It begins within – Self awareness

She lacks confidence, she craves admiration insatiably. She lives on the reflections of herself in the eyes of others. She does not dare to be herself.
~ Anaïs Nin

Beautiful woman, yes you are.

You’re beautiful, embrace it.

You’re smart, make it known.

You’re successful, celebrate it.

Any affirmation that comes from anywhere else but yourself serves no purpose, honor yourself.

People’s approval shouldn’t recharge you in any way. Their validations are too fickle to sustain anyone.

A confident woman does not bargain on other people’s acceptance of her. She’s well aware of who she is, flaws and all.

You shouldn’t modify who you are to accommodate anyone. No, it shouldn’t be on your account that they feel good about themselves.

Distance yourself from people that instill doubt in you, discredit and pull you down. Insecurity resents being solo, it longs for warmth. Never allow it to tuck you in.

Confidence is something that we battle with one way or another. It does not come naturally but you can certainly gain it through living an authentic life; being unapologetically you.

Must you have people cheering you on to feel safe?

Are you content with who you are?
