Having confidence in yourself is when you love yourself to the fullest. It's the ability to walk out into the world and not letting the idea of others judging you get into your head. You know who you are and how you roll, and that's good enough for you. Confidence is when you look at yourself in the mirror and think, "I'm a bad bitch you can't kill me".

Confidence isn't just about how good you feel about your looks. It's more than that. Self-confidence is about trusting yourself enough to make the best decisions for yourself that you know will do you good. When you're self-confident, you also feel self-assured. You trust your judgment and your abilities. It's when you trust yourself enough that you are willing to get out of your comfort zone and feel the firmness and a presence of mind that you'll do amazing in whatever journey you decide to take that is unusual for you.

Having self-confidence and loving yourself is essential. When you don't have confidence in yourself, there is a chance things might not look too good for you. If you don't trust yourself, you don't believe in yourself, you don't acknowledge the fact that you are worth it, you don't feel comfortable with yourself, then guess what? Nobody else will. When you start trusting yourself others will too. People will believe in you if you do too. It's all about the energy you put out there. Good energy receives good things as opposed to bad energy. Remember, you choose how others view you, but most importantly, you choose how you view and feel about yourself.

Getting to that level of confidence that you've always dreamed of can be difficult. I speak from personal experience. But once you start believing, you start to feel excited because you feel a change coming. It's like a new you is being born. Here are a few steps that I took on my personal journey to self-confidence:

  • Envision yourself as your dream person- think of the type of person you've always wanted to be and keep that person in mind as a reminder to keep going until you get there
  • Keep daily affirmations- try telling yourself that you're going to do great today and every day. tell yourself that you are beautiful and deserving of love and of all the good things this world has to offer
  • Be spontaneous- try doing something that you're not used to doing every day, something that scares you. this helps you step out of your comfort zone and builds trust and assurance in yourself. however, don't feel pressured to do something you're truly not comfortable doing
  • Practice self-care- try scheduling a self-care day in which you dedicate time to your self. take this time to treat yourself and relax. let all the negative energy and tension go by doing things such as watching your favorite movie, listening to some music, meditating, initiating a pamper routine. something that makes you feel good in general
  • Set goals- start with small and achievable goals. for example, challenge yourself to get in at least 5-15minutes of exercise or eat a healthy meal for the day, or even something silly like "I bet I can take all these groceries inside in one trip". do anything that makes you feel accomplished at the end of the day and then move on to setting bigger goals
  • Commit- lastly, commit to yourself. remember that you're doing this for yourself and for your own happiness. be consistent in what you do and you'll slowly but surely get results. it's okay to take breaks every now and then because I know that sometimes it feels like you're stuck and can't go any longer, but trust me when I say you can. if I could do it, you can too โค
