Be confident. Confidence isn’t something to be afraid of, it’s something you need to embrace. You need to learn to love yourself and be confident in who you are before you can love others completely and before others can love you completely. This is something that I’ve struggled with my whole life and especially now struggle with daily and it’s gotten to a point where being self-conscious and so hard on myself all the time emanates from me and I come across as upset or serious or sad or rude or arrogant when honestly none of the above are remotely close to who I really am. I’ve recently taken a serious interest in reinventing and rediscovering myself and loving myself for who I am. Changing the negative things that I’m able to change and learning to accept and love the flaws that I can’t.
