I Am Confident

    I used to be so confident of myself,

    to a level that provoked everyone around me and perhaps made me come across as cocky, but I was really only confident, I never thought I was 'better' than anyone, to be honest, I don't give much attention to others anyway, so I can't really compare. I actually once had a job...

    People really shouldn't mistake my confidence

    for arrogance. I accept myself for who I am. Yeah, I have stage fright. As a singer/musician, it's absolutely terrible. I'm a nervous wreck each time I perform. But no one knows that. Why? It's simple. I love music, guitar, and singing and it's what I'm made for. Doing those...

    How I fake confidence?

    Same method I use to lie. I stare deep into people eyes. I never lose eye contact. That shows confidence and that you're paying attention even though you aren't. It's a habit now, I never break eye contact unless I'm naturally giving direct eye contact.

    My family keeps trying to talk me into doing

    something else with my life than aiming to be a teacher. I AM PROUD TO WISH TO BE A TEACHER! IT HAD BEEN MY DREAM FOR SO LONG AND YOU CANNOT TALK ME OUT OF IT. NOT NOW NOT EVER!

    Of course there are days

    where i began to doubt myself- but within minutes I steer myself onto the right track. it took awhile but now i can't help but think that I'm everything i need to be and that every part of me is amazing, and i wouldn't want it any other way.

    We tend to respond very differently to

    rejection depending on if we possess confidence or lack it. One response causes us to question our self worth while the other causes us to question is that particular person just plain blind....lmao. have a good night loved one.

    Today I went as a volunteer to the VBS

    (vacation bible school) and helped to get the summer camp for the kiddos organized. On Monday I will help in the kitchen to cook the meals! Despite of my stuttering and awkwardness, it was a good day.

    I've come to terms that I'm the ugly friend.

    I mean, I'm not a gnarly beast. I like to think I'm cute when I actually try. The thing is, I never want to try. I'm confident with my my body though. I don't hate anything about myself. Why hate yourself when there's nothing you can do? Why obsess over looks at all?
