The world is a scary place. It’s easy to feel like the only way to protect yourself is to hide your true self and play it safe. But what if I told you that wasn’t necessary? What if I told you that instead of protecting yourself, you could wear your confidence like it’s your armor?
That would be pretty cool, right?
Confidence is being aware that you are enough
When you are confident, you can stand in your truth and be yourself without needing to prove anything to anyone. You don’t need to change who you are or what you look like for someone else to love or accept you.
As women, especially as those trying our best not only with our bodies but also with our minds and souls (and sometimes hearts), we often forget that we are enough just as we are. We forget how beautiful we already are without changing a single thing about ourselves.
We can love ourselves wholly and completely right now—right this very second—no matter where we might be on the journey of self-acceptance; that’s confidence.
It can sometimes feel difficult because some things about yourself still bother you (I know I have plenty!).
But recognizing this doesn’t mean that those things need fixing; it means accepting them as part of who YOU ARE RIGHT NOW so that they won’t take up space in your mind anymore!
Once they stop taking up space in your mind—and start making room for other things—it becomes easier for confidence to surround them instead of letting them consume all the energy inside of us!
Stay positive about your body
You can show up to the world as your most confident self by staying positive about your body. It’s okay not to like every aspect of it, but it’s important to accept that there are things you don’t like and then focus on the aspects of your body that you do love.
It’s also important not to compare yourself with others—especially other women (including everyone on the Internet)! You don’t know how long they’ve worked toward their body goals.
So instead of looking at someone else’s success as something unattainable, try focusing on what makes them successful in the first place: confidence!
If someone seems confident in her abilities and her appearance, ask her how she got there; chances are good she’ll share some tips with you so that one day soon, when somebody asks, “How did you get so confident?” there’ll be an answer ready for them without hesitation or embarrassment because now YOU know exactly where those traits came from: inside YOURSELF.
- Don’t be afraid to try new things
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
- Don’t be afraid to be yourself
You are beautiful; remember it and be confident in that
You are enough, and you are a gift to the world. You’re amazing and deserve to feel that way every day.
This is a simple statement, but one that can be hard to believe sometimes.
If you don’t believe it, try repeating this mantra over and over until you start believing in your own worthiness: “I am worthy of love and belonging,” or “My value as an individual comes from being myself,” or even “I am beautiful inside and out”—whatever feels right for you when writing your own affirmation will work as well!
Remember: You are beautiful. There is no one way or look that will make you feel confident all the time, so don’t try and force yourself into something that doesn’t fit your personality or style just because it will make other people happy.
