantly put down by people, and especially in a digital world it’s easy for this to happen everyday without the act of personal confrontation. Self Confidence is being honest and positive. It is knowing that even if you fail, you will not back out and run due to fear, but you will keep trying, trying and trying until you have reached your ultimate goal.
Staying true to yourself is something I feel strong about, because as a society we conform in so many ways. As a society that has a majority of views for certain areas and a painfully endless, endless line of judgement in the world. In a visual world it is very often we judge solely on what lies on the surface but not what is deep within. When I use to look at Youtube comments, it really wonders me how there are such negative people in this world who will use their words to cut and tore someone apart. Self Confidence is having the realisation that how you think of yourself is more important than how others think of you. You know yourself better than anyone, you know what makes you happy, scares you and inspires you. In a deeply judgmental world, remember to remind yourself, who I am is not defined by the people around me.
