I Am Confident

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,323 People

    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?

    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.

    Confidence is not ‘they will like me’.

    Confidence is ‘I’ll be fine if they don’t’ — things everyone should know

    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...

    Insecure people are offended by secure

    confident people. The insecure person will easily take offense by the confident tone of the emotionally secure individual. It's sad how there are some people who would rather attack, judge and condemn the very people they subconsciously admire. As for those of you who do know...

    I think it's funny when people think I'm not

    confident just because I asked for someone's opinion . I'm one of the most confident people you will meet . Especially on here . I won't be stuck up and I WILL ALWAYS STAY HUMBLE but I know I'm attractive and there's nothing wrong with it . The reason why I'm able to stay so...

    and rescue class. It's what I expected it to be, highly disciplined and will work us physically. I'm sure it'll work us academically more than regular school. When one person doesn't push in a chair or a cellphones goes off, we all get punished. We had to do push ups because...

    I'm so proud of how far I've came in life.

    Three years ago I was this unsure, ultra quiet, shy girl. And now? Now I'm confident in myself and what I enjoy doing. I love the way I look and dress, I'm proud of my hobbies, my sexuality and gender, and overall I'm happy with myself. I know life has its ups and downs but I'm...

    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...

    everything about myself yet, but I've gotten a hell of a lot better at believing in myself and respecting myself than about a year ago. I've been working out and dieting so that has helped a lot. I'm also smarter at dealing with life problems now. So screw the insecurities and...

    Everyone is attracted to confidence. However, I believe that confidence is often misunderstood. My theory on confidence is developed from a lifetime of sport participation and a coaching career. Here is in my opinion what true, useful confidence is not: 1. Confidence is...

    very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost." He also once said, "One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation. I agree. I live by these words
