I have no confidence
Its almost all but gone
In fact I don’t recall a time when I had any
I feel so small
So invisible most of the time
I have a love for others but not for me
And always think I am a failure
I expect the worst of me and am my worst critic
I highly praise others but criticise myself
I love my friends, but I don’t think they love me back
My confidence is shot to pieces from my own lack of self love
I have talked before of the importance of self esteem.
But it seems to me in order for me to move forward as a strong woman I need all these things to work in harmony with each other.
Too long I have been afraid of being who I am.
Too long I have seeked others approval above my own.
Too long I have hated who I am.
Too long I have despised looking in the mirror each day
Too long I have been jealous of how others look, of their buckets of self confidence.
Too long I have oozed sadness and shyness from every pore.
Too long I have spent walking into a room and wondering if the people in it like me.
So here goes,
Can I be positive about myself?
Can I love my own reflection?
Can I walk into a room with all the confidence I can muster and more?
Can I wear what I want to wear without feeling out of place?
Can I love myself?
Can I feel beautiful when I walk in a room?
Can I ooze confidence?
All key questions.
But the point is can I feel these things.
Yes I can.
It may take some time, but I consider it a goal
Can you feel confident?
I love this quite.
It words exactly how I want to feel.
It words how all women should feel.
We should be confident in who we are
We are strong, beautiful women
We can be confident without being too much.
Confident but humble
Courageous and kind
Strong and brave
Beautiful and true.
Be true to yourself ladies
Be confident in your character 💖
