What does it mean to you to have confidence? To me, confidence is when one loves themselves and aren’t afraid to be themselves. There’s a big difference between having confidence in yourself and being conceited. People that lack confidence tend to think that you are being conceited if you love yourself. Never let them get to you because they are going through their own issues. Confidence comes first, if you lack confidence then there is no way you are able to be yourself and slay your own style. Growing up I can say that I’ve went through my struggles of not having confidence. It all stopped when I was a junior in high school. I want to give you all different ways that can help you gain confidence in yourself that helped me. The key thing that you want to remember is God created us, and he doesn’t make mistakes. So, by you not loving yourself you’re saying God messed up. Praying to the one and only every day, and asking him for guidance will continue to help you gain some self-love. Another thing you want to do is, look at yourself in the mirror and point out all the beautiful flaws you have. I say that because you have to start off by loving your flaws. If we love our flaws we are 1 step closer to loving ourself. The scripture says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14.
