    I'm Rocking It!

    Recently, I've had a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. I went on a slightly downward spiral after getting some bad news, and it started showing in my writing and my interactions with my friends. I felt lost, lonely, and confused. During the worst part of it, a very special...

    Finally!

    All through school I was picked on. For being quiet and overweight. Then I lost weight and people would disrespect me. I was quiet because I wouldn't let people in. I was afraid to be myself. Now I love me. i love my personality and who I am. It took alot of tears and alot of...

    I'm Happy to Be Me

    I'm not perfect; nowhere near perfect even. But I love being myself. It's hard, most of the time, it has its complexities and stuff, but I believe that if we don't accept ourselves and we don't try to love ourselves, then, how can we expect that other people will?

    I'm Confident In Who I Am

      i do not go around pretending to be anyone else. Nor do i wish i were something or someone else. i quite trying to fit into everybody else's mold of who i should be. i am confident in the person, the woman i am, in all situations.

    I Am Confident

    I go through phases, of course, when I doubt myself, but over the past couple of years. I've really learned to see that happiness can only come when you are happy with yourself and your decisions. And even though I'm young, I feel like no matter what happens, I will try and learn...

    Comeback

    Of course there is always the possible reversion. To return to complete depression and anxiety. Avoiding the world and missing out on the good and fun as well. For a long time - I had certain unrealistic goals. I wanted to be the ultimate. However, with help from on EP and in my...

    I Won't Back Down

    Well, it's confusing. I am happy with who I am and still depression and anxiety seem to be trying to fight me from either a conscious or sub-conscious level. It seems like an ongoing battle which ought to win with triumph for my new confidence and fun spirit. Well, I am just...

    Just One!

    Yeah, we are all one- but most conform. I am unique. I strive after ideals. I don't live in the world that produces such discomfort in almost everyone. For that- I fight a lot of sadness. However, I'm not going to corrupt myself for anyone. Got to live with integrity! So yeah, I...

    Moreso Now Than Ever

    I've come to terms with myself in the last couple of months. I used to be self conscious, there was never a time when I was completely okay with myself in the past even though I tried to fake it. But now, I am so grateful for everything that I have, and I wouldn't want to change...

    Hello There!!!

    I don't know what happened, but I have this new found confidence & love for ME. I love it! Where was this before? :) Anyway, this is the best gift I have given myself and no one can take it away. If nobody loves me, I know I have myself and my God :)

    The Mirror

    Having a daughter can do this to you. Or, it should. You want her to know that you feel good in your skin so she sees how it's done. The choices you make, the things you mumble to yourself, the books you read, the way you carry yourself, are constantly making...

    I used to be so insecure about myself

    and I would let others decide whether I was happy or sad. Now I don't give a crap about what people say about me because all of my flaws and imperfections make me who I am and I am happy about that. I feel so secure and comfortable in my own skin but the hardest part of doing...

    Confused

    Well, I don't know how to explain it briefly- but I will try. I am an awesome person. Lots of ambition, drive, confidence, and actual potential to fulfill my goals. However, people, especially girls, don't give me a chance to be friends with them. The few who have, well they...

    Accentuate the Positive/eliminate the Negative

      When one does not dwell on negative consequences one can be more 'self-confident' because one is worrying far less about failure or (more accurately) the disapproval of others following potential failure. One is then more likely to focus on the actual situation which...

    I Have To Believe I Can Fail

    In all things real and imagined, I believe and concede to the knowledge that I am not fully in control of my destiny now and for all the days I observe it's path. The fools laugh does not come in the wake of an educated decision having been implemented, I assure you.

    I Think So

    I think the older I get the more confident I am becoming. That is not to say I am not as confident in myself as I would like to be, I think it just means I am more confident in the person I am (or is that becoming?).So yes, I think I would say I am confident with who I am as a...
